[=TeenNick=] is a sister channel of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} launched April 1, 2002. The channel is primarily aimed towards "tweens" and teenagers.

[=TeenNick=] started out as a [[UsefulNotes/BlockProgramming programming block]] in 2000 (then spelled [=TEENick=]) 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 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 [=TEENick=] name to re-brand The-N, albeit with a different spelling.

Before it was [=TeenNick=], the channel was known as ''The-N'', a night time network (airing 6 PM to 6 AM EST) that shared space with Noggin (now known as Creator/NickJr). In 2007, The-N split from Noggin and in 2009, the channel was re-branded [=TeenNick=] in order to emphasize the Nickelodeon connection. The network was primarily known for being the American broadcaster of ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration,'' as well as for off network Nickelodeon live action repeats and original programming such as ''Series/SouthOfNowhere''. It aired several Canadian shows like the aforementioned ''Degrassi,'' ''Series/RadioFreeRoscoe,'' ''Series/InstantStar,'' and ''Series/TheBestYears.'' It also aired a few Australian shows, like ''Series/H2OJustAddWater'' and ''Series/DanceAcademy.'' [[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.

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.

On July 25, 2011, [=TeenNick=] launched what is now known as the ''Series/NickSplat'' block (formely ''The Splat'' and originally ''Series/The90sAreAllThat''), a block showing [[NostalgiaFilter Nickelodeon's 90s-00s output.]] In 2015, the channel ended their broadcast of ''Degrassi'' after 14 seasons [[note]]''Degrassi: Next Class'', a direct sequel, would begin streaming on Creator/{{Netflix}} the following year[[/note]], along with all their original programming sans ''[=TeenNick=] Top 10'', and the HALO Awards moved over to the main Nickelodeon channel. [=TeenNick=] is now mainly used for repeats of Nickelodeon's live-action shows from the TurnOfTheMillennium and on, with [=NickSplat=] taking up the rest of the channel's real estate and most of the promotion and attention.

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