UPDATE: I talked things over with the head of the "Rise and Fall of Nickelodeon" group on Facebook, the people I accused of taking joy in people losing their jobs, and it turns out it was a big misunderstanding. He and I actually agree on a lot of things Nick is going through and he was only directing his schadenfreude at the higher-ups of Viacom, the real bad guys who make that poor decisions that affect the hardworking artists. On top of that, he actually does want to see Nickelodeon improve; He just seems mean because he uses a "tough love" approach. In short, he's really a good guy with good intentions and, like him in this update he wrote, I'm sorry for this mess. However, I'm keeping this journal up (with a few alterations) to let people know about a kinder approach to helping out the artists of Nickelodeon. For those of you who are interested in the tough love method I mentioned, try giving that "Rise and Fall of Nickelodeon" group a look.

I've heard for a while that Nickelodeon's ratings have been low lately, but it wasn't until just now that I read up on how shockingly low they were. No, they're not at Discovery Family's level of low, but they're definitely at crisis levels.

According to the Washington Post, low ratings across all Viacom channels have led to the announcement of layoffs and $785M in expenses.

It's unknown how many layoffs there will be or what apparently under-performing shows could be written off or abandoned, but it's likely that a few Nick shows and employees could be let go in the near future. Many employees at Nick, from artists to writers, are kind and talented folk who had nothing to do with the boneheaded business moves that Viacom makes. I've seen a lot of them on Tumblr and other social media and they love their jobs. The thought of them losing all of that because of the incompetent heads of their parent company is just sad.

Despite all the hiccups they've had, I still believe Nickelodeon has the ability to shape up and become respectable again. So far this year, they've shown that they're still capable of making good decisions and having good animated output, such as the recent SpongeBob movie, the consistently entertaining TMNT series, and their newest potential hit Harvey Beaks. Let's not forget its promising plans for the future, like Pig Goat Banana Cricket, The Loud House, Sky Rat, and a new season of SpongeBob that has creator Stephen Hillenburg back on the writing staff. All of this truly makes me think that Nick could get back on track, but it can only happen if the company's in good enough health to do so.

So let's try being compassionate and show support for the good parts of Nickelodeon by doing some of the following:
  • Show your support towards the various talented artists that currently work at Nick. Many of them are on Tumblr and regularly draw really nice things. Some likes and reblogs are enough to spread some love.
  • If you know anyone who owns a Nielsen box and has kids, ask them to tune into to Nick more often. Watching a show of theirs doesn't help ratings unless they have one of those boxes.
  • Talk about the current shows on Nick you actually like on social media like Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and others. Some networks are going by social buzz rather than ratings to know which shows to keep supporting. The more buzz, the better!
For those of you who feel like calling out Viacom on their mistakes, remember these things:
  • Don't trash Nickelodeon or Viacom as a whole. Instead, direct your aggression towards the higher-ups that are actually responsible for doing whatever you're mad about. Do proper research so you know who to be mad at.
  • When writing letters or any kind of messages to the company expressing your displeasure with them, don't be rude or insult them. Simply provide constructive criticism that tell what they can do to better themselves. Either that or just show support for whatever they currently have that you still like.
Now let's get out there, do our part, and keep our fingers crossed that Nickelodeon gets back on its feet.
  • Mood: Remorse
Remember when Nicktoons characters made appearances during the Kids' Choice Awards? I have no idea if it's happen this year (probably not, since it hasn't happened since 2011), but if it doesn't you can fill that gap with new episodes during this weekend! This includes a long-awaited return, a sudden series finale, and a highly-anticipated series premiere!

On Saturday morning at 11 AM EST, after over a decade, The Fairly OddParents comes to an end with its final two episodes, which I've affectionately dubbed "The Final OddPair." In the first one, "Fairly Old Parent," Poof gets promoted from fairy godbrother to full-fledged fairy godparent, but somehow gets assigned to Mr. Crocker's mom (I'm guessing because little kids and really old people aren't all that different). After that, in the ironically named "The Fairy Beginning," the gang must save Cosmo's job as a godparent by going through his memories and learning why he never graduated high school.

Later that night at 9:30 PM EST, right after the Kids' Choice Awards, you'll get to see a sneak peek of the newest Nicktoon, Harvey Beaks, before its official premiere the day after! In this episode, "Pe-Choo!," Harvey tries his best to be a troublemaker in hope of getting banned from swimming in a lake, like his friends Fee and Foo. This 11-minute episode is actually a reanimated version of the pilot, so it makes sense that it'll be the very first to air.

Then on Sunday at 7 PM EST, right before Harvey Beaks officially premieres, you'll get the first new SpongeBob episode in a whole year. In "Yeti Krabs," Mr. Krabs tells the made-up-on-the-spot story of a fearsome yeti that preys on lazy employees, in hopes of getting more work out of Squidward.

Right after that at 7:15 is (as stated twice already) the official premiere of Harvey Beaks, starting off with a new episode. In "The Spitting Tree," Harvey climbs the tallest tree in the woods, but is much more scared of being up there than his friends are. This will be followed by an encore of "Pe-Choo!," the sneak peek episode.

This looks to be one of the biggest weekends for Nicktoons in a long time, so I'm excited. And after Harvey Beaks airs, feel free to use this journal entry as a place of discussion about it.

RULES:

-In terms of fan art, I can only draw characters and things from shows and franchises I'm familiar with. However, I will occasionally do art of something that's nearly a complete mystery to me, if it's not too complicated and/or I like the challenge. If you're not sure what franchises I know about, just ask me about the one you have in mind.

-NO bashing of any franchise. (unless I hate it too)

-I won't always do OC art, but don't be afraid to ask and don't be disappointed if I refuse. I'll do my own OCs without question though.

-There are a number of fetishes I won't do, including but not limited to: Expansion (breasts, butts, and muscles are exceptions if they're not too obscenely big), inflation, vore, bubbles, and most furries (as an example, Kitty Katswell is fine). I'm currently on the fence about Yaoi and Yuri stuff.

-NO VISIBLE NUDITY... Unless you're fine with it being only on my blog. (bare butts and boobs are fine, though)

-NO BLOOD OR GORE, unless it's very light.

Just remember that you all get only one commission at a time each. You also have to pay before I start on it, but inform me when you have payed. The PayPal account to pay is rh_ledbetter@yahoo.com, but remember that my real email address is tlrledbetter@gmail.com if you want to talk to me.

So Mr. Rise and Fall posted this: m.facebook.com/story.php?story…

Admittedly, he does sound genuine and makes good points, but it still reeks of "I'm right and everyone else is wrong".

I talked to him and he definitely does NOT seem that way. He said himself that he uses "tough love" because he actually does want to see the channel improve.
