Big Time Rush to guest star on 'Marvin Marvin'

Nickelodeon

It’s the alien to the rescue! When Marvin (Lucas Cruikshank) and Teri (Victory Van Tuyl) attend a Big Time Rush concert in an upcoming hour-long Marvin Marvin special, they find out that BTR has been kidnapped by the evil Klerg, who are on the hunt to find Klutonians. And when Teri gets mistaken for a Klutonian, it’s up to Marvin to save her and the guys.

Check out the clip below to see how Kendall, James, Carlos, and Logan look after being stuck on an asteroid, and to hear the song they’ll perform. “Big Time Marvin” premieres Saturday, March 30 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. READ FULL STORY

Nickelodeon's 2013-2014 plan: More focus on those post-millenials (new 'Dora' spinoff and more) and keep the funny going

Nickelodeon may be getting older (it’s 33!), but its powers-that-be have a laser focus on the young market. At the network’s 2013 upfronts yesterday, Nickelodeon Group President Cyma Zarghami played up research that showed kids eight and younger have an intense connection to their sense of humor. And the Viacom-owned network intends to feed that need with new preschool programing and a slate of new animated and live-action shows.

“We have reorganized our development process in a way that allows us to make content smarter and faster than ever before, tailored specifically for this first generation of post-millennial kids,” Zarghami said. “Our research tells us that for them funny is a badge of honor, and because funny is in Nickelodeon’s core DNA, we believe our position will ensure our success with them.” READ FULL STORY

'Marvin Marvin' is getting settled in -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s been two months since Lucas Cruikshank’s alien Marvin landed on Nickelodeon’s lineup and his show Marvin Marvin has been slowly growing its fanbase. It’s now number one in its time period for tweens and gaining more traction. The January 5 episode had double-digit gains in key kid demos (compared to the series premiere), drawing  2.9 million total viewers. For those of you with lingering thoughts of Cruikshank’s earlier high-pitched, hyper alter ego Fred Figglehorn, this character is not quite so extreme, but he’s still weird. And even though he’s also an alien sent to earth by his parents to protect him, he’s more Mork from Ork than Kal-El from Krypton.

Check out the clip below from the Saturday Jan. 12 episode (8:30p.m. ET/PT) as Marvin falls in with the cool kids and learn an important lesson about friendship, then look at some exclusive behind the scenes photos.
