From 1999 to 2004, The Amanda Show aired on the SNICK block, then on the new TEENick block from 2001 to 2007. When it moved to The N by the end of October 2007, The N was still a 12-hour channel, while sharing the same channel number with Noggin since 2002. On December 31, 2007, all television programs airing on The N (including The Amanda Show) moved to the channel number formerly occupied by Nick GAS (which was officially shut down that day), and Noggin became a 24-hour channel at that same time.
