* Looking at the TV guide almost every day their schedule is literally just ''Spongebob'' and ''[=FOP=]'' over and over until the very evening, where they then air one or two episodes of either ''WesternAnimation/DrakeAndJosh'' or ''SamAndCat'' than switch onto ''Nick-at-Nite''. They rarely air their new cartoons like ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' or ''TuffPuppy''. Maybe if they aired some different cartoons for once, even reruns, and didn't cancel their good ones (I'm looking at you ''MakingFiends'' and ''TheMightyB'') they wouldn't be in a rut. They have a long line of cartoons they could air but they shove everything on Nick Toons Network.

** TeenNick's ratings for that timeslot have been comparatively through the roof since the block started, so I don't think it's a problem for that many people, especially considering that most of them are college-age and are likely to be up around then anyway. I personally think it's a great way to please the nostalgiacs without keeping the network's "normal" line-up from stagnating.

*** On a related note, why is it the 90s cartoons are airing late at night on TeenNick, when they should be airing on NicktoonsNetwork, a channel that was originally created for them, but eventually became almost nothing but their own original programming and nicktoons that are still airing on the main network(i.e Penguins of Madagascar, Planet Sheen,etc.).

* How is ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' gonna die when they don't air any new cartoons? ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' got dethroned due to ''Spongebob'' so it makes sense that when another big cartoon comes along and gets more popular than ''Spongebob'' they'll slowly can it.. But Nickelodeon literally doesn't air enough new cartoons, and when they do they barely show them.

** Because the NightmareFace in the middle of the screen looks like somebody "pinched" the eyeballs and mouth off of somebody and stuck it into the middle of the screen.

** Maybe it's because although they're cartoon characters, they aren't as funny looking or ''[[RealIsBrown colorful]]'' as the likes of [[SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]] or [[TheFairlyOddParents Timmy]].
