Most Overrated Nick Jr. Shows

Eraser
Here are the top ten most overrated Nick Jr shows. A few of these shows are actually good (as being overrated isn't a bad thing sometimes), but all the others shows are so terrible, and get SO MUCH admiration and adoration and merchandise when they don't deserve it.

The channel LOVES these shows to death and gives them all the excess airtime, awards, games, and videos that could be given to great (ok but not all these shows are great) and underrated shows: Hey Duggee, Miffy, Mia and Me, Max and Ruby, Peter Rabbit, Backyardigans, Wonder Pets, Blue's Clues, Yo Gabba Gabba, Teletubbies, Digby Dragon, Mike the Knight, Julius Jr, Lalaloopsy, Go Diego Go, Fresh Beat Band of Spies, Dino Dan, Wallykazam, Ben and Holly, and Zack and Quack.

Executives at Nick Jr, please look at this list. Thank you.

The Top Ten

1 Paw Patrol Paw Patrol PAW Patrol is an Canadian animated television series created by Keith Chapman. It is produced by Spin Master Entertainment with animation provided by Guru Studio. In Canada, the series is primarily broadcast on TVOKids, which first ran previews of the show in August 2013. The series first aired on Nickelodeon ...read more.

Am I the only one who hates this show? - TwilightKitsune

Do I even need to describe it? This show gets way too much credit. IT DOESN'T TEACH KIDS ANYTHING, yet everyone loves it, and so does Nick Jr. They give it way too much airtime and they could give that airtime to their better shows. It also wins way too many awards and has way too many toys. Plus, it gets way too much promotion on the Nick Jr. website. I wish this stupid show would end already. I'm sick of seeing everywhere in the store and on T.V.. - Eraser

I love the show

2 Shimmer and Shine Shimmer and Shine Shimmer and Shine is an American-Canadian animated children's television series created by Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz. It airs on Nickelodeon in the United States and on Treehouse in Canada. The series premiered on August 24, 2015. The show was based on an unreleased pilot from September 2013. ...read more.

This show is okay, but it went downhill in the second season. This show was somehow an instant hit, and it gets way too many toys and way too much reruns. Plus, I hate how the people at Nick Jr. think that the first season and second season are two separate shows. They show different commercials for when they're showing different episodes of different seasons of S&S. I guess it's so people won't get confused when they see a commercial for 2D Shimmer and Shine, but get confused when they see 3D Shimmer and Shine - Eraser

No 2d shimmer and shine sucked

3 Bubble Guppies Bubble Guppies

This show ended like last year, but Nick Jr seems to think that its still relevant. They STILL sell the toys and they STILL treat it like royalty, and also give it reruns on the Nick Jr. block on Nickelodeon. Nick Jr, listen up, get out of your nostalgia and forget about this dumb and illogical show, it doesn't deserve to be relevant anymore. I guess you could give it reruns on your 24/7 channel, but remove your Bubble Guppies slots on the Nick Jr. block and give those slots to actually decent programs. - Eraser

They actually removed reruns of Team Umizoomi on Nickelodeon and aren't treating it like it's relevant anymore. However they kept reruns of Bubble Guppies and they're still acting like it's relevant. - Cartoonfan202

Eraser, they're not airing reruns of Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi out of nostalgia.
Nickelodeon is the highest rated channel for kids in all demographics, and they will legit do ANYTHING to maintain that title. Nickelodeon discovered that reruns of Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi got them decent ratings, so they kept them on the Nick Jr. block in order to maintain good ratings. - Cartoonfan202

4 Blaze and the Monster Machines Blaze and the Monster Machines

People give this show WAY too much credit. I get it teaches kids about STEM, but I feel like this show is only made to sell toys. Not only that, it has TOO many toys, and gets way too many reruns. The show itself isn't even that good anyway. The main character gets on my nerves due to being a HUGE Marty-Stu, and Crusher never gets to win anything. - Eraser

5 Rusty Rivets Rusty Rivets

This show isn't that bad compared to Blaze, Paw Patrol, and Shimmer and Shine season 2, and its actually good, but this show also gets way too much credit from Nick Jr. They seem to think it's their next big hit, but I never see any promotions for any new episodes. And its made by the company that made Paw Patrol and Little Charmers, two other overrated shows. Hmm. I wouldn't be surprised if tons of toys come out later this year. - Eraser

6 Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi is a cheap CGI animated series where a porn star named Milly, a black guy named Geo, and a Windows Vista computer named Bot go on weird adventures.

Same thing as Bubble Guppies. This ended like 2 or 3 years ago, but Nick Jr can't seem to get out of their nostalgia and they treat it like its still airing new episodes even though its not. It also gets a lot of airtime on the Nick Jr. block on Nickelodeon. OK Nick Jr, I guess you could give it reruns on your 24/7 channel, but stop treating it like its still relevant! Its not! No one cares about this show! - Eraser

7 Nella the Princess Knight Nella the Princess Knight

Same thing as Rusty Rivets, this show is actually good. It features strong role models, the main character is a biracial girl. However, this show also gets spammed by Nick Jr a lot. I mean I'm happy that this show is successful, but in the next couple of months or so, we're probably going to see Nella toys all over the store, defeating the purpose of the show. - Eraser

8 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

Ugh, I keep hearing rumors that this show is cancelled all the time when new episodes don't air for a while, but it ALWAYS comes back for new episodes. Whenever a new episode is announced, Nick Jr overhypes it way too much and makes it seem like the biggest T.V. event ever when really its just another episode of a B-cartoon. - Eraser

THE MEMES THAT SPAWNED FROM THIS - wrests

9 Mutt & Stuff Mutt & Stuff

This show is also good like SAS Season 1, Rusty Rivets, and Nella the Princess Knight, but I'm starting to lose interest in it due to the dumb plotlines and awful, awful humor. However, I do think that it has cute dogs and good messages for kids. The reason why its lower on the list is because Nick Jr doesn't really seem to care about it as much as they used to. I mean, they do make a lot of games based around this show and include it in their exclusive compilation videos, but Nick Jr possibly canceled it. Even if they did cancel it, it'll probably get the Team Umizoomi and Bubble Guppies treatment. - Eraser

10 Kuu Kuu Harajuku Kuu Kuu Harajuku

This show USED to be on Nickelodeon, but now Nick Jr is airing it on their channel and they're promoting it way too much! What does this show even teach kids? Nothing, absolutely nothing! It doesn't teach kids how to count or spell, it doesn't teach kids how to share, it doesn't teach kids anything! They also promote the episodes way too much and have the show grouped with the rest of the popular shows on the Nick Jr. website.

The Contenders

11 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer is an 2000 American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner.
12 Lazytown Lazytown
13 The Backyardigans The Backyardigans The Backyardigans is a Canadian–American CGI-animated musical TV series created by Janice Burgess, It is a co-production of animation studio Nelvana and Nickelodeon Animation Studios.
14 Lalaloopsy Lalaloopsy

This show is actually underrated. It didn't get excess airtime like Paw Patrol, and it got screwed by the network in it's 2nd season despite being treated very nicely in it's original run. - Cartoonfan202
