Adam Sessler Leaving G4

Quote
Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam's last episode as host of G4's "X-Play" airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV's "Gamespot TV" in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie "noobz" and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.

He had a great run. G4 went thru so many changes in the past decade. He's very lucky to have hung in there for over 13 years.

He's got to get rid of that thing he seems to think is a beard, though. I know he finally gave in to shaving his head, but that isn't helping.

Hm, looks like the parting is not friendly. That's a shame, because he's probably not getting a nice on-air sendoff.

Considering how poor G4 has been as a legitimate source of...anything, this is probably a good thing.  Now Sessler can move on to a place where he actually makes an impact, and G4 can get on with showing more boobies and reruns.

Haven't watched G4 in awhile but he always seemed the most competent and clearly spoken gamer on the network.

Wherever he lands, may he have a co-host that isn't a complete moron.  I was hoping Webb was leaving....

I'm surprised he hasn't left sooner considering how terrible the channel is. Now I guess Morgan Webb's the only TechTV Alum left.

I couldn't remember if it was OO or GG. Hoping it is OO so it's still accessible. I have a felling it's GG though.

I'l bee onest. I havnt loocked for it.

On a side not, did anyone happen to see XPlay's review of Star Wars Kinect? It was classic, the review starts, they show the dancing part, and say "It sucks". The whole review takes about 10 seconds.

Sezzlar then comes on and says "I always wanted to do that, because some games are so bad we really shouldn't have to take the time to explain why." Good old Adom.

It looks like Kevin Pereira from Attack of the Show has also left G4 today. 

Clearly something is going down.  Maybe G4 felt that they didn't have enough hot female hosts doing stupid things in between reruns.

To thicken the plot: It looks that both the WWE and UFC organizations were separately looking to purchase G4 and transform the channel as of last summer.

It's only 2 hours a week, but as it became SyFy's #1 watched show I don't think they'll be getting rid of it anytime soon. It's also one of the reasons I started watching wrestling again as it came to my favorite channel.
Now I'm hooked on both WWE Monday Night Raw & Friday Night Smackdown!

That's gotta hurt G4. I never thought Kevin would ever leave. He was like a fly on the wall that overstays its welcome. Well, they don't have much now. I expect Comcast to make an announcement about the channel soon.
