    Nick Jr. is already a channel. It takes up so much space on the network airing from 8:30-2:00. So, I came up with a new block for people who don't have TeenNick to watch NickSplat. It's called Early Bird. It airs from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM replacing Spongebob at 8:00 AM. Here's what it looks like:
    Monday-Friday
    8:00 El Tigre
    8:30 Angry Beavers
    9:00 Kablam!
    9:30 Oh Yeah! Cartoons
    10:00 Avatar
    10:30 Rocko's Modern Life
    11:00 Hey Arnold!
    11:30 Chalkzone
    12:00 My Life as a Teenage Robot
    12:30 Rugrats
    1:00 Catdog
    1:30 Ren and Stimpy
    Weekends
    8:00 Doug
    8:30 Danny Phantom
    9:00 The X's
    9:30 Wild Thornberries
    10:00 Pelswick
    10:30 As Told by Ginger
    11:00 All Grown Up
    11:30 Ahhh!!! Real Monsters
    12:00 Jimmy Neutron
    12:30 Rocket Power
    1:00 Catscratch
    1:30 Action League Now!

    I don't think it's going to ever happen, despite that it has its own channel, but much like Disney per se, they mostly keep it in regards of the ratings, and even if they did, the move would be considered counterproductive as parents may or may not have the channel to see it (due to having different cable/satellite providers that may or may not carry it locally as others), plus most would think that the main channel (like Nickelodeon) would be more local to them.

    And also those old shows that you listed, some can be found on The Splat on Teennick, and others I don't think they would wanna put those show back on the schedule after they ended nearly almost a decade ago, all they going to do is fill with more reruns of Spongebob or The Loud House.

    Sadly like most of these replace block threads I just want to be honest and say that even if they replaced the block the selection of shows will never be of great selections, at best 2 to 3 for most of the replacement of block, if not that just 2 cartoons will fill up the blocks time which seems counterproductive.

    I don't think the preschool shows should be removed from the main channel. Nick Jr. isn't even available in as many homes as Nick.

    I agree with @PinkiePie97. Nick's preschool block also gets big ratings for the network, and shouldn't be removed.

    If they remove it they'll just add more SpongeBob and Loud House!

    (although the removal of Nick Jr could also open the door for more variety...)

    As long as it brings in ratings and promotes Nick Jr. proper it's going nowhere. Classic shows instead would be bad move. There's The Splat for that.

    No way. Aside from being solid for Nick in ratings - hello, PAW Patrol with a 2.5M last week, the No. 1 reason why Nick Jr. is viable is MERCHANDISE - toys, clothes, dolls, apps, etc.

    That and the block itself is whats help fuel Nick wins in K2-5 and K2-11 over Disney for years. Those two demos Nick takes quite seriously for advertising.

    Nick Jr. has been a staple of the network for a long time, they're not gonna get rid of it anytime soon.
