39 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
40 Well, Schneider has been with Nickelodeon since at least 1994 (I know he made All That and Kenan and Kel), although he definitely seems to have more control on the network now than he did back then. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 11, 2010, 4:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
41 I see it: Dan Schneider really is Nick's answer to Fox's Seth MacFarlane! He has more of an advantage, though: while Seth is limited to a 1 1/2 hour block only on Sundays, Dan could sweep the entire 24-hour schedule every day. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 11, 2010, 8:33 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
42 BigAl, I think Cartoon Network currently holds that title. Nickelodeon might be pretty bad, but I'd rather watch SpongeBob and Fairly OddParents over Adventure Time and The Regular Show. As for those "tween" shows like iCarly and Victorious, however....no, thank you. (On that note, does it appear to anyone else that Dan Schneider is to Nickelodeon what Seth MacFarlane is to Fox? Think about it.) That being said, the network needs improvement. I only really watch the channel for Nick at Nite anyway. It's better than anything else on the network. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on November 10, 2010, 6:05 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
43 Nickelodeon. You'll never find a more wretched hive of garbage and unwatchable crap. I liked it when it had shows like You Can't Do That On Television (something that deserves a DVD release), Danger Mouse, Double Dare, All That (love Have A Nice Day With Leroy and Fuzz and Ask Ashley), Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life...now it's nothing but Spongebob and tween crap. It was good while it lasted...sayonara, Crap-a-load-eon. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 10, 2010, 3:31 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

45 I can't pin point it, but i think it started to decline around 2004-2005. Either all the good shows were replaced with crap, or the good shows were boning the fish themselves. ren and stimpy, invader zim, rocko, angry beavers, and more were cancelled because of stupid network decisions and over protective parents. These shows had great humor, good plots, and appealed to adults as well. it is a damn shame. pete and pete, cousin skeeter, and alex mack were also lost. They found themselves replaced by mr meaty, zoey 101 and icarly. all the shows now try too hard to be funny, rely on fart and burp jokes, morals being shoved down kid's throats, are too pc, and have stupid annoying characters. And the few good shows like Spongebob boned a long time ago. Nick's schedule has also gone to shit. they show the same 6 shows all day long now. who the hell wants to watch spongebob and Fairly oddparents 8 times a day? I sure the hell don't. No variety whatsoever. the last nick show i enjoyed was probably Avatar the last airbender, it at least tried, was funny, and didn't have farts every 5 seconds. -- Submitted By: (internet_fan) on January 24, 2010, 6:34 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
46 I have been able to determine through fairly good research (Wikipedia) that the decline actually began by the release of the Spongebob movie. After the film's release (I can't believe I'm actually calling that THING a film), more and more 90's Nicktoons died off (in fact, ALL of the 90's ones are now gone for good), Nickelodeon Studios closed, the Kids Choice awards (and Nick themselves as a whole) became more celebrity-grabbing (especially in 2008-2009), the game shows just left (well, 2 came and, to me, are the ONLY bits of good programming on the network) & let's not forget the HUGE & UNNESSECARY OVERUSE of Spongebob (who, from this comment onward I will simply refer to as "the show that must NEVER be named.") Bottom line, Spongebob killed Nickelodeon. Enough said. -- Submitted By: (Idontlikefails) on December 9, 2009, 10:13 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
47 BTF around the early-to-mid 2000's... About 2002-2006 was the slow decline. NICKELODEON- Started to decline when most of the old Nicktoon's and Live Action shows began to end, Doug, Rugrats (pre-Dil of course), Ren and Stimpy, Rocko, Hey Arnold, Invader Zim, Angry Beavers, Pete and Pete, Clarissa, Hey Dude, and so on... now I wouldn't have had a problem if these shows were replaced with equally GOOD shows, but they weren't. Instead, we got stuck with the likes of unsightly garbage like The Amanda show, All Growed Up, Butt Ugly Martians, Yakity Yak, and now more recently Mr. Meaty, The Mighty Bee, 6Teen (which is currently clogging up Cartoon Network's airspace, I belive)My Dad the Rock Star, and loads more. These shows don't have the humor or magic that the older shows had. They are just potty humor, butt jokes, repetitive jokes, loud, ear-piercing voices/screaming, and stupidity. I have enjoyed Pre-movie SpongeBob, FOP (before it got lame), Avatar, Drake and josh, Teenage Robot though. But basically this channel is nothing but Teeny-bopper teen/tween shows, about 7 other shows (sorry Nick, I remember when you showed 17 shows a day, and never showed the same show twice... Unless it was a marathon) and SpongeBob (which is a good show; But, again, who on God's green earth wants to watch this show 50 times a day? I sure don't(see above). NICK JR- I don't really have a comment, I dislike the shows that are aired on it now, but the block is for Preschoolers. NICK AT NIGHT- Boned recently. Most of these shows are good, but the block is losing it's variety, Only a handful of shows are shown now. At least tell them to cancel the god-awful "Glenn Martin, D.D.S." god that show is trashy and disgusting. NICKTOONS- I thought of this as the Nick equivelent of Boomerang. But it boned when they removed all the old Nick shows and replaced them with the crap shown on Nickelodeon now, or gave them 3 A.M. (death) slots... (Ren and Stimpy). NOGGIN/THE-N/TEENICK- This channel was great in the beginning. Showings of Pete and Pete, Hey Dude, Bill Nye, Ghostwriter... Alas, it just became Nick Jr... Jr. The N/Teenick recently spun off... The channel is good, That 70's show, FPOBA and the other shows were a nice touch, but Degrassi is overplayed (and I really never cared for the show, myself). -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on November 20, 2009, 1:18 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
48 EVERYTHING on Nickelodeon is pure garbage now. I never go to that channel anymore now that it's always airing these TEENick teeny-bopper crap. I remember when I used to go to that channel all the time, when shows like Doug, old Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold, Angry Beavers, AYAOTD, etc. were on. Those were good shows. Those made me want to watch Nickelodeon. Then they stopped showing those shows, and gradually turned away from cartoons and towards TEENick. Once iCarly and Drake and Josh started airing, I never checked out Nick again. -- Submitted By: (TheFNG) on November 18, 2009, 11:21 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote

51 Couldn't agree more, tvfan. I remember watching Nick at Nite a few nights ago, saying "What's with the logo?". Oh well, I guess Nick is dead now, along with Cartoon Network and the Disney Channel. :-( -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 6, 2009, 4:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
52 The biggest BTF moment is going to occur next month as Nick is going to change the familiar splat logo first introduced in 1984 to a generic orange retro-fonted "nickelodeon" logo. This is bogus because not only was the orange splat their offical logo, it was part of many people memories of the old days of the channel. I can remember countless commericals that had the splat in so many variation (lightbulbs, animals, blimps, hell even disco suits for dancing dogs). But i'm seriously not suprised by this move, Nickelodeon has already gone down the drain with all the crappy shows they have on now. I guess this is the final good bye to the Nickelodeon me and countless others we loved and cherished while growing up. -- Submitted By: (tvfan) on August 3, 2009, 3:41 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
53 What has happened to Nick at Nite, those old shows we originally missed by having been born too late or tucked in too early... a fascinating variety of classics that began at 8 PM and entertained us until the wee hours? Several years ago, Nick at Nite's evening kickoff was moved back to 9 PM so that the rugrats could indulge in an additional hour of "Rugrats" (or current lame-O cartoon du jour). That hour's sacrifice was bad enough, but what can be said for an entire two hours a "nite" of Bill Cosby-oriented programs? Granted, I have always been a fan of Mr. Cosby's work. However, "Cosby Show" hardly qualifies as "Classic TV". It is still rotated regularly throughout the day in syndication; where's the *novelty* in seeing this show on Nick at Nite? Legitimate "Classic TV" programs have been bumped to the late-night pasture, when most working folks like me and my husband have long before retreated to bed. The true gems are broadcast when we are either fast asleep or out there barely earning enough to support these ever-ballooning cable bills. An entire hour of "Cheers" is redundant, and the only show worth waiting up for, "All in the Family", is most likely viewed primarily by sleepy security guards or frazzled ER attendings sipping tepid coffee in the lounge between rounds. We have not watched Nick at Nite in quite some time for this reason. At least TV Land retains that long-forgotten "flavor" previously unique to Nick at Nite. If Nickelodeon does not rethink the timing and variety of its "classic" programming lineup, the station is no doubt doomed to be the exclusive domain of rugrats and their out-of-work parents. -- Submitted By: (Lori9) on June 18, 2009, 8:49 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
54 This show boned the moment that the Nicktoons aired. That was Ren and Stimpy, Doug, and Rugrats. It went downhill very fast after this. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 27, 2009, 10:14 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
55 I feel for our youth, they'll never know the wonder of GOOD kids shows... I miss the old days of nick, but hey what do you expect from a channel who has MTV as a sister, of course It would lose its way to repetitive, forgettable, faddish programming. -- Submitted By: (joeyschmoey) on May 13, 2009, 11:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
56 SVN, you helped me remember all those old Nick shows! Thank you! So many childhood memories. Don't forget "Salute Your Shorts"! I always remember Budnick's take on the theme song: "Camp Anawanna, we hold you in our heart, and when we think about you, IT MAKES ME WANNA FART!" The kids would laugh and Ug the counseler would go, "It's 'I hope we never part'! Now get it right or pay the price!" -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 13, 2009, 12:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
57 Oh boy, let's harken back to the good ol' days of "Jump the Shark" for my Nickelodeon rant: Back in the days this channel started, we watched shows like "Pinwheel", "You Can't Do That On Television", "Danger Mouse", "Rugrats", "Clarissa", "Double Dare", "OLD (and I mean OLD) All That", and "Kenan and Kel". (There are other shows, too, but these are the good ones from looking at old JTS posts) Now we got STUPID shows like "NEW All That", "Catdog", "Spongebob", "Fairly Oddparents", plus (guess what) teenage shows similar in fashion to what killed "The Disney Channel"!!!!! First it was a smart, intelligent PBS-like channel, now it's MTV JUNIOR!!!!! OLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOAIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! I can't stand it!!!!! Insert your own crazy rants on this channel here; I hate the new Nick!!!!! Urggggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on May 12, 2009, 7:19 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
58 Began Boning around 2001-ish and is slowly getting worse. They play the same shows way too much (the schedule is basically 15 hours of SpongeBob, iCarly and Fairly Oddparents... And whatever random newer show they cancel after a season and a half for no good reason). They had some good shows back in the day, Doug, Pete and Pete, Wild and Crazy Kids, Pre Games Ren and Stimpy, Rocko, Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold, etc. Even a few newer ones, Invader Zim, Pre Movie Spongebob and Pre movie FOP were good. Sadly, they started getting all this garbage, All Grown Up, Rocket Power, The X's, Mr Meaty, I Carly, Zoey 101, Drake and Josh, etc. Boring, annoying, unfunny shit. You were good while you lasted Nickeldeon.. -- Submitted By: (Ken) on May 10, 2009, 12:36 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
