Attack of the Show! (partially lost G4 variety series; 2005-2013)

Attack of the Show! was a daily variety series that premiered on G4 on March 28, 2005. It quickly became one of the most popular/staple shows on the network, developing a loyal fanbase along with X-Play. As G4's original programming began to fade away, these two shows lasted through even G4's attempts to push most video game content away from the main part of the channel. The show premiered new episodes on G4 until January 23, 2013, making the total number of episodes produced 1,941. Repeats were pulled from G4 the following month.
Due to the quite large amount of content, not all of it has managed to make its way online. Repeats have also left international stations such as G4 Canada (despite the still heavy rotation of dated shows like Call for Help on said network). The quickly dated nature of the show, heavy use of copyrighted material, as well as the death of G4 makes any sort of home video release unlikely.
However, G4 officially uploaded 321 full episodes of the show onto the Internet Archive from between the years of 2008 and 2011. A number of clips and full episodes can also be seen on YouTube.
