Nick at Nite moves further into the Nineties

NewsRadioRemember those halcyon days when Nick at Nite used to show TV classics like Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and I Love Lucy? Yeah, it's hard for me to remember those days, too. Ever since the advent of sister network TV Land, the powers that be at Nickelodeon have seen fit to put old favorites there and leave Nick at Nite for fans of TV's most recent past. Lately, it's been in Eighties mode, with shows like Cheers, The Cosby Show, and Full House in heavy rotation. But the Nineties aren't far behind, with Mad About You recently joining Nineties stalwarts Roseanne and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the lineup.

Now, according to this press release, Nick at Nite will be becoming very Nineties-oriented over the next year or so, with the additions of Home Improvement, Designing Women, A Different World, and Bob's favorite show, NewsRadio. What's next, Seinfeld?

Also, does this mean that the shows from the Eighties are going to be pushed to TV Land? If so, where will the older stuff go? The dusty confines of our memories aren't enough. I guess I'll have to stock up on the DVDs...

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 but it has changed.

Ah, nostalgia...it's catching up with us. Soon enough, we'll be fondly remembering those bygone salad days of last week. Remember? Wasn't it just -- what? VH1 already does that sort of thing? Oh. Well, I guess Nick will have to start airing current sitcoms, then airing sitcoms *before* they're in repeats -- pre-emptive nostalgia. There's really nowhere else for the trend to go.

Newsradio....oh yeah!!!!
How about a separate channel though for all the 60's shows we love...like My Three Sons, etc......

That's nothing. I remember when they showed The Donna Reed show, The Patti Duke Show, Mr Ed and others.

Just don't dump 'Full House'. The kids LOVE that show, and it comes on at 8:00 AM from the West Coast feed for them to watch.

I think the addition of 'Home Improvement' is a fairly logical choice for TV Land. At least it will get rid of the 10 showings of 'Roseanne' a night.
