Adored By The Network / The Loud House

Go To

A combination of positive reception among viewers and surprisingly good ratings has led to The Loud House gaining the Adored by the Network status by Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon has aired the show more times than fellow cash cow SpongeBob SquarePants each week, and has given it more marathons than they have had for SpongeBob in the past two years.note

  • The year it premiered, the show was renewed for two more seasons.
  • Sometimes, Nick will play surprise reruns of The Loud House in place of other shows. They'll even sacrifice an hour or more of SpongeBob for the show, and it took over the 5:00PM to 6:00PM weekday slot that SpongeBob had held for a decade in the fall of 2016.note 
  • Ever since fall 2017, Sunday afternoons are devoted to nothing but this show up until 6:00PM.
  • The episode "Pipe Dreams" got this treatment throughout 2018. It received heavy promotion because of the focus on the parents, and there was even a marathon before its' first rerun. After its' premiere week, "Pipe Dreams" and its pairing episode "Net Gains" would air every single weekend like clockwork for an entire year.

  • They had an all-day marathon on March 18, 2018 to compete with an hour-long block of new Adventure Time episodes on Cartoon Network.
  • On March 21, 2018, the Nick Jr. block ended an hour early so that Nick could show an hour and a half of episodes for those stuck inside during a nor-easter that same day. Keep in mind that it's rare for Nick to do this on a weekday when kids are in school.
  • In October of 2018, "Tricked!" played every single day of the month, a surprising treatment for a Halloween special being that other shows did not repeat theirs this often.
  • By far, the most hyped-up episode by Nick was the "Cooked!" special, which aired on President's Day in 2019. Not only did Nickelodeon air a boatload of promos for it and hold a big all-day marathon to promote it, but the episode was re-run three times on the day it premiered. Nick followed this up by airing the special every single day, sometimes airing it twice in a day, though this ended in late March.
    • The same treatment was given to "Friended! With The Casagrandes", except that said episode ran five times that day and it got more promotion than "Cooked!" did, with ads appearing a month before it aired.
  • The spin-off The Casagrandes was heavily promoted before it premiered, with ads appearing every break and Nick airing 5 Poorly Disguised Pilots for it. When the show premiered, reruns began airing immediately despite there only being one episode. On top of that, reruns of the show will occasionally take the slots of The Loud House and even SpongeBob SquarePants at the last minute, and, on a similar note, replaces The Loud House reruns when there's either a SpongeBob SquarePants marathon that day or a special event that Nick is hyping up. (examples of this have included the premiere of Top Elf and the primetime premiere of PAW Patrol: Ready, Race, Rescue!)
    • On December 25, 2019, an all-afternoon marathon of The Casagrandes was run for Christmas, with three regular episodes of The Loud House ("11 Louds A Leapin'", "Snow Way Out; Snow Way Down" and "Tails Of Woe; Last Loud On Earth") mixed in.

  • Season 5 was announced before Season 4 even premiered, making it one of the rare, long running, non-preschool Nick shows, the fourth longest running Nicktoonnote , and the longest-running Nicktoon of the 2010s.
  • To entertain kids stuck in the house due to school-related closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, every weekday afternoon since mid-March has been a three-hour marathon of The Loud House.
  • During the week of July 20, 2020, it aired more than SpongeBob. During this week, the show had a week-long event called "The Loud House Smarty Pants Challenge".
  • Two days before Season 5 premiered, the show was renewed for Season 6, making it the fourth Nicktoon to make it past the fifth seasonnote .
  • January 22, 2021 marked the first time in 13 and a half years that SpongeBob did not air on the main Nickelodeon channel. Instead, outside of Nick@Nite and Nick Jr., most of the schedule was a Loud House marathon and new episodes of The Loud House and The Casagrandes.
  • The Nicktoons channel airs a Loud House Marathon once in a while, stylized as "Loud House Takeover". This briefly replaces SpongeBob during the night shift.
