Nick Studio 10 is a live programming block which debuted on February 18, 2013 and ended on June 17 of the same year, never returning from a planned hiatus after one additional Labor Day special due to unknown factors. It usually aired on Nickelodeon on weekday afternoons during the traditional school year from the network's headquarters building in Times Square in Manhattan, New York.
The program was hosted by a group of young teens: Troy Doherty, Noah Grossman, Malika Samuel and Gabrielle "Gabby" Senn, who create videos consisting of random humor directed toward pre-teens and teens. The program airs from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET (tape delayed for the Pacific feed), and was the first live afternoon block for the network since the short-lived 2007 block ME:TV. Nick Studio 10 revived a Nickelodeon tradition of afternoon blocks, with previous entries including Nick in the Afternoon (1994 to 1998) and U-Pick Live (2002 to 2005).
The block started out as solely featuring multiple episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants (a series commonly marathoned by the channel), though other series were eventually aired in the block by the start of April. The Nick Studio 10 continuity clips were inserted both during naturally during program breaks, along with short clips taken from viral videos or other sources randomly within programming, which included non sequiturs such as "Nick Did It!" before returning to the scheduled programming in-progress. Over time these interruptions were reduced to traditional continuity due to viewer feedback.
On April 1, 2013, the segments relaunched after an Easter break of a few weeks, moving back an hour from a 5 p.m. start to 4 p.m. and now including an hour of The Fairly OddParents, followed by SpongeBob. Some episodes of Monsters vs. Aliens also aired in the block since April 29. The block again went on hiatus in mid-June 2013 to make way for Nickelodeon's summer programming blocks and marathons. A best-of compilation of the show's spring season aired in primetime on September 2, 2013, and though it promised the return of the block, it has not aired since with no word from the network or the cast on any planned return.
