FROM MTV NEWS: Starlets Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy are returning to TV this weekend with the "Victorious"/"iCarly" spin-off, "Sam & Cat." Now, if you're familiar with the dynamic duo, you know that in addition to acting, the two have singing as skill on their resumes as well. So will there be tunes aplenty on their new series?
"We didn't want to sing on the show. We had the option," Ariana told MTV News. "I think we just wanted to do like a TV show because I feel like since 'Hannah Montana,' it's been so cool for kid's shows to be musically driven. I don't think there's a show for kids out there now that doesn't have music."
"Sam & Cat" premieres on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on Nick.

Fans of Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy need to mark June 26 on their calendars. That's the day the two Nick stars celebrate their birthdays. And, it’s a big one for both of them. Ariana will bid her teen years good-bye as she turns 20, and Jennette can party all she wants now that she will soon be 21.
The "Sam & Cat" stars are still trying to nail down how they might spend their joint big day. "I’m trying to think. It’s my 21st. I haven’t had a party in like years, I think since I was 13 was my last official party," Jennette confessed to MTV News. "So I don’t know. I’ve been toying with some different ideas, but now it seems like scheduling conflicts are kind of interfering."
It's been 15 years since we first met best friends Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) on HBO's ground-breaking series "Sex and the City" (based on the novel by Candace Bushnell). While the dating scene has changed considerably since the series debuted (hello, OKCupid and Snapchat!), the truths about life and love that it offered up remain relevant.
As we celebrate the show's 15th anniversary, we reminisce about our favorite episodes.
With its bevy of bodacious babes and sunny setting, The CW's "Privileged" is one of our favoritest shows to ever gain admittance into the Annals of TV Series Gone Too Soon. (Here's hoping she's having a torrid love affair with "Freaks and Geeks"...) Canceled after its first season, "Privileged" followed Yale graduate Megan Smith (played by the perpetually plucky Joanna Garcia Swisher), who accepted a job nannying for a pair of spoiled Palm Beach brats with the hopes of writing a book about her experiences.
The series helped launch the careers of several actors—including "Pretty Little Liars" starlet Lucy Hale, who played twin Rose Baker. Though some stars haven't fared quite so well, we couldn't help but notice that this week in particular has been a very good one (dare we say, a "Privileged" one?) for the series' alumni. Let's take a look:
Ancient vampires, teleporting teenage dreamboats, aliens in love, and Mary, Queen of Scots: There is quite the collection of amazing characters coming to the CW this year, and not to brag or anything, but we've been hanging out with them all morning...on the intertubes.
The CW has released the official trailers for all of its new series in the 2013-14 season, giving audiences their first major taste of the shows that will shortly be duking it out for fandom supremacy and/or precious space on our overstuffed DVRs.
The upcoming shows include "Star-Crossed" (a forbidden love story with an extraterrestrial twist), "The 100" (a post-apocalypse survival drama featuring juvie delinquents as post-nuclear lab rats), "Reign" (a bodice-ripping tale of romance and politics in 16th century France), "The Tomorrow People" (a third-time's-the-charm reboot of the classic sci-fi series about mutant telekinetic teens and the thugs who hunt them), and "The Originals" (the long-awaited spin-off featuring some favorite bloodsuckers from "The Vampire Diaries".) And if you're having a hard time deciding which of those sounds most exciting...well, so are we, but maybe after another 20 viewings of these video promos a favorite will emerge. Possibly.
Tonight's the night! The third season of MTV's supernatural series "Teen Wolf" premieres at 10 p.m. ET. Shall we all howl at the moon in unison? (Just kidding...maybe...)
Of course, we're not the only ones enthused; the stars are too!
"We pick up tonight with her returning, and she sees Scott, and all those things come back to her," Crystal Reed (who plays Allison) told MTV News, previewing the season. "And she's made a pact with her father not to be involved with werewolf hunting anymore, because it's really not that good. Things start to happen in Beacon Hills, and she finds herself starting to question whether she can keep that commitment anymore, just because she's a person who can't just stand by when bad things are happening. She has to be involved, and she has to help even if that means lying and doing things undercover. So that's where we are with that."

The night has finally come to say "Thank You and Goodbye" to ABC Family’s longest-running original scripted series, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." What a better way to do it than by seeing our favorite characters pressed to make some life-changing decisions and dressed in the ever stylish cap and gown.
While we can only imagine how the outcome of tonight’s episode will bring us to tears, this will certainly not be a final goodbye for the actors of the hit series. We know what star Shailene Woodley is up to for the next few months (hello, every YA adaptation, ever), but what of her co-stars? Let's find out!
The "Girls" of HBO may be short one guy since breaking up with Christopher Abbott (a.k.a. Marnie's on-again-off-again boyfriend Charlie) in early April, but they're hardly waiting by the phone for him to call. Deadline has the scoop that a new hottie has been added to the cast of the series.
Meet Michael Zegen, who is no stranger to network watchers seeing as he plays mobster Bugsy Siegel on the drama "Boardwalk Empire."
ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars" doesn't return for its fourth season until June 11, but executive producer and writer I. Marlene King is already revealing Rosewood's secrets.
Marlene took to Twitter today to spill a major spoiler about the upcoming season debut—namely, that the identity of a certain royal rabble-rouser will be unveiled!
"The Queen Of Hearts from the Halloween train will b unmasked in the premiere. U will be shocked to discover Shims identity! #PLLSpoiler," she wrote.
Another hottie has entered the "Game of Thrones," and we couldn’t be more excited to see Ed Skrein spice up our Sunday nights. So, to celebrate, we’re naming him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Ed, and keep reading for more details about him!
