Figure It Out: Cancelled by Nickelodeon

It's game over for Figure It Out on Nickelodeon. The competition series has been cancelled according to host Jeff Sutphen.

Responding to a fan's question about the future of the series, Sutphen wrote, "unless your secret talent is bringing canceled shows back we will not be shooting any more episodes of #Fio #sadface"

Hosted by Summer Sanders, the Figure It Out game show ran for four seasons between 1997 and 2000. The series was revived in June 2012 with Sutphen and aired for two more seasons. The finale episode aired on July 16th of this year.

Though Figure It Out is over, Sutphen has started his own mock talk show, The Garage Show with Jeff Sutphen. The most recent episode features visits by fellow Nickelodeon hosts Marc Summers, Kirk Fogg and Phil Moore.

Nickelodeon’s 25 Great Gay Icons from the ’90s

If you were gay and a kid in the ’90s, you were lucky to have Nickelodeon on the tube. Not only did the classic kids network dish out quirky shows that hold up well (particularly The Adventures of Pete & Pete), but it gave you bizarre, unconventional, one-of-a-kind characters who could be your friends, no matter how ridiculous or cartoonish they were. Sometimes, Nick’s characters were seemingly tailor-made for gay audience acceptance, and that’s why we’re assembled here today in this blessed Pride month: to remember 25 of Nickelodeon’s ’90s heroes (in the pre-Spongebob era) who guided us through childhood like Kirk Fogg ushering Purple Parrots past Temple Guards.
