Cable network TeenNick is dedicating a programming block to an era that it considers something of a golden age of television — at least to its targeted demographic of 18- to-34-year-olds, reports The New York Times‘ Brian Stelter.
The era is the 1990s. The network says the block, which will air from midnight to 4 a.m. under the title "The ’90s Are All That," is the result of demands of former viewers who signed onto Facebook fan groups dedicated to the various programs.
The title refers to Nickelodeon’s popular sketch comedy show "All That," which ran from 1994 to 2005, and which will be featured in the block.
Other shows include "Clarissa Explains It All," which aired from 1991 to 1994; "Kenan & Kel" (1996 to 2001); and the animated program "Doug" (1991-1994).
“It’s an absolute compliment that people want to see that era again," said Kenan Thompson, a star of "All That" and "Kenan & Kel" and now a cast member of NBC’s "Saturday Night Live."
