Mar 11, 2011  •  Post A Comment

TeenNick will revive a slate of older Nickelodeon favorites for a new retro lineup, Entertainment Weekly reports. Shows to be featured include “All That,” “Clarissa Explains It All,” “Rugrats” and “The Amanda Show.”

The shows will be aired in a programming block from midnight-2 a.m., under the banner The ’90s Are All That. Other shows to be featured are “Kenan & Kel” and “Pete & Pete.”

“The tween cabler came up with the idea after seeing the huge interest in early Nickelodeon programming on social media sites,” EW reported. “There are several Facebook pages–followed by millions of fans–that are devoted to Nickelodeon shows from the ’90s.”

Said Keith Dawkins, TeenNick’s senior VP and general manager: “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.”

TeenNick may expand the programming to include other shows at a later time.
