Nickelodeon Junior, or often called, “Nick Jr.”, is a very popular American digital cable and satellite television channel and network. This channel came out shortly after Nickelodeon did when it became apparent that a TV channel was needed that distributed quality television to kids between the ages of two to six years of age. Nick Jr. took off from the get go and has been wowing us with great shows for our youngsters ever since.

Nick Jr. and all of its various shows and programs are run by the Viacom Kids & Family Group, an essential unit of the infamous Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom, the channel’s ultimate owner, operator, and mother company. The channel today, which is and has been aimed at younger children in their toddler age and slightly older, features a pleasant mix of originally produced programming and TV shows. Nick Jr. also showcases series previously and concurrently aired on the, “Nick: The Smart Place to Play” segment. Nick Jr. will also run shows that were once aired on Nickelodeon, or more, “young kid”, versions of the same shows. Due to the ever increasing and always popular Nickelodeon block, Nick Jr. regularly announces on air as, “the Nick Jr. channel” to avert confusion between the two programs, especially during critical times of the day where both Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. are both carrying preschool programming in tandem.

Some of the most popular shows on Nick Jr. are:
