Geeks, already saddened over the recent news that geek-centric station G4 was rebranding itself as the Esquire Network and switching its focus to men who have lives and make money, got a further kick to the groin with the news of the network announced two new seres, tentatively titled How I Rock It and Risky Listing. Neither of which cover anything involving computer games, sci-fi, or Star Wars action figures.
How I Rock It will feature profiles of “a variety of athletes, musicians, celebrities, designers and other influencers.” It will be hosted by Baron Davis, an NBA player most recently with the New York Knicks, and who has probably never read a comic book in his life.
The other program, titled Risky Business, features “New York real estate agents charged with making deals on the city's bar, restaurant and nightlife spaces.” This is a topic few geeks know about, as they live in the basements of their parents’ homes or those of other loved ones.
If it makes geeks feel better, the Esquire Network will also be showing reruns of Parks and Recreation and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, which may soothe the loss of their beloved Attack of the Show.
The switchover from G4 to the Esquire Network is scheduled for April.
