Victorious (stylized as VICTORiOUS) is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, portrayed by Victoria Justice, who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts, while getting into screwball situations on a daily basis. The series premiered on March 27, 2010.



The show follows main character Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) who is accepted into Hollywood Arts High School, after taking her sister Trina's (Daniella Monet) place in a showcase. The storyline follows Tori she finds her place within Hollywood Arts High School, while meeting friends to help her along the way. Other students at the school, and the students who make up Tori's group of friends, include Andre Harris, (Leon Thomas III) a musical prodigy who quickly becomes a close friend to Tori; Robbie Shapiro (Matt Bennett), an awkward ventriloquist who carries around his puppet Rex (who is spoken to as a normal person); Jade West (Elizabeth Gillies), a sarcastic, mean girl who has a love-hate friendship with Tori; Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande), a sweet but naive girl who is supposedly bipolar; and Beck Oliver (Avan Jogia), a down-to-earth and handsome boy who is Jade's boyfriend.

iCarly crossover

The creator of iCarly and Victorious, Dan Schneider, announced a crossover of the two sitcom shows in the iCarly episode "iParty with Victorious." It premiered on June 11, 2011. It was counted as an iCarly episode and not as a Victorious episode.


Victorious is the firth series created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon, after The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, and iCarly.[5] Schneider first met Justice in 2005, when she was twelve and arrived to audition for the part of Lola Martinez on Zoey 101. Impressed by her energy and look, Schneider hired her and, after working with her on three episodes, called Nickelodeon to say, "I’ve got your next star."[6] Justice continued her role on Zoey 101 until the series ended in 2008. In the meantime, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon's main competitor, had experienced immense success with franchises like Hannah Montana and High School Musical, which featured original songs and generated revenue through music as well as television. Seeking to "follow where the kids are", Nickelodeon executives asked Schneider to create a music-based show for the channel.[6] Near the end of Zoey 101's run, Justice was summoned to meet with Schneider about a potential series starring her.[7] Victorious was the first show on Nickelodeon to premiere in the decade of 2010. Big Time Rush's first episode premiered two months earlier, but its original pilot premiered in 2009.

While discussing possible concepts for the series during the meeting, Justice mentioned that she had attended a performing arts middle school. The idea intrigued Schneider, who recognized the appeal of a series concerning fame.[7] "If there is anything I've learned about kids today—and I'm not saying this is good or bad—it's that they all want to be stars," said Schneider.[8] Marjorie Cohn, who was then Nickelodeon's executive vice president of original programming and development, agreed. "Every kid thinks they're five minutes away and one lucky circumstance from being famous," Cohn stated. She noted that Schneider's iCarly, a sitcom about a girl who hosts a popular web show, was spurred by the rise of YouTube celebrities and had become a successful show for Nickelodeon.[8]

On August 13, 2008, Nickelodeon announced that Justice had signed "an overall talent and music deal" with the company, agreeing to star in a then-untitled musical-comedy series about a girl who attends a performing arts high school.[9] While discussing the show's premise, Schneider stated that while it would be nice if more children "wanted to be teachers and social workers" instead of celebrities, "At least in Victorious, you see a world where they're all working on the talent part."[8] Nickelodeon Productions and the Columbia/Epic Label Group of Sony Music Entertainment agreed to co-produce the series as part of a partnership to develop talent and release their music.[10]

Perez Hilton, Josh Peck, Nathan Kress, Ke$ha, and Jerry Trainor have made special guest appearances on the show.

Filming of season 1 began on October 5, 2009 and ended on April 14, 2010 with 20 episodes produced.[11] The second season of Victorious finished filming on February 23, 2011.[12] In August 2011, Victoria Justice confirmed on her Twitter profile that she was returning to the Victorious set, as Season 3 began filming in late September.[13]


Several of the actors on Victorious had either appeared in Nickelodeon programs or Broadway musicals prior to Victorious's premiere. In addition to Zoey 101, Justice appeared on iCarly in the episode "iFight Shelby Marx" as Shelby Marx, as well as True Jackson VP, The Naked Brothers Band, and The Troop. She also co-starred with Jogia, who plays Beck, on the Nickelodeon television film Spectacular!. Monet guest starred in three episodes of Zoey 101,The live action Movie Grow up Timmy Turner and one episode of Supah Ninjas. Thomas not only guest starred in an episode of iCarly and The Brothers Band but had previously appeared in musicals such as runs of The Color Purple and Caroline, or Change and in the film August Rush.[14] Gillies and Grande had co-starred in the musical 13.[15][16]


The series is filmed at Nickelodeon Studios on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California.[17] According to Paula Kaplan, Nickelodeon's executive Vice President for talent, "In our adult world, nobody accommodates us for down time. But in a child's life on a set, we do take that seriously. At our studios on Sunset Boulevard, where we shoot iCarly and Victorious, the greenrooms are filled with games and Rock Band. We create an environment where they can have fun with their colleagues and take it easy."[18]

The series is set primarily at Hollywood Arts. Outdoor shots of Hollywood Arts depict Hollywood High School, which is located in the parking lot of Nickelodeon Studios.[19] According to David Hinkley of the New York Daily News, "Outside of school, Victorious has the same look as iCarly, with most of the action taking place on one main set with a few basic home/crib-furniture items." The show also has a BLIX machine from Zoey 101.[20]


Critical reception

The series as a whole earned generally mixed reviews. Variety magazine reviewer Brian Lowry wrote, "Victorious has been cobbled together with the wooden-headed market in mind."[21] David Hinkley of the New York Daily News says the series' format is nearly identical to iCarly's and hopes that the series will develop a "more distinctive personality" over the course of the season.[20] Roger Catlin of the Hartford Courant describes Victorious as "harmless but hardly entertaining".[22] Mark A. Perigard of the Boston Herald titled his review "Victorious is a big loser" and writes, "The bulk of the cast mugs for the cameras, probably to compensate for a script that could have been commissioned from fifth-graders."[23] Linda Stasi of the New York Post was mixed; she agreed that the show contained over-acting performers, "corny" dialogue and a "terribly, terribly loud laugh track", but believed it was "a surefire tween hit".[24]

However, reviewers were positive about Justice's performance and suggested that series' potential hinged on her. Hinkley comments, "At this point, Justice is better at singing than acting, and the show doesn't flow as smoothly as iCarly, but Justice has the personality and talent needed for a shot at being 'the Next Big Teen Thing'".[20] Perigard describes her as "undeniably appealing"[23] and Lowry states, "Justice is winsome and talented enough to provide the latest show a leg up in connecting with tween girls."[21]


The series premiere did well among viewers. The pilot episode, advertised as a "sneak preview" of the series, aired after the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards on March 27, 2010 to 5.7 million viewers. Victorious's second episode was advertised as the series' official premiere and drew a low 3.48 million viewers.[25] By comparison, Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush received 3.5 million viewers for its "sneak preview" debut in November 2009,[26] and 7.1 million Total viewers for its "premiere" in January 2010.[27]

On April 2, 2011, the season 2 premiere episode "Beggin' On Your Knees" became the most watched episode of the series to date, with 6.1 million total viewers.[28]


In fall 2011, Spin Master will release dolls and toys based on the show. In June 2011, Walmart announced an exclusive-to-Walmart product line for the show; including over 250 products, such as apparel, accessories, lunch boxes, t-shirts, soundtrack CDs, DVDs, etc.[29]
