When Nickelodeon first launched in 1977, it seemed like little more than a child's answer to Saturday Night Live and MTV. In fact, it wasn't until Nickelodeon debuted the Canadian sketch series You Can't Do That on Television in the U.S. that this nascent network began to gain real traction amongst fans of all ages. Before too long, the basic cable channel became quite popular, especially with the launch of it's Nick At Nite line-up featuring such "classic" shows as Alf, The Facts of Life, Growing Pains and many others throughout the years. Viewership certainly proceeded to explode, turning it into one of today's favorite hubs for nostalgia of all kinds.
Nickelodeon had officially arrived in the 1990s, taking its signature brand to the big screen with Nickelodeon Movies in 1995. It wasn't until 1997, though, that this film division made its most iconic and beloved movie of all time: Good Burger. »

SNL is a show that runs hot and cold; it’s had good years (mid70s, early 90s) and bad (most of the 80s). Now nearing the end of its current season, it seems to be in another of its mid-decade slumps. The new faces in the last few seasons didn’t add much to an already mediocre cast, and with his lucky penny Kristen Wiig who let’s face it, carried the show in recent years, already gone and other longtime cast members soon to follow, somewhere show creator Lorne Micheals is probably in panic mode.Watching SNL be only ‘kinda funny’ makes fans of sketch comedy wish they could see new episodes of Mad TV instead of just re-runs on cable. Ok: so it didn’t run as long as SNL or have alum that continued on to semi successful yet stable movie careers. Sure, SNL had better guest stars, »

That's the heavy-duty lesson Mark Wahlberg, The Rock and Anthony Mackie learn as a trio of gym rats-cum-criminals in "Pain & Gain," the latest filmsplosion from the Michael Bay ejaculatory system.
