The Nickelodeon Saturday programming block, known as Gotta See Saturdays from 2012 to 2013, Nick's New Saturday Night from 2014, Nick's Saturday Night from 2015 to 2017, and now known as A Night of Premieres as of 2018, is the current program block branding of Nickelodeon's Saturday morning and Saturday evening programming on the flagship channel in the United States. The morning block (airing from 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m ET/PT) mainly features new premieres of Nicktoons programming, with the evening block (from 7:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m ET/PT) consisting of the network's original live-action sitcoms. The branding launched on September 22, 2012 with season premieres of the respective series in both dayparts.[1] The evening version of Gotta See Saturdays is a direct successor to the former Saturday night SNICK (1992–2004) and TEENick (2001–2009) blocks.[2]

As of March 31, 2018, the branding for Nick's Saturday night premieres is now known as A Night of Premieres, with the premiere of the newest original series Star Falls and Knight Squad alongside season 4 of Henry Danger. In its previous brandings, one of the first acquired programming to air in this format was TeenNick Top 10 from sister channel TeenNick. On February 25, 2017, Nickelodeon began promoting the Saturday morning block as The Hang Zone with Lincoln Loud, themed to The Loud House. The block was discontinued on March 23, 2017.[3]
