I thought this was a great rant. LOL

I was surprised to see cartoons on that late on Nick at Nite. I was hoping for Thanksgiving episodes at least but no such luck.

The programming schedules for NAN & TV Land have sucked for the most part. This changing the schedule all the time is just ridiculous. I also wish they would take The Fresh Prince off there schedule. First I don't like the show & 2nd they show it way way too much. Enough!

As far as having a musical performance at half time, I don't get why they needed to do that just cause it was Thanksgiving. Big deal...

The Rugrats movie had started showing in my area around 7 p.m. I think. I remember we had just finished cleaning up after Thanksgiving dinner and my niece mentioned the movie was on. I had no idea they continued to show any cartoons in the late evening...

I don't get the half-time show for Thanksgiving football either. If they don't have a show for any other pre-Super Bowl game, why do it for Thanksgiving? That is the time to get away from the television.

I always use cash at Christmas time.

Possibly targeting 20-somethings? Spongebob does have an adult fanbase,

I'm with you . . . Spongebob is hilarious! Rugrats isn't.

Good rant Solomon. NAN has no right in mind to air a movie about a bunch of unbelievable, naive babies at midnight. They should have aired a Thanksgiving marathon like they have in previous years. Roseanne, Cosby, Home Improvement all had great Thanksgiving episodes, yet we didn't get to see them this year.

I don't mind the halftime show. I didn't watch it anyways this Thanksgiving, but it is just a normal game. They don't have to hype it up just because it's thanksgiving.

Using credit is ok if you are going to send the CC company the exact amount you charged when you get paid. Not like my Aunt, charge $400 and only send in $30 when she gets paid-lol

I'm not a huge Roseanne fan but A thanksgiving ep would have been a lot better than a Rugrats Movie-lol

That's the kind of sh*t that gets people in trouble, not to mention paying all that interest.

I can imagine how you must have looked when you saw Rugrats! Believe me, my 6 year old son would have watched it had he known it was on! He is that crazy! Once I fell asleep with the tv on in my bedroom and there he was watching some channel that was airing cartoons at midnight!

I agree with you Solomon... this is what has happened now since Nickelodeon has taken over Nick at Nite. This never would have happened in the past...

cartoons aren't necessarily for kids. The Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy, etc... are all huge with adults. I could see The Simpsons on N@N/TV Land one of these days a decade or two into the future (it needs to wrap first, I think it's going to call it a series in 2009)
