SpongeBob SquarePantsThis January, possibly in gearing up for the new SpongeBob movie, Nickelodeon will actually show fewer episodes of SquarePants per day – just four. In its place will be more live-action series, including new episodes of Every Witch Way, Max & Shred, Henry Danger, Nicky Ricky Dicky and Dawn, The Thundermans and the new series Bella and the Bulldogs. Also, new episodes of TMNT return – and there’s yet another day change!

Fist up on weekdays, Rabbids Invasion moves up to 7am with Fairly OddParents at 7:30. SpongeBob stays at 8am, followed by the preschool series in their recently changed timeslots from 8:30am-2pm. The new preschool show Little Charmers will premiere Monday, January 12 at 12pm, moving Dora and Friends down to 12:30pm.

SpongeBob moves back up to its normal spot from 2-3:30pm, followed by Fairly OddParents at 3:30. iCarly gets a weekday strip at 4pm, followed by next-day encores of Every Witch Way at 4:30pm. New series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn and Henry Danger also get weekday strips at 5pm and 5:30, respectively. From 6-7pm is an hour of The Thundermans. Every Witch Way is new each weeknight at 7pm, with Max & Shred returning with new episodes at 7:30.

On Saturday nights, new football-themed comedy Bella and the Bulldogs premieres January 17 at 8pm with an hour-long episode. After that, Bella moves into the night at 9pm, bumping Thundermans down to 9:30. The Haunted Hathaways will currently be off the line-up.

Lastly, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns with weekly premieres – now back on Sunday mornings at 11am. After a fall run back on Friday nights, the show heads back to Sundays starting January 11.

In Nick at Nite news, Everybody Loves Raymond joins the line-up, airing every night from ~12:12am-1:24am. That’ll bump How I Met Your Mother down to ~1:24-2:36am, with four episodes of George Lopez running from ~2:36-4:57am. Mother will end the night with two more episodes until 6am.
