And once again, it only wins awards for its looks, rather than its heart or substance. >:oP

Man, R.L. Stine's show is getting a lot of nominations.

Pretty cool how much recognition the Hub's getting despite still being a new channel. Too bad that doesn't really have any bearing on how successful the channel is...
