iCarly is an American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from September 8, 2007 until November 23, 2012. The series was created by Dan Schneider. It focuses on teenager Carly Shay, who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson.


The fourth series created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon. Schneider originally wanted to make a new TV series starring Miranda Cosgrove; the original idea was that she play a normal girl who, in a twist of fate, gets cast to star in her favorite TV show, Starstruck. However, during a casual meeting in his den with his wife and his friend Steve, Schneider decided that it would be much better if Carly had her own show – a web show she could run herself and do whatever she wanted to do. In November 2006, Schneider threw out his Starstruck script and wrote a new pilot called iCarly during December. The pilot was shot in January 2007.


The show was a hit with audiences. In 2007, the series debuted to more than 4 million viewers, before topping out in 2010 with more than 11 million. The show was also nominated for a number of awards, winning a Kids' choice Award in 2009 for Favorite TV show.[1]


The official iCarly Twitter [3] account started on May 1st, 2009. Within eight years, the page has amassed more than 4.1 million followers.

On April 10th, 2011, Redditor [4] DoctorBaby launched the /r/iCarly subreddit. After six years, the subreddit has garnered more than 550 subscribers.

The iCarly Facebook [2] page was launched on April 7th, 2012. As of November 2017, the page has more than 26 million likes and 25 million followers.
