Week 6 Recap Of The 1990s TV Draft: Nickelodeon Dominates

Week 6 Recap Of The 1990s TV Draft: Nickelodeon Dominates

For the full sha-bang of the 1990s TV Draft, listen to Episode 18Episode 19 , Episode 20 & Episode 21, Episode 22 & Episode 23 of The Keystone Cast.

Note: In writing this post I inadvertently murdered the Week 4 recap post (I "edited" when I should have "duplicated"), so if you go to try look for it on the site, it no longer exists. It's also like James Van Der Beek never existed. Sad!

Second Note: My all-in-one HP Pavilion PC just died on me so no fancy graphic with the 90s Draft logo and fun TV crossover - just Don Johnson arm wrestling Cheech Marin. R.I.P. HP; four to five years is a good run for your shitty manufacturing.

My body wasn't in attendance for week 6 but that doesn't mean I didn't clean house. My buddy Kevin subbed in for me and got the picks I wanted and (despite my request) "Big Oil" Kev went against one of my picks to grab up a comedy legend before drafting another. The rest of the draft was taken over by Nickelodeon and we had another illegal pick - oh, boy, let's take a look.

Hey Arnold! - Nickelodeon (Zack)


Hey football head! Four out of the nine picks this week were Nickelodeon (that's almost half for you math nerds out there). And Marcus's Grace pick wasn't so graceful as she fails to make the 90s cut considering the show's majority of it's run was in the 2000s. Bummer tunes for him, but there's rules to this shim sham game and my degenerate brother wasn't playing by them. He'll get a replacement pick next week. So here's how thing stand after this week:
