Nickelodeon’s Figure It Out Premiers As A Hit
Nickelodeon is trying to find a new sweet spot to compete with Disney Channel even more and that means more original programming. So they recently added a revival of an old game show called Figure It Out. The original edition ran on Nickelodeon back in the 1990s . The show has done well in terms of viewers, with the average of 13 million viewers during the premier week! Nickelodeon just released a press release breaking down the numbers and sharing the good news with fans. You will find the press release down below if you wish to see the numbers broken down and to find out more about the new game show on the network.
I am going to say that I see no reason for them to have a game show on the network, but it is a nice change of pace. They clearly have a fan base and I doubt that will shrink for them anytime soon. I am not sure if many of the original fans will return to watch this edition, but I do think we can expect to hear a lot about. I am personally not sure why they decided to bring it back on air, but they did and it is paying off for them right now. We shall see if this will top off some of the newer original shows or not!
What do you think about it? Is it fun or boring? I was never much for game shows, but I do think this one can appeal to the whole family and that is great news. I just wished that we could know a bit more than we do right now about the series.
