Nickelodeon is a television network that Phantom Strider often discusses. It has existed for over 30 years and has become the butt of many jokes in older viewers due to it's seeming obsession with appealing specifically to the 8-17 demographic.
Due to it being responsible for some of the worst, most pandering, annoying franchises to date, such as Breadwinners, Fanboy and Chum Chum and Sanjay and Craig, it has developed a very poor reputation among many outside (and inside) it's target demographic. This reputation was further attacked by a continual cycle of teen-pandering, poorly-acted, anti-feminist, out-of-hand, spoiled, low-budget teen dramas. Many speculate that these many strange changes were due to an uprooting in management over 10 years ago.
As of recent years, Nickelodeon has begun to cancel some of the shows that have given it a bad reputation (the most prominent two cancellations being Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig as of 2016) for everyone's own good. It has recently followed this up with a number of more high-quality, creative cartoons such as Harvey Beaks and Loud House. Phantom Strider speculates that the network will once again be a competitor for Cartoon Network within the next 5-10 years.
