The iHave A Question About This Crossover Post.

Reasons why I've always preferred American TV to the British variety, #495: Crossovers. Over here a rare breed, but over there comparatively common down the years.

What this is building up to is that Nickelodeon is going to have a crossover betweeen iCarly and Victorious, which makes sense in a variety of ways (they're Nick's two most popular shows, they're both shepherded by Dennis Blunden - er, I mean Dan Schneider... can I help it if I'll never be able to forget seeing the cleanshaven Chris Moyles lookalike back when he was on Head Of The Class? - and even though Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice appeal to basically the same audience, there are still people who prefer one over the other). One problem though: geography can be sorted out (iCarly is set in Seattle, Victorious in Hollywood)... but how are they going to get past the fact that Tori Vega looks exactly, but exactly, like Shelby Marx? And will they take advantage of people enjoying Miranda, Victoria and Jennette McCurdy for... other reasons? (None of them are devoid of talent, but let's face it they ain't ugly.)
