G4 makes staff and schedule cuts to X-Play, Attack of the Show

Sad news for me at least. I love AOTS and X-Play. Thanks to Joystiq for the report

G4's X-Play and Attack of the Show have been hit by cuts and layoffs.
Following up on information given to us by reliable sources -- that
the network's two flagship shows have been hit by reductions -- a G4
representative sent us a statement confirming much of the information.
X-Play , which upped its production schedule back in December, will
now be reduced to three original episodes per week. Attack of the Show
will now air four original episodes per week. Both shows will scale
down starting March 2. Although G4 would not comment on "personnel
matters," it could confirm that fewer episodes did result in a staff
reduction. Cost saving will go into "more original programming in
2009." The network was clear to state that "this is not a budget cut"
and G4 "remains dedicated to these core franchises." As always, if you
were affected by the layoffs or have more information, please feel
free to contact us . G4 makes staff and schedule cuts to X-Play,
