* ScapegoatCreator: Cyma Zarghami, the network’s fourth president from 2006-2018, tends to get the most blame for Nickelodeon’s NetworkDecay. Since it was during her tenure that [=SpongeBob=] was over-aired, new [=NickToons=] became less original and had shorter runs, and the network struggled more in appealing to new generations of kids, she eventually became one of the most hated presidents in cable TV history.


** Thankfully, things have slowly improved since then, with Nick focusing a lot more on their retro fans, with the launch of Series/{{The 90s Are All That}}/[The /Nick]Splat on [[Creator/TeenNICK TeenNick]]. Two of their newer shows (''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'') also managed to capture that classic Nicktoon feel and gained noticeable [[PeripheryDemographic Periphery Demographics]] while still being something for the same demographic to enjoy.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: Nickelodeon has been severely accused of this in recent years. The general problem goes like this: Nickelodeon has stated several times that they seek to appeal to a 6-11 demographic in everything they do. The issue is that they basically ignore everyone else, producing shows like ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'', ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'', which appeal to their target audience, but are [[BrokenBase divisive]] ''at best'' to everyone else. It also didn't help that for a time, they seemed to completely forget to acknowledge their older fans and shows, instead trying to push forward their new shows.

Around the time of the ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'' franchise came to life, Nick started getting more popular.



* SnarkBait: Became this in June of 2019 due to the following reasons:
** Greenlighting a ''[=SpongeBob=]'' spinoff despite a spinoff of the show being against the late Stephen Hillenburg's wishes. [[CreatorBacklash Even Paul Tibbit and Rob Renzetti criticized it]].
** Abruptly ending their Pride Month promotion due to it attracting much controversy from MoralGuardians.
** Airing off the clock thanks to the ''Camp Nick'' shorts airing during commercial breaks.
** Drake Bell criticizing the ''Series/AllThat'' reboot.
** Greenlighting yet another Website/YouTube import, a show based off of Pinkfong's "Baby Shark".
** Using a fanmade ''[=SpongeBob=]'' background in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9ja7IZ594Y this promo]] without the artist's permission, and to add insult to injury, [[https://twitter.com/LolwutLWB/status/1144099676917911553 removing the artist's signature from said background]].
** In general, Nick has always been the target of scorn by many animation fans thanks to the nonstop bad decisions they done over the years, such as changing a logo because it didn't suit well on a business card, passing on ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' (which aired on CN instead), constantly moving a cartoon to Nicktoons if ratings are not as great as [=SpongeBob=]'s (Korra moving to online was one of the lowest points), and more. Because of all the damage Nick has done, people don't seem to be excited for most of the upcoming Nicktoons these days since they know they can't trust Nick by keeping it alive if the ratings are decent.

* WinBackTheCrowd: After a particularly disastrous 2014, Nick seems to be doing all it can to win back its fans from 2015 onward (at least in the animation department). ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'' and the latter half of Season 9 managed to win back [=SpongeBob=] fans, thanks to having [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight Stephen Hillenburg and several original crew members]] back on board, featuring writing and humor more faithful to the first 3 seasons and [[CharacterRerailment de-flanderizing the characters]]. Then, C.H. Greenblatt's ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'' was praised for being more down to earth, having more wholesome humor, and not rehashing the same [[HeterosexualLifePartners "bromance"]] theme of [[WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum other]] [[WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig recent]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}} Nicktoons]]. And finally, the network announced they were working to reboot some of their old series. This includes recruiting Creator/CraigBartlett to finally produce something classic Nick fans have been wanting for 15 years: ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold The Jungle Movie''. Things also seem to be slowly improving in 2016, what with the near-unanimous praise of ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' and cancelling ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'' via the [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Nicktoons Death Slot]]. These improvements especially stick out against main rival Cartoon Network, which seemed to [[DorkAge lose its touch in multiple ways at the same time this was all happening at Nick]]. They solidified it HARD when come early 2017, Nick announced they were making an '''''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''''' film, much to the surprise of fans, even more so when Jhonen Vasquez himself too confirmed it was true.

* Mis-blamed: SpongeBob is often blamed by some older viewers of the network, claiming that it ruined Nickelodeon due to its success and ridiculous premise. Since it became more mainstream and Cyma Zarghami took over as President (until 2018), whenever a show (especially a Nicktoons) gets cancelled, people will usually take it out on the sponge, while in reality it's the executives' fault for caring too much about ratings in order to keep a show alive.
