Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids and families, has today announced the launch of a brand-new Nickelodeon channel called Nick Sr.!
Nick Sr., scheduled to launch later today, will feature a wide range of programming featuring an emphasis on the issues which are important to the older generation.
Nick Sr. will channel share with Nick Jr. and will broadcast between the hours of 5:00pm and 10:00pm ET/PT everyday.
Nick Snr. will also be the home of Nickelodeon's brand-new original animated series Ol'Bob SquarePants and Even More All Grown Up!. A spin-off from megahit SpongeBob SquarePants, Ol'Bob OldPants will feature the popular residents of Bikini Bottom in their senior years. In Even More All Grown Up!, a spin-off from Rugrats and All Grown Up!, Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica and the Rugrats gang are back in all new misadventures!
In the debut episode of Ol'Bob SquarePants, 'Retirement Sponge', it's the eve of SpongeBob's long overdue retirement from the Krusty Krab, but Mr. Krabs doesn't want to pay SpongeBob a pension, so thinks of plans to keep SpongeBob working at the diner. Then, SpongeBob and Patrick try to fix Squidward's chairlift with disastrous results in 'Rocket Squid', and in 'Tired Squid', Squidward's plans to relax at Shady Shoals are threatened when SpongeBob & Patrick turn up and nearly get him kicked out!
To compliment the schedule, Nickelodeon has also acquired the format rights to the hit BBC sitcom Last of the Summer Wine, with a US remake slated for broadcast later this year.
