Nickelodeon (often shortened to Nick, and originally called Pinwheel) is an American basic cable andsatellite television network that is owned by the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom.

Most of its programming is aimed at children and adolescents ages 8–16, while its weekday morningedutainment programs are targeted at younger children ages 2–8. The channel's programming consists of original first-run television series, along with occasional broadcasts of theatrically-released and originalmade-for-cable movies and select other third-party programming. Its programming runs from Sunday through Wednesdays from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific Time).

Since July 1985, it has shared its channel space with Nick at Nite, a nighttime service that airs during the interim hours, and is treated as a separate channel from Nickelodeon by Nielsen for ratings purposes;[1][2] it features reruns of older primetime sitcoms, along with some original series and feature films. Both services are sometimes collectively referred to as "Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite", due to their common association as two individual channels sharing a single channel space.

As of February 2015, Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite is available to approximately 91.7 million pay television households (81.4% of households with at least one television set) in the United States.[3]

List of programs broadcast by Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon's schedule currently consists largely of original series aimed at pre-teens and young teenagers, including animated series (such as SpongeBob SquarePantsThe Fairly OddParentsThe Penguins of MadagascarThe Legend of KorraTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,[6] and Sanjay and Craig), to live-action comedy and action series (such as Power Rangers MegaforceThe ThundermansHenry DangerEvery Witch Way and The Haunted Hathaways), as well as series aimed at preschoolers (such as Team UmizoomiPeter Rabbit and Dora the Explorer). The channel also airsreruns of select original series that are no longer in production (such as Big Time RushVictoriousSam & Cat and iCarly), acquired shows (such asRocket Monkeys) as well as occasional original made-for-TV movies. The channel also airs bi-monthly special editions of Nick News, a newsmagazine series aimed at children that debuted in 1992 as a weekly series.[7]


The channel occasionally airs feature films produced by the network's Nickelodeon Movies film production division (whose films are distributed by sister company Paramount Pictures). Although the film division bears the Nickelodeon brand name, the cable channel does not have access to most of the movies produced by its film unit. Nickelodeon does have broadcast rights to most feature films based on or that served as the basis for original series produced by the channel (such as Barnyard: The Original Party Animals and The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie); the majority of the live-action feature films produced under the Nickelodeon Movies banner are licensed for broadcast by various broadcast and cable television outlets within the United States other than Nickelodeon (although the network has aired a few live-action Nickelodeon Movies releases such as Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging and Good Burger).

Nickelodeon also advertises hour-long episodes of its original series as movies; though the "TV movie" versions of Nickelodeon's original series differ from traditional television films in that they have shorter running times (approximately 45 minutes, as opposed to 75–100 minute run times that most television movies have), and use a traditional multi-camera setup for regular episodes (unless the program is natively shot in the single-camera setupcommon of films) with some on-location filming. Nickelodeon also periodically acquires theatrically released feature films for broadcast on the channel including Universal's Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale, several Monster High films, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles Forever (which was later released by Nickelodeon Movies through Paramount DVD for DVD release), with the Barbie and Monster High films usually aired under a brokeredformat in which Mattel purchases the time in order to promote the release of their films on DVD within a few days of the Nickelodeon premiere, an arrangement possible as Nickelodeon does not have to meet the Federal Communications Commission rules which disallow that arrangement for broadcast channels due to regulations disallowing paid programming to children.

Workshop Buds aired on Nickelodeon that have the commercial break for the list of other commercials on Nickelodeon.
