    Their most popular shows cancelled and nothing but Cops and Campus PD reruns with endless girls gone wild infomercials?

    Yep, like the article says, "as is." G4 is a dead man walking.

    "G4 will remain as is" = until they figure out what channel they want to turn it into. It won't fold, they won't give up that distribution.

    I don't watch G4 or Style. They should get Leo back on G4. But I know they wouldn't.

    Why would he want to? He's busy running his own little empire.

    According to a filing to the State of CT PURA by Cablevision, NBCU is shutting down G4 on 10/10.

    NBCU should move universal sports or even chiller in to that slot to get the channels on to more systems in HD as well comcast that does not have both on most systems.

    I doubt that carriage contracts would let them substitute an already existing channel into that slot. They already have to re-negotiate with most carriers when they change an existing channel to something new.

    I really don't see them letting the agreements they still have for G4 to go to waste. Layoff notices with a state's labor department doesn't mean the channel is going away. They could easily program it with two guys and a control room in New York.
