Nickelodeon, the MTV-owned kid-oriented cable network with 16 million subscribers, is possibly the busiest baby sitter in the country. In "The Nickelodeon Collection" ($14.95 each from Sony Wonder), a sort of the best of the baby-sitting channel, choose wisely, concentrating on which age group you're buying for. Unless, of course, it's "The Ren & Stimpy Show" which cuts across most age and taste lines. The little ones love the slapstick sight gags of the asthmatic chihuahua and the catatonic cat, while middle-schoolers up through baby boomers delight in the gross-out - and often witty - humor.

If you could take any job in the world, it should be programming cable's offbeat Nick at Night channel - the face the Nickelodeon cable channel takes on after the sun goes down. Take tonight, for example. It's Halloween Night, and Nick at Nite will be presenting, between 8 and 10 p.m., "freaky" Halloween episodes of the classic series "Mr. Ed," "The Patty Duke Show," "My Three Sons" and "The Donna Reed Show. " Forget the parties. Camp in front of your TV set eating pumpkin pie and getting hilariously scared out of your wits watching Nick.

Once Nickelodeon was nicknamed "the green vegetables network" because it was considered to be good for children. Now you could call it "the green slime network" because of the runaway success of its biggest hit series, Double Dare. The green slime that exuberant contestants on Double Dare wallow through is such a trademark of Nickelodeon that when ground was broken May 2 for its new production facilities at Universal Studios Florida in Orlando, a geyser of green slime jetted up as soon as the shovel pierced the ground.

Michael Hyland, a 5-year-old in Center City, likes the red-headed Chuckie, one of four animated babies on Nickelodeon's hot show, Rugrats. "He's a scare-dy cat," explained Michael.

It's hard to imagine how the younger, admittedly more intense Dick Vermeil would have handled the request. A producer from Nickelodeon, the cable channel devoted to children's programming, asked Vermeil to look into her camera and "show the kids your game face. " The older, more mellow Vermeil looked puzzled, smiled briefly, and said, "OK, thank you. " It was one of many surreal moments in the ever more bizarre exercise that is Super Bowl media day. When Vermeil brought the Eagles to the Super Bowl in 1981, there was no World Wide Web, and the game wasn't "covered" by everyone from Nickelodeon to MTV to the Cartoon Network.

When one thinks of the television networks, the words "virtue," "quality," "trust" and "credible" do not exactly spring to mind. Yet these are words used to describe a network that, at 11 years old, shares the age of many of its viewers. Fortunately, unlike these viewers, this network has no plans to grow up. At the sprawling new Universal Studios in Orlando, where its production facilities are located, Nickelodeon cable television network, with 51.8 million subscribers, is watched by more children than the three networks combined.

"If they come to the show, chances are they'll be part of it," warns Marc Weiner. "And there's a good chance they'll get messy. Maybe they'd better bring an extra shirt. " Bring an extra shirt? Not the kind of advice you hear from many comedians. But then, they're not inviting you and your youngsters to the weird, wild and often wet world of Weinerville. Never heard of Weinerville? Which, by the way, is pronounced wienerville - like the hot dog. You wouldn't be expected to, unless you were, say, 6 or 7. Because Weinerville, the brainchild of comic Weiner, is a town, a state of mind and a very popular 7 a.m. show on the children's cable network Nickelodeon.

* THE NEWSROOM. 10 p.m. Sunday, HBO. Forget what you may have seen in that artsy HBO promo: The second season of Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom," which begins this weekend, does not take place in a desert. Or on the set of "Breaking Bad.

Ninety-nine percent of all movie stories come from three mythic templates: revenge (Cain and Abel); love (Boy meets Girl); and redemption ("Henry II"). "The Last Airbender" takes its cue from the Bard - right down to the sunlight on the poster poking through "the foul and ugly mists of vapours. " So . . . the long line of Airbenders is dead. He is the "last. " Worse, he's a boy who doesn't want to accept his destiny and its boring mantle of responsibility. He'll face an enemy who is far more powerful.
