Icons and Filter “Back” on G4

Ok. I am still not convinced this is completely true because it sounds exactly like something G4-critics, like me, would say sarcastically. However, I’ll report this just in case… Variety.com reports that Filter will be back but will have absolutely nothing to do with video games. What it will be about was not mentioned. Icons will also be back but it will be about pop culture icons, not game designers and game series. Not only that, but Attack of the Show will also be changed to an all around male-interest show.

One of [Laurie] Finn’s priorities will be to scout people to profile when “Icons” relaunches this summer. The “Biography”-style skeinskein has been revamped to focus on figures that appeal to young men, including J.J. Abrams and Bryan Singer. She’ll also continue to strengthen the lineup of guests visiting G4’s live, studio-based series.

In addition, both “Filter” and “Attack of the Show” will be relaunched in June with a scaled-back focus on technology. Heavier emphasis will be on attitude, humor and a broader range of male-oriented topics.

What. The. Hell.
