Watch Sam & Cat
Sam & Cat sees a return and union of two Nickelodeon comedy alumni, Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande, in a new Dan Schneider sitcom featuring the two sidekicks from each character's respective show founding a babysitting business for a little side cash. The new show is a crossover and spin off from two previously successful Nickelodeon ventures.
Sam Puckett, played by Jennette McCurdy, has been on a motorcycle road trip up the West Coast since the end of her last adventure with her best friend Carly on their successful webshow, iCarly. In a random act of happenstance, Sam eyes Cat, played by Ariana Grande, being thrown into a garbage truck and rescues her from a crushing fate. Impressed by Sam's act of heroics and human decency, Cat offers Sam to become roommates after her grandmother Nona, played by Maree Cheatham, vacates in favor of a retirement village.
The series chronicles the absolutely ridiculous antics of the titular Sam and Cat as they try to make rent by wrangling unruly infants, toddlers, and kids. Sam, a child inside, seems a poor fit for a position of authority over children, but her big heart shines through. Cat is a bit more fragile than her friend, but her sweet and empathetic nature make her perfectly qualified for child-rearing.
Also featured on the show are Cameron Ocasio, who plays neighbor Dice. Dice is a man living in the fast lane, often found fencing celebrity hair and knock-off merchandise. His problems with the law may throw a wrench in the girls' machinations, but his silver tongue can get them out of hot water. Dice also assumes management duty of a slow-minded MMA fighter Goomer, a dumb but capable fighter.
Cat's aforementioned sleepwalking grandmother is also a regular cast member, always available to offer the girls help or advice. Max and Chloe, two of the more well-behaved children Sam and Cat babysit, are recurring characters on the program who function as a couple more comedy catalysts.
Sam & Cat premiered on Nickelodeon in the United States on June 8, 2013 with a running time of 23 minutes. The first season will last for forty episodes airing every Saturday at 8 P.M.

Sam & Cat News
After one season, "Sam & Cat" is calling it good. The Nickelodeon show, which stars pop singer Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy, "will not be producing more episodes," said the network in a statement. Grande addressed the cancelation via her social media outlets, and draws attention to the rumors that salary negotiations and problems off-set were to blame for the show ending. "I want to thank Nickelodeon for making a childhood dream of mine come true, for being a family to me, for being so accomodating and supportive of my multitasking with my music career, and for of course introducing me to many of my fans however many years ago.
