Nickelodeon programming on DISH Network is about to become "All That" during a TeenNick time slot from 12:00 AM - 2:00 AM throughout the week. This two hour period will be called 'The 90's Are All That' and will start airing repeat shows of popular '90s programming this fall. The popular re-runs will include past favorites such as: 'Clarissa Explains it All,' 'Pete & Pete,' 'The Amanda Show,' 'All That,' 'Rugrats,' and 'Kenan and Kel.'  According to an Entertainment Weekly article, Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick said: "At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11. It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back.” Older movies from the Nickelodeon network like Good Burgermay also be on the schedule in the upcoming programming change this fall on TeenNick. Also on the horizon in another year, beginning in 2012 on the sister network Nick and Night,  will be re-runs of 'Friends,' 'Home Improvement,' 'George Lopez,' 'Yes Dear,' and 'The Nanny.' Let the nostalgic memories roll in with this exciting throwback to one of the greatest decades in TV history - well in some no twentysomethings' opinion.
