It could be the biggest television show you've never seen, or even heard of. But make no mistake, Nickelodeon's "iCarly" is a ratings powerhouse and a household name — for American tweens. This is a show that got 12.2 million viewers for its January season opener. That's more eyeballs than "America's Got Talent" received as last week's top-rated show. It seems that everything series creator Dan Schneider touches turns to gold, and "iCarly" is the latest and greatest example of his Midas touch. Schneider's previous shows, "Zooey 101," "The Amanda Show," and "Drake and Josh" have all been commercial successes, often spinning off characters who go on to star in their own hit series. Schneider might look familiar to you, too. He was a kid actor himself, best known as Dennis Blunden from the 80's sitcom "Head of the Class."
   John Donvan spent a week on the set of iCarly, where he witnessed a show progress from table read to taping. Tune in tonight to find out about the show America's kids are tuning into. In the video below, "iCarly" star Miranda Cosgrove takes Donvan on a set tour. Have you ever seen iCarly? Does this show have crossover appeal?
