Who owns Nickelodeon?
Viacom International 'owns' Nickelodeon
Disney Channel is kinda more popular the Nickelodeon but i would say that Disney Channel has Nickelodeon beat!!! Dude No way. Disney may have Hannah Montana and all the other baby shows that are popular. But look at NIckelodeon you got SPONGEBOB Drake and Josh Degrassi and new bands like Big Time Rush. They show the older cartoons that were most popular like All That. So in my opinion Nick owns Disney.
Nick Media Networks, Inc. which is a subsidiary of Viacom International Media Networks Group, LLC (which also owns all of the MTV TV network outlets as well as VH1 Networks, CMT, Comedy Central, SpikeTV, AddictingGames.com and NEOPets) has hundreds of affiliated TV networks around the world so Viacom (and in essence Nickelodeon) can be seen as owning more channels whereas Disney only owns channels such as ABC, Disney Channel, ESPN, Freeform, Disney XD and channels…
NO. The rights to SpongeBob SquarePants are owned by Viacom and Nickelodeon. Also, Stephen Hillenburg created the show, so he owns it as well. The rights have not been sold, although other companies have gained some rights, such as toy companies that make SpongeBob toys. They are authorized to sell SpongeBob toys (while giving some of the profit to Nickelodeon), but they don't own the rights.
