Nick at Nite's TV Land

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

By the mid-90s, Nick at Nite was reaching the height of its popularity, and its library of classic television expanded to the point where some of the older shows beloved by all were being pushed aside to make room for fresher content.  In response, executives at Nick at Nite's parent company Viacom decided to launch a 24-hour channel to air the classic programs that had grown stale on Nick at Nite.

When the new network was announced in 1995, I couldn't have been more excited.  If you've been reading my articles this week that honor the 35th Anniversary of Nick at Nite, you'll know I fell in love with classic television at a young age.  When I read there would be a new channel dedicated to 24 hours of classic TV, I was beyond elated.

Speaking of my week-long tribute to Nick at Nite, I'd like to thank you for reading YesterYear Retro this week.  I know my articles were a bit long and packed full of information, but Nick at Nite of the 90s means so much to me, and I wanted to make sure I paid my respects and did it justice.  I had to comb through hundreds of websites and old message boards to find some of the information that I provided this week, so, hopefully, someone else looking for Nick at Nite and TV Land information only has to come here to find it all.

I often consider that when TV Land shifted towards modern and original programming, it was also the beginning of the end for Nick at Nite, so it's quite fitting that TV Land bembe the subject of my final article for Nick at Nite Week on YRM.
