"@Baltimoreian: I wish cable and satellite providers did the same with Nick. I really can't stand Nickelodeon anymore, since it wasn't as good as they used to be in the 90s and 2000s. You could even watch some programming that Nickelodeon had during the 80s, and it looks better than the 2010s in comparison. This decade is basically the worst for Nickelodeon, although I quit watching the channel because it sucks. Really boring as heck."
Nickelodeon mostly makes programming relevant to today's kids, not the same viewers it had in the 1990s. To viewers in the 80s, that was when Nick at its best; to viewers in the 90s, that's when Nick was best, etc. Viewers in Nick's core demo at the moment most likely think that Nick is at its best now.
