Nickelodeon announced yesterday that it has set an Oct. 1, 2012, launch date for its new NickMom comedy programming block, to air nightly from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on its Nick Jr. cable channel.
An online companion site and blog already is up and running at www.NickMom.com. In addition to link to the individual TV series for the channel, the online site will include videos, photos, blog posts and games.
“NickMom is a unique TV and digital destination that gives moms permission to wind down from the day and laugh out loud at the shared experiences of motherhood,” said Bronwen O’Keefe, NickMom’s Senior Vice President. “From the comedy of our long- and short-form programming, to the engagement our web site provides, NickMom has the heart and humor of Nickelodeon, but with a specific mom point of view.”
It’s all comedy-centric for mothers to enjoy after their childrens’ bedtimes.
