Best Nickelodeon Shows of 2017


The Top Ten

1 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. Spongebob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season.

Of course. It's the networks flagship program. Plus it has recovered from seasonal rot. The krabby patty special was awesome, plus all the post-sequel episodes are great except for maybe Life Insurance and Krusty Katering but that was about it. - Cartoonfan202

Nick is now making an Invader Zim movie! - Cartoonfan202

The modern episodes are surprisingly good. - Catacorn

Because I love to watch since it was made

2 The Loud House The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. more.

I know this show has a really bad reputation on this site, so I hope I don't get hated on. In fact, I purposefully put all the other cartoons ahead of this. It may have toilet humor and bad episodes such as Brawl in the Family, but its an original and creative cartoon in its own right. - Cartoonfan202

I'm 15 years old and I really enjoy this show... I first found it when I was babysitting my cousin, and it was the only cartoon on. The thing I love about this show is that it reminds me of some of the older Nickelodeon and although it has some moments where I want to groan and roll my eyes, it's usually genuinely funny. Whenever I watch it I feel like I'm in 4th grade again and just got back from elementary school, because this is definitely the show I would've put on.

Not the greatest Nick show but I still like it. It's the only new thing on Nick that I really watch because I find it geuinely good. Sure it has problems but hey I'd rather have shows like this over shows like Uncle Grandpa and Breadwinners any day. Also yes I am aware on this show getting a bad rep on this website (probably because of a certain user being an overly obsessive fangirl, not naming names) but hey I still respect those who dislike the show even if I personally enjoy it (for the most part). - Anonymousxcxc

I think the loud house is REALLY FUNNY! One night me and Daddy were waching the Loud house it was so FUNNY that daddy laughed his head off Thank you Nick

3 Alvinnn!! and the Chipmunks Alvinnn!! and the Chipmunks

It's very funny

I don't really like Alvin and the chipmunks I used to watch it but now I don't the voices are annoying

Ranging from mediocre to average mostly, but still worth a watch - growlbunny

I don't like Alvin and the chipmunks. Their voices are annoying and Dave is a bad parent
This is not a good show

4 Bunsen is a Beast Bunsen is a Beast Busen is a Beast is created by Fairly Odd Parents creator Butch Hartman. The show tells about a monster named Bunsen who goes to a human school and has many adventures.

Maybe I'm being too generous by putting this at the top spot, but whatever. Anyway, the show promotes diversity and has a unique art style for a Butch Hartman cartoon. According to the Nick Podcast, it has professional voice acting and tons of effort put into it. My favorite episode is when they had a crossover with The Fairly OddParents. It may not have a lot of episodes, but pretty soon it will air between the Nick Jr. block and the sitcom block along with Spongebob and Loud House, which is super great because that chunk of airtime did not have much diversity. It used to have Alvin and the Chipmunks but it was soon dropped. Maybe TMNT will air in that chunk of time too! - Cartoonfan202

I might do a list of Best Disney Channel Shows of 2017. I'm not going to do a Cartoon Network one because Cartoon Network doesn't have that much good content nowadays. - Cartoonfan202

I could've sworn that a user that made this list would make a list of "Best Disney Channel Shows of 2017"! - The Ultimate Daredevil, who mostly loves Bunsen Is a Beast

One of the most underrated shows ever.

5 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Okay, the show may have way too much merchandise, but it is still great and has action and a story arc, which most Nicktoons today don't. I'm glad that Nickelodeon bought this series. Plus its getting a spinoff in 2018. - Cartoonfan202

One of the few good Nicktoons that are still running today. I've been watching it ever since I was a kid, and I remember watching the old cartoons and reading the comics too. - TwilightKitsune

This is one of my favorite shows of all time! I just got back into watching it, and now I'm like "Why did I ever stop watching this? " This should be number one, or at least number two (Spongebob's tough to beat).

The popular cartoon is teenage mutant ninja turtles

6 Harvey Beaks Harvey Beaks Harvey Beaks is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Nickelodeon. Originally announced to premiere on March 29, 2015, the series instead premiered on March 28, 2015 following the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards.

Harvey is a character who is strong by having a good nature, Fee is a character who is rude, impulsive and reckless but she remains likeable and foo is a character who serves as a comic relief but he can be taken seriously. It was A MISTAKE for Nick to cancel this show after its second season this show really deserved a third season.

One of the real stars of modern Nickelodeon. Likeable characters, most things about this are perfect. This should be at least number 3. - SoSheolH

Harvey Beaks is a great show where most episodes have life lessons, its too its ending but its comedy shall LIVE ON!, WHO'S WITH ME!?

Watching The Loud House just makes me depressed that this show ended so soon. Adding insult to injury, the show was cancelled solely because it couldn't match SpongeBob and TLH's ratings! C.H. Greenblatt also seemed to imply that the Alvin and the Chipmunks reboot (also a moderate ratings success) had something to do with it.

7 Welcome to the Wayne Welcome to the Wayne

This show just came out, and it's already incredibly underrated. Everyone dismisses it as "A shameless Gravity Falls rip off," and, albeit it does have some Gravity Falls inspired elements, it's its own cartoon. The mystery/monster element is present, and done pretty well. The characters, although a bit flat, are hilarious and have evident chemistry. Plus, there are some REALLY funny one-liners mixed in with the action and mystery, and it's a good balance. If you have the time, please check this show out. Knowing Nickelodeon, this show isn't going to last that long (or last so long, the novelty wears off), so enjoy it while it lasts. I recommend this to anyone who misses Gravity Falls, like I do.

CRUCIALLY underrated - growlbunny

Again, its also not out yet, but its coming out this year along with Pinky Malinky and possibly Mysticons and Sky Rat (but Mysticons and SR weren't announced at the upfront). It used to be a digital mini-series, but now they're making it into a full-fledged series. it seems promising. - Cartoonfan202

Bruce Wayne is way better. - Extractinator04

8 Hunter Street Hunter Street

It gives me a House of Anubis vibe. Its not a New Girl At School drama, and its not a sitcom with overplayed laugh tracks, but it's a show about mysteries and 5 foster children named Max, Anika, Tess, Daniel and Sal who are trying to find their missing parents. Sal is my favorite because is kind of like me. Unlike other shows on Nickelodeon, the family genuinely loves each other. I keep watching every weekday. Too bad that it will get taken off the air after its first season, like all the other story arc shows. Nick, please renew this for a season 2! - Cartoonfan202

Hunter Street is a great show, but once the family solves the mission, there will be no point in making a season 2. - TopTenHaters

Even though this is not my favorite show of all time, I can nevertheless feel any fun factor with this. I am glad that the family the protagonists of Hunter Street genuinely love each other, but aren't the protagonists' parents adoptive? Also, if Hunter Street's main story is meant to be about kids finding their adoptive parents, then there seems to be solely one point in having a first season.

Its an okay show, but I feel a House of Anubis touch to this show. But nonetheless, its nice. - Catacorn

Best show I have ever seen

9 Paradise Run Paradise Run

Sounds like Super Mario Run in heaven. - Extractinator04

This show is a game show, and it is really cool and it was better than other live action shows such as Crashletes. At least Crashletes, Rank the Prank, and Jagger Eaton's Mega Life have not been announced at Nickelodeon's upfront, making them cancelled. Shame that Paradise Run got shafted to NickSports, but luckily it was renewed for a season 3. - Cartoonfan202

10 Ride Ride

It's not the greatest Nickelodeon show ever but it wasn't the worse either. I can't stand shows like Make It Pop, and this was way better than that. Even though the show shows teen rebellion and has some of the other problems as other Nickelodeon one-month series. Even so, the show was decent. Its second season aired in Canada, so maybe it will air soon here in the United States. - Cartoonfan202

Ride on my butt. - Extractinator04

Ride is brilliant

"Ride on my butt." LOL. Agreed. Ride could be much more three-dimensional. I feel like Ride promotes some bestiality. - The Ultimate Daredevil to Extractinator04

The Newcomers

? Dragon Ball Z Kai
? Mysticons

Its horrid

The Contenders

11 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.

Well, the theme song is a rip-off of the Wizards of waverly place theme song. Also the thundermans apparently getting a movie because THIS managed to be the highest rated show on Prickelodeon. Yes, it even beat Spongebob AND Loud House. - Cartoonfan202

How?! Who actually watches Nick sitcoms? Especially ones that are Incredibles rip-offs. - Anonymousxcxc

Great show for superhero fans.

Best show ever! Don't like it? How do you sleep at night?

No worries! This show won't be here for long. There's a possibility that this show will get cancelled soon later this year or in 2018.

12 Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn is an American television sitcom produced by Nickelodeon. The series focuses on 10-year-old, later 11-year-old quadruplets Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn Harper . They have nothing in common and often fight, but they must work together to solve everyday situations .

This show is terrible. I can tell whats gonna happen 1 minute into the episode, and what I predict really happens. Its that predictable.

This show is so corny and predictable. - Cartoonfan202

Dumbest show - FroYolo

13 Henry Danger Henry Danger Henry Danger is an American superhero sitcom television series airing on Nickelodeon. The series was created by Dan Schneider and Dana Olsen. The series revolves around a 13-year-old boy who becomes the sidekick of a local superhero.

The only danger in this show is the danger of the audience getting bored until they kill themselves. - Extractinator04

Sometimes I have to sit through an episode of this if I want to watch Hunter Street. This show gives me headaches. - Cartoonfan202

I actually enjoy this show

Favorite show ever

14 Pinky Malinky Pinky Malinky

I know this show isn't out yet, but its coming on April 15. I know this seems similar to Gumball, but it looks really good. It also apparently promotes diversity, I watched a Nick Animation YouTube video and there were these ladies talking about the creation of the show, and one of them said she was proud to work on the show because one of the characters is a black mom, just like her. - Cartoonfan202

Looks like Penises: The Show. - Extractinator04

Oops, my bad. This is actually coming in early 2018. - Cartoonfan202

Penis Malinky has great animation, but I am very skeptical about this show. It heavily borrows from Cartoon Network's The Amazing World of Gumball. It is also a mockumentary. You also get Lucas Grabeel and Nathan Kress, whose voices are a bit grating/tweeny-sounding. Also, Nickelodeon (the company that brought us these disgusting Dan Schneider coms in the 2010s, Regal Academy, Planet Sheen, Fanboy & Chum-Chum, The Last Airbender movie, the later Fred Figglehorn franchise, Kids Coice Awards and etc) is making this. I think because of the phallic references, this might be a little too inappropriate for its target demographic. It also feels pretty typical. Either way, this could exceed expectations.

15 Game Shakers Game Shakers Game Shakers is an American television sitcom created by Dan Schneider that premiered on Nickelodeon on September 12, 2015. The series revolves around two seventh graders named Babe and Kenzie who start the multi-million-dollar title gaming company and who take on rap superstar Double G as their business more.

The Disney Brain was 90% right that Game Shakers sucked cock. The characters were executed as one-dimensional caricatures. There were some adults that made children uncomfortable on purpose. Dan Schneider made the humor Kel Mitchell has very weak. Game Shakers makes gamers feel a lot less insulted by Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything.

This show is dumb. - Cartoonfan202

Just like Henry Danger, this show is crap. - TopTenHaters

Who knew a science project could be valuable? When Babe and Kenzie created the mobile game "Sky Whale" for a seventh-grade project, they were just hoping for a passing grade. What they got, however, was one of the most popular games of the year, which led them to create a successful business that ma kes millions of dollars. Not everyone is happy with the girls, though; popular rapper Double G threatens to sue them when he finds out they have used one of his songs without his permission. To avoid any legal issues Babe and Kenzie decide to partner with the music star and hire his son, Triple G, as a gaming consultant. "Game Shakers" marks a return to Nickelodeon for Kel Mitchell (Double G), who first rose to fame in the '90s on the network's series "All That" and "Kenan & Kel."

16 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

Unfortunately, no. As of 2017, the show has officially gotten eaten by a shark in its attempt to jump said shark after introducing far too many new characters in an attempt to keep The Fairly OddParents relevant. Now I admire Butch Hartman's work and all, but after the debut of Chloe, not only did it make the show EVEN WORSE than before in terms of quality as it took attention away from Timmy and his fairies to focus solely on Chloe more, but it also led to the show getting sent to Nicktoons, where it will most likely get cancelled since it will probably get low ratings as Nicktoons is essentially a dumping place for Nickelodeon animated series to die out. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

OLD FairlyOdd parents was awesome. But after the episode where Poof was born, the show started to go downhill. Then after Chloe premiered, the show became trash. - TopTenHaters

NO, it's awful now. What is it doing here? - DCfnaf

This show is way better than The Loud House and Sanjay and Craig. I watch this since I was little [ until new charters came ]. There is still a chance for it to go uphill again. They just have to take out the new charters and put back the old charters back. The good news is I haven't saw Sparky since Chloe came. PLEASE TAKE OUT THE NEW CHARTERS.

17 I Am Frankie I Am Frankie

This is made by the same people who brought us "classics" like Every Witch Way and Talia in the Kitchen. This show seems like a live action rip-off of My Life As a Teenage Robot. - Cartoonfan202

Umm I've never heard of this show - FroYolo

good show

Im watching the premiere right now because this show is kind of a guilty pleasure for me. Even though it's the most unoriginal show of all time:
1. It's based off of Yo Soy Franky
2. It rips off My Life as a Teenage Robot
3. It uses the cliche New Girl At School plot.
But at least it's more watchable than Henry Danger. - Cartoonfan202

18 Victorious Victorious Victorious is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider that originally aired on Nickelodeon from March 27, 2010 through February 2, 2013 . The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, a teenager who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts High School, after taking her more.

This ended in 2013 guys! - Cartoonfan202

Just another boring show for teenagers... There's a laugh track after every sentence... - PeeledBanana

Ariana Grande is terrible, even for a prissy-ass opinion-nazi. But Victorius does not exist, not even with reruns?

They have comedy and talent

19 School of Rock School of Rock School of Rock is an American musical live-action sitcom which premiered March 12, 2016 on Nickelodeon. The series, based on the 2003 film of the same name, stars Breanna Yde, Ricardo Hurtado, Jade Pettyjohn, Lance Lim, Aidan Miner, Tony Cavalero, and Jama Williamson.

Eh its not that bad but its not as good as spongebob and loud house. - Cartoonfan202

I no joke binge watched both seasons in a single day...please no judgement

I voted because Spongebob is from 1999. When I knew this is coming, I thought it's stupid and wasn't interested until inadventerly watching an episode. Than, I get it. THIS IS THE BEST 2017 SHOW!

Stupid show. - PeeledBanana

20 Rank the Prank Rank the Prank

This is a stupid knock-off of Walk the Prank

It makes Prank Stars look like a smart, promising show.

Are you kidding me?! The pranks are so cringy and lame and is an obvious rip-off of "Walk the Prank."

This show is sooo dumb. - Cartoonfan202
