TeenNick is an American digital cable and satellite television channel formed from the merger of two former programming blocks for teenagers: TEENick on Nickelodeon and The N on Noggin. The channel features a mix of original programming, Nickelodeon-produced series, and acquired programs geared towards pre-teens and teenagers.

As of 2013, TeenNick is available to approximately 73,443,000 pay television households (64.31% of households with television) in the United States.

TV channel (2009-present)

TeenNick was the result of the 2009 reshuffling of the Nickelodeon networks, creating NickToons, TeenNick, and the Nick Jr. Channel. The font was similar to the N in the newest The N logo.

In July 2011, TeenNick began carrying programs originally filmed for high-definition broadcast in a letterboxed format, due to the absence of an HD simulcast feed of the channel. As all Nickelodeon-owned channels do, 16:9 content is carried in a stretched format to fill a 4:3 screen. All programs produced in SD are aired pillarboxed on high definition.

Longtime Nickelodeon personality Nick Cannon (declared in publicity materials as the "Chairman of TeenNick") had a presence on the network until 2020, along with new programming exclusive to the network. TeenNick's afterschool to primetime blocks have been divided into two distinct blocks:

  • 3pm-9pm ET - Programming meant for early to mid teenage audiences (13-16), mainly older originals from The N era, and acquired sitcoms and other teen dramas.
  • 9pm-10pm ET - Programming meant for older teen and young adult audiences (17 and up), including new episodes of TeenNick programming and acquired programming.
  • 10pm-6am ET - shows from the 90s to early mid-2000s, including iCarly.
