Nickelodeon USA is set to significantly reduce the amount of hours its NickRewind programming block, Nickelodeon's television destination for the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond, airs on TeenNick each night. Currently airing every night for seven hours between 11:00 p.m - 6:00 a.m. (ET/PT), beginning Monday, July 15, 2019, Nick will reduce NickRewind's broadcast hours to just two hours per night, airing between 4:02 a.m. - 6:00 a.m. (ET/PT) during the early hours of each morning.

In lieu of classic Nickelodeon programming, TeenNick will air more teen-centric programming from MTV and Awesomeness - a media company that focuses on creating original content for Gen Z which Viacom acquired in 2018.

Shows from MTV include: the teen reality series Made (weekdays at 12pm, 3pm and 8pm), the 2011 live-action supernatural drama Teen Wolf (starting with season 4; weeknights at 9pm), reality series My Super Sweet 16 (weeknights from 12-1am) and Parental Control (weeknights from 1-2am). The series will air as part of a 'MTV on TeenNick' style block.

Shows from AwesomenessTV, which have mostly ran on streaming services in the U.S. up until this point, includes: Betch, Guidance, Zac & Mia, Love Daily. All four series run weeknights from 10pm-midnight and encore from 2-4am as part of an "AwesomenessTV on TeenNick" branded programming block.
