I guess a monthly marathon is their idea of shaking things up now. And since Doug has no chance of a reboot unless Jim Jinkins or Nick buys the rights back from Disney, don't speculate a comeback.
He meant it's a week long marathon

I did say that, but I think he was saying that they do one every month.
I thought when he said monthly marathon, I thought he was referring (for example Doug) doing marathon for four weeks. But I didn't know what he meant til you clarified it, doing marathon for once every month. Anyways sorry about it

Leading up to the premiere of the new Double Dare, NickSplat will air a classic episode each night from June 18-24 at 11 P.M.. There will be 2 episodes of the original, 2 Family Double Dare episodes, and 3 Double Dare 2000 episodes.

A little more than one episode a night would be nice, but at least it's something and finally a show that isn't on regularly again.

2000 wasn't terrible, but the original and Family versions hosted by Marc Summers are the best.

I don't know if I ever watched them. Maybe the few times I was over a friend's house who had the higher cable tiers and saw it on Nick GaS (I miss when Nick did tons of gameshows...) but I only remember watching DD2K myself when it was new.

It seems that 4 out of 7 of Double Dare episodes scheduled to air Jun 18-24 have already aired before on TeenNick's 90s block.

5 episodes of Double Dare 2000 were produced in HD as a special partnership with Sony.

Since April 30, @NickSplat has aired the first 26 episodes of #Doug only. Every week since, including this past week where they aired 49 hours of just Doug, it has only been episodes 1 to 26. For all of June, only the first 26 episodes are scheduled. That's weird, I wonder why...

NickSplat has significantly cut down their programming variances. Unless it's a special event they only end up showing Hey Arnold, Rugrats, and Doug.

Rocko, Ahh Real Monsters, Rocket Power, All That, Kenan & Kel, Catdog, Angry Beavers, etc are never shown anymore.

I suppose that HA, Rugrats, and Doug are by far the most popular of them.

I really hope the new show can live up to the old, its such a simple concept I hope they get it right.

A Nick schedule from summer 1994. :)


I just barely remember this. I definitely recall GUTS and LOTHT on Saturday morning, especially when I remembered asking my mom to tape Legends for me as I went outside to play with friends. Looney Tunes was on at that 1pm Saturday hour for the longest I remember - including 9am Sundays. Still haven't seen numerous pre-48s since then.

24 different series listed there with only three one-hour spots. Mostly original series as well. Summer 1994, so Rocko was already on, but probably just Sundays. Real Monsters would debut a few months later.

Microsoft just bought Activision/Blizzard for $68 billion. And people thought the Bethesda deal was huge? Mind. Blown.
I wonder what if Viacom responsed to turner buying Hanna barbera by buying Fred wolf films (meant they would own the 1987 tmnt cartoon) in 1992 or 1993 and they later buy the tmnt ip as well as mirage studios in in the mid-late 90s or early-mid 2000s instead of 2009

What if Viacom bought Capital Cities/ABC instead of Disney in 1996?

ABC did have a good relationship with Paramount Television after all.
When it comes to Nickelodeon, nothing is sacred. Not even a creator's wishes. Hillenburg did not want to promote fast food and this is what Nick does...
