    This goofy idea keeps being repeated over and over through the decades yet TV still exists. I remember back when playing with my Super Nintendo they were saying the same crap about video game systems, "Oh, video games are stopping kids from watching tv!" No it isnt.

    Provide some good content and people will watch it. I used to watch X-play religiously back when they did like 5 reviews per episode and had 5 shows a week because they went through MORE games than all the video game mags i could get my hands on combined. I only stopped watching when they went down to 1 per show and they even started cutting their shows down to 4 a week.

    If you build it.... they will come.
    That holds true for everything.

    I think the reason TV is still around (and is as strong as it currently is) is more of a generational thing, to be perfectly honest. I know lots of younger folks who forgo cable TV in general and wait for stuff to either be released in season box sets or to pop up on Netflix.

    I kind of thought "Maxim" and "FHM" took that title over. Maybe they just are more blatant about it, or revel in it more.

    "Esquire" seems more towards guys with some money to spend or pretensions toward sophistication. That doesn't preclude douchebaggery but it seemed to have decent articles, the few times I read it.

Convince yourself they're cheering for you. You do that, and some day, they will. And that's how Sue Cs it."- Sue Sylvester, "Glee"

    which is why they are aiming the channel at that demographic...its a group with more income than G4s current target demo and they wouldn't need as many viewers but can still make money on ads

    kind of how The Golf Channel manages to make money year after year

    Thats talking about cable, not tv.
    People still don't sit around their ipads to watch a film with the family.

    Your not....ONE...OF...US....lol

    This really reminds me when MTV started its slow push into oblivion and instead of wanting to be known as a music channel...a kick ass one at the start ...they wanted to be more known as the channel that Snooki shows her ass on.
