2 It's strange, the station never honors their old shows. Shows I grew up with. Remember the beginnings of the network? They use to air shows that were from other countries. Of course, no one at that time knew that, this was the early to mid-80s. But those where the shows that where the building block of the networks. Shows on Nick wouldn't be around today if it wasn't for, Pin Wheels, You can't do that on Television, Danger Mouse, Today's Special, Banana Man, Mysterious Cities of Gold and Count Duckula. But Nick tries to ignore them like they never existed. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on February 16, 2015, 5:20 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Nickelodeon was bad enough with all of those ripoffs of the earliest cartoons (Rugrats: Ah! Real Monsters and Rocket Power, Ren and Stimpy: Angry Beavers and Catdog and Doug: Hey Arnold!), but once Spongebob came aboard, things only got worse. How many times a day do they play Spongebob? Just when you thought the media ripped him to pieces by labelling him gay,the creator releases the film. Spongebob has the most annoying voice in the world and yet almost everyone seems to love him. I don't understand. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on October 15, 2014, 11:41 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 For me the magic was lost in the early 2000's when Angry Beavers, Invader Zim, Rugrats (though it did get unbearable later on) Rocko's Modern Life and all those shows got kicked to the curb. As some people pointed out, they were replaced with nasty, predictable shows and ripoffs (Yes, Rocket Power, Catdog, why do people miss that crappy shows?) I felt like they could've done better and made more quality shows like Ned's Declassified and Avatar, The last Airbender, but resorted to cartoons about people lighting their farts on fire with force-fed "morals" shoved in at the end. (Didn't they learn from horrible shows like Mr. Meaty?) But what really hurt this channel is that they show the same 4 shows all day long. I watched while babysitting, and they only show SpongeBob, Fairly Oddparents (both shows seem to have gotten pretty horrible, but they must still sell toys, so they remain on the network to be milked) and a few teenybopper shows. I remember back when they didn't show the same show twice a day, and they aired like 14 different shows. -- Submitted By: (Midnight) on October 10, 2014, 9:13 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Nickelodeon boned the fish due to all of those darn Nicktoons that aired in the mid nineties. Literally, the network was flooded by Ren and Stimpy ripoffs. I love Ren and Stimpy as much as the next guy, but we did not need Catdog. Its like, for every one of the first three Nicktoons, there was a rip-off. You name it and they had it. Doug? Hey Arnold. Rugrats? Real Monsters. Ren and Stimpy? Rockos Modern Life and Catdog. I cannot believe children of the nineties are nostalgic for that junk. Shortly after all of those Nicktoons aired, Nickelodeon became the Nicktoon channel. Gone was shows like Are You Afraid of the Dark and even All That. Then, Nickelodeon mutated into the Spongebob network and preteen channel. Why do the people behind Nickelodeon cannot balance things out. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:04 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Nick definitely jumped the shark when the old "FACE" is replaced with an updated version of "FACE" as a Hanna-Barbera like character with an African-American voice. The worst part is he shows up at of nowhere with all of the Nick Jr's shows split-screened. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:08 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Instead of Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold, the Angry Beavers, Doug, and other shows we're stuck with Avatar, Unfabulous, Zoey 101, Romeo! Chalkzone, Teenage Robot, and Danny Phantom. GIMME A BREAK! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:07 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Nick jumped when the Jimmy Neutron ads came out. I'm sick and tired of waiting for a show to come on and this 5-10 minute Jimmy Neutron thing comes on between commercials. The worst part is when Jimmy and his "dog" pops out from the logo in the bottom corner of the screen in the middle of the show, and they're doing something to mess up the show taking up half of the screen. The worst one was during an episode of "Hey Arnold!", Jimmy and his "dog" came out onto the screen. Jimmy had one of his inventions. He rewinded about 10 minutes of the show (in 3 seconds). Then he fast forwarded it to where it was, and he did that 3 or 4 times. He rewinded it one more time, giggled, and ran out. He didn't even fast forward it back! So he wastes 30 seconds, and then I have to watch 2 minutes of what I already saw. Plus taking up half the screen, with him and his damn dog making noise doing something, drowning out the sound of the show I am trying to watch! They should just keep that little bastard out of the shows that he doesn't belong be in! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:05 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Did Nick just want to imitate its arch rival, The Disney Channel? Why would it sabotage itself like that??? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Nick Cannon. He is the ONE that made Nickelodeon jumped the shark for sure. He is nothing but a Kel Mitchell wannabe. I hated him the FIRST time he joined the cast of All That. He is TOTALLY not funny. He takes over everything including the network itself. He turned Snick into Snick House (which is PURE GARBAGE) and that LAME TEENick Block. Even worst, He has his OWN show which is nothing but GARBAGE. As far as I'm concerned he is definely the one that made the #1 Cool Network into an MTV Wannabe fluff. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 In Canada, YTV shows all the Nick shows and guess what? It's nearly all SpongeBob, all the time. I've seen previews of that awful "Mork" clone, and thought it was gross when he barfed up a bowl of cereal and milk. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 12, 2013, 12:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

13 Nick seems to be in a downward spiral ratings wise, and it's no wonder. Their new live action shows now consist of iCarly spinoffs (Sam and Cat, Gibby, Wendell and Vinnie) and a horrible ripoff of "Mork and Mindy" starring that annoying Fred guy. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on March 18, 2013, 8:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 It's quickly becoming 50% Spongebob and 40% Kung Fu Panda. It's possible to see the same exact episode of either show three times in one week. If it's a premiere episode, ten times in one week. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2011, 2:42 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 @John63btf. It used to be like that with Rugrats. Both (Rugrats and Spongebob) have gotten tired as a result. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on November 23, 2011, 1:29 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

17 It took a while for Nickelodeon to bone the fish, but the Schneider overload did it for me. Nickelodeon quality has declined since 1999. -- Submitted By: (Northeastern292) on August 14, 2011, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Well for all you 90s nostalgic fans, I have some good news. TeenNick is dedicating 2 hours to 90s Nickelodeon shows. At the current moment they are only showing the programs that have been most requested: All That, Kenan and Kel, Clarissa Explains It All, and Doug. But I spoke with a guy on Twitter who is close to Nickelodeon management that says later in the year, they are going to start up a fan voting platform via social networks for people requesting for shows like Hey Dude, Are You Afraid Of The Dark, Double Dare, Rugrats, Kablam, and any other 90's program people want to request. What makes it even better is that the one in charge of this is an old 90's Nickelodeon icon we come to grow up with. Let's just hope that they start this up soon before people start to lose interest. -- Submitted By: (tvfan) on July 27, 2011, 5:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

20 Nick's "network decay" if you want to call it that really started around the time that "Rugrats" was "uncancelled" around 1997 and the first movie came out (the first ever non-Disney animated movie to make over $100 million at the box office). This led to "Rugrats" being run to death every single day. Meanwhile, just about every other Nicktoon had to be Klasky Csupo product just like "Rugrats". "Rugrats" was pretty much the "SpongeBob" of the late 1990s-early 2000s in terms of how over-reliant Nick became of it. The homogonizing of Nick's programming is what also killed it. So instead of having a variety of programming like in the past (e.g. game shows, horror shows like "Are You Afraid of the Dark", sci-fi shows like "The Secret World of Alex Mack", "Space Cases" and "The Tomorrow People", and quirky, slice of life sitcoms like "The Adventures of Pete and Pete", sketch comedy/variety shows like "All That" and "You Can't Do That on Television"), we get cookie-cutter, "wishful fulfillment" tweencoms which seem to be no different than the kind that you can find on Disney Channel these days. I honestly believe that Nick has in recent years, become way too concerned with what Disney has been doing. The demise of SNICK in 2004 in favor of second day of TEENick was really the official beginning of the end of the "golden age" (or whatever remnants were left of it) from the '90s. I mean, Nick can air "iCarly" on Saturdays and it wouldn't make much of a difference as any other day. In other words, Nick has grown way, way too complacent with their scheduling/programming choices (to the point in which it has become tiresome). They've been relying too much on outside factors (like Disney or Saban with the Power Rangers, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dreamworks, etc.) for inspiration or ideas as of late instead of coming up with their own stuff. They also treat a selected few of programs and their stars (e.g. Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice most recently) most importantly (just like Disney) as a cash cow or potential cash cow to milk and exploit to the extreme. If a show like "The Troop" sticks out like a sore thumb in regards to what kind of genre it fits into, then it doesn't get as much publicity.promotion. -- Submitted By: (TMC1982) on November 30, 2010, 5:15 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
