And of course in the nighttime, Nick at Nite will continue to air Full House.

Nickelodeon has acquired the following titles in the Mary-Kate and Ashley library:

Series: The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley (11 episodes); You're Invited to Mary-Kate & Ashley's (10 episodes); So Little Time (26 episodes); and Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action! (26 episodes).
