Happy Birthday, Nick at Nite

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 21st 2005 2:41PM

Kate and AllieNick at Nite has given us yet another reason to rev up our Tivos and VCRs.

It turns 20 on July 1, and all this week they are celebrating by showing episodes of shows that they've had on the schedule over the years. Some of the shows:

  • Kate and Allie (damn, I wish this show was on DVD)
  • Moonlighting
  • Who's The Boss
  • Family Ties
  • Night Court
  • Dragnet
  • Alfred Hitchcock Presents
  • Growing Pains
  • Get Smart

Great shows all, but it illustrates a point: why aren't these shows on the network right now? As Noel Holston says in the Detroit News/Newsday piece below, "...while Nick at Nite - and TV Land, for that matter - have never been more successful, it's nostalgia isn't what it used to be."

Try MeTV and RTV. I have totally stopped watching Nick. These channels show Mary Tyler Moore, the Partridge Family, Maude, Hazel, and a bunch of old favs. I used to love Nick and TVLand, but they have changed.
