NEW YORK, June 2, 2010 – Kids are in for a wild and crazy night as Carly, Sam and Freddie meet the ultimate iCarly super fan, in Nickelodeon’s brand-new hour-long movie “iPsycho,” premiering Friday, June 4, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Immediately following “iPsycho,” the craziness continues with outrageous all-new episodes of Victorious at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) and Big Time Rush at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Year-to-date, iCarly ranks as the number-one live-action show on television with kids 2-11 and is Nickelodeon’s number-one series with kids and tweens.
In “iPsycho,” Carly, Sam and Freddie decide to make a slight detour on their way to a web conference to visit a fan of the show on her sixteenth birthday. When they arrive, they discover that their super fan Nora is lonely and awkward, and no one has shown up for her birthday party. To make Nora feel better, Carly suggests they do a special iCarly webcast and invite Nora’s classmates to her house. The plan works, and the party is a huge hit. So much so, that Nora decides she doesn’t want her new friends to leave and locks them in her father’s recording studio. Despite their best efforts, Carly, Sam and Freddie are unable to break out of Nora’s basement, so they trick her into sending a secret message to Gibby. Can Gibby decode the message and save the day?
In addition, iCarly.com will feature the “iDefeat Psychos” game where kids can help Gibby and his little brother save Carly, Sam and Freddie after they’re kidnapped by an iCarly fan.
In the new Victorious episode, “Robarazzi,” (9 p.m. ET/PT), Robbie is bummed because his blog on The Slap is going to be shut down because it’s deemed “too boring.” Tori suggests that Robbie capture videos of the students’ everyday lives to help increase traffic. After Robbie’s popularity soars from the TMZ-style videos he posts of his friends, Tori realizes she’s created a monster. Meanwhile, Cat falls under the spell of ordering kooky products in the SkyStore in-flight catalog – will her friends need to stage a shopping intervention?
In Big Time Rush’s “Big Time Dance” episode (9:30 p.m. ET/PT), it’s the last day of school, and the Big Time Rush boys are determined to end the year in style. After volunteering to organize the first Palm Woods school dance, they have one day to secure the ideal location, find the perfect dates and nail their first performance in front of an audience. Fabio makes a guest appearance as himself.
