TeenNick (formerly The N) is an American pay television channel. It is directed at teenagers. It was founded in 2007. It replaced Nick GaS and the programming block on the Noggin TV channel with the same name.

Programming block[change | change source]

The block launched on March 4, 2001[1] and lasted until February 1, 2009. TEENick aired on Sunday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. ET/PT. In 2005, it was rebroadcast on Saturday from 8 to 10 p.m. ET/PT (replacing the popular SNICK block that started in 1992). Saturday night editions were broadcast as "TEENick Saturday Night" until 2007 where it rebranded as "TEENick" for both broadcasts. The inaugural host was Nick Cannon, followed by Jason Everhart (a.k.a. "J. Boogie").

A block also aired on January 16, 2007, and until May 12, 2007, but then returned on March 1, 2008. The block included shows such as All That, The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, Unfabulous, Mr. Meaty, Zoey 101, H2O: Just Add Water, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and All Grown Up!. On August 3, 2009, TEENick was dropped from The N again.
