Should TeenNick be a 24/7 channel

I honestly think the channel should just be rebranded as NickSplat or Nick Rewind. They could keep running past Nickelodeon shows such as Drake and Josh, iCarly, and Zoey 101 as well as older Nicktoons.

IMO, Nicktoons and TeenNick should just merge into "NickTOO" since they air programming Nick is/supposed to be airing. And have NickSplat be a channel that airs programming prior to 2005.

I personally think that Nick Splat should get its own channel. There's too many older Nickelodeon shows that haven't shown up in the rotation for awhile due to the block getting shorter and they keep airing the same shows over and over again instead of rotating between different shows. I understand that the shows they are showing have the highest ratings and the block wants to milk it for all its worth, but that means some older shows will be forgotten and Nick Splat having its own channel will allow many shows to get in on the spotlight.

Thanks for watching “Jake glides down the whivers”
Probably not, considering they would most likely spam the same shows more. Plus, they were 24/7 from 2008-2011.
 
I'm honestly not sure about TeenNick or NickSplat getting their own network. The main reason (and I know this is an odd reason) but it's Nick GAS. The channel that played all the Nick Game Shows. However, as the years went on, many of the shows were taken off and in the last few years of the channel, the channel was mostly built on Legends of the Hidden Temple, Double Dare 2000, and Figure it Out, with some airings of Nickelodeon GUTS and Get the Picture sprinkled in and 2 airings of Nick Arcade at 4 in the morning. There's a reason the channel went defunct on December 31, 2007 and was replaced with TeenNick

I think the same thing is happening with Nick Splat. They are airing the same shows like Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Doug and Kenan and Kel over and over again, even though when they first started out, they were airing different kinds of shows. If Nick Splat keeps on airing the same shows again and won't show any variety in their schedule, then they will go defunct just like Nick GAS.

I agree. They didn't even really air much Halloween content this year. I'm honestly pretty amazed NickSplat has been going on for 6 years as the block used to be The 90s Are All That

I guess Nick Splat is still making money off of the shows they are constantly airing and with the case of Nick GAS, the shows broadcasted on those were probably not having high ratings.

Yeah. I'm guessing that's why NickSplat is still on. I do like that they're playing Rocko currently since there's an upcoming movie of that show

The last time TeenNick aired 24 hours was on October 4, 2015, (aka. The last day of "The 90's Are All That"). I say that because TeenNick was pretty much in control of the block from 2011-15, "The 90's" block was just a small name TeenNick used for the shows, but overall it was TeenNick.

With, The Splat, it seemed more like TeenNick had no control over it, since there were no TeenNick promos during the block and the content or commericials were similar to the one you'd see on Adult Swim or Nick at Nite.

Even today, NickSplat is treated as a seperate entity from TeenNick, so technically speaking you could say TeenNick only runs for 17 hours a day.

But in general, no, TeenNick shouldn't become a 24 hour network. Its lineup isn't really "teen focused" like it used to be. It just airs the sitcoms that Nickelodeon should be airing, along with reruns of old Dan Schneider shows. TeenNick should just stay the way it is, but I do prefer that the 10PM hour go back to NickSplat, I don't understand why TeenNick took it back in the first place.

Yeah, it's a good thing they are showing Rocko in preparing for the movie. I wonder if NickSplat will give the same treatment to Invader Zim or any other Nicktoon?

I love how she shows a fangirl side here.

Just checked True and The Rainbow Kingdom on Discovery Family... nope! No Netflix logo.
John Carpenter's Halloween debuted 42 years ago today.
Remember when I said The Dog and Pony Show should come to Qubo? Well, it's probably not happening. Since Discovery is a co producer it will probably end up on Discovery Family and Discovery Famiila.
