Get Your 90's On

So Teen Nick started rerunning 90's programming Monday and people are fucking digging it. Doug, Ren and Stimpy, Double Dare, who doesn't love that shit?

From The Hollywood Reporter:
As of Tuesday morning, Doug has been the No. 1 Google trend, and Kenan & Kel and Teen Nick were trending on Twitter.

In announcing the decision to rebroadcast the shows, Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick, said earlier: "At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11. It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back.”

Going forward, the network will air '90s reruns from 12 a.m. EST to 4 a.m. ET from Monday to Sunday in a block called "The 90s Are All That." Shows include Doug, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, Clarissa Explains it All, Double Dare, The Ren & Stimpy Show and Salute Your Shorts.

Smart move Nickelodeon. Salute your shorts, Doug, all those shows are way better than whatever bullshit is on Nick these days. And Nick at Nite only shows shit from like the 1960's. Give us 20 something losers some stupid shit to watch late night and we are putty in your hands. And advertisers love us because we blow our money on anything that looks cool.

This just goes with what I've been thinking about a lot lately. The 90's were the tits compared to this post-2000 bullshit. The TV, the music, it was just a great time to be around. No Lady Gaga, no Justin Beiber, and no Miley Cyrus. Winner: Doug.
