    In case anyone didn't know today is the last day for Nick GAS. Will anyone miss it? Back when I first got it was one of my favorite channels. I was loving the chance to see shows like Double Dare, Legends Of The Hidden Temple, Get The Picture...then a few years later we only get about 7 shows, then 6, then 5. And they would play the same episodes at least four times a day.

    It still urks me that they dropped the orginal Double Dare, Super Sloppy Double, and Family Double Dare, but keep Double Dare 2000. It's really a shame what became of the channel in its final days...

    Let's just hope The N adds more classic live action.

    More proof that Nick hates the people who made Nick successful in the first place.

    This is just more evidence that cartoons are going farther down the drain with every year.

    Heh, I wish. That's one of the candidates we're trying to push for.

    This is really no suprise. Nick GAS sucked. I grew up on these shows, but the way they ran the network was ridiculous. They didn't have enough material to keep the network going, so they played the same 6 shows in a loop all day.

    The-N isn't much better they've played the same episodes of Degrassi 3 times in a 24hour period! :mad:

    They need to shut down the entire Nickelodeon operation, break it up, and start over from scratch. That means firing everybody and replacing them with people who really know what the fans really want from the channel.

    I think that some of us at Superhero Hype! could run Nickelodeon better than the *******s they have got currently. What do you think?

    I watched it for a little bit, but then my cable provider took the channel away from me.

    Exactly. There wasn't enough shows to create a 24 hour network around it. The ONLY way Nick Gas could have worked is if they would have created NEW game shows and during the after hours air non-Nick shows ala Nick at Nite.

    The problem is that you would have better luck convincing Cartoon Network to do that. Nick is STILL a very popular channel with kids. The CEOs don't have a reason to replace anyone. They are making their money.

    The thing is, they are giving the fans what they want. NICK's fans aren't 20-somethings who grew up on Legend of the Hidden Temple and Ren and Stimpy. It is the eight year old boy who wants to watch the same episode of Sponge Bob four times a day. Or the 13 year old girl who likes Zoey 101 or DeGrassi. NICK is giving its fans exactly what they want.

    Exactly. Nick is technically doing a good job. It's pleasing older fans where they are failing. I mean...when Nick Toons Network was launched I thought it would be for old skool fans, but instead its the same crap they air on regular Nick. And Toon Disney is another disappointment. They started in the right path with reruns of Duck Tales but soon after started making wrong decisions. I think Boomerang from Cartoon Network is the ONLY one thats doing a good job. Yes...it COULD BE BETTER but compared to Nick and Disney its way better.

    I like Boomerang a lot, but you have to keep in mind...the older fans can't make a network. Say you play Ren and Stimpy, Rocko, etc...and nothing but all day every day. Sure, some people will watch for a couple hours for the novelty factor...but a few people reliving their child hood for a couple hours doesn't make a network.

    Yea...you're right BUT i'm sure there's kids who will like it and keep it alive. I'm a child of the late `80s and early `90s but I watched Looney Tunes (`30s - `60s), The Flintstones (`60s), and Scooby-Doo (`70s). So...I don't see why a kid from today can't see stuff from the `80s, `90s, and before that.
