G4: plunging to earth at Mach 4

Latest news about the G4 network: after firing founder and CEO Charles Hirshhorn, they've decided to air reruns of The Man Show, a show whose high point was footage of women jumping on trampolines.

This after their decision to air reruns of Fastlane, a show that ran on Fox for one year.

Basically, they're trying to be a generic network appealing to the Beavis and Butthead segment of the population; that they're buying reruns of third-rate shows rather than making their own mindless dreck doesn't speak well for them financially, I would think.

I'm wondering when the rats will start to leave the sinking ship, and thinking about what I want to do to celebrate when G4 dies a richly deserved horrible death.
