'ATTACK OF THE SHOW' Introduces New Co-Host Olivia Munn as the G4 Series Relaunches May 15 With Fresh Content, Set, Graphics, and New Interactive Elements That Let Viewers Join the Conversation

Featuring the Latest and Liveliest Info on Technology, Games, Sports, Cars, Movies, Parties, and, of Course, Women, 'AOTS' Is The Go-to Show for Men 18-34

LOS ANGELES, April 19 - ATTACK OF THE SHOW, G4's daily trip to the digital water cooler, introduces a new co-host, Olivia Munn, who joins co-host Kevin Pereira as the series relaunches on May 15 with fresh content categories, a new set and new graphics. The new AOTS will also feature exclusive interactive components that engage the viewer across a variety of platforms. The new ATTACK OF THE SHOW will premiere on Monday, May 15, at 7:00 PM ET/PT.

New AOTS co-host Olivia Munn brings a fresh perspective to the live topical show. Munn, an actress and Oklahoma native, has done courtside and sideline reporting for Fox Sports, as well as reporting for Sports Illustrated's special college football issue. She has appeared in commercials for Nike, Pepsi, Hewlett-Packard and Frito-Lay, and will be featured in the upcoming The N series, "Beyond the Break."

As co-host of AOTS, Munn will also be reporting live from the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles May 9-12 during G4's weeklong coverage of the world's largest video game convention. In addition, Munn will co-host G4's second season of FORMULA D, the network's high-octane series about the competitive, tire-screeching sport of drifting, premiering this June.

Munn co-hosts AOTS alongside Kevin Pereira, a computer and gaming expert who has created a gaming online bulletin board, an Internet radio show ("Pointless Audio," which streamed more than 30 gigabytes of RealAudio each week), and an Internet video show, "Pointless TV." Pereira has also hosted or appeared on G4's PULSE, ARENA, and g4tv.com. Along with Munn, Pereira will be reporting from the convention floor during G4's extensive live coverage of E3.

The relaunch of AOTS adds a new, cutting-edge interactive component to the show. More than just another content category, interactivity will be the connective tissue that informs all the new segments. The show's new set will feature a video chat installation that allows AOTS viewers to join in and interact directly with the show from their computer webcams at home. Rendering viewer call-ins a relic of the past, ATTACK OF THE SHOW will check in face-to-face with audience members every day -- actually putting them on the show. Viewers' feedback will also be reflected in real time via online and cell phone SMS voting on topics and segments that come up during the show.

"ATTACK OF THE SHOW will evolve to be G4's flagship program, exemplifying the new direction that G4 as a network is heading in," said Neal Tiles, President of G4. "It's the only program on TV that embraces the new and the interesting among the male 18-34 demographic. ATTACK OF THE SHOW has found a loyal following by feeding guys a daily dose of what matters most to them."

Among the topics that the newly relaunched AOTS will cover in its daily broadcasts are:

Internet: Cool new podcasts, must-see web videos, and the websites and apps guys cannot live without -- AOTS combs the Internet and serves up the best of the web everyday.

Games: With the next generation of game consoles in hand, video games are more important than ever, and AOTS stays on the edge with up-to-the-second information and opinions.

Tech & Gadgets: If it can make a phone call, play an mp3 or locate your position on the planet, it's probably a piece of tech guys are going to want. AOTS sinks its teeth into the latest gadgets and gear with meaningful, information-filled reviews and features.

Movies & TV: Whether it's what's worth watching this week or what was on last night, these are the subjects everyone's talking about. AOTS is there with guests and inside information about the TV and movies that matter.

Sex, Parties & Women: Perhaps the most important topics of all to AOTS viewers. The series unveils new franchise segments such as "MySpace Girl of the Week" (weekly profiles of selected girls from MySpace.com) and "The Lush," in which bars and clubs send in video requests to AOTS inviting the hosts to come hang out at their bar, and AOTS viewers decide which one is worthy. Pereira and Munn then head out to party with the locals.

Comics: Filling a void not covered anywhere on TV, AOTS nails down the world of comics with the weekly franchise segment "Fresh Ink." AOTS will also offer live blow-out coverage from Comic-Con in San Diego this July.

Sports: Active participants and passive watchers alike will score with AOTS' new sports coverage.

Music: In addition to showcasing live bands every week, AOTS gets deeper into music with new record releases and reviews.

Automobiles: From reviews of the latest cars to up-close looks at auto tech, AOTS focuses on the cars guys dream of -- and the ones guys actually own.
