GLHS Student’s Favorite 2000’s Shows


Megan Reynaert, Social Media Chair

The 2000s could be referred to as one of the best eras for TV show networks such as Disney and Nickelodeon. The shows that came out in this iconic time range could arguably be described as the best these networks have ever produced. Everyone has their favorite tv shows that they will watch over and over again. Shows like Jessie, Good Luck Charlie, Ben 10, Phineas and Ferb, etc, shaped this generation’s childhood. You would be hard-pressed to find a teenager that doesn’t know what these shows are all about. 

GLHS Students were asked about their favorite network, as well as their favorite tv show from the 2000s. The various networks all have their own specialties, Disney being the most popular network with 125 votes or 59.5%, and Nickelodeon following close behind with 121 votes or 57.6%. The network with the least amount of votes or GLHS students’ least favorite network was Nick JR. with only 6 votes or 2.9%. When asked what their favorite TV show was, there was a multitude of different answers from GLHS students. A couple of the most common being SpongeBob Square Pants, ICarly, and Hannah Montana. Recently, ICarly was added to Netflix, but only the first two seasons. ICarly ran from September 8th, 2007 to November 23rd, 2012. 

Most of these shows from the 2000s are no longer producing new episodes, much to this generations’ sadness. Shows like Jessie ended up coming out with spin-offs such as Bunk´d. Many people rewatch Jessie in remembrance of Cameron Boyce who, as most should know by now, passed away on July 6th, 2019, much to everyone’s surprise. Some of the biggest names in the music and tv industry today got their start on networks such as Disney and Nickelodeon. Zendaya, Drake Bell, Ariana Grande, Sabrina Carpenter, and Zac Efron, to name a few, have all marketed themselves to be so much more than the star of a 2000’s kids show. These people and these shows shaped so many teenagers today and their childhoods. All of the nights staying up to watch one more episode when all parents wanted was to go to bed, waking up early to catch the first episode on Disney, all of these things shaped us. Gen Z grew up with these actors and actresses. Now as we’re in high school, preparing for college, we can look back on these moments with these characters and smile.
