The Best 2000s Nickelodeon Shows That Defined The Decade

Updated July 31, 2020 66.4k votes 6.9k voters 186.5k views46 items

List RulesVote up your favorite Nickelodeon TV Series that aired from 2000-2009.

From The Fairly OddParents to Drake & Josh, these are the best 2000s Nickelodeon shows, according to your votes. Although cartoons dominate the list, there were plenty of funny 2000s live action comedies from Nickelodeon, including Zoey 101 and Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. The talented Miranda Cosgrove helped to make iCarly one of the biggest hits for Nick in the 2000s as well (who could forget the show that introduced the world to a new version of food fusion in the spaghetti taco?)

Before becoming the host of America's Got Talent, Nick Cannon appeared on two popular 2000s Nickelodeon shows – All That and The Nick Cannon Show. You may remember Nick's slate of '90s live shows and cartoons, but we're willing to bet you've forgot about a few underrated 2000s Nick shows, like The Brothers Garcia and Caitlin's Way.

This list features all the best Nick shows from 2000 to 2009, so vote up your favorites and please add a title if it's not here already!
