According to the Associated Press, Obama will promote Joining Forces, the initiative focused on increasing awareness and support for military families.

In the episode, Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and her friends break some rules to set up a web chat so Carly can speak with her father -- who is serving overseas -- on his birthday.

After the rule-breaking, "the first lady discovers it and comes to have a chat with them in the most positive way possible," Nickelodeon president Cyma Zarghami told AP.

Miranda Cosgrove Spills the Beans on 'iCarly' Pranks (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 16th 2011 5:30PM
Miranda Cosgrove of 'iCarly' on 'The Talk'Miranda Cosgrove, better known to your young daughter and perhaps to you as 'iCarly,' was on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) dishing about the shows and the pranks the cast members play on each other. Last season, for example, the precocious Cosgrove and her co-stars papered their producer's house.

"We totally massacred his house," Cosgrove said. And did that producer write it off to capricious youth and laugh about it? Well, not really. But he did get some revenge. "He was very upset. But he tricked us and he told us he called the police."

That, according to Cosgrove, freaked everybody out, and made them scramble for someone to blame it on. Ah, to be young and innocent. Enjoy it now, cast and crew of 'iCarly,' before too long the lawyers get involved and these interviews get ugly.

Noah MunckAfter three years as a recurring character on Nickelodeon's 'iCarly,' 14-year-old Noah Munck has been promoted to series regular.

As Carly's strange friend Gibby, Munck has perfected his character's odd trademark move: a shirtless dance. The actor, who has been shedding his clothing for Nickelodeon's tweens since age 11, told TV Guide that tearing his shirt off is not a skill that came naturally.

"I was weirded out by it at first, and I was really nervous about doing it," he said. "But then it became a regular daily activity ... I can't go anywhere now without people yelling 'Gibby! Take your shirt off!'"

New TV on DVD Releases This Week

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 29th 2010 6:02PM
Sports NightHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Not sure why the first season of 'Sports Night' is being released again. Actually, the series has been released as "Complete Series" packages twice now (there were only two seasons), and the 10th Anniversary edition is still available so I'm not sure what 'Sports Night' fan would spend money on the first season alone. It doesn't look like there's anything on it that you can't get on the other set.

  • 'The Abbott & Costello Show' - Complete Series Collector's Edition
  • 'Alvin & The Chimpmunks' - Cinderella Cinderella
  • 'Ben 10: Alien Force' - Vol. 6
