Rock on, “Josh & Drake”!! Schnieder’s Bakery makes popular muffins.  Personally– I don’t think Zoey101 made that list because it’s rarely on and the seasons are short.  It’s only on TeenNick– weekends, and loads of repeats.  Meh. 

“Naked Brothers Band” continues its goofiness– empowering pre-tweens (ooo pre-tweens!) and giving them acknowledgement and a feeling of “empowerment” ~ seriously.  Watch the show. They run around like goofy adults, in weird psuedo-adult situations (love triangles, addiction to milk/pop, etc)… all done tactfully.  They remind me A LOT of the Electric Mayhem (aka, the muppet band with animal as the drummer, Floyd, Janice, and Dr. Teeth).  Jim “The Master” Henson should be smiling over Alex and Nat where ever he may be…

“Ned’s Declassified” is one of my uber-favorites.  Answering the day-old problems of junior high kids?  The humor & heart of this show is fantastic.  I’m glad they are now airing it daily.  This could actually beat out J&D for my fave nick show.

“WONDER PETS!” Ahhh! Cutest preschool show on television. Period. The Christmas Special just knocked my socks off.  “I’ll never have christmas in my soul again” — Hilariously melodramatic.  If I ever start a family, I’m buying up ALL of the DVD’s for this show and making my kids watch them. 

I’m not sure how “accurate” this sampling of kids & shows is… simply because Disney is not mentioned. I know that “Hannah Montana” and “The Suite Life of Zach and Cody” kick major bootie when it comes to kids.  I find it puzzling that there is not one Disney show mentioned…  And where is Cartoon Network & it’s “Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends”?!  That show is wicked.
