You've seen the billboards all over LA: yes, G4's "Attack of the Show" has a new co-host by the name of Candace Bailey. After Olivia Munn left @AOTS to do segments on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and then co-star on NBC's "Perfect Couples," we wondered how long longtime host, and the personification of "Attack of the Show" in our opinion, Kevin Peirera would be flying solo.Not long, in fact, but we let Bailey get a few months under her belt before we approached for an interview. Here's what Pereira had to say about his new co-host: "Candace is the sweetest thing on two heels. Her immediate dedication to the show, passion and sense of responsibility has been a blessing to the entire team." That's a ringing endorsement but we know that Pereira is nothing if not a complete gentleman so we had to see for ourselves how this newbie had adapted to one of our favorite, non-primetime shows on TV: "Attack of the Show" is where you go to get the lowdown on consumer technology, gaming, and pop-culture packaged in an incredibly impressive (and humorous) live show - yes, the show is shot live! Last year we paid a visit to the set for a live broadcast where it was amazing to see all the components come together: video clips, live interviews, live product reviews, sketches, you name it. It was intimidating to be there while just hiding behind the cameras, we couldn't imagine what it would be like to walk in front of them.
