Gamer.TV's Successor Revealed

The excellent Bravo show Gamer.TV which was needlessly canned last week has now had its successor named and screened. The abysmally named Playr, presumably without the E to avoid references to the Challenge spinoff that crashed and burned 2 years ago, debuted on Bravo this weekend. I didn't see it but given that the same producer is behind both series and they appear to have the same basic remit it brings to mind again the question of why Gamer.TV was cancelled in the first place if a near identical show is going to replace it in damn near the exact same timeslot. Proper judgement will have to be reserved for when I actually see the programme next week.

Playr is on Bravo2 on Saturdays at 2:30pm and repeated Sundays on Bravo at 11am. There are 2 spinoffs in the form of Playr2 (Gamer.TV Extra) and Playr Guide (I'm thinking GameFAQs TV).

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
