The same question applied for the original series. Nickelodeon is a channel mainly known for its family comedy cartoons and tween sitcoms. Then there's Avatar: The Last Airbender/The Legend of Korra, which has themes of genocide, parental abuse, an Orwellian police state, civil unrest and revolution, and the sort of fear that isn't too far off from that of being raped (Korra's fear of Amon. Yeah, I went there). This all makes for really good television, but Nickelodeon programming? If Nickelodeon is willing to produce and air a show like this, why don't they do it more often? The only Nicktoon that came even remotely close was Danny Phantom. It just boggles my mind that Nickelodeon produced this show, not a network like Cartoon Network, which has a history of producing thematically mature action shows. Even today, Legend of Korra would fit in much better with the lineup Thundercats, Young Justice, and Green Lantern, rather than stuff like Kung Fu Panda and the almighty Sponge. I'm not saying this is bad for Nickelodeon -- on the contrary, I want them to make more shows like Legend of Korra. Just expressing how out of place it all feels.
