I'm surprised El Tigre is coming back in reruns in late night hours. I don't remember the show being popular when it was currently airing and it had a short run. It always felt like one of Nickelodeon's least popular shows honestly.

Also surprised that SpongeBob isn't on the Nicktoons schedule. It's a really really popular show and Nickelodeon's most famous cartoon.

So Nick is making their top shows only available on the main network, and being more accountable to the actual brands the networks are going for. Looks like Nicktoons is gonna be an "action" and "bro" network. Only live action on the network fit the "action" element, which works. Only caveat is simulcasting of premieres off the network.

I don't how long Nick will commit to this and if they'll change things if ratings tumble, BUT if they hold to this. Good for them. Seriously... that's a solid schedule.

Things will continue to get better in February with the removal of NickSports.
Also NickSports reminds me of CN Real, except that CN Real was not nearly aired as much as NickSports.

Could there be a Nicksplat for Nicktoons, Teen Nick, and Nick Jr?
A Nicksplat for Nicktoons and Teen Nick would feel kind of redundant. Most nostalgic shows for those channels could work on the regular Splat, such as when they've aired some of the early 2000's Nicktoons on the block. Nick Jr. would be an interesting choice, but I don't know if there's a huge market of nostalgic preschool shows. Not to mention I don't know if Nickelodeon would have the rights to all of the preschool shows that they used to air on Nick Jr. back in the day.

If Nick Jr ever made their own version of The Splat, it could just air old Nick Jr originals and not acquired stuff since they probably don't have the rights to that stuff anymore
