Everyone is living in the past. Nick@Nite went downhill a while ago. With Digital Subchannels, DVDs, and streaming, I see no need for Nick@Nite to go back to showing older programs.

Remember, no one is making you watch the current Nick@Nite. You can find most older shows on Subchannels and DVDs.

I moved on from Nick@Nite and so should everyone else. They're never going back to what they use to be, so there is no point in complaining about it.

None of the above. Leave it be.

Classic TV on Nick at Nite? That ship has sailed. Y'all need to move on. There's plenty of alternative ways to get your classic TV fix. Most of them have already mentioned.

I don't even pay attention to Nick at Nite anymore because it's not even remotely close to the way it originally was and it won't ever live up to its original classic TV purpose ever again.

Like I said before I would love it if Nick At Nite went back to showing the old shows like Dobie Gillis, Donna Reed, Mr. Ed, Leave it to Beaver, etc. Nickelodeon called their nighttime segments Nick at Nite, which I know everyone here knows but that's when I watched it the most. At the time I think I was in high school or junior high and my brother was 10 1/2 years younger than me. He loved the station and watched it all day long but we would watch it at night together. I loved the old shows and had never heard of Dobie Gillis or Mr. Ed before so it was a nice introduction. Yes, there are several classic TV stations these days but it would boost Nicholodan's ratings if they did a block of shows like they used to. I think they started around 7 and went till 10 and then they woudl rerun them again late at night. Or they could start it at midnight and go till 5. Most everyone has DVRs these days and could tape the old shows. I would. I tape a lot of old shows off of TV.
In memory of my wonderful husband. I love and miss you very much, but I will always keep you in my heart.

I gave up on Nick at Nite a long time ago. It will never be classic TV again. That’s just wishful thinking. I agree with the above posters that it’s time to move on. It was nice when it did show older programs but that’s a thing of the distant past now. There are plenty of other ways to watch these older shows nowadays.

I've said this before, N@N didn't leave you, you left N@N. The programming at night was themed towards the parents of the children watching Nickelodeon during the dayparts. Those parents in 1985 were around 30 years old, born around 1955, midway point of the babyboomer generation. This of course is right in the center of the advertisers happy zone. But that was then, this is now, that same individual is 64. The kids watching Nickelodeon in 1985 are now the parents, and the tv viewing experience of their youth was a much different one.

I agree with others who say that Nick at Nite will never go back to what it used to be, that ship has long ago sailed.

For several reasons, I seldom watch any of the retro channels now. Often times, shows are edited or time compressed, and some of these channels now telecast in widescreen, it's all no good.

I have DVD's of most of my favorite old shows and watch those instead of the retro channels. Most of the DVD's in my collection have uncut versions of the episodes, which is exactly what I like.

While I know it'll never return to what it used to be. I said bring back Nick @ Nite how it used to be. I'd pretty much make it a cable TV hybrid of Antenna TV and Decades. With weekends being marathons of 50's and 60's shows.
