41 Every Witch Way Every Witch Way Every Witch Way is an American telenovela-formatted teen sitcom that originally aired on Nickelodeon from January 1, 2014, to July 30, 2015. It is the American version of the Nickelodeon Latin American show Grachi.

This show deserves to be in the Top Ten, it's good to know and realize that Nickelodeon has finally made something good for once after all those years, when there were no good shows, First of all, There's a good plot, Also there's no laugh track, The quality is also very good and watchable, unlike the quality of the other shows, which seem bad in comparison, also the characters are nice in both looks, words and actions, yet this show also has good morals, and it also has an improvement method in the acting that doesn't happen in the other shows in this era, And this is the first time in years that Nick has finally made a show that drew millions of viewers that are actually fans, which makes this show the most successful Nick show in a long time, and it became such a big hit that they're making a spinoff of it soon, and it better be a good one.

This show is so underrated, you guys who watch this show should know that, for a long time, since Nickelodeon has been making really bad shows in the modern years, for the live action brand, Nickelodeon has unleashed a new generation in the good side of the live-action brand, and that generation began in January 1, 2014 with Every Witch Way, and a year later, Nickelodeon has refreshened it's cartoon generation with Harvey Beaks, the best new cartoon on Nick since The Legend of Korra, The Legend of Korra got banned from T.V. because of low ratings and there haven't been anymore good nicktoons until Harvey Beaks, and since SpongeBob SquarePants and The Fairly OddParents got messed up years ago, The only two good shows on Nickelodeon nowadays are Every Witch Way and Harvey Beaks, and with the promo for 100 Things and the W.I.T. Academy being a spin off of Every Witch Way with the same format, It's no doubt that those next two shows will be good, but since Nickelodeon's running out of ...more

This show is the best show ever. I wouldn't say it is better than Zoey 101 but it is such a good show. WHY DID IT HAVE TO GO ON FOR ONLY A MONTH! It could have gone on for maybe a couple of years. Nickelodeon, please put some reruns of this show. I just love that show!

This could be bad news for Every Witch Way and it's fans, every time a show comes on and many a lot of people like/love it, it gets cancelled before it finishes, because Nickelodeon and Viacom constantly want more and more money for their own sake to rule the world, someone needs to fly to Viacom & Nickelodeon Inc and videotape them to the whole world and let them make a promise around the world not to cancel anymore good shows ever again, then they can have their money without cancelling the shows, that way, Every Witch Way & the rest of Nickelodeon can be saved.

Why isn't it No. 1?!

42 The Haunted Hathaways The Haunted Hathaways The Haunted Hathaways is a Nickelodeon sitcom television series that began airing on July 13, 2013 and ended on March 5, 2015. It tells the story of a single mother and her two daughters who move into a home occupied by three ghosts, a single father and his two sons.

This show is a ripoff of barney

There was hardly any horror in this show, it was too weak and not scary at all, there were plot holes everywhere, it was just one of those typical sitcoms with bad teenagers making nonsense every second and there's a laugh track everywhere, even when it's not funny, Stop making dumb shows Nick.

The two biggest problems of this show are bad acting and to much fluid jokes

If this isn't creepy, why did you add ghosts? Aren't ghosts supposed to have ripped and old clothing, and they wouldn't just make friends with the gals, they would scare the hist outta them. - Ohno

43 ChalkZone ChalkZone ChalkZone is an American animated television series created by Bill Burnett and Larry Huber for Nickelodeon.

Chalkzone was an awesome show back in the very early 2000's it was my all time #1 favorite show on Nickelodeon and Nickelodeon cancelled it a couple of years later, and Nickelodeon was really retarded to take that show off. I mean I know it wasn't really all that popular but was a really good show anyway! And it's still my favorite nick show to this day!

The 90s Nicktoons get all the attention they deserve, the 2010s Nicktoons are trash, SpongeBob and Fairly OddParents have been going on for over 10 years, Jimmy Neutron and Avatar both got sub-par spin-offs, and every other 2000s Nicktoon has been tossed off to the side like it never existed. Sure Invader Zim was underrated during its original run, but it's overrated now. ChalkZone was truly original with its idea about a dimesion of chalk. It had a creative premise, great animation, interesting characters, and exciting plots. It could be funny and serious at the same time It saddens me that this show never got a DVD release and most people don't remember it. In Comparison to ChalkZone, Invader Zim is lame.

Underrated classic! A lot of people hate but I thought it was funny!

The show roots came from an older Nickelodeon that was oh yeah cartoons other cartoons that came from oh yeah cartoons where my life as a teenage robot and the fairy odd parents

44 Robot and Monster Robot and Monster

They ripped of Fanboy and chum chum, nice Job because that was the worst show on nick.

I guess it's pretty good. Like Fanboy and Chum Chum with better humor. And less terrible characters. Instead of them both being idiots, one is an idiot and the smart one balances it out. Say what you want, but I like it. - Garythesnail

Laugh out loud this show got cancelled like two days after it was aired. I can see why.

Cute show!... I guess...

45 Degrassi Degrassi Degrassi: The Next Generation (later renamed Degrassi for seasons ten through fourteen) is a Canadian teen drama television series set in the Degrassi universe, which was created by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood in 1979. It is the fourth series in the Degrassi franchise, following The Kids of Degrassi more.

There's so much drama. You never know what's going to happen next!

An amazing teen drama show. Anyone with teennick that doesn't watch this show is missing out. It has everything from interesting and relate-able characters to some occasional fun humor and romance. Its far more deep and meaningful than most other shows on Nickelodeon by far.

I've been a solid Degrassi fan for years. I LOVE DEGRASSI! I've watched every single episode. Even the ones from the 80's. This is a truly amazing show and if you've never seen it I highly suggest you watch every single episode and buy it on itunes or netflix it! You can't instant stream it on Netflix, unfortunately. Degrassi and Hey Arnold are the BEST shows nick has EVER done.

This show is inappropriate for children under 14, parents or friends won't let you watch it if you're under that age.

I hate the drama.There's so much drama it's lacks anything you can laugh at

46 Legends of the Hidden Temple

I loved this show when it was on. I was also a fan of endurance, and when that canceled, this was the next best thing. When this got canceled I alost cried. It was the fourth best reality show I've ever seen.

Best show in Nick history, I am just scrolling through this list, and just a FLOOD of memories is coming back
This show had everything, trivia, endurance, and so much more

They have to bring this back within the next 5 years. GO PURPLE PARROTS. My favorite one is the one where the temple guard in the room of the ancient kings scars the kid out of the temple

Okay so why is the Thundermans ahead of this. - Anonymousxcxc

48 T.U.F.F. Puppy T.U.F.F. Puppy T.U.F.F. Puppy is a cartoon created by Butch Hartman. It ran on Nickelodeon from October 2, 2010 until April 4, 2015. It focused on Dudley Puppy and his partner Kitty Katswell as they protected Petropolis under the Turbo Undercover Fighting Force, or T.U.F.F.

This isn't my favorite Nick show. Regardless, I'm voting it because I'd like to see it higher on the list. It's a unique idea that has surprisingly decent writing and humor, along with pop-culture references like the parody of the Brady Bunch theme song. It's probably my favorite Nick show beginning 2010 or after. - Garythesnail

I Really Love How This Show Is So Unpredictible. And Doesn't Have To Destroy The Writers Thought Process To BE Funny

Good Plot, Animation, Comedy, and it is the 2nd most Watched Show with kids 2-14! Better than Penguins, Anubis, and SpongeBob

You mean SpongeBob after the 2004 movie, SpongeBob after that is what you must be really talking about.

One of the most underrated Cartoons of all time. This would be my 4th favorite nicktoon.

49 BrainSurge

I love Brain surge when the people from the television shows come on. I love the brain drain because its all slimy. I went on the Nick site and I went on Brain surge and did the quizzes and the game to test yourself and I did awesome. The only bad thing about this show is that it doesn't come on Nickelodeon that much so I can't really watch Brain surge that much anymore. Brain surge is also awesome because you can win prizes even if you lose. If I were on the show I would probably make it to the story part because at my age now, I have really bad comprehension. Why is it not on Nickelodeon anymore? That's probably why nobody voted for this show! The shows on the top are on still. I'd really like to know why it's not on Nickelodeon anymore because I watched this show all the time!

Brainsurge is cool about the puzzles and knockout round. Even Family Brainsurge. To bad its not in Nickelodeon anymore.

When I was little ( probably 5 ) this show scared the crap out of me. I got really freaked out when the people when down the brain drain. At least the backyardigans halloween dress up game on my moms laptop calmed me down. It may not be scary for me now but it did when I was 5 - YoshiApple

I miss this show, I wanted to ride down the brain drain so badly. - Catacorn

50 Make It Pop Make It Pop Make It Pop is a K-pop inspired Canadian–American musical comedy series in a telenovela-like format that currently airs on Nickelodeon in the United States and on YTV in Canada.

Make It Pop is so racist, it shouldn't be on here, There are no Korean men, and the females are white, K-Pop is the EXACT opposite of what this show is like, even though it's about K-Pop. - nelsonerica

I am 11 years old I'm my gosh make it pop is so girly I am a Tomboy and I hate 50 percent of girly stuff but make it pop NO I can't live this show I can't stand this show the need to cancelled it

Kids don't need to watch time travel, music, dance, or magic shows or movies! By this time kids need to watch movies about mystery, friendship, superheroes!

This show is so funny and family friendly. The songs are great.

51 The Thundermans The Thundermans The Thundermans is an American tween sitcom created by Jed Springarn. The show first aired in 2013 and is still running as of 2016. This show is about a family of superheroes who have adjusted to living a normal suburban life. On July 27, 2017, Nickelodeon released a statement to J-14, stating that more.

This show sucks. The acting is awful and it rips off the Incredibles to a point where it's unwatchable. It's supposed to be a show about a superhero family, yet the plotlines are always about school/family drama crap. The superpowers are only there when the plot demands them to be. Also, the theme song says something about keeping the secret, meanwhile they have a PHOTOGRAPH in their LIVING ROOM of them all posed like superheroes, in costumes. What if a friend comes over and sees that? What are they going to think? It's also a ripoff of Lab Rats, except Lab Rats is better because the actors can act and the plot actually has relevance to the main characters' powers. - Grayson

It has a laugh track because no one else will laugh at the unfunny jokes. - Discord

This show is great. Unlike some other shows, the humor is good quality and my parents even enjoy this show. Why do you think it is on it's 4th season and won the Kids Choice Award for best T.V. show? Because it is a very popular and great show. It is currently my favorite nick show, and I think it should be at least in the top ten. By the way, the photograph in their living room has a button they press to reveal a normal photo of them in normal clothes. Whenever friends come over they click that button. The reason the storyline is based on school/family drama is to create a good story for the show in which often they use their superhero attributes to do something. Sure, it is slightly based on the incredibles, but every show is lightly based on one before it's time. The jokes are funny and appropriate, and not only kids like it. As I mentioned earlier, my parents enjoy this show. This is my favorite currently running Nickelodeon show and it is overall a great Television program.

Why is thundermans on the list that the worst show ever at least it not higher this shows sucks as dora it rip off
the incredible which is a good movie cancel this show now I want to make that bunnies not talk at all

52 True Jackson, VP

Amazing show! Great characters all round! Favorite is the fab Keke Palmer.

Hilarious, it's about a teenager being in a big buissness, it has a really fun contrast between teenagers and adult buissness, and they mad it completely hilarious, I have to say this is my favorite nick show!

I miss this show so much why don't they play it anymore

I actually never watched this. The Nickcoms I like are Clarissa Explains It All, Pete and Pete, Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts, Alex Mack, Drake and Josh, Kenan and Kel, Zoey 101, Ned's Declassified, iCarly (before it went downhill), 100 Things, Legendary Dudas, and some episodes of Victorious. I hate all the other sitcoms that premiered after Victorious like Fred: the Show, Henry Danger, and Sam and Cat. If I can find any episodes of True Jackson online, I might watch it. - Cartoonfan202

53 Friends

Friends is one of my favorite nick shows! I especially like chandler and joey and my favorite episode is chandler in a box. Seriously guys, this is the best nick show and should be number one, not eighty-eight!

Everybody loves that show and I mean from all over the world. I wonder why is it so behind on the list

I've seen every episode and I especially love Phoebe. This should be at the top.

Never even heard of this show

54 100 Things to Do Before High School 100 Things to Do Before High School 100 Things to Do Before High School is an American children's sitcom airing on Nickelodeon and created by Scott Fellows. The program stars Isabela Moner, Jaheem Toombs, Owen Joyner, and Jack De Sena.

This show aired in 2014 and will show the rest of the episodes later this year, For one thing, It's not like the typical garbage crap comedies that lack plot, have laugh tracks, and teach people bad things, This one is actually good and decent, Did you know that it was created by the same person who created Ned's Declassified and Big Time Rush? True and also it's better than Big Time Rush. - nelsonerico

It was a movie, but the show is coming and it's supposed to be great. - nelsonerico6

It's a great show compared to the other shows we have now, yet we hope it gets another season, considering that the previous show, WITS Academy got cancelled just so recently after one season, they might cancel this show too instead of renew it for another season, so we might have to worry.

I like this show it is awesome I don't care if people don't like that show because I like this show it awesome I am kid so I like it there I said it

Cancelled in 2016 Way to Go Nickelodeon

55 The Secret World of Alex Mack

Totally awesome show! I rewatched a few episodes on YouTube. Awesome and full of great characters and so full of action! Everybody should want to be like Alex because not only is she nice and kind...


Ack-hem? Did we forget about our amazingly relatable middle school mutant girl here? I rented the first season on dvd but couldn't find much more. I wish they'd show it more but it's so underrated. I love it!

57 Unfabulous Unfabulous Unfabulous is an American children's television series that aired on Nickelodeon. The series is about an "unfabulous" middle school student and teenager named Addie Singer, played by Emma Roberts. The show, which debuted in late summer 2004, was one of the most-watched programs in the United States more.

Not a bad series. Did you know Hannah Montana is rip-off this show?

This sitcom was dumb at first, then it got better by the end of season one. Unlike Drake and Josh, Unfabulous had somewhat morals. The characters went through plenty of character development, plenty of funny moments, the episodes were flashback, a unique way to begin a episode. Watching Unfabulous reminds me of myself when I was in middle school. So what Addie was bratty? I was once a bratty middle school girl too. There are barely series like this these days. It was not about being rich and famous. It was about growing up and dealing with sticky situations. Unfabulous was fabulous.

Drake & Josh was very funny and had morals, but it had boring visuals, boring music, boring plot and no awesome effects to spice it up, Adding those things and taking away the laugh track would make this show more like Ned's Declassified, but with two central characters to focus on. - nelsonerico6

This is a great show! Kinda stupid at some parts but still funny.

It was a stupid show with boring and lame music and there was hardly even a plot, it had only a little bit of comedy and the music was about almost nothing and contained almost no life learning lessons, the name of the show perfectly describes it's nature.

I love it! #jaddie4ever

59 Watch My Chops

Probably one of the only good and funny shows to air on nick and nicktoons after 2004
Most people including me know it as Corneil and Bernie, but its awesome.
It's like a combo of Wallace and Grombit, family guy South Park, simpsons, and beta is and butthead

60 The Troop The Troop The Troop is an American-Canadian live-action, single camera comedy-adventure television series about a trio of teenagers who fight and capture monsters and other supernatural phenomena that invade the fictional town of Lakewood.

I love the troop. It's about them fighting monsters and it's awesome. They fight all these weird monsters including one that can shape shift! If you love monsters you will like this show. It has a lot of action and adventure.

This show is so stupid! I hope they nuke it FOREVER.
It's just so horrific it sucks so bad that it's for babies just killer
Plus I hate this show.

I love this show, one of my top 10! It's really cool!

Yeah! I hate this show too! It's so creepy and disgusting!
