* BrokenBase: The cancellation caused the usual rumors for an unexpected cancellation- the main star didn't want to do it, the creator pissed off the network or didn't want to do it themselves- before Jim O'Doherty explained why- the network decided to cancel most, if not all, of its live action TV lineup, in favor of setting up ''Series/SamAndCat''.
** Even worse, the Sam & Cat issue was made irrelevant when Alloy Entertainment (who owns the book series) was purchased by Creator/WarnerBros. in June 2012-''halfway through the show's run''. Between both of the above it's a miracle ''How To Rock'' was even allowed to stay on the main channel at all, let alone air the rest of it's episodes as a regular fall season.

* PragmaticAdaptation: Though not too much compared to other book-to-[=KidCom=] adaptations; most of the changes between the show and the book revolve around the book's resolution and the fact that, if the show had followed it, the main protagonist-antagonist dynamic would be completely absent.
