Posted on

If you’re a twentysomething who’s been jonesing for repeats of All That and Clarissa Explains It All, then this news is for you: EW can report exclusively that starting this fall, TeenNick will dust off old faves like Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, The Amanda Show (inset), All That, and Clarissa and air them in a new midnight-to-2 a.m. programming block dubbed (appropriately enough) The ’90s Are All That. The tween cabler came up with the idea after seeing the huge interest in its early programming on social-media sites. In fact, Facebook pages dedicated to the network’s shows from the ’90s have a total of 9 million fans. ”At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11,” Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick, tells EW. ”It was groundbreaking and, for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives.
