Back in March we learned that a handful of programming from the 90′s would make its way to late night time slots on TeenNick for a great block of shows called The 90′s Are All That. Originally starting with All That, Kenan & Kel, Doug and Clarissa Explains It All, the line-up has since expanded to include shows like Hey Arnold! and Rugrats. Now another Nickelodeon classic is joining the ranks as EW has word that Hey Dude is saddling up for some reruns. If this just didn’t hit during your childhood or you just didn’t have Nickelodeon as a kid, the series, which aired from 1989-1991, followed a wacky group of teenagers working at the Bar None western dude ranch and starred David Brisbin (Mr. Ernst), David Lascher (Ted), Christine Taylor (Melody), Kelly Brown (Brad), and Joe Torres (Danny).
Not only is Hey Dude coming around, but the entire programming line-up is moving from the late night time slot to a primetime start at 10/9c. And for even more great news for children of the 90′s another staple from Nickelodeon will return every Friday. The popsicle stick host Stick Stickly (I still remember the address where you could send letters that could be brought up on air) will host UPick with Stick where every Friday night, episodes can be chosen by viewers via Facebook and www.90sAreAllThat.com. Honestly, why can’t we just have a whole channel dedicated to Nickelodeon’s programming from the 90′s? Until that day comes, this will have to suffice I suppose.
As a child of the 90′s, I have fond memories of lounging around my room and watching non-stop Nickelodeon. Though many of my favorite shows like Rocko’s Modern Life, Doug and more have made it to DVD, some of these shows still aren’t easily available for nostalgic viewing. Well, that changes today as EW reports Nickelodeon is in the midst of establishing a late night block of programming on TeenNick to help kids at heart like myself journey back to the 90′s with all their favorite shows.
The titles mentioned include but may not be limited to Rugrats, Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, Kenan & Kel and The Amanda Bynes Show. Though I’d like to see a little more Nicktoon action in the line-up, this is a great start to the programming block which is being dubbed The 90′s Are All That. You’ll be able to catch these reruns sometime this fall between midnight and 2am. ” 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.” I really can’t wait.
Would you want to know the exact moment you would meet your soulmate? In the unusual and very original new sci-fi romantic comedy TiMER, Oona O’Leary, played by Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Emma Caulfield, is desperate to find “the one” who is meant for her.
In this alternate version of present-day Los Angeles, a reasonable installation fee and moderate monthly charges allows anyone to have a timer implanted in their wrist, which accurately displays the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until you will meet your soulmate. However, Oona faces the rare dilemma of a blank timer, meaning that her soulmate – whoever and wherever he is – doesn’t have one. At nearly 30, Oona is searching for her perfect match, wondering if she can just give in and let herself experience the unpredictability of the unknown, when it comes to love.
We recently caught up with actress Emma Caulfield on the phone, and she shared her gratefulness for being able to play such a well-written character in a great indie film that has something to say. She also talked about her role in Marti Noxon’s new television series for TeenNick, called Gigantic (premiering in July), which takes a fictional look at the complicated lives of children of Hollywood celebrities, as well as her original comic Contropussy, about an ordinary house cat looking for excitement in the world outside. Check out what she had to say after the jump:
