If you grew up learning French from Pierre Escargot, wishing for a blue best friend, craving a Good Burger, or have ever woken up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat because “The Frozen Ghost” had appeared in your dreams (to this day, still the scariest dream I’ve ever had…), then you’ll probably be as absurdly excited as I am to hear that TeenNick has recently launched a new block of your favorite old programming from classic Nickelodeon called The ’90s Are All That!
 
 
 
Speaking as (what I consider to be) a fairly normal 24-year-old with a DVR full of late-night Rugrats and Rocko’s Modern Life reruns, I can hardly contain my excitement about this. Starting last Monday night, the TeenNick channel began broadcasting a few of the classic Nick lover’s favorites (Clarissa Explains It All, All That, Doug, and Kenan and Kel) from Midnight-2am EST, Monday through Friday.
 
The reception:
Among viewers 18–34, the demo Teen Nick is targeting in late-night, The 90s attracted ratings roughly 850 percent higher than the channel’s previous time-period average in the midnight-to-2 a.m. block.According to New York Magazine
 
 
According to Keith Dawkins, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Nicktoons and TeenNick, more of the old favorites will be worked into the rotation with time, and the people at Nick are paying attention to fan feedback on facebook, twitter, and their website, so let them know what you want! As a matter of fact, this new (old?) programming is a result of millions of pleas from eager fans, so keep it up!
 
The line-up of shows that we have to look forward to includes:
 
Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
The Adventures of Pete & Pete
All That
The Amanda Show
Are You Afraid of the Dark?
