TeenNick (stylized as teennick) is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Nickelodeon Group, a unit of the ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks division of ViacomCBS.
Why It Rocked
Aimed at ages 13-17, it was formed from the merger of two former programming blocks for teenagers: TEENick on Nickelodeon and The N on Noggin.
The channel features a mix of original programming, Nickelodeon-produced series (Drake & Josh, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, Zoey 101, iCarly, Big Time Rush and Victorious), and acquired programs (Degrassi: The Next Generation) geared towards pre-teens and teenagers.
It launched the programming block called NickRewind, which airs on nighttime were it aired some classic Nickelodeon shows for both Nicktoons and live-action shows from mid-late 1980s to the early-mid 2000s as well as some films which was released by its parent company, Paramount Pictures. It was formerly known as The '90s Are All That, The Splat and NickSplat.
This channel even has original programming like The Nightlife, Gigantic and TeenNick Top 10 as well as some programs that premieres from Nickelodeon such as House of Anubis, Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures, Star Falls and Hunter Street.
Nick Cannon was named the Chairman of the network and the development and creative consultant, until 2020. He was also hosts the network's TeenNick HALO Awards and the music video countdown show, TeenNick Top 10.
The commercials, promos and bumpers were fun to watch. The website for games and videos were also good as well.
Not only the shows was rated TV-Y7, it was also rated TV-G, TV-PG and TV-14 for some shows.
Despite re-branding the channel and the logo in 2009, it was still one of Nickelodeon's finest networks to aired on TV along with Nick Jr. and Nicktoons.
The Only Bad Quality
Not all the shows were great on the channel, including most Nickcoms after 2011.
