TeenNick Fall 2011 Schedule; Bounce TV Launches With The Wiz

TeenNick will not have many changes it its fall line-up, except an hour of "The '90s Are All That" block will change. TeenNick stokes fan demand for more '90s shows with the addition of two new series to the network's buzzworthy "The '90s Are All That" two-hour programming block. The new lineup of iconic Nickelodeon '90s shows kicks off Monday, Sept. 5, with back-to back episodes of the popular animated series Rocko's Modern Life and Hey Arnold! at 12 a.m. and 1 a.m., respectively (all times ET). Added by viewers' request, Rocko and Hey Arnold! will regularly join All That and Kenan & Kel starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, in the block's 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. timeslots, replacing Clarissa Explains It All and Doug, which will be the off the schedule for now. The block also features deeply integrated, fan-driven social media components on Facebook and at www.90sAreAllThat.com. "The '90s Are All That" airs Monday-Friday 12-2 a.m. with replays 2-4 a.m. on TeenNick.
Elsewhere on TeenNick Fall 2011, catch up on all of the excitement of Degrassi: Now or Never before they are gone for good, on Labor Day from 9am-12am leading into the new 90's block premieres! And immerse yourself in House of Anubis, the juicy soap opera filled with mystery and dark secrets weekdays at 5pm starting September 26 on TeenNick! The rest of the regular schedule will remain as it is now, with sitcoms such as Malcolm in the Middle and What I Like About You starting at 10pm leading into the '90s block.

Bounce TV's web site (http://bouncetv.com) will have complete programming schedule and local Bounce TV channel locations available beginning Sept. 1. But we already gave you the schedule earlier this month. It's just unfortunate that there are no sitcoms on the schedule, but we have hope that eventually we will get one.
