“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 leaked online last month. The photos, including one in which McCurdy is on all fours wearing a thong, leaked online days after McCurdy mocked ex-boyfriend Andre Drummond’s kissing abilities on a podcast. McCurdy tweeted that she had sent the photos to one person (i.e. Drummond) but Drummond denies posting them online. Keep reading »
“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 us. I just don’t see that ever happening because of how he really feels.”
Weeeeee are never, ever, ever, ever getting back together! Kel Mitchell from “Kenan & Kel” just dashed any hopes we might have had for a “Good Burger” reunion now that Kenan’s all fancy on “Saturday Night Live.” Although, in fairness to Kenan, I suppose anyone would get sick of constantly being asked ,”Where’s Kel?” [Splitsider]
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 Wars” or crossing my fingers for a “Charmed” marathon on TNT. I DVR “30 Rock” to watch each week as well as the latest episode of “Top Chef.” Truly, there is very little I won’t watch.
Oh, except Nickelodeon’s new channel for moms, NickMom. You probably won’t find me watching that anytime soon, despite being a mom. On October 1st, NickJr — a channel originally created to provide age-appropriate programming for preschool children — began airing a block of nighttime programming “just for moms.” When I heard the news, I started wondering what I, a self-professed TV fiend and mom, was lacking from my already jam-packed television watching schedule.

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 us clips of some of Mr. Wizard’s bitchy behavior.

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 dance her socks off with Miranda Cosgrove and friends. Too cute! And if I’m not mistaken, that’s “Saturday Night Live”‘s Taran Killam playing a Secret Serviceman. Now pardon me while I find a nine-year-old who can tell me what channel Nickelodeon actually is. [YouTube] Keep reading »
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 an internship at a newspaper—which sounds oddly like my life. Too bad the show doesn’t look so good. Clarissa in black with a simple bob? No way. And that more sophisticated version of the theme song? No thanks.
Watch the rest of the show after the jump. Keep reading »
