    To be honest, I think that most channels on TV do that. Episodes of something that annoy viewers, cause viewers to stop watching, or that just aren't satisfying don't matter to the creators as long as they make money from it. After a certain point, people stop trying to come up with original ideas for shows or stories, too - Spongebob, for example, used to be awesome, but has only been getting worse.

    Of course they're making shows for money.That's just how the television industry works. Shows are just vehicles for commercials, regardless of the artistic intent. Shows can be good, they can be bad, but whether they get made is purely a matter of money.

    TV programs themselves are ALL about money. Heck, we've seen loads of shows disappearing because of low view ratings. The only channel targeted at kids that don't mind much about money would probably be PBS - the educational channel.

    Nickelodeon is no different. Yeah, it makes cartoons and those comedy shows like iCarly, Victorious, Big Time Rush, and The Troop.

    Is there anything on Nickelodeon that's educational? Some might say Spongebob Squarepants shows us how underwater creatures live... and yes, I have to admit that the whole show was very well made. The director had majored in marine biology or so and it's no wonder he kept it cool as reality and apart from showing fire lightings being possible underwater, most of them are logical. But heck, there's nothing educational in it. What kind of kid would make notes on marine biology while watching Spongebob?

    The same goes to those real-life comedy shows. I really can't stand iCarly cuz they're always yelling at each other for no reason almost 99% of the time. Victorious? That seemed okay at first, but showing a school for future artists - they failied in making unique people, and made students seem to have personality problems - especially Tori's sister and Jade. I only watched one episode of The Troop, and what's the point in dealing with aliens?

    The only show I could at least watch the episodes fully were Big Time Rush, and even I stopped watching that mid-way. Well, yeah, I like music stuff and they're songs were just okay. Not overly brilliant, but okay - though they had been targeted negatively by many fans for copying Jonas from Disney. While I don't support them, I kinda like how the four guys were shown with different attitudes. Big Time Rush doesn't have educational purposes, though - especially with their PD yelling at them all the time and calling them 'dogs'.

    So if the show isn't educational, why is it on air? Because kids watch it despite there being nothing to learn from. There aren't much depth in the stories and each of the episodes are pretty much like the other. The shows just for fun, and for fun to be popular, it's gotta be viewed a lot - which concludes the purpose of earning money.

    Cartoon Network hasn't had a good show of their own since the days of Johnny Bravo and the Powerpuff Girls, and as far as animated movies go, there hasn't been a very good one since Prince of Egypt. We've long since degenerated from the days of The Land Before Time and The Lion King.

    As far as Nickelodeon goes, their only show of redeeming quality was Avatar: The Last Airbender. In the past, shows like Tintin were the benchmark, and only Avatar reached it.

    The Tintin movie has me intrigued, however. We'll see if it lives up to the comics and the 1991 cartoon show.

    If you have TeenNick, tune into The 90's are All That. Nickelodeon went to shit years ago. But, nonetheless, it will always be about money; "money talks", as they say.

    Did they ever have any other real reason? I mean, come on now. They were always primarily for money, Nick's just lost it's touch with making shows that're genuinely entertaining regardless of that.

    No, the way most shows are is like the way Mr. Krabs is in Spongebob. Maybe.

    I mean,if you make shows that have great quality, then it's in a good fashion. But,if the shows are just plain stupid, then it's in a Mr. Krabs moneypincher fashion,somewhat.

    Well, I still think Nick went down hill, after the 90's. I mean, yes, I'm a "90's kid", but I truly believe that, it has nothing to do with the decade I grew up in. The cartoons are just horrible (excluding Fairly OddParents, Avatar: The Last Airbender and DBZ Kai).

    What other reason would they have for conceiving and airing these atrocious shows?
    But I have to admit.....Victoria Justice is pretty hot. She's he only reason why I watch Victorious.
    Not only that, but the shows on Nick that are watched the most(like Icarly, Victorious, Drake and Josh, Zoey 101) are all directed by Dan Schneider. So he's pretty much Nick's lifeline(aside from Deagrassi and Spongebob Squarepants).

    Hang the DJ.

    Everyone knows shows on Nickelodeon are somewhat retarded. This is the reason why Spongebob is retarded. Oh, and speaking of Spongebob, I found this fanfic called Spongebob 2019. Apparently Spongebob destroyed Viacom and murdered Stephen Hillenburg, so he takes over the world. Most characters from Nick shows try to stop Spongebob. Anyways, here it is:
    Spongebob 2019 Chapter 1: Prologue, a spongebob squarepants fanfic - FanFiction.Net
    It makes me think of this line from Zero Wing and a change of year:
    In AD 2019, War Was Begginning.
