Aren't they on like the 3rd or 4th rotation?
This is the 2nd time they've started over, though some of the episodes have aired 4 or 5 times already from the launch marathon etc. (while others have aired only once or twice).

Like I hate that Roseanne is on 11 times a night but not the fans on this board who love the show.

I don't agree. For example, it is fun to have a marathon of a show you are a fan of every once in a while as a special stunt event. But to have a show on nonstop everynight gets tiring. I find, at least for me, that when I watch a lot of episodes of one show in a row, it sort of gets all mashed together and I don't even remember, after coming back from commercial, what episode I'm watching lol.

Remember in the old days, when a marathon of 4 episodes was such a great event? Now, everyday a regular schedule technically has a marathon of practially every show.

Well I will say that if any of the shows below had a marathon every night I would be in TV Heaven

I just saw a commercial on Nick, and Square Roots: The Story of SpongeBob SquarePants will air Thursday at 10pm during Nick at Nite.

Didnt this just air on VH1?

SpongeBob RULES!!! I can't wait to watch that documentary again!

And to the ones complaining about the marathon....you'd be really surprised about how huge of an adult fanbase the Sponge has, myself included. And by the way, you don't HAVE to watch the marathon if you don't like the show. Rather than spew hate, just don't watch. If I don't like a show, I don't call it ''retarded'' and such, because every show has its fans. If you're going to criticize something, at least be constructive. It really bothers me when people pass judgments on shows without even really giving them a chance, even if they are, for the most part, aimed at kids.

And FYI, it isn't just ''mindless kiddy trash'' - there are some hilarious double-entrendes in the first three seasons, you know, things that only adults would understand. I think this poster on Yahoo Answers, ''Irncholliman'', sums it up best:

''Because it appeals to both adults and children in the manner that the jokes are mature in nature but not dirty and slap-knee. I admire how the show doesn't insult kids' intelligence and actually still uses the same brand of comedy it has been using since it's beginning. Plus SpongeBob's jovial nature, Patrick' bewilderedness, Squidward's cynicism, and Crab's greed just go perfect for kids and grownups. Main thing: The jokes can be interpreted so that while the kids get the surface joke, we're laughing at the hidden meaning behind it.''

WOW, that is a lot of FM/Nanny on weekends. Home Improvement might as well be totally gone.

Can this schedule please last more than a week?

They're phasing out Home Improvement even faster now. Like you said, what's the point of 2 airings on a Friday night?

It's hard to make anything out of these new weekend schedules - Family Matters gets 2 hours in latenight, and The Nanny gets 3 straight hours. Are they doing well in latenight or is it just filler? The clear thing is that Malcolm must not have been doing well past 1am. I wish we could get some breakdowns here.

FM must be doing really well in late night, even before the recent schedule changes it was always airing at 5am on Fridays and Sundays and two hours from 2-4am on Saturdays.

Weird how a show can do well on weekends in latenight but not so well on weekdays in latenight.

Nonetheless, I am glad to see The Nanny airing all week at 11pm. Those 3 hours on weekends is a bit too much, though.
