TeenNick 90’s Revival a Major Hit
How many of you stayed up to watch the premiere of “The 90’s Are All That?” In case you aren’t in the know, Nick Cannon and the folks at TeenNick have put together a two hour block of 1990’s Nickelodeon television shows to air every weeknight at midnight. Shows included are Doug, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, Clarissa Explains it All, Double Dare, The Ren & Stimpy Show and Salute Your Shorts.
Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick had this to say after announcing the rebroadcasting of the fan favorites:
“At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11. 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.”
Since premiering last night, it has remained a trending topic on Facebook and Twitter. As of this morning, Doug is the top trending topic on Google and Kenan & Kel are the top trending topic on Twitter.
