This is the 9th season of All That and the third season of the relaunch era. This season aired from late 2003 until early 2004. This season had only 15 episodes. Many changes happened before the start of this season. Bryan Hearne left the show after two seasons to focus on his music. During the off-season Nickelodeon advertised a competition called "R U All That?: Nickelodeon's Search for the Funniest Kid in America". It was a nationwide search to find a new cast member. The judges happened to be former cast members Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon. After this contest ended in early 2003, the finals aired on July 26, 2003. The contest picked five finalists, and all of them performed a sketch with some of the cast members. The winner was Christina Kirkman who joined the show in the season opener. Ryan Coleman, the runner up in the contest, joined mid season. Producers viewed as a good replacement for Hearne. Ratings wise the show wasn't doing well. In a order to get ratings up the producers brought back old fan favorite sketchs, like Good Burger. However instead of Kel Mitchell in his famous chacacter Ed, they put in Coleman in a test skit. They thought the fit would work, resulting in the Revision of the skit.

The show saw many changes before the start of the season. Since season 7 was more of an experiment season, producers knew what worked and what didn't work with the show. Pickle Boy was taken out and only shown on rare occasions, and a formal green room was introduced. Like the first six seasons, the cast would start the show in the green room before starting the show. The intro was the same as the previous season, but with Spears edited in. The entire cast from last season returned for their second on the show. Producers added Jamie Lynn Spears to the cast, who was also the young sister of singer Britney Spears, due to her interest in being on the show. Claims of nepotism arose from this, and ironically, Britney Spears would show up and host and perform in this season. This would be the final season for Bryan Hearne. Hearne wished to leave the show so he could focus on his music career. This is also the first season when the cast began to perform Snick On-Air Dare. After the season ended, producers wanted to switch things up when looking for new cast members for the following season. Producers got Nickelodeon to hold a contest called: "R U All That?: Nickelodeon's Search for the Funniest Kid in America" to find the new cast member.
