Tear Jerker / Dan Schneider
Victorious winning favorite TV show at the 2012 Kids Choice Awards, for reasons mentioned on its and iCarly's pages. It doubles as a Crowning Moment of Awesome for people who casually love all of Dan's shows equally, and definitely if you like Victorious a lot more than or hate iCarly, but not if you don't like Victorious much or hate it.
The bitter downfall of the earlier generation of the Schneiderverse in Sam & Cat when it was Overshadowed by Controversy due to likely true rumors of behind-the-scenes infighting that resulted in a harsh Martin and Lewis fall out between Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande (to a point Ariana, despite having deny rumors, even forbids questions about her co-star Jennette when she gives out interviews and leaving her out of her big Internet message thank you when she makes her swan song from the show as well as Jennette blaming Nick and Ariana for her acting career's downfall as the show was meant to be a vehicle for her doesn't help as well) and to this day they refused to talk about or to each other. This in turn would leave many Nick fans heartbroken as a result, especially when hearing the very negative production aspects that led to it's cancellation, after all the positive production stability in past shows. This show was also the last to feature most actors from earlier shows after over ten years, which makes Dan's latest entry Henry Danger a clean reboot for a new generation of Schneiderverse Production Posse.
