I think you're exactly right on this. We remember fondly those things which shaped us or affected us in a positive way as the "pinnacle" of the medium. I was just musing on this the other day, when I saw a trending topic on Twitter where all of the participants were so excited that Nick was rerunning stuff from the mid '90s during late nights. And I had to laugh, because by the mid '90s I was already lamenting how Out of Control and You Can't Do That On Television -- the stuff I grew up with -- were really representative of Nick's heyday.
It's all relative.
Edit: Well, mostly. I just took a look at Nick's schedule...what, do they just run Spongebob and Kung Fu Panda all day? Perhaps wheelbarrow has a point.
