Sam’s prospective show also would serve a spin-off vehicle for Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande), a popular character from Schneider’s other Nick comedy, Victorious. READ FULL STORY

iCarly may be winding down production on its final season, but it’s turning up the star power at least one more time: Emma Stone (The Help, Easy A) will make a cameo appearance on the Nick comedy, EW has learned.

Here’s some guest casting you probably didn’t expect to see: Rick, Corey and Chumlee from History’s hit reality series Pawn Stars will play themselves on iCarly, EW has learned. How on earth did these two worlds collide? As it turns out, iCarly creator/exec producer Dan Schneider and his wife are big fans of the boys at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, and he offered them a spot on his Nickelodeon comedy.
In the episode, Sam (Jennette McCurdy) learns that her saucy mother is being held in a Las Vegas jail, so Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and the gang embark on a road trip to Sin City, where they pawn some of their prized possessions for bail money at a shop run by the three guys.

The gang at iCarly have gotten into some high-level high jinks over the years, but this time it’s going all the way up to the White House. Yes, the First Lady herself, Michelle Obama, will guest-star on an episode of the hit Nickelodeon sitcom airing Jan. 16 at 8 p.m.
What exactly brings President Obama’s better half to Seattle? When Carly’s dad, an Air Force colonel, can’t make it home for his birthday celebration, Carly’s friends set up a webcast so Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) can communicate with him at a military base. With a few Secret Service agents in tow (including one played by… Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam!), Mrs. Obama surprises Carly and Co. to commend them for supporting military families (as part of the First Lady’s Joining Forces initiative). The kids invite her to appear on iCarly, and not only does she oblige, she even engages in some random dancing. Below, you can sneak a peak at a clip featuring the First Lady, a.k.a. “Your Excellency.” READ FULL STORY

In the episode, which will likely air in January, Obama gets involved after two of Carly’s friends break some rules so that she can have have a web chat with her dad, who’s in the military serving overseas. “The First Lady discovers it and comes to have a chat with them in the most positive way possible,” network president Cyma Zarghami said Wednesday.

He winds up befriending Carly and Co. when they visit the ward.
