Most Overrated Shows On Nickelodeon

Basically SpongeBob will become Number 1 without a doubt but might as well look at some other opinions.

The Top Ten

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

I love the first five seasons, they are classics. The 6th season has some okay episodes. Seasons 7-10 are garbage. I still enjoy the first five seasons. Despite that, I consider this show to be a little bit overrated.

This Show Actually Isn't Overrated, Because Everyone Is Hating On This Show Because Of The New Episodes. Same Thing With SpongeBob SquarePants.

Yeah I know. When people say it's underrated, it's not. It's overrated by millions of fans.

I tried to watch this a few times. Maybe I was too old to enjoy it, but this is one of the worst Nick shows and the reason I gave up on the channel. - Electricbassguy

2 Doug Doug Doug is an American animated sitcom created by Jim Jinkins. The show focuses on the early adolescent life of its title character, Douglas "Doug" Funnie, who experiences common predicaments while attending school in his new hometown of Bluffington. Doug narrates each story in his journal, and the show more.

Underrated. I've seen a ton of people say it's just a blander version of Hey Arnold. While I admit I prefer Hey Arnold, Doug is still a solid show. - KalloFox34

Yeah, because the Disney reboot is overhated.

Doug is actually underrated, not overrated, it should be taken off the list. - nelsonerico6

Doug's not even good, it's only popular because people remember it.

3 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese more.

Amazing show, but not as good as people make it out to be. - KalloFox34

Overrated in my opinion. Watched it, and it was nothing special. Everyone keeps talking about it, it's not underrated.

Not overrated at all, but very underrated, it was such a masterpiece. - nelsonerico6

Don't get me wrong. I liked Avatar, but it's not the insanely amazing wonderful flawless thing people make it out to be. it's good, just not...THAT good.

4 Ren and Stimpy Ren and Stimpy The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. more.

The first five seasons were a LOT better. It's been improving a lot lately, though. - KalloFox34

One of the most overrated nickelodeon shows or nicktoons and one of the worst part of the modern spongebob is how the characters are so annoying and one dimensional

The old SpongeBob was the best, and the movie was awesome too. But the new ones stink. - Alpha101

Actually, the older ones are better. - Connor360

6 Zoey 101 Zoey 101 Zoey 101 is an American teen drama television series which originally aired on Nickelodeon from January 9, 2005 until May 2, 2008. It focuses on the lives of teenager Zoey Brooks (Jamie Lynn Spears), her brother (Paul Butcher), and her friends as they attend Pacific Coast Academy (PCA), a fictional more.

Overrated by Drake & Josh, This show had no canned laughter, and it was still funny, and it had a better storyline.

7 Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! is an American animated television series created by Craig Bartlett that aired on Nickelodeon from October 7, 1996 to June 8, 2004. The show centers on a fourth grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents in an inner-city boarding house.

It's beyond overrated (like every 90s Nicktoon). The fans are beyond rabid, and you're pretty much crucified for simply saying you don't care for the show. People praise HA too much and quite honestly, it's very boring. I disliked it as a kid, and rewatching it as an adult, I still don't like it. Hey Arnold isn't the best show ever, get over it.

Hey Arnold! wasn't overrated, it's just that a lot of people like it. It's my favorite show, and that's not why I'm saying it's not really overrated. And no offense to any Rugrats fans, but that show is pretty overrated. If you think Hey Arnold! is overrated, you obviously haven't heard of Rugrats!

Overrated? OVERRATED!?

8 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.

She can't sing anymore because of Ariana Grande, and this show lacks plot.

Great and underrated show. - KalloFox34

Say what you want, but this is a good show. - Connor360

This is not appropriate for kids.

The Contenders

11 Cat Dog

More underrated than overrated. - KalloFox34

12 Rugrats Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

Rugrats was one of the best shows on Nick. - Connor360

13 Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

Wait this was a show - Batmaniscole

14 Angry Beavers

One of my favorite shows. Not overrated at all, rather underrated.

The series follows the lives of two teenage boys with opposite personalities, Drake Parker (Drake Bell) and Josh Nichols (Josh Peck), who become stepbrothers. Both actors previously appeared in The Amanda Show along more.

This was the best sitcom Nick has made. - Connor360

It would have been if they removed the laughter & cheers, those sounds should be left to a visible audience.

The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.


I think someone put it on here because Nickelodeon was the first one to receive the pilot of the show, but declined it. The pilot then went to Cartoon Network, who accepted it. - EpicWingman

Thank you Nick for cancelling this show. - Connor360

It was taken of because the charecter cat (Ariana Grande) was a charecter that lacks goodness - Batmaniscole

It was taken off because Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy were having a feud, and because the latter was posting inappropriate pictures of herself online. - KalloFox34

19 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

Truthfully, this show gets FAR too much praise for being mistreated and overlooked, yet is also occasionally slandered by critics for being a so-called "cheap and tasteless ripoff of Ren & Stimpy". However, it is still an eternal classic in my opinion. I wish more people recognized it as the original and VASTLY superior version of SpongeBob. - xandermartin98

Just because this show borrows elements from R&S does not mean that it was actually intended as a blatant and deliberate rip-off. Seriously, think about it for a second, do some research and you'll understand. - xandermartin98

21 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 and it became so popular, just for money, it's way too overrated. - nelsonerico6

Underrated if anything. - KalloFox34
