History

Nickelodeon first launched the NickMom brand with a humor website in 2011.[1] On October 1, 2012, NickMom became a four-hour nighttime block on the Nick Jr. channel.

During the course of its time on the air, NickMom programming aired on Nick Jr. between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m., 7 nights a week. This was acknowledged in Nick Jr.'s nightly sign-off message, which explained that Nick Jr. would resume its programming at 2:00 a.m. ET the next morning. NickMom's start time shifted to 9:55 p.m. ET on October 23, 2012 to add extra interstitials before the official 10:00 p.m. start.

End of block

On September 9, 2015, the block's social media accounts announced that the NickMom programming block and website would go off-air and offline by the end of September 2015.[2] The programming block ended at 2 a.m. Eastern in the early morning of September 28 with an airing of the film Guarding Tess, three days shy of its third anniversary. For the first time since its launch, the block's sign-off bumper was not aired, and the movie instead faded right into a Yo Gabba Gabba! episode. Repeats of Nick Jr. shows filled the four hours vacated by NickMom, whose former website was redirected to Nickelodeon's site for parents.

Scheduling controversy

The block's scheduling caused some controversy. Since Nick Jr. did not have a second network feed for the Pacific Time Zone, the Eastern feed was used by default, meaning that NickMom programming started at earlier hours in some areas. Some parents found the NickMom shows inappropriate to be played during the daytime. The scheduling problem was solved in mid-February 2013, when Nickelodeon launched a second Pacific Time Zone-based feed for the Nick Jr. channel.
