Top Ten Reasons Why Nickelodeon Has Gone Down the Drain

Most of us remember Nickelodeon as the number 1 network for kids, but this network has gone through numerous changes. It's is one of the worst networks on television now. I never thought that Nickelodeon would sink that low. Reminds me of the Titanic.
The Top Ten
1 Keeps making commercials with a bunch of weird stuff

In my personal opinion, I think Nickelodeon is the most cringiest and most annoying channel ever in regards to adults trying to be "young" and "hip" and "cool" (they always use that term) and then these cringy little kids doing fortine dances and you guessed it...DABBING! Seriously! When are these cringey people going to get that dabbing was already freaking DEAD! I saw this thing called Nickelodeon Cringe and a bunch of these shows were using lame jokes and then adding "daaaaannnng" and I immediately got annoyed. But this was the worst of all! These shows like Harvey Breaks, Sanjay and Craig and SpongeBob were doing Whip and the Nae Nae, OMIGOD ! I was so utterly disgusted, I cringed so BAD! The cray cray, the flip and they all sounded so freaking annoying! UGH! I cannot even with this channel anymore! And if it's not that it's a bunch of cringy kids from sitcoms trying to be cool, but their actually not.

Why does nick try to appeal to kids with cringy memes?!

2 It's all about money

Mr. Krabs must've brainwashed the executives at Nick into thinking it was all about money rather than the quality of their shows. Nick thinks that they can make a show about anything and still get lot's of money. I am very surprised that Nick is even making money with the they air nowadays.

We got to have... Money

Mr.Krabs has to be the one to blame.

3 None of the new shows are original

Obviously Nick is running out of ideas, it's always recycling the same material over and over again. Why does it always have to be about two friends who make episodes and love being cringy? It's annoying!

Nick really thinks they're being creative, but they use the same concept over and over again. It's usually about two buddies who go on adventures. Nickelodeon acts as if that concept is new to them. Call us when you actually get something creative, Nick!

4 Keep making bad shows

Please don't judge me when I say this, but I only have three favorite Nick shows and those are SpongeBob, Victorious and ICarly with these various characters:
1. SpongeBob Favorites:
*Squidward
*SpongeBob
*Sandy
*Pearl
2. Victorious
*Tori
*Cat
*Jade
*Andre
*Beck
*Trina
*Robbie
3. ICarly
*Carly
*Sam
*Spencer
*Freddie
*Gibby
Every other Nick show I did not add on here, I do not like, except for Lip Sync Battle Shorties The Holiday Special. But other than that, I hate Nick except for those 3 shows.

I agree 100% with that. They make terrible shows. In my personal opinion, I think ICarly and Victorious are the best sitcoms ever, right until they decided to come up with Sam & Cat, the worst show that does nothing great except teaching people about laziness, irresponsibility, being immature, child abandonment, theft, fighting, lying, etc. I think ALVIIIINNN! And The Chipmunks is another terrible show, and also Game Shakers, The Thundermans, and Lip Sync Battle Shorties, except for the Christmas one. Another reason why Nickelodeon is hated is because Jojo Siwa is in it, to help out with all the cringy kids and adults, ugghhh...

Scratch that. I actually dislike Victorious now. It sucks.

Too many pandering kids shows

5 Nick rips off or copies other shows

Ever since Nick rejected it and CN picked it up, Adventure Time is very popular, and this is what got me mad with Nick. They rejected Adventure Time, then when the show became a big hit, they tried to copy it. Ever heard of Sanjay and Craig? This not the first time Nick has done this. Nick has also copied other shows too.

For instance, Welcome to the Wayne is a Gravity Falls ripoff (Nick thought it'd be clever to wait until a while after Gravity Falls was cancelled, but people picked up on it fast).

Then again pbs kids ripped off danger force with hero elementary

6 Too many butt jokes and toilet humor

For some reason Nick thinks butt jokes and toilet humor are still funny. They should try to be like the Animaniacs and use some adult jokes but come up with something different throughout each episode.

Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners, 2 perfect examples of toilet and butt humor shows.

This makes me want to watch TTG I swear

7 They reject the good cartoons

Nickelodeon rejected Adventure Time and the Modifyers for Fanboy and Chum Chum and Breadwinners. Really Nick? If you're going to reject the good shows at least create your own instead of picking from the internet.

I remember reading an article centering on the fact that Harvey Beaks doesn't get that much screentime. Even though Harvey Beaks is considered a good show, Nickelodeon refuses to air it and instead airs indecent shows

Adventure time, Harvey Beaks are the two most well known examples.

8 Post-Movie Spongebob

I have a SpongeBob doll. Every time I see him or use him, I tell him this: "I love SpongeBob before (and including) the movie. But sorry buddy, you're show's gone to hell."

Should be at number 3.

The episodes have been getting better though. The original creators came back! 😁

9 Never cancels the bad shows

You had to cancel the good shows like catscratch, my life as a teenage robot, and Danny Phantom, did you? Well congratulations! You are going to get less viewers!

Why haven't they cancelled stupid shows like ALVIINNN! And the Chipmunks, Sam & Cat, Game Shakers, The Thundermans and other crappy shows?

They never cancelled the crappy modern nickelodeon shows

Yeah. Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners have really bad ratings, but there still on air. SERIOUSLY NICKELODEON? What have you become?

10 Not every Dreamworks movie needs a series

Just like how Cartoon Network tries to cash in on the Lego franchise, Nickelodeon tries to cash in on the Dreamworks franchise. They took the penguins from the Madagascar movies and gave them their own series. Then they tried to do the same with Kung Fu Panda and Monsters vs. Aliens. Try to be a little more original, Nick.

Lol but you're right. Lol for the title: Not every Dreamworks movie needs a series.

Hey at least lego ninjago on CN is better than modern Nickelodeon.

The Contenders
11 Cancelled the Nickelodeon magazine

This was also a cause for Nick's demise. Nickelodeon magazine was full of humor and comics. I would order a new magazine every time monthly. But the dumbasses at Nick decided to cancel the magazine.

Spoiler alert:it''s back!

12 They aired Breadwinners

Good god I haven't even attempted to watch the show and I already know how awful it is.

Gross. 'enough said.

13 They use toilet humour
14 Never listens to the critics
15 No more slime

Two things:
1. No more splat logo
2. No more Slime Time Live

Worst thing to happen to nick

No more splat logo.. bring it back
RIP OLD NICK LOGO
-1990~2009- :'(

16 They aired Sanjay and Craig

I hate this show so much it even makes me want to watch teen titans go.

I Hate These Two! Cancel It!

Teen Titans GO is worse

17 Changed the logo in 2009
18 Cancelling Icarly and Victorious for Sam and Cat

As much as I dislike Victorious now these days, I have to say that it was literally the last good show/ live action sitcom on Nickelodeon, although a lot of people hate that show. I get it. Nickelodeon is no longer how it used to be. Nickelodeon is supposed to be a place where kids can be kids and have fun. NO. It went from that to memes. Nickelodeon these days try way too hard to be hip, cool and trendy, that it seriously freaking ANNOYS me. Even Victorious wasn't even like that. Sure it had cliché stereotypes and drama. But still. Shows nowadays are always trying to relate to memes and doing trends like dabbing. That was supposed to be dead. But till today people are still dabbing. What's wrong with you, Nick?

That stupid cringe show! Cat turned from a talented, funny nice and cute character with great personality to a wannabe, idiot and super immature person that now her high voice is becoming annoying in this one.
Sam has turned from a funny, lovable, relatable and tough character to a boring, annoying lazy babysitter who cares less about babysitting and only cares about money while she leaves all the babysitting to Cat.
The show teaches kids bad morals, just like two other terrible TV shows that are cartoons, and it encourages people to do stuff like:
Bullying
Lying
Child abandonment
Being irresponsible
Theft
Being immature
Being a jerk
Taking advantage of others
Fighting
Breaking rules
Kidnapping
Not learning from your mistakes
One reason why I officially am getting sick of Nickelodeon.

Sam and Cat is byfar the worst Nickelodeon sitcom ever, I hate the characters there except for Nona. They're also extremely annoying and cringey

Ariana Grande is one of the most unfairly overrated celebrities of all time for being a dainty racist that humps Nat Wolff's leg. >:(

19 They show live-action shows

Drake & Josh is Dan Schneider's best show, hands down. Besides that he also made other great shows, All That, Kenan & Kel, ICarly and Zoey 101

They make way too many live action shows in my opinion. At least Dan Schneider hasn’t been working there in a few years so we don’t have to put up with his live action sitcoms.

Drake and Josh and Ned's Declassified were good, but the other live-action shows except for Every Witch Way and some of Victorious are awful, no plot, no good morals, annoying laugh tracks and too much innuendo, Drake and Josh had laugh tracks, but it was a funny show, which was what made it good.

20 They have many celeb cameos on shows but most of them suck
21 Bad Schedule

The schedule on Nickelodeon is really bad. They show Spongbob for like six hours a day and they only show some shows for like a half hour.

22 They made a spin-off of Henry Danger called Danger Force and a cartoon version of the original show called The Adventures of Kid Danger

I wonder why the franchise became popular enough for them to want to make two spin-offs.

23 Nothing but bad sitcoms

Henry Danger, Thundermans, Danger Force, Game Shakers are some of the series that come to mind when I think of bad live action shows. They used to make good shows like Drake and Josh and iCarly.

Really Nick? Henry Danger? That's the best you could come up with? Nick's sitcoms today are all about ghost, superpowers, web shows, etc. They even try to add morals to their programs and another thing that pisses me off is that stupid ass laugh track. They play the laugh track every 15-30 seconds.

The last good one was iCarly. After that ended, none of the sitcoms were worth watching. I'm just glad they cancelled that awful show "Victorious" not too long after.

Drake & Josh, Victorious and ICarly were awesome. Henry Danger, Game Shakers, Sam & Cat and the new All That are HORRIBLE.

24 Thinks the bad shows are the most popular

HELLO? Open your eyes and look at the ratings! They're horrible!
NICK: Ok everybody, it's Sitcom O' Clock! Now we're going to show episodes of Nicky Ricky dicky dawn, game shakers, and henry Sanger! Enjoy! We know you love sitcoms kids!
ME: Oh NO.. I dislike all of them! *shudders* *put one of nick picks DVD in Xbox 360* Yeah, this is more like it! I'll watch the old cartoons instead! They're much better! ☆☆NOSTALGIA BLAST! ☆☆

25 Replaced Invader Zim with Breadwinners
