As of Tuesday morning, Doug has been the No. 1 Google trend, and Kenan & Kel and Teen Nick were trending on Twitter.

In announcing the decision to rebroadcast the shows, Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick, said earlier: "At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11. It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back.”

Going forward, the network will air '90s reruns from 12 a.m. EST to 4 a.m. ET from Monday to Sunday in a block called "The 90s Are All That." Shows include Doug, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, Clarissa Explains it All, Double Dare, The Ren & Stimpy Show and Salute Your Shorts.
