Classic Nick block coming to TeenNick

If you’re a twentysomething who’s been jonesing for repeats of All That and Clarissa Explains it All, then this news is for you: EW has learned exclusively that starting this fall, TeenNick will dust off old faves like Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Pete & Pete, The Amanda Bynes Show, All That and Clarissa and air them in a new midnight-to-2 a.m. programming block dubbed (appropriately enough) The ’90s Are All That. The tween cabler came up with the idea after seeing the huge interest in early Nickelodeon programming on social media sites. There are several Facebook pages — followed by millions of fans — that are devoted to Nickelodeon shows from the ’90s.

“At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11,” Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick, tells EW. “It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back.”

Color me excited. It'll be great to see some classics back on TV, though I'm not a big fan of the timeslots. :D

Cool, but I understand why they put it in a watershed timeslot and it's because it's not really relevant to the current stuff out there. They do the same thing to Gullah Gullah Island and some other show on Noggin.

I wish that the game shows and some other shows would be included as well.

Also, TBK, just make sure that your VCR can be set to the exact channel number that TeenNick is in your area. If it isnt set to the correct number, your efforts will be for naught.

Not trying to be a wet blanket here or anything, but before anyone calls it, this isn't going to be a first step to anything more. Why after midnight? Because they think that their target audience won't like old programs on during the day and they'll get less viewership and profits (It's not like I don't think otherwise, but I'm not the decision-maker here, am I?).

Another example of a corporation claiming they "care" that everyone can see right through.
