nickelodeon was once a good network from late 80s to early 90s with programs like you can't say that on telivison, welcome freshman, round house, are you afraid of the dark?, pete and pete, salute your shorts, and hey dude.

These shows were canceled and were replaced by copy-cat versions of some shows (roundhouse became all that)and all around started to suck...now most of the current shows are plotless, and shitty
Nickelodeon used to be awsome, and now it sucks

A cable channel started by Warner Cable (the same company that invented MTV) in 1977 as "Pinwheel". The channel changed names to "Nickelodeon" in 1979 with unforgettable shows like "You Can't Do That On Television" which originated Nickelodeon's "sliming" trademark.

Network that was fan-freakin-tastic until around 1992/93 when the last of the good shows started to go. Tuned in once around 99 and the format sucked. MTVJr. I believe it's become now. What a f*cking waste of what was such a promising channel.
I turned on Nickelodeon the other day hoping to catch an episode of Salute Your Shorts, but all I got was this lousy Romeo.

Used to be the most wonderful channel ever. It aired great shows like Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, My Brother and Me, Weinerville, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Clarissa Explains it All, and Are you Afraid of the Dark. Then one day some bonehead decided to cancel all those shows to make room for a whole bunch of GARBAGE new shows. Those shows include Unfabulous, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Avatar, Zoey 101, The X's, Mr. Meaty, Romeo, and other shows that are a complete waste of time. If Nick was smart, they'd cancel all those new shows and return to it's originality and quality programming.
Little Kids: Come on! Romeo is on! That show is SOOOO cool!
Older Kids: If you watch that pathetic excuse for a show, then you're an idiot! If you're watching anything, it's our tapes of Old Nickelodeon!
Little Kids: (after they've seen the REAL Nick) Boy, I'm not watching those stupid new shows anymore! What was I THINKING?

Was One of the Best Channels of all time During the 90's for all little kids, teens, Young Adults and Some Adults to all enjoy. Now it's just a Pile of S*it and not worth to watch anymore. Great Shows of the 90's in this channel for example: Rocko's Modern Life, Are you Afraid of the Dark?, Doug, The Original "All That", Kenan & Kel and The ORIGINAL Rugrats. Now they have "TeeNick" like Zoey 101. Other Retarded things like: The NEW All That, and The NEW Rugrats "All Grown-Up", which none of these "Shows" are really original and Nick' has lost its "Touch" and "Spirit" of making cartoons and Shows.
Annoying Little 10-year-old Girl: OMG!!! I want to be just like Jamie Spears!!! I love Zoey 101!!! TeeNick rules!!! and I LOVE Nickelodeon!!!

ME: " You Really Don't know the Meaning of NICKELODEON!!!So Shut the F*ck up and Read a book or Something!!!"

Annoying Little 10-year-old Girl: *Cries*

An old form of movie theater. It cost a nickel to get in.
I watched some crappy movies at the nickelodeon.

a once kick-ass channel but now a peice of shit for mindless 10 yr. olds. They took away all the awesome shows: Ren and Stimpy (sp?), Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Salute Your Shorts, Doug, the original All That, Rugrats (before 97'), etc. And replaced it with a bunch of retarded crap: The Fairly Oddparents, Spongebob Squarepants, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Zoey 101, etc. Hell, they even tried to make their own anime (Avatar: the Last Airbender and Martian Mystery) which suxxors. Leave the anime to the Japanese.
Nickelodeon used to rock with the awesome shows...now it suxxors.
