Top 10 Worst Things About Nickelodeon

Just things we hate about this channel since its changed a lot.

The Top Ten

1 Bad Writers
2 Bad Shows

That's why Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network suck nowadays.

I partially agree.The only shows I consider bad are the telenovelas

3 Shows Dragging On Too Long

Don't hate me for this, but I'm kinda happy that they cancelled shows like Jimmy Neutron, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Danny Phantom. Why? Because they all ended at just the right time. SpongeBob and the Fairly Oddparents were awesome for the first 3 or 4 seasons, just like those shows, but because they were dragged on too long, they suck. Danny Phantom is my favorite Nicktoon, and I was sad when it was cancelled. But now, seeing what Nickelodeon has become, if that show was dragged on like SpongeBob, it would probably suck too. Shows can only go on for so long before the writers run out of ideas and they start using tons of filler, recycle plots, and add new and unnecessary characters. They really should cancel the Fairly Oddparents and SpongeBob. - BeanBag343

They should cancel The Fairly OddParents, but the president of Nickelodeon confirmed that they can't cancel SpongeBob because if they do, they will go bankruptcy - GumballWatterson

5 Cruddy TV Shows

Most of the shows are cruddy

Yes. Don't even get me started on Breadwinners or Sanjay & Craig! - anonygirl

Pretty much everything nowadays is cruddy.

One day two shows (Breadwinners and Sanjay & Craig) teamed up to lose viewers of Nick and dictate but the hero Loud House killed them and Nick went happily live with the new Arnold Jungle Movie.

Note: I wonder if CN and Disney went back to normal?

9 Firing the Original President

Now We Have an Iranian as President. - kcianciulli

10 Nick running out of ideas

The Loud House is now Nickelodeon's last good ideas until SpongeBob ends sometime in the future.

Every Witch Way is Nick's last good ideas. - nelsonerico6

The Newcomers

? Trying to be funny with unfunny/dead memes

I just saw a Nickelodeon ad with the “JOHN CENA” meme in it.

It’s 2018, people. - Lunala

The Contenders

It sucked since 2004, but it's getting better, thanks to Stephen Hillenburg coming back, the show is getting fresh again.

17 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

Too much potty humor with the butt jokes.

18 Nick caring about money instead of children

That's what happened to Nickelodeon until Every Witch Way, but when that show is gone, Nickelodeon will disappear.

19 Nick hiring unfunny, untalented writers

It's true that many shows have bad writers that have been hired for them, Since the end of the 90's, The cancellation of the first shows began, then SpongeBob came, but after season 4, during their first movie, Steven Hillenburg, the original writer, retired and Nick hired bad writers with very little ideas, then Nickelodeon really started to go down, then they hired writers for House of Anubis, which was a great show, but the soap opera genre made the show a hit and miss, after that show, nothing else good until Every Witch Way, the fortunately telenovela genre along with the teen sitcom genre (like many modern shows) was a success for all ages and had a great plot, the writing was nice and it's the first children and adult show on Nick to be adapted from a show from another location called Grachi, a Latin American telenovela, Every Witch Way is considered to be Nick's last good show and after it, Nick will resume it's downhill path and be dead forever, Nick, thanks for finally ...more

20 Actors can't act

I love every witch way

Only the actors of Every Witch Way can act since the cancellation of House of Anubis, it is a spinoff of Latam fantasy show Grachi. - nelsonerico6

21 Nick ruined SpongeBob

It was so good. Once. - Garythesnail

22 Nick not cancelling SpongeBob

Cancelling SpongeBob would lead to the death of Nickelodeon and the channel would be gone, keep SpongeBob and just start rerunning the old episodes instead of the new ones. - nelsonerico6

They can't do it because if they do, Nickelodeon will be doomed, but they should air frequently the 1999-2006 episodes and rarely air the Seasons 6-9 (First Half only) episodes, with exception of Sand Castles on the Sand - GumballWatterson

Actually, cancelling SpongeBob would lead to the death of Nickelodeon and the channel would be gone, Keep SpongeBob and rehire Steven Hillenburg back and then the show will be good again like it used to be and even better.

23 Cancelling Ren and Stimpy

I honestly think that was a great idea because of how freaky Ren and Stimpy was sometimes. And please don't get angry at me for having a different opinion than yours. I'll respect your opinion as long as you respect mine.

Ren and Stimpy was disgusting in my opinion. And besides, if they never cancel a show, the episodes will start going stale like they did on shows like SpongeBob, Arthur, and the Simpsons. - anonygirl

24 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. On July 27, 2017, Nickelodeon released a statement to J-14, stating that more.

Stupid ripoff of The Incredibles and Lab Rats.

That little girl is ugly

25 Cancelling Rocko's Modern Life AND Failing To Put It On Demand

What in the world is wrong with them? God, I hate Viacom. They've ruined SpongeBob as well, haven't they? - xandermartin98

28 Nick airing teen sitcoms for children

Teen sitcoms are ok, as long as they're clean ones with a good plot, what you must be thinking about are bad ones.

29 SpongeBob winning more kids choice awards than any other Nicktoon

And the majority came from the sucky period!

30 "Angel" Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler as an angel? He's the Antichrist!

Santos as an angel? He's the Antichrist!

31 Renewing Breadwinners For A Second Season

The second season was (somehow) worse than the 1st season!

32 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.

If you want violence, go watch South Park or Happy Tree Friends. - kcianciulli

33 Cancelling Icarly and Victorious for Sam and Cat
34 Nick not being concerned about what kids watch like they used to
35 Hiring Nick Cannon As a CEO
36 Cancelling Invader Zim

Invader Zim was really Nickelodeon's most successful show until Rugrats & SpongeBob SquarePants (first 4 season), cancelling it was one of the dumbest moves, it had one of the biggest Nick fanbases of all time.

37 Cancelling Rugrats

Get this off the list, they ran out of ideas.

38 Cancelling Hey Arnold!

These days, they won't even air old repeats of the adventures of old football head, except on The '90s Are All That.

Lamest show after iCarly and Victorious (ok plot but ruined by laugh track and silly acting).


41 Inappropriate Kids Shows
42 Dan Schneider
43 Cancelling CatDog
44 Telenovelas On Nickelodeon

Honestly,i think "Every witch way","Tahlia in the kitchen",and 'WITS academy" stink.I mean why would Nick put telenovelas on nick and we all know that telenovelas are the worst.

45 Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket is an American animated television series created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan for Nickelodeon.

Wow Nick I thought you couldn't make anything worse than Breadwinners. I was wrong. - Anonymousxcxc

46 Repetitive Episodes

In single story based episodes like SpongeBob SquarePants. Nickelodeon plays episodes mostly from season 6-8(which sucked)randomly,i cannot watch a day without tears or keep bikini bottom beautiful anymore.

A good show compared to the other crappy shows Nick has, and it was a spin off of Every Witch Way, but it got cancelled after one season, Nick is so messed up.
