Stupid TV Execs

Ok, first Comcast screws around and turns TechTv into G4...which sucked. They cancelled Martin Sargent's show. In some ways it was good, though. was started by a guy that left TechTv.

Now they're going to combine E! with G4, because G4 can't get the ratings. These are two totally different audiences. I watch both, but that's because I've got some sort of disease that makes me care about celebrity gossip. It's not healthy, I know, but there's no cure. I sometimes watch the anime on G4, but mostly I don't watch it because I don't care about gaming.

But I'm not typcial. The average viewer of E! is women and the average G4 viewer is a teenage male. These two demographics are diametrically opposed. How are you going to sell advertising for neutrogena and Xbox 360? There is no common ground there.

I have this great idea for a show. Just let the Girls Gone Wild guy do a tv show that's a little milder.
