Nickelodeon Star Jennette McCurdy’s “Sexy Selfie” Scandal Halts Production On Probably-Canceled “Sam & Cat”

“Sam & Cat” is apparently a popular show on Nickelodeon starring Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy. But tweens will be disappointed to learn (I guess?) that the show’s future is on thin ice and hasn’t been renewed for a second season, allegedly because the network is pissed that some sexy selfies the 21-year-old McCurdy took…

“Kenan & Kel” Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together

“The truth is Kenan [Thompson] does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him… There is no bad blood on my side, I’m not declining a reunion, I know the fans love the show and would love to see some type of appearance with…

The Soapbox: No, Nickelodeon, Mothers Do Not Need Our Own TV Channel

I’m a TV junkie. Once my kid finally falls asleep, you’ll find me splayed out on the couch, flipping through the over 800 channels we apparently subscribe to. And my tastes run rampant: I’m just as happy sitting through an hour of “Alphas” on the Syfy channel as I am watching Barry’s antics on “Storage…

Mr. Wizard Was Kind Of A Dick

Yeah, yeah, Mr. Wizard, Nickelodeon’s resident science guy, taught us all lots about how electricity worked, and gravity and all kinds of other stuff. But seriously? Sometimes he could be kind of jerky –I mean,  he spent his life hanging out with 8-year-olds so it’s not like I blame him. This hilarious video shows u…

Michelle Obama Busts A Move On “iCarly”

Nickelodeon is not usually a channel we’d be caught watching unless there’s a “Ren & Stimpy” marathon on. We may just have to TiVo an episode of the kiddie program “iCarly” in the new year, though: a teaser for the 2012 season is out and First Lady Michelle Obama stops by the iCarly webshow to…

“Clarissa Explains It All” Almost Had A Spin-Off Show

 

Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start…

TeenNick has announced that they will be bringing back some of our favorite TV shows involving plaid in a new programming block that will air nightly from midnight to 2 a.m. called “The ’90s Are All That.” The series in the block that has u…

Why Perez Hilton Should Not Be On Nickelodeon

Perez Hilton is on the shortlist of awful human beings that I don’t want exposed to my future children. So why, oh why would the kids’ channel Nickelodeon invite the self-proclaimed Queen of All Media to guest star on one of its shows? Perez announced that on Friday, August 27th, at 8 p.m., he’ll have…

The Daily Hotness: Josh Peck

Kid stars, most of them make us run screaming past the cute years, but Josh Peck is an above-average boy, er, man. The former “funny fat kid” and cast member of Nickelodeon hits like The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh, has shed the weight and his child-proof image to take on the role of…

Nickelodeon Plans A Teen Sex Special Thanks To Jamie Lynn Spears

As young Hollywood grows up, the young stars are bound to make mistakes, even if they seem perfect on-screen, down to their braces-less teeth and pimple-less skin. But if a show’s core fan base is between the ages of 9 and 14, it’s generally expected that its stars will do their best not to get…
