Watch Jimmy Fallon and Will Smith do 1920s Send Ups of Smith’s Hits | NBC

The 90s Are All That is such a hit for TeenNick that they have bumped it up from 12 am to 10 pm every night of the week. After midnight was an easy time slot with little competition, but starting this Friday, your nostalgia will go head to head with the likes of Jon Stewart, Conan O’Brien, Adult Swim, and everything else on at that earlier still primetime hour. This just got way interesting.

Hey Dude will now have a much-coveted spot in the lineup, alongside All That, Kenan & Kel and Doug. And Stick Stickly – aka the famous popsicle stick from the ’90s — who make a triumphant return to host a new interactive segment called “UPick with Stick.” Every Friday night, Stick (voiced by Paul Christie, who first originated the role for Nick) will highlight ’90s Nickelodeon episodes chosen by viewers via Facebook and www.90sAreAllThat.com.

It’s the 90s, you don’t do it like that anymore!

It’s the 90’s!

The 1990s! Everything Is Terrible is awesome.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Friends was not a good show. 10 television shows from the 90’s that you think you loved…that were actually horrible. 

Also included: Mad About You, Home Improvement, Wings, Kenan and Kel, and yes, Friends. I love the contrarian spin on this (kudos Flavorpill), but something tells me it’s going to kick up some controversy.

If we’re doing this I’m going to add Step By Step and Sister SisterDo you agree with their choices of actually bad 90s shows?

The NY Times posted an article yesterday detailing Nickelodeon’s move to rebroadcast old shows as part of its upcoming “The 90s Are All That” programming block. For one, it details how web chatter on Facebook, YouTube, and blogs lead to the decision, with the help of some observant interns of course.

A group of Nickelodeon interns last summer added up the Facebook pages and groups and found then that there were nine million apparent fans of the old shows. (Now, Nickelodeon says, the total is up to 15 million.) During an annual opportunity that some interns are given to pitch programs or projects, the group presented the Facebook fan data and pitched a reruns block.

The article also states that the network plans to rotate in different shows based on demand.

I think my brain just exploded.

TV Promo: The 90s Are All That on TeenNick

So smart of them to tap into this nostalgia. Above Kenan promotes the new retro programming block from a certain orange couch that I’m sure they had to pull out of storage.

Hulu goes 90s for April Fool’s Day.
This might be my favorite so far.

Excellent work by Matt Stopera. The list includes cast members of Boy Meets World, Full House, Salute Your Shorts, Pete & Pete, and The Wonder Years, as well as Kel Mitchell, Devon Sawa, and the Mowry sisters.

entertainmentweekly:

Starting this fall, TeenNick will dust off old faves like Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Pete & Pete, The Amanda Show, All That and Clarissa Explains It All and air them in a new midnight-to-2 a.m. programming block dubbed (appropriately enough) “The ’90s Are All That.”

*cue Tumblr explosion*

This happened last week while I was gone, and I first read about it in the physical edition of EW. Physically. In a magazine that you can touch. This is what happens when you go on vacation.

Also here’s the cover of said magazine, which I also wasn’t around to post. (With Lost on it, why? just ‘cause)
