Watch Big Time Rush

Big Time Rush is a Nickelodeon sitcom about the lives of four teenagers who are thrust into fame's spotlight after being chosen to become the next big boy band. Over 50 episodes have been produced, making it one of Nickelodeon's longest-running and most popular programs. The core cast is made up of James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson. The name of the boys' band, Big Time Rush, also provides the show's namesake. When they were signed to produce the show, the boys also signed a legitimate, real-life record deal through which they have released two full-length albums and several singles.

The show debuted on Nickelodeon in January of 2010 and has become one of the channel's most successful shows. It is currently in its third season, airing new episodes every Monday at 7:30 p.m. eastern time. Average episodes run 30 minutes long, but a few special events like the pilot episode have warranted 60 minute run times.

The plot of the show itself is very whimsical; it shows the boys working through a variety of issues, including dealing their overbearing and self-righteous record producer, Gustavo, trying to write quality music to please their record label, and battling through relationships, all while still attending school and trying to make good grades. In the show, the boys are former hockey players and must also learn how to cope with their new-found fame and how to adjust to the new, foreign world of stardom. The show does this through the lens of humor and does an excellent job of making each member of BTR a unique character.

After its second season, the franchise spawned a full-length movie that premiered on Nickelodeon on March 10, 2012, attracting over 4 million viewers. Entitled "Big Time Movie," it depicts the four boys taking a crack at espionage as they embark on a quest to save the daughter of an MI6 agent.

Big Time Rush has garnered many awards throughout its lifetime, both as the show and as the band. The show has been nominated for "Favorite TV Show" at Kids' Choice Awards in several different countries, winning the category in the 2011 Kids' Choice Awards Mexico, among others. The band won "Favorite Musical Group" at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards as well as the 2012 Teen TV Awards. Big Time Rush's first album, BTR, reached as high as the third spot on the Billboard 200 and sold over 500,000 copies.
