Why doesn't Nick consistently do "bombs" for SpongeBob & Fairly Odd Parents?

    As we ALL know Cartoon Network loves to do week-long "bombs" of shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Gumball, Steven Universe, etc...

    For those who don't know what this is, it's when a new episode is aired every day of the week instead of just once a week

    My question is:

    Why doesn't Nick consistently do this with SpongeBob & Fairly Odd Parents?

    I'm sure people would LOVE to see new episodes (especially of the former) every day of the week!

    Sure it would make them run out of episodes faster but the hiatuses are already long so it doesn't really matter

    An even BETTER question would be: Why do they consistently do this with the Loud House and Welcome to the Wayne?

    EDIT:
    I slightly changed the title so please update your bookmarks accordingly!

    They did a bomb for SpongeBob in May and The Fairly OddParents in September. They don't not do bombs for them.

    Fairly OddParents as of now is currently airing new episodes on Nicktoons as I said many times though you don't seem to listen what I am saying and you continuously jump to conclusions!

    The show previously did a month bomb for season 9 back in July 2014.

    SpongeBob bombs had done so in July, May 2016, once in May 2012, I believe

    They have done this with Spongebob. Not just last year, but a bunch of times around 2008-11, long before CN made the strategy popular again.

    Oops

    I meant to say:

    Why doesn't Nick consistently do bombs for SpongeBob & Fairly Odd Parents?

    Sorry about that!

    The Fairly OddParent may be getting cancelled, so I can see why they aren't bothering to do bombs for that show.

    As for SpongeBob, there might be a hiatus, or there is going to go on hiatus soon, since they have to work on the third SpongeBob movie, so Nick has to make sure they don't run out of episodes.

    Around 2014 they did gave FOP the bomb format that lasted a couple of weeks, which wasn't that good in results.

    Same for Spongebob, around the time Loud House premiered in May they tried it but it wasn't as good in ratings as it usually is on Saturdays.

    But if FOP is getting cancelled soon wouldn't they want to do bombs so they can get through the remaining episodes faster like what CN did with Regular Show?

    SBSP has a weird schedule for new episodes anyway so a consistent bomb may not work

    Nick isn't like that. It's not unusual for them to take ages to air the last episodes of a show.

    Remember how long it took them to air the last season of MLAATR?

    They didn't start airing it until 2008. By that point, I think the show had been out of production for a few years. They also did this with ChalkZone, taking a few years to air all of it's last season. They don't seem to have changed much since then, as it took a few years to air the last Penguins of Madagascar episodes.

    Thank goodness I was a kid at the time all this episode dragging happened. I would've ripped out my hair had I were aware of it happening to my favorite shows.
