Upfront 2011: The 90's are All That (THERE IS A GOD!!!)

It already is starting on a low note kind of, Clarissa is starting at a random season 2 episode instead of season 1 (although that\'s most likely because that was the beginning of the two break era, while season 1 was when Nickelodeon only had one break during a show). All That is also starting with the season 2 premiere. Kenan and Kel just had a run on TeenNick about 2 years ago. Thankfully Doug is one of the few Nicktoons that hasn\'t had recent rotation on Nicktoons (most likely because they\'re still bitter about Brand Spanking New Doug). Hopefully the block doesn\'t end up being full of shows that still air on Nicktoons, heck CatDog, Rocko, Rugrats and Ren and Stimpy air in the same timeslot on a block that their programming department identifies as "retro" on the generic grids, lol.


As for H2O, I have no idea what is up with that show, Nickelodeon stopped halfway into season 2, yet the promo TeenNick airs features footage from the season finale, the press contact is clueless on why too. I gave up on them ages ago and watched the rest of the show on Netflix where it is true widescreen not that non-centered letterboxing Nickelodeon was doing with it and Zoey 101 at the time so they could squeeze in more banners below the show, lol.

KyL416

The schedule remains the same throughout August, so much for any rotation anytime soon, lol

Heckles101

Maybe they want to run through every episode of a show once and then rotate in another show? That way would make the most sense to do it.

KyL416

Too bad the odds are they\'re going to listen to the people who don\'t bother to check their EPGs to see that Rugrats has been airing nonstop on Nicktoons, or first started watching The N/TeenNick within the past 5 years or so.

I want some stuff that never aired on The N, Nick GAS or Nicktoons. Like Weinerville, Welcome Freshmen and Roundhouse. Stuff that actually hasn\'t AIRED since the 90s.

The first two weeks of September for Nicktoons is out, the late night retro block is gone, giving the people who never bothered to check their EPG for the past 10 years even more of a reason to vote for Rocko, Rugrats, Catdog and Ren and Stimpy, lol.

And it begins:

TeenNick Fuels Fan Frenzy for "The \'90s Are All That" with Addition of Hey Arnold! and Rocko\'s Modern Life
Two More Classic Nick Hits Join Two-Hour Weeknight Block Beginning Sept. 5


NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TeenNick stokes fan demand for more \'90s shows with the addition of two new series to the network\'s buzzworthy "The \'90s Are All That" two-hour programming block.  The new lineup of iconic Nickelodeon \'90s shows kicks off Monday, Sept. 5, with back-to back episodes of the popular animated series Rocko\'s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! at 12 a.m. and 1 a.m., respectively (all times ET).  Added by viewers\' request, Rocko and Hey Arnold! will regularly join All That and Kenan & Kel starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, in the block\'s 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. timeslots.  The block also features deeply integrated, fan-driven social media components on Facebook (//www.facebook.com/90sAreAllThat) and at //www.90sAreAllThat.com.  "The \'90s Are All That" airs Monday-Friday 12-2 a.m. with replays 2-4 a.m. on TeenNick.

Rocko\'s Modern Life, an animated series that offers a satirical view on everyday living for an Australian-born wallaby named Rocko, originally ran for 11 years on Nickelodeon.  It is further distinguished as the show where future SpongeBob SquarePants creator Stephen Hillenburg first met voice actor Tom Kenny (voice of Heffer), who would later become the inspiration for SpongeBob and create the character\'s inimitable voice.  With its off-kilter humor and a theme song performed by the B52\'s, the series follows Rocko who explores his new life in the city of O-Town and his friendships with a gluttonous steer Heffer (Kenny); a neurotic turtle Filburt (Mr. Lawrence, voice of Plankton on SpongeBob SquarePants); and Rocko\'s faithful dog, Spunky.

One of the cornerstone animated series in Nickelodeon\'s successful launch into prime-time in 1996, Hey Arnold! focuses on the daily life of Arnold--a fourth-grader with a wild imagination, street smarts and a head shaped like a football.  Created by Craig Bartlett, who came to Nickelodeon as a story editor for the network\'s hit animated series Rugrats, and later as a director for The Ren & Stimpy Show , Hey Arnold! is set in a world of subways and sandlot baseball, of bus stops and rooftops and presents a fresh look at life in the big city as seen from a kids\' point of view.  Arnold has been an important character in the Nickelodeon family and is part of the Nickelodeon legacy of popular, original animation.

Nickelodeon has ranked as the top-rated basic cable network with kids and total viewers for the last 16 years—since 1995, the longest run of its kind.  The 1990s represent Nickelodeon\'s first major expansion into original programming and content spanning multiple genres—animation, live-action, preschool, game shows, awards shows, feature films, news and pro-social campaigns—across both television and the internet.  The \'90s also saw the opening of Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Fla., where the network\'s sitcoms and game shows were made before moving to Los Angeles; and the Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, Calif., where today more than 450 episodes of new animation are being produced, the largest amount in the network\'s history.

With Nickelodeon\'s first foray into original programming in 1991 -- the animated hit series Ren & Stimpy, Doug and Rugrats--the network launched a new television era of original programming for kids, as well as creating a pipeline of groundbreaking animation that continues through today.  Nick\'s innovations in the world of live-action have also yielded a score of defining hits, ranging from the 1990s\' All That and Clarissa Explains It All, to today\'s iCarly, Victorious and Big Time Rush.  Nickelodeon\'s stars from the \'90s to now have also gone on to have major entertainment careers, with a roll call of names including Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, Mike O\'Malley, Miranda Cosgrove, Victoria Justice, Drake Bell, Josh Peck and the members of Big Time Rush, among many others.

This sounds amazing! I haven\'t seen any of these shows in a while. I only have basic cable and I am looking into dish tv because I don\'t get Teennick. Does anyone have any recommendations for a network to sign up for?

KyL416

Get DirecTV, which has TeenNick in the base Choice package. Dish Network only has it in one of their higher packages.

KixMcGiggles

Sweet! Thanks! I\'ll definitely take a look at that.

KyL416

Clarissa and Doug get the 1am hour back starting next week.

KyL416

So much for Clarissa\'s return. It appears 1am is going to be a two week rotation:

Week of 10/3 and 10/10: Hey Dude
Week of 10/17 and 10/24: The Amanda Show
Week of 10/31: Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Doug keeps 1:30am

Hey Dude starts with the 1st episode, so it\'s 1989 is All That ;)

(Still no sign of a Degrassi marathon that indicates a return)

BonesIsHere

There\'s apparently one Degrassi episode in October (tied in with Halloween, but not a Halloween episode, apparently) and then they\'ll return after the new year. Filming got pushed back a few months because they were filming that new Epitome show with Cassie Steele & company.

I\'ve never seen Are You Afraid of the Dark?, so I\'m looking forward to that.
