If the show isn't getting ratings, then it's easily for them to drop...I did read a ratings report that TeenNick gets along fine just airing off-Nickelodeon repeats so I suppose if Zoey 101/Victorious/iCarly keeps the channel alive, why bother funding a show they can't really control? Especially in recent years since the MTV Canada thing...they had to go along with season 13 which wasn't shown in a strip and aired on Tuesdays, and TeenNick is used to airing it on Fridays back when it was one ep a week.

I thought this was an anti The-N article and was a little upset. I too have nostalgia for the channel. TeenNick, not so much. But they did give us Degrassi fans quite a bit so they are alright. I'm not mad about them dumping Degrassi because I like its new home on Netflix better. I'm a happy little fan.

An excerpt from Stephen Stohn's new book Whatever It Takes:

Quote:
My heart sank as I put down the phone and wondered what to do next. After thirty-five years and nearly five hundred episodes, Degrassi had been cancelled.

I’d had brave words for the network executive at Viacom in reply to his almost nonchalant, “We’ve decided to move in a different direction. Degrassi is over, but we’d like you to come back to us with some ideas on how to celebrate the fourteen years you’ve been the top show on our network ― something fitting to end the series.”

“It’s not ending,” I’d said. “We believe in what we’re doing. We thought you did, too. Our plans for this coming season are just too good to let go. Degrassi is going to continue. If not with you, then somewhere else.”

He ignored me. “I’ll look forward to hearing what you come up with to finish the show. Something grand. A special episode, maybe? Or … how ’bout you talk Drake into doing a two-hour concert special to end it all? Think about it and get back to me.”

Click. And that was it. A complete shock. We’d been sure the upcoming season was in the bag. But the television business can be brutal. Despite my confident words, it appeared this was indeed the end. Mute, I stared out the window and recalled the day thirty-five years earlier when, as a newly minted entertainment lawyer, I had first met my future wife, Linda Schuyler. It was a quick meeting, made quicker by the advice I had given her: “Don’t hire me!”
Ugh. Since then, TeenNick skewed younger and younger and now with Viacom's restructuring, it looks like Viacom will drop the lesser-performing channels so byeeeeee.

I haven't watched TeenNick since the last Degrassi episdodes they aired. I did notice in my listings recently that TeenNick had finally gone HD. Go figure.

And does anyone doubt that the guy he was talking to was a snot nosed 25-year-old?

What season were they on in 2009? Was that right before season 10, their big hit? Such terrible decision making at that channel. Is it run by actual teenagers?

So I guess that "new direction" didn't work out and TeenNick is back to airing actual teen fare again. Confusing considering it was all about to turn into a NickRewind channel.

There's a NickRewind channel on the free app TubiTV. Which is really awesome for those of us who don't have cable.

I overheard a convo in my neighborhood bookstore and this woman was saying how TPTB have signed over all the rights to the classic SNICK type shows we grew up with. So expect reboots, she said. Dude she was talking to said to pitch that show with the skateboarders...Rocket Power. I almost intervened.
