Devon Werkheiser And Daniel Curtis Lee Hold Mini "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" Reunion

Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide is a modern classic Nickelodeon show that really focused on not only how to survive the dreaded days of middle school, but on the power of friendship and the bond between Ned and his two forever friends, Cookie and Moze. Although the series wrapped way back in 2007, 10 years later, Ned and Cookie are still super close. That's right, Devon Werkheiser and Daniel Curtis Lee reunited and the photos prove these two are legit bros for life!

"Guess who's back? @danielcurtislee," Devon wrote in the caption of the selfie he shared on Instagram.


Daniel posted a silly pic of the pair and in his caption, even hinted that these two might be working on a future project together.

"Always great brainstorming with the Fam @devonwerkharder A1since Day1 [emoji][rocket emoji]," Daniel wrote.

OK, let's just take a minute to reflect on how much these guys have totally grown up. It was a decade ago when they were last on television together, after all. it's seriously been so long!


But the fact that these two are still buds is just all types of adorable and who knows, maybe they will reunite on-screen too. Ned and Cookie back at it again. What a time that would be!

In honor of this reunion, scroll through the gallery to see how much the entire Ned's cast has transformed and then drop a comment below telling NickALive! what you think about this reunion!:

Nick is Number One for the Month and Year To Date, with the Top Shows in Every Demo



NEW YORK - Feb. 28, 2017 - Headed into its Upfront presentation this week, Nickelodeon closes February as the top-rated kids' network in total day--continuing its winning streak for the month and year with Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Kids 2-5 as competitors face declines. According to Nielsen Media Research for February (Jan. 30-Feb. 26, '17), Nickelodeon averaged a 2.2/608K with Kids 2-11 (on par with last year); a 1.8/302K with Kids 6-11 (on par); and a 2.9/307K among Kids 2-5 (+up 7%).

For the year to date, Nick is also firmly number one with all three demos, notably up +5% with Kids 2-11, up +11% with Kids 2-5 and marking its sixth straight month number one with Kids 6-11. Nick also owns the top shows in every kid demo; for just February, Nick has 7 of the top ten shows for Kids 2-11; 8 of the top ten with Kids 6-11; and 6 of the top ten among Kids 2-5.

Nickelodeon Australia Unveils New Research Study On Australian Dads

Original Nickelodeon Australia Press Release, via Nickelodeon Trade:

NICKELODEON UNVEILS NEW RESEARCH STUDY ON AUSTRALIAN DADS


“WAIT UNTIL YOUR FATHER GETS HOME”


A FATHER’S ROLE AS THE PRIMARY DISCIPLINARIAN IS SHIFTING


MEDIA SHOULD PORTRAY DADS AS BEING MORE INVOLVED, SENSITIVE AND NURTURING



Nickelodeon Australia, a division of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN), today unveiled the results of Wait Until Your Father Gets Home,” a new study investigating the role fathers play in their children’s lives. The findings uncovered a shifting perspective in what it means to be a dad today with the traditional role as disciplinarian dissipating, traditional gender-based roles evolving and the pressures of work impacting their ability to connect and spend time with their kids.

“Wait Until Your Father Gets Home” also explored the way today’s dads are portrayed in the media, with a majority of respondents agreeing that marketers and programmers should represent their greater involvement in parenting and acknowledge that they are involved in all aspects of decision-making regarding their kids.

The Nickelodeon-commissioned study involved four qualitative group discussions, fourteen face-to-face interviews and over 900 online surveys conducted in Australia between 23rd December 2016 and 10th January 2017.

“Today’s dads are increasingly more involved in the day-to-day decisions around the household,” said Kirsty Bloore, VIMN’s senior director of research for Asia Pacific. “They purchase groceries, make decisions on what clothes and toys to buy and are involved in choosing day care. Most importantly, dads feel they should be portrayed as being much more involved and nurturing.”

According to the study, the shift of a father’s role from being the primary disciplinarian represents the biggest change from the previous generation. Today’s dads are more hands-on, present, patient and understanding and see themselves as less strict, feared, distant or work-focused than their own fathers. Dad’s today feel they have “come a long way and are more connected to their kids” and the phrase ‘wait until your father gets home’ is now perceived more as a reward than a threat.

A large majority of Australian dads believe that they are “doing a good job” (78%) and “feel lucky” being a dad (80%), whereas 50% think parenting is “much harder than they had thought” and 44% believe parenting is “harder than in previous generations.” 62% say they want to be more involved however face expectations to stay at work with 54% agreeing, “workplaces are less understanding of the changing roles of being a father.” Dads can also feel the pressure of balancing caregiving over being the breadwinner in the household, with 44% believing “there is a disconnect between the expectations of me as a dad from home and from work.”

According to the study, 42% agree that the media portrays dads as stupid or clueless and 56% say marketers and programmers need to evolve in order to accurately reflect their involvement in household and parenting roles. 50% agree that the media should depict dads as sensitive and nurturing by showing them interacting with their kids, enjoying a variety of activities with them and showing that kids need them as well as mum.

A partner’s work status has the largest impact on a dad’s attitude and approach toward parenting. Nickelodeon’s “Wait Until Your Father Gets Home” identified three different categories of modern day dads:

- Provider Dads are the primary breadwinners and receive parental direction from the caregiver who is not working or is working part time. Provider Dads tend to stick to the traditional male role by providing back up to mum, chip in when asked or needed to, and tend to ‘mind the kids’ vs. ‘interact with the kids’ when left in charge of their care.

- Super-Sub Dads are also the primary breadwinner but also relief caregivers for a partner who is not working or working full or part time. Super-Sub Dads are eager caregivers outside of work, employ a ‘tag team’ system of parenting on weekdays and equal caregiving on weekends, and are willing to take on more traditional female tasks.

- Carer Dads are the primary caregivers, are only occasionally or not the breadwinner, and have a partner that works full or part time. Carer Dads feel responsible for the care of the children, enjoy being in the caregivers role, are hands on and proactive, and ignore gender bias as it pertains to parenting. Carer Dads typically have the greatest breadth of responsibilities compared to Provider or Super-Sub Dads.

“Marketers and programmers can form a deeper connection with Australian dads by moving away from portraying them as dim-witted and helpless to a more accurate depiction as hands-on, engaged and emotionally connected parents,” adds Kirsty Bloore.

About Little Mix:


Since 2011, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of pop’s brightest acts.

Signature hits including “Move,” “Wings” and “Black Magic” - the latter becoming their third UK chart-topper, spending three weeks at the top last summer - have helped the band score over half a billion YouTube and Vevo views worldwide, alongside massive tours of the UK, Australia, Japan and the US – where their debut album smashed a record the Spice Girls held for almost two decades. 

In many ways it was their third album, 2015's "Get Weird", that was the real turning point.

Released in November, it crashed into the chart at Number 2, spent the rest of that year in the Top Ten and by August 2016 had become the biggest-selling album of their careers.

Bolstered by the retro loveliness of “Love Me Like You,” the heart-rending ballad “Secret Love Song” and a re-worked version of their anthem “Hair” featuring Sean Paul, it's an album that cemented the band's confidence in their own sound. Its immense success also meant they could head out on yet another arena tour, this time playing an incredible 60 shows across Europe (including another two sold out dates at London's O2 arena), Australia and Asia, and selling over 500k tickets. 

Their fourth album ‘Glory Days’ was released on November 18, 2016 and spent 5 weeks at No. 1 in the UK, becoming the millennium’s longest running No. 1 album from a girl group.

Lead single “Shout Out to My Ex” is a perfectly pitched kiss-off and shot straight to No. 1 on the iTunes Chart in over 10 countries following a sensational performance on the latest series of The X Factor UK. The song also climbed into the Top 10 on iTunes US Pop chart, the highest debut on the chart for the girls to date. “Shout Out to My Ex” also just recently won Little Mix their first-ever BRIT Award for British Single.

Little Mix is currently on tour in the US with Ariana Grande and will embark on a massive international tour later this summer and into the fall.

NickALive!'s pick of Nickelodeon news, highlights and more from around the internet!:


- Nickelodeon UK backs 2017 Blackpool Light Fund event!

- Shane's Inspiration, an international nonprofit dedicated to creating inclusive playgrounds and educational programs that foster social inclusion for children with disabilities, is hosting its 16th annual fundraising gala on Saturday, March 4, 2017. Game Shakers star Cree Cicchino as a honoree.

Former Nickelodeon star Steve Burns from Blue's Clues (US version) is now in a band with Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips! The 43-year-old, who cut his teeth on acting by playing the quirky, mystery-solving owner of a blue cartoon puppy in the '90s, is now writing and performing music for the pint-sized crowd in the group STEVENSTEVEN. Their album, "Foreverywhere," which debuted Friday, features 11 songs that are not quite just for kids. The first single off the album "The Unicorn and Princess Rainbow" has hints of David Bowie and Neil Diamond and is complete with a psychedelic guitar solo. "It was a little bit of rebelling against the clichés of what makes kiddie music, kiddie music," Burns explained. "What age group is 'Puff the Magic Dragon for?" he questioned. "I don't know." "We both don't think there's a huge difference anyway in what makes music awesome for kids and what makes music awesome for adults," he continued. Drozd explained that the kid part of the album isn't necessarily the music, but what Burns is trying to get across. "It's what you're saying, and how you re explaining certain things, and certain things that make it — "oh oh now I'm pooping in the toilet bowl,'" he told The News, referencing some of the song lyrics. "If you're an adult and that's really moving you, then you got some other things to worry about," Drozd joked. Burns quickly chimed in: "I disagree, our criteria was … if we're writing a funny song it has to be funny to us, and if we're writing an inspiring song about loss and longing it has to move us." Burns hasn't appeared on screen for a television show since. In fact, he never intended to in the first place. He thought his Blue's Clues audition was for a voice-over role. "I just wasn't paying attention," he said of his 1995 audition.

Role Of Fathers Shifting, Nickelodeon Australia's New Study Finds

The struggle to juggle family life and work is a challenge now shared by dads, a new study has found.

Fathers today are less strict, more caring and more hands-on than their own fathers, but battle to combine raising children and being the breadwinner.


A survey of more than 900 Australian fathers shows 78 per cent think they are doing a good job as a dad.

However, 62 per cent say they want to be more ­involved but find it difficult because of their work hours.

The research, commissioned by Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand, iden­tifies three categories of fathers:

PROVIDER Dads, who “mind the kids” when mum’s not around;

SUPER Substitute Dads, who are eager caregivers when they’re not working; and

FULLTIME Carer Dads, who are the primary carers.

The report, titled “Wait Until Your Father Gets Home”, shows how the role of fathers is shifting from ­disciplinarian to carer.

“The phrase ‘wait until your father gets home’ is now perceived more as a reward than a threat,” said Kirsty Bloore, research director from Nickelodeon’s parent company, Viacom.

“Dads today are proudly more engaged and emotionally connected with their kids.

“They have had to adapt to the pressures and challenges of being a parent in today’s world, and are becoming much more understanding and capable of juggling the demands of raising children.”

One hands-on dad is Justin Jeffery, 37, a security guard from Box Hill who is the ­father of Olivia, 2.


Justin is very hands-on with his two-year-old daughter Olivia. Picture: Eugene Hyland

“I always race home from work so I don’t miss bath time,” he told the Herald Sun.

“I do what I can to be there with her as much as I can.”

Mr Jeffery is also showing his caring side by raising money to help other families care for their sick children.

In April 2017, he is running a 100km marathon from Port Melbourne to the Portsea Pub to raise money for Eli’s Gift Foundation.

Even then, he still puts Olivia first. “I get up at 4am to train when Ollie is asleep and, when I get home, it’s all about her,” he said.

Mr. Jeffery can be supported at gofundme.com at Justin — Port to Port.

Nickelodeon USA to Premiere Three-Part Docu-Series, "Little Ballers Indiana"

The basketball players featured in Nickelodeon’s upcoming docu-series Little Ballers Indiana may only be 11 and 12 years old, but they are some of the fiercest role models you will ever meet.


The series, led by WNBA All Star Skylar Diggins, is scheduled to premiere on Friday, March 3 at 9 p.m. on Nicktoons USA's NickSports TV block. And, over the course of three 30-minute episodes, viewers will meet six girls – Amiyah Reynolds, Mila Reynolds, Alycia Patterson, Bria Brown, Ryin Ott, and Kash Biffle – as they navigate teamwork while playing for Skylar’s Amateur Athletic Union team: the Sky Digg Ballers.

As Skylar says in the show’s opening sequence, each girl comes from different family backgrounds, with different childhood experiences. But on the court? They are a collective unit, working together toward a common goal: winning their games.

Together, the Ballers learn about team building, confidence, and strategy – not to mention the fact that gender biases about sports (you know, that boys are better than girls) are totally outdated. But it’s pretty safe to say that Amiyah, Mila, Alycia, Bria, Ryin, and Kash teach each other a lot as well; the girls learn important lessons of self-esteem and empowerment just from being each other’s teammates.

But make no mistake: the message of Little Ballers will hit home for everyone, regardless of whether or not they ever played sports. It is refreshing to witness a story of girls discovering solidarity through a sport, and how that sportsmanship translates into the bigger themes of life. Now, more than ever, we need those reminders of female empowerment and the strength of sisterhood.

Throughout the series, Skylar and other members of the WNBA offer compelling insight, working to shatter gender stereotypes and encourage the girls' confidence. Not only is it important for the Ballers to witness these empowered women who are showing them that hard work pays off, it's also essential for viewers to see these professional female athletes who excel in their field. And it seems that by the end of the series, Skylar and her teammates learn from the young players just as much as the girls learn from their experience on the court.

“There’s a thousand things you can learn through basketball,” Mila tells Teen Vogue. Amiyah adds, “Basketball has taught me a lot of things, but mainly good sportsmanship. Which means: respect.”

Little Ballers Indiana will air over three consecutive nights, Friday, March 3 through Sunday, March 5, only on NickSports. The series is a slam dunk for female empowerment.
