I know we tend to focus more on the bad than the good but i do know that nickelodeon has made some terrible things (any live action shows, a lot of spongebob episodes, One coarse meal to name one.) But we know the gems it has (legend of korra and it's ability to start anywhere any be able to understand the story, Sand castles in the sand and some other spongebob episodes i can't remember)

We've witnessed beauty sure not bawl your eyes out but there's been good comedy without the jokes being from people throwing insults. (this is my first debate)

Nickelodeon should not die off. It provides entertainment for thousands of children every day, plus it is a rich site for past cartoons. The popularity of Spongebob only makes the "horrible" episodes amazing in a child's POV.

First off you chose pro meaning yes it should
Just because it's a kids show doesn't mean there shouldn't be some semblance of quality and that'd mean the episode where Mr.Krabs drives plankton to suicide is something we should expose children to? Also in the words of TheMysteriousMrEnter "this is just for kids isn't an argument" I know this is a mentality so it's a bridge you'll have to cross yourself. Back to my standing on nickelodeon the answer is maybe if it's fine tuned a bit it can stay if nickelodeon learns it's mistakes. If it stays oblivious nickelodeon will crash and fall and become nothing more than a memory. (also how is it a rich site for past cartoons?) Something popular isn't always good Spongebob being "popular" doesn't mean that all children won't see through that and see the actual good episodes and the bad episodes. Don't get me wrong Nickelodeon is IMO better at making sitcoms than Disney. (also don't quit early or people might not want to debate with you.)

(where Mr.Krabs drives plankton to suicide is something we should expose children to? ) Children exposed to that? What about modern American television? Full of violence and sexual themes. Video games are even worst. (If it stays oblivious nickelodeon will crash and fall and become nothing more than a memory) Oblivious? When was Nickelodeon oblivious? (Something popular isn't always good Spongebob being "popular" doesn't mean that all children won't see through that and see the actual good episodes and the bad episodes.) Yes, but only as few. Have you ever heard of children being critics of their favorite TV show? No. End of story.

I believe that Nickelodeon should not die off because it is a very popular TV network that provides entertainment to children, adolescents, and parents around the globe. It has a wide variety of TV shows that encourage kids to do great things with their life and live as happy as possible. Yes, their are certain comments that TV shows tend to say that may offend someone. But they always come around and fix the mistake he or she might have done wrong. Disney Channel is a network that used to get sky high reviews in the early 2000's. Now the network is about basic schoolgirl problems or bizarre shows that do not benefit anyone. Nickelodeon has stuck to it's roots and have shown incredible progress! Keep up the good vibes Nick and a big thank you for making my childhood amazing.
