Top Ten Reasons to Hate Nickelodeon

The Top Ten
1 Nick Has Bad Shows

They have TERRIBLE, BAD, AWFUL, shows. Example: Breadwinners, Sanjay and Craig, Pig Goat Banana Cricket, Fanboy and Chum Chum, and The loud house. It had good shows like Spongebob, Invader Zim, Rugrats, all of Butch Hartman's shows, and so on. But they canceled Rugrats and Invader Zim and Spongebob and Butch Hartman's shows got bad over the years. It just goes to show that there is nothing that Nick can't ruin.

They continue to make TERRIBLE shows. Sanjay and Craig, BreadWinners, Pig Goat Banana Cricket, and so on. Their new live action shows suck too, Bella and the Bulldogs, really? The last good sitcom they made was iCarly, or maybe Victorious. But since both shows ended Nick cast them away and quickly replaced them, that is one of the fates of a good Nick show. But one of the most well known paths are those of SpongeBob and Fairly OddParents. Those two are Nickelodeons current legs and backbone, cash cows, longest running, highest rated, and most popular shows. But they degraded MAJORLY over the years. SpongeBob went sour after the movie in 2004 and FOP tumbled down after in 2008. Both shows used to be awesome, and their old episodes I still watch and enjoy. The characters personalities changed, the voices became irritating, plots became weaker, continuity doesn't matter anymore, the jokes are lame, the new animation sucks, and new characters are being thrown in at every turn. To sum it ...more

I don't want to be rude but their shows are not the best anymore. They are inappropriate. In Henry Danger they make a lot of sex jokes. In ICarly they joke about gay people and transgender people and private parts. Also their shows teach no lessons. In Henry Danger and the Thundermans they hate their siblings and are rude to them. They are irresponsible. There are no lessons about family and friends or anything. I also think the plot line is bad for their shows. For example Henry Danger and the Thundermans are about superheroes. I don't really think those are good plots. And Sanjay and Craig is a bad idea to. So is Sam and Cat and a lot more shows. Their shows should be about family and friends. Lastly their jokes aren't funny. In San and Cat they have terrible jokes. In shows all their jokes are them making fun of each other and sex jokes. Disney teaches lessons, gas good jokes, and good plots. Don't be offended by anything I say because it is just my opinion.

They can't make good shows anymore. I was born in 1998 and I liked some of the god ol' Nick shows. In the 90's they had Rugrats, Ren & Stimpey, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold, and in the 00's they had SpongeBob (pre-2009), FairlyOdd Parents, and Jimmy Neutron for Nicktoons. Live action shows? They had All That, The Secret World of Alex Mack, All That, Keenan & Kel, Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, and Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. What do we have now? Nicktoons: Fanboy & Chum Chum, TUFF Puppy, Planet Sheen (all suck) Live action: Fred: The Show, Marvin Marvin, Mr. Meaty, Victorious, and Bucket & Skinners Epic Adventures (all suck). I did think iCarly was OK. But, they lost their touch in 2008. The network went from paradise for great shows to a Hell for pathetic ones. Back in the good ol' days it was the cool kids that liked Nick. Now? It's the brats that like Nick. Back then the targeted demographic was 7 until 13 (sometimes even 14). Now it's target is 5 until 9. It's ...more

2 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is an American animated television series created by Gary "Doodles" DiRaffaele and Steve Borst for Nickelodeon. ...read more.

Everything is wrong with this show! I mean really! There's the fart jokes, The fact that Swaysway and Buhdeuce are so stupid and always thinking that others said the opposite of what they really said, and only Swaysway and Buhdeuce can talk! Plus, the art style is terrible and the fact that they mine for bread was a bad idea!

For crying out loud, Breadwinners is one of the worst show ever made! It makes Johnny Test look like Total Drama (my favorite cartoon) and Sam and Cat look like Wizards Of Waverly Place (my favorite T.V. show)

This show proves that they don't make shows based off creative ideas and instead base them off of graphs and the opinions of some idiotic adults trying to think like kids.

Why did they have to make a show based off of a video that only got like 100,000 views? If it was based off of a video that had over 50,000,000 views that'd be one thing but 100,000 views? Come on now! No wonder why this show sucks.

3 Toilet-Related Humor

Remember that scene from the South Park movie where Sheila and the other mothers chant "BLAME CANADA". Well, I would say that but change it to "BLAME CYMA ZARGHAMI" for all the trash she's given us and how she completely scaled down the demographic. She's worked with the network since the late 1980s. If she was president from then up to now, shows like Ren & Stimpy, Rocko, Clarissa, All That, The Amanda Show, The Angry Beavers, and most of the game shows wouldn't exist at all. Nick would be better off with Chris Viscardi (who's in charge of managing "The Splat" block on TeenNick) or Marc Summers (host of "Double Dare").

Most people who watch Nick are like 8-12 like me and don't think potty jokes are funny. We're not 3! Potty jokes are disgusting and the little kids that do watch Nick probably say these jokes because of Nick! I HATE NICK!

Why nick? WHY? Only 30% of the people on this planet like potty humor! Most kids don't! Shows like Sanjay and Craig that had this kind of humor made me stop watching nick altogether!

Well, I'm a kid And I do actually like this sometimes, spongebob and Sanjay and Craig and breadwinners are AWESOME! Well, if they don't get to DUMB then I'll still watch them.

4 Cancelling Invader Zim

It really appealed to the older audiences, but now there's really nothing to hook their tween and teen viewers, or the kids who liked to break dolls and action figures rather than play with them. They should bring it back and do it right, it'll catch attention and get them more ratings then maybe they can go from there.

Zim won't ever come back. Jhonen Vasquez is the final decision maker. He refused to work with Nick because after the show was cancelled they still sold merchandise. It took him until 2014 to even work in television again.

It's not Nick's fault, they've been trying to keep the show alive with a comic book series, it's a bunch of the bad kind of overprotective moms who got the show cancelled!

My life ended when I found that no plot was resolved and no improvements with the ship or anything had been concluded... My childhood favorite channel is dead to me.

5 Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy and Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by Eric Robles for Nickelodeon. It is based on Fanboy, an animated short created by Robles for Nicktoons and Frederator Studios, which was broadcast August 14, 2009 to July 12, 2014 on Random! Cartoons. The series was first ...read more.

One of the earlier shows became a Facist of cartoons (meanwhile, CN got took over by the Nazi Reboots) the two shows took over to continue it's legacy. But unfortunately the two live for over almost 3 years before they killed by Loud House. I'm really glad those shows we're gone and the Nicktoon era returns happily with new Arnold movie last November and Spongebob brought it's health back. But this show was not only the worst cartoon in Nick but the whole cartoon history.

All they did was take Season 6 SpongeBob and Patrick, turn the characters into humans, make them even more annoying, and turn the animation into CGI. How disappointing is THAT!?

They chose this over Adventure Time? This? Out of all things, this? Why this Nick? What was so special about this?

This show is not funny at all! The only likeable characters are Kyle, Boog, and Lenny. Everybody else is unlikeable.

6 No More Reruns of 90s Nick Except for Teen Nick

Instead of playing their bad sitcoms all day long, why don't they just dedicate this channel to all the good shows they made? They never show My Life as a Teenage Robot, Jimmy Neutron, Chalkzone, or Danny Phantom. As for shows like the Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, and CatDog, we only get to watch them at 1-4 in the morning! WHY?!

Shows that originally aired in 90s and 2000-2004 ended in different 3 ways by either ending like they should have like Rugrats, usually with a decent amount of marketing involved, they ended with a very anti-climatic ending like Danny Phantom, or they had many loose ends and ended on a bad note like My Life as a Teenage Robot, with the latter 2 show endings having odd a crappy airing times and days with little marketing.

That's why we need a fountain of youth so no more complaints about reruns 90s Nick.
Nickelodeon its for kids - fountain of youth 4-12 years of age "We love Nickelodeon"

Oh shut up blinded with nostalgia. I watched Nickelodeon in the 90s but I don't moan about no 90s shows and its all different to 90s.

7 They Can't Make Good Shows Anymore

It might sound like a stupid idea but...why can't nickelodeon and NETFLIX work together on something? (Nickelodeon already worked with other companies, I think sony music,for making music for the shows on nick? Maybe they can do something together? ) I don't know, I might sound stupid..,

Drake and Josh is a very good show, so was iCarly, and also SpongeBob SquarePants the old episodes were the best, but the new movie is 2015 is better than the new episodes.

I understand that they can't make anymore good shows, but they did make two good shows recently, Winx Club & Every Witch Way.

Gosh, I just already done watching T.V. now. It's because everything is ruined in the 2015s. Nick is running out of Ideas for the shows

8 Cartoon Network is Better

Cartoon Network is a gold mine. It has Gumball, Regular Show, Adventure Time, Looney Toons, Steven Universe, Tom and Jerry, the old Powerpuff girls, and oh so much more. And what do you have, Nick? Fanboy and Chum Chum?

They always understand me, they always keep making better shows every time like "we bare bears", I'm right now and I have a Jake hat and still watch it. Cartoon net work is kinda getting a little weird though, they are starting to put gay relations in them.

SpongeBob stinks now, he's just a spoiled child and stuck loving his dead end job with a greedy boss who drove a rival to suicide attempt and would sell him for a penny!

Seriously, this shouldn't be on here. You can't compare the two nowadays (This is in 2016, FYI), since CN is going up in quality with some shows and Nick is about to hit rock bottom. It's a little depressing, to be honest.

9 Disney Channel Is Better

Disney Channel may also have mostly brainwashed girly tween sitcoms, but it at least has decent modern cartoons like Gravity Falls and vintage Mickey Mouse cartoons. Likewise, Disney Channel sometimes plays classic Disney and Pixar movies like Toy Story and Lion King. The only modern Nickelodeon shows that play other than the brainwashed girly tween sitcoms are cartoons with toilet and fart jokes like Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners.

To whoever said that Disney Channel was better than Nickelodeon until Every Witch Way aired, please tell me you love some other Disney Channel series such as Gravity Falls. Sadly, Every Witch Way was cancelled (I mean the whole franchise)! Nickelodeon has sitcoms that are even more brainwashed girly tween sitcoms than Disney Channel. Anonygirl and cartoonfan101 were both very right on their comments. Disney is nowadays a hit-or-miss. Nickelodeon is mostly a big time miss.

I agree even though Disney has many bad shows like girl meets world, good luck Charlie and love and massive it has one good show: Gravity falls. No matter how bad Disney is it'll still be better than nick! At least Disney shows and movies don't have butt and Fart jokes

That's right Disney Channel is better, well at least until Every Witch Way aired, but once that gets canceled, Nickelodeon will be gone from the channels & kids will no longer have a good life.

10 It has stupid shows

The fact that Wizards of Wavrly Place is magical must be the main reason why so many people in the universe love Wizards of Waverly Place. Not just that, but Disney Channel is very slightly better than Nickelodeon, and I hate Disney Channel a lot.

Harvey Beaks, Loud House and SpongeBob season 10 tried to restore the creativity but only SpongeBob and Loud House succeeded in that. Harvey Beaks got screwed by Nick's corporate pinheads.

I kind of hate nick

The Contenders
11 Continuing to Air Dora the Explorer and Not Blue's Clues

I hate Dora and Love Blue's Clues. Why do Nick cancel Blue's Clues and keep Dora airing?! Because Blue's Clues is a show that have colorful floppy ear puppies as the characters and only 1 human?

I used to love blues clues and hated Dora when I was little. Why. Just... why did they have to cancel it.

This is so true! Blue's Clues was infinity times better than Dora!

Blue' s Clues was our childhood show. I always watched it until it stopped airing.

12 Disney XD Is Better

Disney is WAY better than Nickelodeon, it has Gravity Falls, Wander Over Yonder, and Star vs the Forces of Evil, and Nick has stupid shows like Sanjay and Craig, new SpongeBob, and Breadwinners!

Disney is sooo much better. The only good show on Nick is TMNT, but Disney has Gravity Falls, and they are currently airing Doctor Who!

I certainly think Disney has it's problems, But I would say it's better than Nick today.

Again, at least it doesn't air one show for 10 hours a day.

13 Picking Up the Fred TV Show

Lest we forget that part where Fred's mother forces Fred Figglehorn to go to camp like a very short-tempered toddler, and Fred acts the same age. Please cancel SpongeBob Squarepants so you can go defunct, Nickelodeon. >:(

I hate his voice, most stupid, absurd, obnoxious, annoying, lame thing ever.

Why does Fred: The Show exist? It stinks. Only a dumb person would like it.

Fred's annoying and squeaky voice hurts my ears, it makes me wish I was deaf. Fred Figglehorn? More like Dead Figglehorn.

14 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress. She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. ...read more.

Why is Ari on this list?!?! There's nothing wrong with her. It's Cat that's the problem; and that gave Ariana at first a bad impression. I'm only cringing at everyone's hate for her. And now we have this stupid terrorist bombing that occurred at one of her concerts which made matters and her reputation even worse so thanks for that. Her music's actually pretty great for what this crappy modern generation of music has to offer. But that's just my opinion. And hey. Even if Cat IS considered unfunny and bad (which I believe as well), at least so doesn't come close to the infamous Hannah Montana. Demon destroyer of Disney!

Why does Ariana Grande get so much hate? She's allot more popular and successful than many people. I haven't even heard real bad things about her, seems like people only make her seem bad since they provide no evidence.

Want proof that the "Nickelodeon Curse" exists? AniMat stated that the "Disney Channel Curse" exists, but I've seen Nickelodeon turn Ariana Grande, Big Time Rush, Nat Wolff, Emma Roberts and Jamie Lynn Spears into racist monsters as well.

She once was funny. I liked Cat Valentine and I thought the character and the actor was funny. After she quit and insulted Dan Schneider, she began to pursuit a music career, that flopped

15 Getting Rid of Nickelodeon: Games and Sports for Kids

I want Nickelodeon Games and Sports back!

Why? This is bull why did they take it away?

They should air hockey basketball football paradise run and Lacrosse and soccer

16 Nick's Worldwide Day of Play

I can't believe this really exists, I mean come on Nickelodeon. You do realize that you're putting millions of children's lives in danger. What if it really rains, and the children start to play in the rain, and get hit by lightning. You don't know the rights and wrongs, but when a child goes outside in bad weather, they get hurt and the channel Nickelodeon should be held responsible for their injuries. If parents saw it raining and this message comes on, they'll make the decision, not Nickelodeon. At least Cartoon Network or Discovery Family doesn't air this message, if they did I would be extremely furious. It's time to take action, tell Nickelodeon that this needs to end now. If a child goes outside in the rain, you know who's responsible, the channel that airs the message. It's time to let Nickelodeon know that enough is enough, we are starting to get fed up with their message. Tell those at Nickelodeon to put an end to this and we could just forget about this whole thing, but no, ...more

While I do enjoy having a fun romp outside or riding my bike around the block, Nickelodeon shouldn't FORCE kids to go outside. It is their decision. Nick has no right to make them do something. When that happens, kids just change the channel to Cartoon Network (but not Disney, because it's almost as retarded). There are also some natural things that disable kids from going outside: They may be sick, have a physical injury, it may be raining, etc. etc..
Nickelodeon is really stupid. It does not realize that by having the Worldwide Day of Play, they are basically giving money to competition, as well as encouraging kids to stop watching Nick. Nickelodeon is almost as stupid (if not STUPIDER) than its targeted audience. Besides, they should encourage kids to read/write, not to go outside. Kids do that all the time anyway...it's their language arts skills that they need a boost on.

No offense, but the people who not only support this, but also call people that do not support it a fat, lazy couch potato are stupid. Not everyone who dislikes this is fat, lazy couch potato (only some are). I think it's better if Nick encourages kids to do more educational activities like reading and math. Usually I would respect others' opinions, but it's hard when people who disagree with me disrespect my opinions by calling me (and others who agree with me) a lazy, fat couch potato for not supporting something.

Nice way to encourage kids to go outside, by blocking all Nickelodeon broadcasts for 3 straight hours. They don't know whether it's raining or a gunman is loose in the area. Besides, the kids who do witness the day of play screen will probably switch the channel to Cartoon Network or play on their Xbox until the parents kick them out.

17 Getting Rid of Saturday Night Nickelodeon (A.K.A. Snick)

Saturday Night Nickelodeon was the best block in the whole wide world. Cartoon Network even had THEIR answer to SNICK, and that was Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, except that C.C.F. aired on Fridays, rather than Saturdays.

18 The Shows Have Gotten So Stupid

Things started to turn around in 2005. El Tigre and Mr. Meaty primered around that time (were ok) and CatDog was the final Nicktoon from the 90s to be phased out at the time. Spongebob began to lose it's touch in 2007 (Especially Patrick). 2007 was also the year Catscratch and Danny Phantom got cancelled. 2008 was when the network started going downhill with Mighty B and Tak (NOT the video game but the T.V. show). In 2009 Nick saw the consequence of sending Adventure Time off to Cartoon Network in favor of Fanboy and Chum Chum. This show allowed them to adapt to making bad, crappy T.V. shows like Planet Sheen, Sanjay & Craig, Rabbids Invasion, Modern FOP, Modern Spongebob (Season 5 to 1st half of Season 9), and Breadwinners. What Happened?

Seriously, that new Every Witch Way show is TERRIBLE! The acting is bad, the jokes are lame, the editing is terrible, and the story is super cliche! It's like a bad Wizards of Waverly place remake.

First nick gave us fairly odd parents and sponge bob (only nick cartoons I like) and now they have Sanjay and craig and breadwinners they are the worst shows ever please give us good shows nick!

This is what happened to Nickelodeon, but one smart show popped out on New Year's Day in 2014, Every Witch Way, that one is different from the other shows in format & plot, the acting is also great.

19 The Jetix Revival will be better

They took Jetix and replaced it with Disney! Why? Jetix had great shows like monster buster club. And then Disney owns star wars!?! Now I really HATE this channel. Bring back jetix!

They took jetix and replaced it with Disney! Why? Jetix had great shows like monster buster club. And now they own star wars. Now I really HATE this channel bring back jetix

They took jetix and replaced it with Disney! Why? Jetix had so many good and memorable T.V. show like monster buster club

20 Cancelling the Good Shows
21 Making TV Shows out of Popular Movies

They made kung fu panda legends of awesomeness, monsters vs aliens the animated series, dreamworks dragons riders of berk, fred the show. What's next, a show out of smosh trying to be funny and going on pointless adventures, home the animated series?

That's a good thing

22 Dora the Explorer

This should be top 1! Terrible graphics, aimed at little kids (who actually would dislike this show), unoriginal soundtrack, voice acting is cringeworthy...

Dora the Explorer: Hi, I'm Dora, and we're going to ask stupid questions!

I am so happy that it's going to be over this year.

I hate Dora the Explorer!

23 The revival of UPN Kids will be better

I hope this is true.

24 Nickelodeon Abuses Everyone On Its Shows

If Nickelodeon force younger kids, toddlers and babies to be on Nickelodeon just like Toddlers and Tiaras, that could have been worse!

Someone needs to call a child protective services and arrest Nickelodeon

They use the actors like monkeys by trying hard to be funny but failed

25 Fox Kids was better
