Nick at Nite (stylized as nick@nite) is an American nighttime programming block that broadcasts over the channel space of the children's network Nickelodeon. Launched in 1985, the block originally aired older television programs from the 1950s to early 1970s, but now mainly broadcasts reruns of syndicated comedy series from the early 1990s to mid-2010s.

This was an early logo that was proposed to be used for the block while it was being developed. The logotype is the same as Nickelodeon's 1981 "pinball" logo, which meant that the two services would have had similar branding upon Nick at Nite's launch (though a completely different logo would ultimately be used for Nick at Nite after Nickelodeon rebranded in October 1984). However, the two would not share similar logos until 2007.

Launched:  July 1, 1985

Nick at Nite was launched on July 1, 1985, with a logo system similar to the one Nickelodeon had launched a year earlier, albeit involving different colored shapes. The block's original branding was designed by Corey McPherson Nash (formerly Corey & Co.) for Fred/Alan, Inc., both of whom had developed Nickelodeon's rebrand.[1]

1992-2002

In 1992, the logo was modified slightly, with the drop shadow eliminated, and the "at" being redone in a different typeface. Until 2002, this logo was used in tandem with the 1985 version, which remained in use via the set of network IDs that had been introduced in 1992.

Launched:  June 2002

In June 2002, Nick at Nite introduced an updated logo in network promos before it fully replaced the 1992 logo three months later. It kept the basic elements of its two predecessors, but only a circle was used instead of multiple shapes for the background, an "@" symbol was used in place of "at", and the remaining lettering was modified.

2006–2007

Launched:  December 31, 2006

On December 31, 2006, the logo's color was changed to orange to match with it's sister network Nickelodeon.

2007–2009

Launched:  August 31, 2007

On August 31, 2007, Nick at Nite overhauled its logo to feature a version of the 2007 Nickelodeon "splat" logo in the shape of a crescent moon. The Balloon typeface was also incorporated into the logo, and the "@" symbol again written as "at". This effectively integrated the Nickelodeon branding into Nick at Nite for the first time.

2009–present

2009–2012

Launched:  September 28, 2009

On September 28, 2009, all four Nickelodeon channels in the United States were rebranded. Nick at Nite also adopted a new logo based on Nickelodeon's new wordmark logo, the second such used on-air to be explicitly aligned with Nickelodeon's on-air identity (the rebrand occurred at 6:00am, before Nick itself rebranded). The words "@" and "Nite" were in two shades of blue, as if it was a transition from "day" (orange), to "night" (blue). Also, the "at" was again reverted to an "@" symbol. As of 2012, this is still being used as an alternative logo. It was mistakenly used on a few instances in 2019, when Nick at Nite accidently used its former split-screen credits alongside the newer one.

2012–present

On October 6, 2012, the entire wordmark was made orange in order to be more aligned with the Nickelodeon brand.
