Crushin’ on Nickelodeon

Posted By RabbitEars

Isn’t it romantic? Well, not to me, personally, but I’m sure plenty of teeny- and tweeny-boppers will be crushing on Nickelodeon’s “Crush Night” programming event, airing Feb. 7, the week before Valentine’s Day, from 8-9:30pm ET/PT. Pop idol David Archuleta and iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove co-host the event, which celebrates teen romance with songs (Archuleta performs his current hit “Crush”) and the premieres of some new episodes of hot Nick shows.

First up, Archuleta plays himself in “iRocked the Vote,” a new episode of iCarly, as a contestant on an American Idol-like singing competition series who gets a huge spike in votes after being cheered on Carly’s (Cosgrove) webcast. Next, on True Jackson, VP, True tries to mend Max’s broken heart by fixing him up with her school’s librarian. Then, The Naked Brothers Band Valentine’s special features the debuts of two new tunes from the band — “Jesse” and “No Night is Perfect” — as Nat grudgingly agrees to appear on a dating show as a celebrity contestant. Unfortunately, his absentee girlfriend Rosalina suddenly appears back in town, giving Nat a lot of ’splainin to do.

Crush Night encores on Feb. 15, with the additional bonus of Archuleta performing his new single, “A Little Too Not Over You,” for the first time on television. In the encore, Archuleta and Cosgrove will also be answering crush-related questions submitted by viewers through
