Look, I have worked in the TV industry and know a bit about the mechanics behind the screen. Whomever had the bright idea of placing adult shows on a children’s network are complete and utter idiots! Granted, those reruns of former popular shows may pay the bills with commercial endorsements, but it is also jeopardising your viewing audience, DEFAMES your brand thusly eroding original viewers which forces the viewers to find replacement of your services! Adults are not looking for, nor do we need, another channel offering adult programming or commercials aimed for adults! There are already a multitude offered for adults! Since we can no longer rely on Nickelodean to continue providing programing aimed at children and youth, this is causeing parents, and anyone looking for cartoons, to begin the search for a REPLACEMENT! In all seriousness and gravitas, Nickelodean already has a problem of NOT offering anything new to watch, whether it be NEW programs of Spongebob, Planet Sheen, Tuff Puppy, Back at the Barnyard and my favourite Fairly Oddparents. It would be enough to get regular releases of new programs of the obvious favourites, instead of purchasing new programs which may not become a success. What I wonder to myself is if there is ONLY one Program/Marketing Director doing the work for ALL of the interests of Viacom? This MIGHT explain the bumbling mistakes of inappropriate viewing material/commercials being shown IF the multitasking is causing a malfunction of the thought process when choosing what is entertaining and appropriate for children. In conclusion, should these matters be left unattended for long, your empire and edge on this market will cease to exist! Parents are looking to CUT CORNERS and are willing to cut the cable bill completely…by using Netflix coupled with the ability of using the computer to get all of their entertainment. It is simply becoming to easy and cost effective to use these resources, PLUS teaches children the mechanics of using computers for all future entertainment needs! Either take the steps to assure Nickelodean has the edge in this game or prepare for its demise! My suggestion in addition to adding new shows to current popular cartoons already shown, is to go back through older popular shows and reintroduce them with purchasing/ordering NEW programs…kind of reinventing shows. Sure, it does require investment by creating new material, yet ordering the creation of new programs of previously popular cartoons shouldn’t be a hardship PLUS it could be easily generated should those program’s have shows/ideas for shows already “in the can”. The marketing director needs to get on board by offering yearly specials to toy manufactures/etc. instead of the seasonal demand for Christmas/holidays. There is only so many commercials – of lighted pillows/blankets/shoes and the promotion of kids who really can’t sing (but are heart-throbs) – any one person can take! This shows a LACK of creativity and lack of actual paying commercials your network have! If this is all your marketing director can scrape together…time to move on!
