''This page details both the [=TeenNick=] channel and former programming block.''


'''[=TeenNick=]''' is a sister channel of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} launched in 2001, primarily aimed at teenagers. It was formerly known as The-N. The-N was originally a night-time network that shared space with Noggin (a preschool network) and aired from 6pm to 6am EST. In 2007, The-N finally split from Noggin (now known as Creator/NickJr) and in 2009, the channel was re-branded [=TeenNick=] in order to emphasize the Nickelodeon connection. Currently, there is a [[NetworkDecay shift in programming]] from dramatic series with older teens to more light-hearted shows showcasing younger kids. The network is primarily known for being the American broadcaster of ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'', as well as for off-network Nickelodeon live-action repeats, though they have recently been beefing up their original programming. It aired several Canadian shows like the afformentioned ''Degrassi'', ''Series/InstantStar'', and ''Series/TheBestYears''. It also aired a few Australian shows, like ''Series/H2OJustAddWater'' and ''Series/DanceAcademy''.

Despite the focus on teenagers, [=TeenNick=] used to be notorious for its zealous {{Media Watchdog}}s. The most infamous example of censorship was when they [[MissingEpisode completely excised two episodes]] of ''Degrassi'' revolving around [[GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion a character getting an abortion]], only showing them years later. Reruns of ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' also suffered from [[EditedForSyndication syndication cuts]], as did an entire season of ''Series/SouthOfNowhere'' due to [[ButNotTooGay its lesbian content and romantic scenes.]] This censorship has softened in recent years, as ''Degrassi'' has been shown without any editing. [[Series/AllThat Nick Cannon]] is the honorary chairman of [=TeenNick=] and apparently has some authority over programming, as he conceived and hosted the first annual [=TeenNick=] HALO Awards, an awards show awarding teens making a difference. The channel has recently launched a new block on July 25th called 'Series/The90sAreAllThat', showing [[NostalgiaFilter Nickelodeon's 90s output.]] Oh, and on a thankful note, this block instantly became [[CashCowFranchise a huge ratings success,]] [[http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/07/nicks_new_90s_nostalgia_block.html multiplying the ratings for it's time slot by 850%.]]

Also, it's "[=TeenNick=]" and [[SpellMyNameWithAnS not "Teenick"]].


The '''[=TEENick=]''' programming block was born in 2000 and aired Sunday nights from 6pm to 9pm EST. It later became the SpiritualSuccessor of the Creator/{{SNICK}} block when [=TEENick=] Saturday Night took over SNICK's timeslot in 2004. It wasn't very notable or different than SNICK, except the programming was a bit more girl-orientated with occasional promos with fashion tips and such ([=TEENick=] Saturday Night was more boy-orientated). The block was hosted by J Boogie and lasted until 2009, when Nickelodeon phased out all their programming blocks and later used the name to re-brand The-N, albeit with a different spelling.
