Nickelodeon Unites Blockbuster "iCarly" with Cast of New Hit "Victorious" in an Epic Summer TV Event, "iParty with Victorious," Premiering Saturday, June 11

Original TV Event Brings Together iCarly and Victorious Casts for First-Time Ever; Guest Stars Kenan Thompson and Features Performance of Theme-Song Mash-up "Leave It All to Shine" Available on iTunes June 7

NEW YORK, May 31, 2011 -- It's romance and revenge at the wildest party ever! Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, will unite the casts of mega-hit iCarly and Victorious for an epic 90-minute, primetime TV event, "iParty with Victorious," on Saturday, June 11, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Leading up to the premiere, Nickelodeon will air daily themed "iParty with..." three-hour marathons of popular iCarly and Victorious episodes beginning Monday, June 6, at 4 p.m. (ET/PT). "iParty with Victorious" will encore Sunday, June 12, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT).

"iParty with Victorious" brings the casts of Nick's hit series iCarly and Victorious together for the first time ever and guest stars Nickelodeon alumnus Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live, All That, Kenan & Kel) as himself. One cheating boyfriend, plus two scorned girlfriends, equals a night to remember as Carly and Tori plot sweet revenge while the rest of the iCarly and Hollywood Arts gang compete in a lyrical rap battle royale. The television event culminates in an ensemble performance of the theme song mash-up, "Leave It All to Shine," which will be available on iTunes beginning Tuesday, June 7.

"This is a don't-miss TV event of the summer as the casts of these two hit series come together for two times the laughter, two times the action and an once-in-a-lifetime musical mash-up," said Marjorie Cohn, President, Development and Original Programming, Nickelodeon and MTV Networks Kids and Family Group.

In "iParty with Victorious," Carly is dating a boy named Stephen who divides his time between parents living in Seattle and Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Tori is also spending time with her new boyfriend who, unbeknownst to her, is the very same boy Carly is seeing! Elsewhere at Hollywood Arts, Andre is psyched because Kenan Thompson has offered to let him throw a small party in his awesome new house but the party spirals out of control when Rex tweets a mass invite. Back in Seattle, Carly suspects that Stephen is cheating on her after seeing a photo of him and Tori together and plans a trip to Los Angeles to catch him in the act. After convincing Tori that Stephen is cheating on both of them, Carly and Tori come together to plot their revenge at the party. Amidst all the scheming, Rex challenges the partygoers to a lyrical rap battle.

Leading into the premiere of the TV event, Nick.com will launch the "iParty with Victorious" game on Thursday, June 2, where fans can play as Carly or Tori to remove a crazy party-crashing panda from the big house party. In addition, the "iParty with Victorious" Twitter sweepstakes will launch Saturday, June 4, allowing fans to tweet for a chance to win a visit to the set of either iCarly or Victorious. The sweepstakes ends at the end of the east coast premiere of "iParty with Victorious" at 9:30 p.m. (ET). Highlights from the TV event will also be featured on iCarly.com and TheSlap.com.

In 2010, iCarly was Nickelodeon's number-one show among K6-11, T9-14 and K2-11. Last year, more than 28 million total viewers tuned in to watch the hit series each week, including 10.2 million adults. Since its launch in April 2010, Victorious has been the number-one live-action comedy series in its timeslot on all TV with K6-11, Tweens 9-14, and Teens 12-17, reaching 14.4 million kids, 13.7 million tweens, and 11.4 million teens each quarter. Both iCarly and Victorious are created and executive produced by television hitmaker Dan Schneider.

The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.
