technut Yes, from some of the comments Leo has made, I don't think he'd be in a rush to make another show in Canada.. he doesn't want to travel and be away from home as much.

Maybe if he could produce the show himself in his TwiT Live studio...?

whitbyterry I doubt that Leo will come back to TV unless he realizes he needs the money. He is enjoying the new Twit Live work a lot.

Lindsay649 Rumours continue to fly around the Rogers/City empire in Toronto that Leo will get another crack at televison through City Tv. Maybe Mr. Ted likes older people....although Peter Silverman did not survive. As you know the internet lady was dumped with a few hours notice earlier this year. Lets wait and see.

Mike Demers What has replaced TechTV for me is all of the spin offs that were mentioned earlier in this thread. Systm, DL.TV,tekzilla, the totally rad show and soon Twit Live. They are all doing their video podcasts in HD (h.264) I have Itunes running on my HTPC and always have a couple of shows ready to watch. Basically the same crew from the old TechTV but now in HD!!

whitbyterry Cnet has their Cnet Live show weekly. It is similar. Give that a try.

Pizza Beats I can't believe that on all the channels in the U.S., there isn't one call in computer help show like Lab with Leo.

G4, which is supposed to be tech tv, doesn't have this kind of show now that Leo was cancelled.

Maybe this type of show is "boring" for G4 but I liked the old "Screen Savers".

AOTS is ok but it doesn't answer how-to tech questions.

whitbyterry It could be one show per month!

rsambuca Wow, they surprised the heck out of me. After no new shows for over a month, it looks like they are finally burning off the last 13 episodes.

Pizza Beats The problem with G4 is one minute you are watching a new show reviewing Madden 09 from this week and then the next minute, the episode is from 2007.

The Hardware Girl from the most recent episodes is definitely the hottest yet.

Corizzle No you are right, a new episode once a week (that airs on Fridays I believe). I can see how it would be confusing since they rerun the show so much

nicohockey9 Sorry my mistake, but still I believe electric playground and reviews on the run only get a new episode once every week I believe. Unless im wrong

This channel is flying fast downhill. The only shows that get new episodes are Attack of the show and X-play everything else is repeats. they need to either sell off the channel to someone who wants it or they need to pull there act together because im sure they are loosing subscrbers by the thousands right now.
Electric Playground and Reviews on the Run get new episodes. I agree they need to get some new programming though, too much repetition on the channel

technut If you want to see Leo these days, tune him in at http://twitlive.tv/

It is the live video feed from his studio. You can watch the production of the many TWiT podcasts, and more. The production schedule is posted here.
