SNICK (short for Saturday Night Nickelodeon) was a two-hour programming block on the American cable television network Nickelodeon, geared toward general audiences. The block ran from August 15, 1992 until January 29, 2005, and was aired on Saturdays starting at 8 p.m and ending at 10 p.m. ET. In 2005, SNICK was revamped as the Saturday night edition of TEENick.
SNICK debuted on August 15, 1992 with Clarissa Explains It All, The Ren and Stimpy Show, and the official premieres of Roundhouse and Are You Afraid of the Dark?. In 1994, All That and The Secret World of Alex Mack premiered on the block, replacing Clarissa and Roundhouse, which had both ended. Starting from 1994 to the end of the (original) SNICK in 1999, the schedule had varied by scheduling television programs in different time slots or removing them from the schedule to make room for other programs. On occasion, the block would run special programming in place of the normal line-up (for instance, the December 16, 1995 broadcast was a special Christmas-themed event featuring the Christmas episodes of Doug, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, and Ren & Stimpy).
On October 16, 1999, SNICK was revamped as Snick House, which was hosted by Nick Cannon. Each week, a celebrity or music group made an appearance, and viewers could go online to Nick.com and vote for their favorite Snick House Video Picks and the music video with the most votes would be played during Snick House.
On July 8, 2000, the Snick House block was discontinued and reverted back to the original SNICK name, albeit with updated graphics and branding. On July 7, 2001, Nickelodeon replaced SNICK's normal timeslot with Nick Flicks, which consisted of various 90-minute specials. This period was referred to as the "Elevator Music" era, and lasted until January 12, 2002, and again from June 29 to September 7, 2002.
On January 19, 2002, SNICK was relaunched with a new lineup featuring returning series The Amanda Show, as well as a revival of All That. Taina and The Nick Cannon Show were also featured as well. There were bumpers that now featured stills of various SNICK stars with a SNICK "talk bubble" above them, with elevator music playing in the background.
From September 2002 to January 2005, SNICK featured a series of "On-Air Dare" segments featuring the cast of All That. All but three members every week would pull a lever to determine the night's "dare", which one of the three cast members would have to do so. The three cast members would then have to pull the lever to determine that night's "dare." The other three cast members from All That in each segment would then have to be placed in a glass cylinder. This segment was equal to that of Fear Factor. For example, these dares included: apple bobbling in a toilet, taking a bath in a tub full of raw eggs, eating a couple of gallons of blue cheese, and so on and so forth. During this era, the SNICK line-ups went through some major transitions, including the phasing out of The Nick Cannon Show (which ran from September 2002 to June 2003), and the inclusion of Romeo!, from September 2003 to January 2005.
On September 4, 2004, SNICK was quietly rebranded as Saturday Night Nickelodeon, featuring new bumpers created by design company Beehive that had an orange splat morphing into a show's character. However, the SNICK name was still used during live on-air segments. On February 5, 2005, Saturday Night Nickelodeon was replaced by the Saturday night edition of TEENick until that block's full closure on February 2, 2009.
During the week of December 26-30 of 2011, TeenNick aired the shows from the SNICK lineups from 1995 to 1999 as specially-themed broadcasts of The '90s Are All That.
On August 17, 2013, SNICK returned to The 90's Are All That, in which it was dubbed as "SNICK-iversary", in honor of the original block's 21st anniversary. That night, TeenNick ran one episode each from the shows ithe original 1992 lineup of SNICK was aired, with the strange exception of Roundhouse, which had All That appearing its place.
In August 2017, to celebrate the block's 25th anniversary, NickSplat (the successor to The '90s Are All That) aired SNICK's line-ups each Saturday night.
