I am thoroughly upset with Nickelodeon for showing a preview for an adult scary movie! Who thought it would be okay for them to put something like that on a childs tv channel? It doesn't matter what time it was aired, that should never be shown.

Why are we showing south park commercials? They are rude, vulgar and inappropriate for children. I have a 2 year old, 4 year old and 9 year old.

I am concerned about the use if the "dab" dance/pose being used on numerous occasions on this television channel. My reasoning for this is the origin and the real meaning of the "dab". I don't think my children or any other children need to be exposed to this kind of nonsense. Furthermore, the dab's origin comes from a substance called dab which is made from hash oil, the pose part comes when people smoke it causing them to cough into their elbow. My concern is that if children see this being done by their favorite characters on this channel that they will become influenced by the dab's culture and start using dab or similar substances. Please consider this.

My daughter absolutely loved the loud house, as did I. Until I realized there was 2 fathers on the show. I monitor my child very thoroughly. I realize it's 2016 and gay marriage is legal in most states but I'm not ok with teaching my daughter that gay marriage is ok. I'm very disappointed in this decision that Nick has made. I hope in the future things are changed, until then we will watch Disney.

They have removed a program called Talia in the kitchen while it was at least halfway through the series and left it on a huge cliffhanger. I really want the series to come back on nickelodeon.

SpongeBob " panty raid"episode is disturbing and is completely inappropriate for my eight-year-old son to view. I am overtly appalled I am disgusted I am overwhelmed with embarrassment. I need for someone to contact me and tell me how should I explain to my 8 year old son what a panty raid is. Your narrative is not funny it's not humorous it is disturbing. That's an adult theme not a child theme should be kept as an adult thing.

Nickelodeon is a kids television station. BET awards and other shows with adult content is not appropriate programming for this station.

I'm so sick and tired of paying for repeats. Your network is crap. You should just name your stupid channel "spongebob channel" .. The cartoon has been aired now for far too many years. Retire it. It teaches my son who has Down Syndrome. Except maybe how to be annoying and lowers IQ! It's not funny, he doesn't laugh at it, gets bored easily. I can't stand paying good money for this channel to be showing the most un educational shows and cartoons. Whatever happened to good shows like DarkWing Duck, Tailspin, rescue Rangers, Duck Tails?

Those were shows that actually taught kids good things without it even seeming educational! Bring shows like that back or create better cartoons that have the same kind of philosophy. Stop trying to dumb down our kids. If I don't start seeing changes soon, I will just buy DVD sets of good shows for my child and niece to watch instead and your network will never be played in my house ever again If I could give your station negative 5 stars I would.

I have three sons under the age of 10 and we were watching an episode of teenage mutant ninja turtles entitled "runt of the litter", we heard the word "shit" repeated no less than 5 times. This is a disgusting use of the English language and is inappropriate for a children's program. This episode should be taken off air and investigated. I await your reply!

I was watching Rugrats with my 3 year old and 4 year old (it was a show I watched when I was younger) and an advertisement for Adam and Eve... that's a SEX TOY COMPANY. I am so upset. Who on earth thought that was acceptable!? Whatever company you are using for advertising isn't working. I don't mind the other advertisements aimed at older kids or moms (family related) but that took it way too far. Now I'm worried about letting my kids watch a kids' channel. I'm very upset and frustrated...especially knowing nothing will be done to fix it.

During an episode of Henry Danger, Nick played an add for a surgical weight loss service that included inappropriate images and inappropriate messages on body images. It confused adolescents and was geared to parents. We have decided that our daughter can no longer watch Nickelodeon.

Why isn't there any more showing of Miraculous: tales of ladybug and cat noir? I have waged for it every Sunday at 11:00-2:00 then you knock it back to 6:00-9:00 which is fine but when I went to record it for tomorrow is says there is no showings of Miraculous? What's up with that Nickolodeon?

My mum went to London last weekend 06/02/16 and went into the Nickelodeon shop she brought a pair of paw patrol pyjamas for my son, my son has only worn them twice and there is a massive hole in the leg where the seam has gone my son is very upset as he can no longer wear these.

Also my mum is not happy as they cost £18 for them and he's has only been able to wear them twice, the trouble we have is my mum only visits London once a year so is unable to take them back. I feel for the amount that was paid for them this isn't acceptable and therefore am hoping for a refund or a another pair with some compensation. Look forward to hearing from the Nick corporate office.

What's up with this station? 8:30 p.m. my four-year old son and I are watching the last of the Rugrats before bedtime when a makeup commercial for a major makeup brand comes on advertising for their "Nude" eye shadows. The girls in the commercial were not teens but grown women in their 20's wearing black lace and sheer outfits while one of them is not wearing clothes on her top half at all. She is scantily holding a guitar to shield her nude body. When I saw this, I actually had to switch on the info to see what station we were actually watching. When the commercial came on, my little boy looked at me confused and asked, "Mom, why is that girl not wearing clothes?" He even said, "but why is she like that? Girls don't do that."

He was uncomfortable by the commercial himself whether he has any inclination of sexuality or not. There is no excuse, regardless of whether it's aired on "Teen" Nick or regular Nick, there is already enough over exposure to our kids and hyper sexualization of almost everything already. This should not have been here or seen. I'm sure some could refute and ask why not change or avoid the channel, but the reality remains that my child and other children cannot even watch a child-based network because someone is always going push the limit and taint -- what myself and other parents were once appreciative for -- a television "safe-zone" with appropriate programming and entertainment for all ages.

Shame on you. Instead of respecting the moral boundary of adult and child, you(Nick) instead desensitize the parents and the children failing to sensor the content and continue to consciously allow this inappropriate content to slip through the cracks.

We too are upset and disappointed that most Paw Patrol items such as bedding are missing Sky. My daughter is in love with Paw Patrol and noticed that every time she goes to name each character on her bedding or her toy box she knows Sky is missing. What's up with this ? It's honestly being very sexist in my opinion and I don't feel like I should have to explain to my 3 yr old some lame reason that the only female character of her favorite show is not on most products. You NEED to fix this.

My daughter is 8 years old. She is obsessed with the show Full House. We usually let her watch an episode before putting her to bed. On more than one occasion, previews to horror movies have been played during the full house commercials. My daughter is not allowed to watch horror movies because it results in nightmares and a few days of sleepless nights. I used to record the rugrats for her, but stopped doing that since those same movie previews were being shown.

I am requesting for these previews to be banned from your network. Now that people can record any show at any time, kids can run into these commercials. I know I cannot be the only mom that has put in this request. We enjoy your network, but I cannot allow my daughter to watch Nickelodeon if these previews are not pulled from your network.

I was watching Alvin and the Chipmunks at 8:45 in the morning with my 5 year old son. During the commercial break an advertisement for a show called the Dancing Elites on the Oxygen network came on. The commercial was inappropriate and absolutely disgusting with cross dressing men wearing highly revealing outfits, dancing in a sexually suggestive manner, and showing their rear ends to the camera.

This type of paid advertisement has no place on a children's network, much less at 845 in the morning. Due to this poor choice of programming I will be blocking Nickelodeon from being viewed and you have lost a customer. I will also be making others of my family and friends aware of this so that their children do not need to be exposed to this very inappropriate content. It is sad that you decided to exchange your channel's dignity for a few advertising dollars.

I am saddened by Nickelodeon's choice to exclude or minimize the only female character in the Paw Patrol. My son watches the show and owns everything from books, action figures, and bedsheets to wall decals and water bottles. His favorite character is Skye and she is often left out or just underrepresented. I don't know why you would sell a product that came with all of the vehicles for each pup and exclude hers. I came home today after getting him the Paw Patrol Busy Book from Barnes and Noble, and he was the one who noticed. So, once again thank you for minimizing.

So much to say.... I remember years ago getting annoyed with Nickelodeon because of the shows were, well, stupid. I find spongebob to be funny if your child is old enough or at least mature enough to understand that potty humor isn't good in real life situations. We all laugh at potty humor on YouTube and places like that. Again age/maturity appropriate. That is for the parents to decide. Here's my problem:

My son was watching Bubble Guppies and I saw wrong info being given. They had a pentagon shape but repeatedly called it a hexagon. My son is very into shapes right now and he even noticed the episode was wrong. He normally doesn't watch this show and now I have reason to not let him. I'm concerned that there is more misinformation on this show. The episode was on 12/12 at 9am. It is advertised as educational. It should be advertised as ejukayshunul. The first episode I let him watch and there is a major error. Here's the kicker:

I went to the Nickelodeon and Nick Jr sites to complain directly. It very difficult to find where to make a complaint. Once I found it and had everything typed and ready to send, I hit "submit" and it tells me that page no longer exists. Why not?! Do you know how bad your shows are and don't want to hear about it anymore?

I have a complaint about the TV program game shakers on Nickelodeon series 1 episode 3. The dad character double g has an alcohol bottle in his hand whilst speaking to the little girls. This is disgusting that they would advertise alcohol during a kids program.

I have been looking for a Paw Patrol bedding in full size. For some reason only the male characters for Paw Patrol have a full size bedding set. The one that features the female characters only comes in twin and toddler. Why is this? Why can't both be offered in the same bedding sizes? I have a two year old right now who wants Paw Patrol on her bed and I have not explanation for her on why she can't have it. She continually reaches for the twin set when we are in the store but it does not fit her bed.

Nick should not be showing the Love Has no Labels ad. I was very shocked and upset to see this played on a kid's TV Station. That is the main reason for my Nickelodeon complaint today. What is the point of showing this to children except to in subtle and not so subtle ways, indoctrinate our children into the liberal idea that same gender love/relationships are ok. This is confusing especially to the younger kids. That should be left up to a parent's discretion, not a children's TV station. This may mean that with that discretion, some parents won't allow their kids to watch Nick, and I'm practically there. It is such a touchy subject, it should be left out of kids TV. I hold my Christian beliefs dear to my heart and am very conscientious and diligent about teaching my children those beliefs and defending them even when it seems unpopular. Wow, just leave this out of your station. Leave that up to the parents and let kids be kids and enjoy some kid's TV without political propaganda.

My kids turned the channel when the dumb wee wee dance video came on - I said no, I want to see what you guys are talking about - I can't believe that is even on there. How inappropriate. The wee wee dance part needs to go. I'm starting to not like this channel - I got rid of the Teen one a while back, but now I'm not like the regular one.

Nickelodeon is not the place for The Love has No Labels ad (kissing skeleton). The ad has many positive messages and I have no problem with love between people of same gender. But sex between people of same gender is implied and many people consider this immoral. A huge number of people are afraid to say they think it to be immoral. Nick should not cave in to "advocacy groups". We should respect these people and be sensitive but not give approval.

I'm upset about the new movie, "Genie in a Bikini" that Nickelodeon has been advertising. It is scheduled to air on May 25. My 7 year old niece first saw the ad and ran to her mother upset about seeing a boy wearing a bikini! I googled the title of the show to see what she was talking about and all the links that came up were links to an old PORN movie called "Genie in a String Bikini." I couldn't find one link to the Nick show until I added Nickelodeon to my search. I cannot believe Nickelodeon would use the title of a porn movie for a new show marketed to kids! I find that appalling! Many kids, including my own, google favorite shows and characters to find more information. It is irresponsible and disgusting that Nick would use a title that would lead kids to Porn sites. Nickelodeon is now banned from my home.

This isn't to big of a deal. I was wondering if the company could play more cartoons instead of TV shows? All up during the day two cartoons play then it goes back to TV shows such as Sam & cat, iCarly, Haunted Hathaways! Etc... I'm sure you know what gets played! Im just saying from only 3 years ago up until now you guys barely play cartoons and when you do it's quite late for kids to be watching! My daughter adores Sponge Bob! Invader Rabbits! Fairly Odd Parents etc... I love Invader Zim and hey Arnold etc.... Is it possible you could make this change by all means keep the TV shows but make more cartoons play that's what Nickelodeon use to be about? Wasn't it? Sorry to be a pain we just get bored!

Recently I've noticed that Nick at night and TV land are airing the same exact TV shows at the same time. These shows include Hot in Cleveland and Younger. Both extremely inapropriate for children (mine are 8 and 9) clearly. I understand that they are airing late in the evening, but I feel these shows should not air on Nick at nite. My kids do watch full house and occasionally Fresh prince on Bel Aire but I feel those are border line family friendly. It would be nice if kids can have at least 2 channels (disney and nick) that they can turn on if they wake up from being sick or are up late for some other reason. Yes I should be aware of what their watching at all times, but at their age I don't mind them turning on the TV and putting one of the "kid" channels on. I'm pretty upset that they can't even do that anymore.

We are watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air. It goes off at 10 o'clock. After the commercial break, Younger comes on. The opening scene is a 40 year old women and a 20's something man going at it like jack rabbits. There is sex, lingerie, oral sex, intercourse. Why is this rated TV-14 and WHY is it on a childrens network? This is Sex and the City on Nickelodeon. I'm Furious. What if my daughter was on spring break and saw this after watching Full House followed by Fresh Prince. RIDICULOUS.

Where is Skye and Everest from paw patrol on/in your merch!? My lil girl notices! If we find a bag, shirt, toy ect. and Skye isn't with the group she will put it down and not want it. This happens 90% of the time. No Skye or Everest! Not to sound petty but what does that teach the lil girls/kids? Trust me we both notice! This is America and you can market to whoever you'd like. I will do like wise and boycott until WE see a change. Wake up NICK!! Girls watch paw patrol too! ~ an angry dad

Piper from Henry Danger is an awful child. She is a bully, and all she does is scream! She is the antithesis of a role model. I am so disappointed that Nickelodeon finds this behavior humorous. My children will no longer be allowed to watch this program, as I am blocking it with parental controls.

I hate your programming these days. Why can't you produce more original shows that are like your shows from the 1990s? I see that Craig Bartlett's upcoming show Sky Rat has some potential, I wish it has the quality and feel of shows from the 1990s. I also want you to bring back your old logo and show more reruns of your classic shows on the main network.

Why is my 17 year old special child watching a show on your network about a "TEEN MOM". I find that this is in no way appropriate for this network. If you want to turn you station into a reality show network and encourage children to get pregnant then you have found a way. I don't even like watching something like this as a 35+ year old adult. Find another show that promotes learning and development of the mind or something that show a fake family not this slop. I should not have to listen to the beeps on this network where words that are not allowed are censored. Please find other more worth while shows to air.

Hey! I wonder why you're still using your KCA logo for Nick @ Nite! I wish it would go away forever! You need to cancel NickMOM on Nick Jr. b/c that is way too inappropriate to be on a preschool channel and change your logos back to your originals! That is why I refused to watch your channel for March 2015!

In the Teens Choice Awards somebody was challenged to do 'The Seven Second Challenge' where you set somebody to do a certain task and they have to do it in seven seconds. I don't know if the challenge was claimed to be fully Nickelodeon's idea because I didn't watch the actual show; if because of that sentence right there you can turn everything on me I would just like to say in the nicest way possible: "Shut the hell up.". The Seven Second challenge was originally made by YouTuber: AmazingPhil (Phil Lester) with the company of his friend: KickThePJ (PJ Liguori) to do the actual challenge with him; I was informed by my social media sites and AmazingPhil's flatmate Danisnotonfire (Dan Howell) that you on the Teens Choice Awards you did the Seven Second Challenge without giving Mr. Lester any form of credit- and I find that horrible. So I know that the actual challenge wasn't copyrighted and nobody can give you a mark or something but- if you look at any YouTuber doing the challenge they give credit to the person who made the challenge in the first place and most of the time its by Phil Lester. I have no idea if you can correct yourselves with this but if you can I strongly hope that if you can- please do so, and not take credit for the Seven Second Challenge so little kids think that it was entirely your idea and think that Mr. Lester copied you when his video was uploaded on March 19th, of 2014.

My daughter is 5. Her and I were watching full house before bed. Only to have had the commercial for the Lazarus effect come on not only one time but 6 times during a short time period. It's why I am now writing to make a complaint and to let nick know that channel will no longer be played on any of the TVs in my home!

My 3 and 6 year old daughters where watching Dora and it ended at 7 pm. All of a sudden Adventures of Old Christine comes on and starts talking about penis's and pubic hair. I ran to get the remote so fast to change it. I cannot believe I have to worry about a preschool station airing adult shows at 7pm!!!!!!!! What the heck is wrong with you nick jr?? Why are you airing filthy Nick mom on a preschool station? What adult watches Nick mom anyways!! Get RID of Nick mom on your network!!!

The Victorious Christmas commercial where they're all singing and dancing seems a little inappropriate... Victoria Justice's shorts are extremely short. You do know that young girls watch that show, they're going to emulate what they see. I've got younger sisters who watch that show religiously, the last thing I need is for them to be dressing in booty shorts and dancing like a slut. As if little girls singing all the time and begging their parents to send them to an expensive art school wasn't annoying enough...

Those female santa outfits are another thing, I'm sure you saw Mean Girls. If Victoria Justice wants to dance like that she can do it off a channel thats main audience is children. I mean I think she's a decent gal, the last thing I want to see is her pulling a Miley Cyrus and becoming a disgusting wreck. Geh, the way she was touching her legs was far too sexy for Nick. Anyway, I'd like to not see it anymore, but I doubt that'll be happening. Man, put up a less provocative version maybe? Jeez.

Hello my name is Haley D'Arcangelo. I have watch Nickelodeon all my life but for the past 2 weeks my television program hasn't been playing and my friends and I are VERY disappointed. One a week on Thursday nights at 8:00 I watch House Of Anubis, but like i said it hasn''t been on for 2 weekls!!! I looked it up on the internet and all the other HOA fans or all the other websites have no explanaition. SO that is why I am now complaining to you workers at Nickelodeon. All th House Of Anubis fans would really appreciate a good explanaition! I would also like to know why the unshone episodes are not appearing on television or the telivision guides but are appearing on On Demand??? I would be REALLY unhappy to find out this is happening to other shows on this channel. So please fix this and make sure it doesn't happen to any other shows!
Thank you for your time,

The commercial for kids choice award shooting something out of a bar emulating Katie Perry is soooo inappropriate I was watching spongebob with my 5 & 14 year old boys and my 14 years said that is so inappropriate this is a kids channel I was shocked . It needs to be removed who oversees these things they need to be fired & get a new line in work.

A young man with two cans of whipped cream held as if they were squirting breasts was shown on the Nick channel. The commercial was offensive, tasteless and inappropriate. Unfortunately, my eight year olds son caught sight of this of this atrocious behavior Please have Nick remove this commercial before more children and families are exposed to this.

I am very disappointed in the new feature "Nick Mom". I usually allow my 3 year old to watch a show before bed time at about 7:30. I found it inappropriate to say the least when I turned on Nick Jr, to see a mother talking about sex then going to get a tattoo. I realize on the east coast it plays at 10:00 PM, however here on the west coast my children are being subjected to this filth at 7:00 PM. I do not see why, by any stretch of the imagination, anyone would find this appropriate for a child on a children’s network. Nick Jr has always been our favorite channel but as of late I am disgusted by what you have chosen to show during hours when most children are still awake. I believe this "Nick Mom" is completely unnecessary. There are plenty of stations for mothers (like myself) to enjoy at night. This station should be entirely for children as it was in the past.
Sincerely, Mother of a 3 year old

That new nick studio 10 shit sucks ass. I suggest you get that crap off the air because a) its not funny b) the kids are obnoxious and c) it in interrupts probably the funniest parts during the show that is currently on the air. Like for instance I'm watching spongebob and there's an "announcement" that really is either just a deer standing there or another crappy thing. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say nick studio 10 SUUUCKKKSS and needs to be taken of the air as soon as possible. Thank you for your time. Bitch

I want to say that I and many others are very displeased by Nickelodeon's decision to interrupt Nick Jr's 24 hour a day schedule to put on Nickmom. I find it very inappropriate to put adult content, that can get vulgar, on a children's network. Nickmom may have been a good idea as a channel of it's own, but just not on my children's T.V. Please consider removing this content from this station, please!!!! Please remove nickmom from nickjr at once or I will stop watching along with lots of other people who hate the show and think it's terrible for children!

The video/commerical of Victorious singing with extremely short shorts where yo u can see the bottom of her behind and the back up singers are wearing ADULT Christmas lingere. This is very unappropriate for a CHILDRENS channel. I am deeply disappointed that you would such filth to play on a channel that is for children. Your also sending a very bad message to teens!! Your approving and encouraging them to show their bodies. And to wear provocitive clothing. My daughter is 3 not 20. I hope you will take this seriously. I will no longer allow her to watch your channel (and she loves SpongeBob and Dora) but its not age appropriate. Until this matter is taken care of and you carefully choose better age appropriate clothing you have lost a customer!!

I dont understand why there was a commercial for the BET music awards would be advertised on a children"s station ? Are you guys targeting this age group for a very inappropriate thing for kids to watch from the musical lyrics to behavior potrayed in the videos and on this station. I also am upset that the BET channel is so close to the childrens channels . Im sure someone is aware of the things that are shown on this station and dont think its appropriate! I will be talking actions to get this problem resolved . I definitely do not like the direction your station is going in?
