Nickelodeon will ride a programming surge into the KCA Sports awards. The net ended May as the top-rated kids’ network among all kids’ demographics, led by  the smash-hit The Loud House. Nick also recently renewed fan favorite SpongeBob SquarePants through 2019, and brought back four top-rated animated preschool series for additional seasons: PAW Patrol, Shimmer and Shine, Rusty Rivets and Nella the Princess Knight. The net also signed kid icon JoJo Siwa to a deal placing her throughout Nick properties. Just yesterday, the net bolstered its NOGGIN app with educational preschool videos.
