Arena is a G4 (formerly G4techTV) TV show hosted by Lee Reherman and Kevin Pereira. It is devoted entirely to teams competing against one another via multiplayer video games. Repeat episodes continue to air on G4. Some video games overlap episodes, such as Unreal Tournament 2004. Teams are also given a chance to talk about themselves and explain the origin of their team name. Some notable team names include Team Mizota (named for Diane Mizota of Filter) (lost), Team Corpse Factory (won), and Team ZoMBiE, who won the Tournament of Champions in 2004 to become the Ultimate Arena Champions. The show was originally hosted by Wil Wheaton and Travis Oates, but both hosts left due to issues between them and the producer. They were replaced by Lee Reherman and Michael Louden before the current hosts were introduced, The show was placed on hiatus in early 2005 due to budget problems, but sources say that a new season will be produced once they secure a finacial budget. The show continues on G4 in rerun form every weekday at 2:30pm ET/PT.
