Entertainment Weekly is reporting that TeenNick's successful The 90s Are All That line-up will be swapping shows starting September 6th. Reruns of Clarissa Explains it All and Doug will be replaced on Tuesdays and Thursdays by animated shows Hey Arnold! and Rocko's Modern Life, with All That and Kenan and Kel remaining in the line-up all week. Don't fret, though, as Clarissa and Doug will remain in the line-up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
The 90s Are All That, a mishmash of Nickelodeon programming from the 1990s, airs weeknights from midnight to 2 Am.
Hey Arnold! tells the story of a football-headed 4th grader boy who lives with his grandparents in the boarding house they run and showcases his interactions with tenants and classmates from Ps 118. It spawned a 2002 feature film that featured voices from Christopher Lloyd, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Dan Castellaneta. Rocko's Modern Life follows the misadventures of an »

Before you make rash judgments about Dimension's new remake of Short Circuit, the 1986 movie about a weaponized robot named Johnny 5 that gains intelligence after lightning strikes it, or its director Tim Hill, who helmed Hop and Alvin and the Chipmunks, let me say this: We can't be precious about middling robot drama from the '80s, nor can we underestimate Hill, a former Rocko's Modern Life writer and story editor. I'm kind of excited! Ideally, it'll be like Real Steel except without the hilarious robot feelings. [Deadline] »
Dimension Films is negotiating a deal with director Tim Hill (Hop) to take the reins of its Short Circuit remake. Back in 2009, the studio tapped Steve Carr (Paul Blart: Mall Cop) to direct a script from Dan Milano. Fast-forward two years and Deadline is reporting that Hill will take over the project and oversee a brand new script. For those too young to remember, the 1986 original was directed by John Badham (WarGames) and starred Steve Guttenberg and Ally Sheedy. The pic told the story of an experimental military robot (known as Number 5/Johnny 5) that, after being electrocuted by lightning, develops intelligence, escapes from its government home, and strikes up a kinship with a family. In addition to Hop and now the Short Circuit remake, Hill also directed 2007's Alvin and the Chipmunks and has written for animated series' such as Rocko's Modern Life and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Sick was the best way to describe me this week. Y'all should have seen me in the same room as Bradley Cooper doing the Limitless Press conference, discreetly wiping snot out of my moustache (and what a moustache it has become, my facial-hair fan friends).There was also some "bidness" to take care of over the weekend regarding renewable energy and pregnant woman and the other jobs that abbreviated this column just a smidge.The cool thing that I've been doing all week is re-watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles in preperation of my grand theory of Terminator Timelines. As an i09 editor told me: "I'm pretty sure that exists already," but it's not Mine, dammit (more on that below).I'm a sci-fi fan and it's a great time of year for sci-fi fans, so let's geek out a little bit shall we?

As a child of the 90's, I have fond memories of lounging around my room and watching non-stop Nickelodeon. Though many of my favorite shows like Rocko's Modern Life, Doug and more have made it to DVD, some of these shows still aren't easily available for nostalgic viewing. Well, that changes today as EW reports Nickelodeon is in the midst of establishing a late night block of programming on TeenNick to help kids at heart like myself journey back to the 90's with all their favorite shows. The titles mentioned include but may not be limited to Rugrats, Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, Kenan & Kel and The Amanda Bynes Show. Though I'd like to see a little more Nicktoon action in the line-up, this is a great start to the programming block which is being dubbed The 90's Are All That. You'll be able »

Happy, happy, joy, joy! Two weeks ago, I was doing a marathon of The Adventures Of Pete & Pete. Like most people my age who we're growing up in the 90's, I miss the old Nickelodeon line-up. Before my Pete & Pete re-viewing, I was watching Are You Afraid Of The Dark?. While I love Spongebob nothing compares to Rocko's Modern Life. For awhile now, some sites that I visit often have been talking about 90's Nickstalgia. These twenty-somethings (and some close to thirty-somethings) »
