Unlike last year, where they did nothing, this year TeenNick’s The ‘90s Are All That block has some plans for Halloween.

TeenNick’s The ‘90s Are All That block is finally doing something different! Starting Monday, December 23rd, the block is shifting to a rotating line-up for three weeks.
After spending the last six weeks in various marathon mode (the past five of which have been a single show each week), TeenNick’s The ‘90s Are All That block settles into a new schedule starting next Monday, February 4.
The changes include the United States premiere of Life With Boys (a Canadian sitcom that Nick acquired earlier this year) airing Friday, December 28 at 9 p.m. ET.
