Nickelodeon (ended 2012)
Ohhh....the president of NICKELODEON. Not the US. Ohhhh. You make sense now. I definitely noticed a huge difference around that time. That explains it!
I'd normally agree, but the show doesn't really have to do with being famous or secret identities like Hannah Montana or WOWP. They don't sing, and they sort of have normal problems. Like, Freddie never kissing a girl is a "normal" problem. Hannah Montana having to deal with dating a movie star and Selena's character having to have a party with an Uncle who is really Shakira is a "famous problem/wizard problem" people can't relate to. I think you can definitely hate on iCarly for other reasons, but it isn't entirely a show about famous people. The time they made Miranda sing in that wedding episode did make me roll my eyes though. I like iCarly more than BTR because it's the closest to old school Nick sitcoms that we're going to get.
Their cartoons are definitely slacking. Even Spongebob sucks now. I'd say without Phineas and Ferb, Disney is slacking on their cartoons too. I just expect more from Nickelodeon since they had such great Nicktoons in the past. Now there's nothing left. Instead of relying on your "The 90s is All That" stuff, why don't you create new and original stuff that is just as good?? I heard the Penguins show is good, but they just got it off of Dreamworks. They need good Nicktoons! Oh I agree, they definitely need to cancel Fred. At least I don't see it on a lot. I would agree that they should cancel all of those shows you listed....but then the network would be non-existant. Like, aren't those ALL of the Nickelodeon shows? Haha.
Oh, and Victorious is cancelled too, so you can cross that show off your list.
SpongeBob was meant to end after the movie like the creator intended, but the newPresidentdemanded new episodes and she got new writers. That's why new SpongeBob sucks so bad and is nothing like the old one. And the only reason Disney Channel isn't experiencing massiveratingdrops like Nickelodeon is because the don't air as many reruns as Nick andthey'restarting to get animated shows back onto their schedule. Have you seen Gravity Falls? It'sliterallyone of the best animated shows to come out in 10 years!
