Kids' Choice Awards: And the Nickelodeon Lifetime Achievement Award goes to... Dan Schneider!


Dan Schneider is the man behind nine of Nickelodeon’s most memorable shows, from All That to iCarly, and now the showrunner is getting recognized for his 20 years of work at the network with their very first Lifetime Achievement Award.

Schneider will be presented with the award at this Saturday’s Kids’ Choice Awards — an honor Schneider is overjoyed to receive, but also a bit confused by. “At first, I felt like, aren’t I too young for a lifetime achievement award?” the 48-year-old tells EW.

The self-described “perpetual adolescent” also talked about what set prop he’d keep if his house was on fire, why he won’t do another All That reboot, and his feelings on Nickelodeon’s notorious slime. Check out our interview with him below: READ FULL STORY

'iCarly' favorites join 'Sam & Cat' for special episode -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP


As if the Kids’ Choice Awards airing Saturday night wasn’t enough good TV for one night, Nickelodeon is also airing a special hour-long episode of Sam & Cat before the awards show.

In the episode, iCarly regulars show up — but it’s not a happy reunion for everyone. Nora (Danielle Morrow), the “#SuperPsycho” referred to in the episode’s title, plots revenge on Sam (Jennette McCurdy), as Nevel (Reed Alexander) tries to help Sam and Cat (Ariana Grande) escape her wrath.

“It’s just a really fun, big episode where we brought back some of the fans’ favorite characters from the past to join Sam and Cat,” showrunner Dan Schneider tells EW. “I think the audience will go nuts over it.” READ FULL STORY

Nickelodeon announces new awards show: Kids' Choice Sports

Kids who would rather watch basketball than Big Bang Theory are in for a treat this summer when Nickelodeon premieres their first Kids’ Choice Sports awards show, a spin-off of the long-running Kids’ Choice Awards.

While the Kids’ Choice Awards focus on pop culture — TV shows, movies, music — this new awards ceremony will be all about sports. Michael Strahan, former Giants player and current host of Live! With Kelly and Michael, will host and showcase the year’s biggest moments in sports. Top athletes will be a major part of the show, competing in slime-filled competitions and showing off their skills, and the ceremony will even feature a half-time show complete with a live performance by a yet-to-be-announced act.

“Sports are a huge part of kids’ lives, and in the spirit of Kids’ Choice, we are going to celebrate it in the biggest, loudest, slimiest way possible this summer!” president of Nickelodeon Cyma Zarghami said in a statement.

Kids’ Choice Sports will air July 17 from the UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion.

Lea Michele, Andy Samberg presenting at the Kids' Choice Awards

Glee’s Lea Michele and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andy Samberg have been added to the list of this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards presenters, joining fellow TV stars Kristen Bell and Ian Somerhalder.

Big Bang Theory duo Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons will also present, along with Sister, Sister alum Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Live! With Kelly and Michael host Michael Strahan, according to People.

Tune in for the awards March 29 on Nickelodeon to see these presenters — and, more importantly, to see these presenters (maybe!) get slimed.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' '80s voice cast to reunite for Nickelodeon special

The original 1980s voice cast of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons will reunite for a teenage mutant hourlong special.

Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon, and Townsend Coleman will reprise their original pizza-slinging roles as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo on the new iteration of the series. They’ll appear in Friday’s episode “Wormquake!,” which airs at 7 p.m. on Nickelodeon.

The reunion isn’t the buzziest thing this year when it comes to the heroes in a half-shell. The boys in purple, red, orange, and blue will enjoy their 30th birthday this May (the original comic book appeared in 1984) and as such, the series’ creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird will release a commemorative issue to celebrate the anniversary.

Kristen Bell, Will Arnett presenting at 'Kids' Choice Awards'

Looks like we’ll be seeing more of Kristen Bell even after Veronica Mars hits theaters March 14: She was just announced as one of the presenters for this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

The actress is one of the first presenters to be confirmed for the show, along with Ian Somerhalder and Will Arnett, a rep for Nickelodeon tells EW. American Authors, known for their hit “Best Day of My Life,” and Aloe Blacc, who co-wrote Avicii’s “Wake Me Up,” will perform.

Mark Walhberg is hosting this year’s ceremony, which airs on Nickelodeon March 29.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': Who is that masked man? Why, it's Casey Jones! EXCLUSIVE

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns to Nickelodeon with all-new episodes on Feb. 2, as well as a nice surprise for old-school TMNT fans: Recurring Turtle ally Casey Jones is going full masked vigilante.

In the original 1987 animated series, Jones was a violent, Rorschach-esque crime fighter who treated murderers and litterbugs with equal equal disdain and never removed his iconic hockey mask. Nickelodeon’s slightly kinder, gentler Casey is a pal of April O’Neil’s who speaks with Josh Peck’s voice and generally prefers to show his face — at least, until he decides it’s time to take a stand against “pure evil” in Sunday’s episode, titled “The Good, The Bad, and Casey Jones.”

Watch Casey in action in the clip below, which also features his reluctant partner Raphael (Sean Astin) — and some seriously impressive subway rail-skating. Cowabunga!


Get a glimpse at Nickelodeon's newest preschool series, 'Wallykazam!' -- EXCLUSIVE

The future of edutainment is now: On Feb. 3, Nickelodeon debuts a new preschool literacy series called Wallykazam! The show, created by Emmy-winning writer Adam Petlzman (Blue’s Clues, The Backyardigans) follows a troll named Wally and his pet dragon, Norville, as they make words come to life onscreen — teaching little ones skills like letter and sound identification, rhyming, vocabulary development and comprehension strategies. It’s also pretty darn cute — and as a bonus for parents, the series’ first season will also include guest turns by stars like “Weird Al” Yankovic, Seinfeld‘s John O’Hurley, and SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer.

Catch a glimpse of the show — and one very Minion-like hamster — in the exclusive clip below.

'Sam & Cat' reunite with 'iCarly' & 'Victorious' pals in hour-long special -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP


This Saturday, Nickelodeon is airing an hourlong Sam & Cat that’s also something of a reunion special — several familiar faces from iCarly and Victorious, the pair of sitcoms where Sam (Jennette McCurdy) and Cat (Ariana Grande) got their respective starts, are set to appear.

Which familiar faces? Well, for starters, two lovable nerds are on board: namely, iCarly‘s tech-savvy Freddie (Nathan Kress) and Victorious‘ amateur ventriloquist Robbie (Matt Bennett). And when these guys find themselves getting drawn into a love square with Sam and Cat, let’s just say the gloves come off:
