A TV channel that's mainly aimed towards children and teens that launched in 1979. It has different programming blocks, such as Nick Jr., Nick at Nite and Snick/TEENick.

I've seen other definitions of Nickelodeon on here, but all people seem to do is bash it and say stuff like "Nickeldeon sucks now!". Well, I'm not going to bash it here. It just seems that so many people jump on the "Nickelodeon sucks now!" bandwagon. I had no idea that the newer Nickelodeon was so hated until I started looking up Nickelodeon on the Internet. I mean, while I agree that the older Nickelodeon is better overall, there's still some good shows on there, such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Fairly OddParents and even Catscratch!

Seriously, you guys probably just bash the newer Nickelodeon because you just grew up and grew out of Nickelodeon. It's really stupid how you guys say stuff like "Only stupid kids watch Nickelodeon now."! The kids who are growing with Nickelodeon now will probably say the same thing about how Nickelodeon sucks now when they get older.

Now, I know how some of you guys grew up with shows like Kenan and Kel, Doug, Salute Your Shorts, Rocko's Modern Life, All That, Hey Arnold and Clarissa Explains It All. Take a show like Kenan and Kel or Rocko's Modern Life, for example. If those two shows wouldn't premiere until this year, 2008, I can bet that most of you guys would probably be bashing them. And if shows like Catscratch, Zoey 101, The Mighty B and even The Naked Brothers Band and Mr. Meaty would premiere in 1995 or something, I can bet they would be recieving much more praise now! So, please, think about that before you say stupid things like "Today's Nickelodeon are making kids stupid" or "I can't let my kids watch the crap they put on Nickelodeon today".

Personally, I'm 21 years old and while I don't watch Nickelodeon nearly as much as I used to when I was younger, I still like a few shows that's on there now, like SpongeBob SquarePants, Fairly OddParents and Catscratch, as I mentioned earlier.
Some random person who's in their late teens or 20's: I can't let my kids watch the crap they put out on Nickelodeon now!

Me: Why not? They can watch it if they like it. You probably just grew out of Nickelodeon.

Used to be a classic favorite by all, it canceled all of it's good shows such as Welcome Freshmen, Salute Your Shorts, Rocko, Ren & Stimpy, and Nick Arcade. They started to aim towrds the sterotypical children that were spawning from somewhere. They began covering the new "pop" (aka. crap, homo-gays, %*&*) groups that were spawning from the same place as the sterotypical children. They struck back with Invader Zim, but was canceled because the type of humor flew right over the little kids heads. It now hold the personal record by about every person in America above the age of 13 as the worst television station and ahould be plagued with head cancer.
Nickelodeon REALLY sucks now.

A channel that has sold out to the max. Used to have great shows like salute your shorts, pete and pete, and doug. Now they have these stupid mindless cartoons that would put a kid with adhd to sleep.
6 year old kid: Nickelodeon is my favorite channel!

Me: My young friend, you shall never know.

A now horrible kids channel. It started off pretty good with Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's modern Life (even Angry beavers wasn't all shit) but promptly canceled all their good shows and started to play towards f*cking 6-year olds. Then came Spongebob and it almost completely died. It made a brief (but amazing) comeback with Invader Zim, but, of course, they cancelled it, leading to its utter doom. Now, unless they bring some good shows into their pathetic schedule, it wil soon be cancelled as well.
'Nuff said.

An Uber-retarded network that only exists to cancell its last few entertaining shows, and blatatntly mock animation.
Nick Executive:This shows ratings are off the chart, cancel it immediantly.

A television network station that once had spark and fun. Used to be made up of shows such as Rocko, Hey Arnold, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Are You Afraid of the Dark, and Clarissa Explains It All, just to name a few. This network has downgraded itself with "new and improved" clean innuendo shows such as Spongebob Squarepants and Fairly Oddparents. Tries to redeem itself with "TeeNick" network, but has not been successful. On the brink of being off the expanded cable network.
Nickelodeon is on the brink of extinction.

A great Kid's TV Channel until the mid-90's when it began to suck. It had supa-fly shows such as Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures Of Pete and Pete, Doug, Salute Your Shorts, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, Ahh! Real Monsters, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Figure it Out and etc. Then they started to slowly decline as they kept replacing the cast of All That, made a new version of Double Dare called Double Dare 2000. Their good cartoons were taken off the air and their ok cartoons such as Rugrats, got worse and worse. They occasionly had a good show like Invader Zim but was cancelled probably cuz faux-punks who shop at Hot Topic started wearing Gir and Zim pins and T-shirts. Now they just suck and show crappy shows such as ChalkZone, Fairly Oddparents, Zoey 101, and Unfabulous.
Man, i miss Old School Nick.
