Former 'Blue's Clues' Host Steve I'm Ready To Fight John Cena For My Old Hosting Gig!

3/13/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Former "Blue's Clues" host Steve Burns is ready to take on 16-time WWE champ John Cena for his old post when the beloved Nickelodeon show is rebooted later this year.

Steve, who hosted "Blue's Clues" for 7 years, told us part of the magic of the show was that there was an average Joe in the driver's seat. So far, Nickelodeon hasn't announced who's gonna be the new host, and Steve's still in the running, but production is strongly considering a female stepping in to fill Steve's old, green-striped polo.

Cena auditioned for the hosting gig during the reboot announcement in a green-striped polo, too. Unclear if it was for real or not, but Steve seems up for the fight regardless.

Miranda Cosgrove Disney Stalker Arrested Again For Sending Creepy Emails

12/23/2017 12:30 AM PST

Miranda Cosgrove is still dealing with her stalker more than 2 years after he was ordered to stay away from her, and now he could be facing prison time ... so say cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Joshua Stockton was arrested earlier this month for allegedly sending Miranda dozens of ominous emails. We're told the messages weren't threatening, but creepy nonetheless ... calling her a "goddess" and himself a "prince."

We broke the stories ... Stockton was sentenced to probation and treatment after pleading no contest to felony stalking in 2015 after creeping on her at Disneyland -- which violated a previous restraining order she had taken out against him.

After the sentencing, he continued to pursue her online and got sent back to his treatment facility with a stern warning from the judge ... another slip-up could mean 4 years in prison.

'Drake & Josh' Show House Hits the Market

12/15/2017 2:13 PM PST
Exclusive Details

The abode Drake Bell and Josh Peck called home on their popular Nickelodeon show just hit the market ... and it's got plenty of room.

The San Fernando Valley crib show producers used for exterior shots is up for a cool $1.85 million. It's got 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a tennis court and a pool.

Drake and Josh shared a bedroom on TV ... but the real crib has enough space for both brothers, their parents and little sister -- played by Miranda Cosgrove -- to each have their own room.

'Zoey 101' Star I Thought Baby's Parents Were Dead ... No Idea It Was Heroin

4/3/2017 2:58 PM PDT

Matthew Underwood thought he was looking at a couple of dead bodies -- not heroin users -- when he rescued a baby from a car crash police say was triggered by drug abuse.

The former "Zoey 101" star walked us through the scene he came upon after a woman passed out from heroin and crashed into a tree. The baby was in the back seat along with the father ... who was also high as a kite.

Matt says he didn't have time to think with the kid's safety on the line, but still managed to play the hero until the cavalry arrived.

'Zoey 101' Star Saves Baby From Heroin-Fueled Car Crash

4/3/2017 10:51 AM PDT

Former "Zoey 101" star Matthew Underwood rescued a 4-month-old baby after the infant's parents passed out on drugs and crashed their car ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Matthew was one of the first people on the scene of a car wreck last Thursday in Port St. Lucie, FL ... where a female driver cut across 6 lanes of traffic on a busy street and crashed into a tree.

We're told she passed out at the wheel with a syringe full of heroin in her arm, with her baby daddy passed out in the back seat. Their baby was in an unsecured car seat next to the father.

According to the police report ... Matt saw the parents passed out, removed the infant -- who was not injured -- and had his brother call 911.

Matt also shot video of the scene before cops arrived. The mother later told cops she'd just bought heroin to try for the first time. The dad had a pill bottle full of Alprazolam (generic Xanax), a smoking pipe and a 2nd syringe laying next to him.

Matt tells us he decided to record the scene once he saw the parents passed out. He wanted to document the scene before he intervened in case things went south. He says he couldn't have just driven by without helping.

Both parents were booked for child neglect and drug possession. The baby was turned over to a family member.

Kobe Bryant SLIIIMMEEEDDD ... At Nickelodeon Awards

7/15/2016 6:47 AM PDT

Kobe Bryant is probably still cleaning the liquid gold out of his ears this morning ... after getting DOUSED in gold slime last night at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards! 

Kobe was accepting the Legend Award -- the final award of the night -- when the Nickelodeon people opened up the gold spray ... and drenched the NBA superstar. 


Amanda Bynes I Wasn't Invited To 'All That' Reunion

3/25/2016 12:30 AM PDT

Amanda Bynes won't be part of Nickelodeon's "All That" reunion -- she wasn't even invited.

Sources close to Bynes tell us she found out about the reunion when a trailer was released online ... she never got a heads up from producers. 

Bynes got her start on the '90s sketch comedy series, and went on to star in her own Nickelodeon show, "The Amanda Show," a few years later.

Amanda tells friends she would've declined the offer anyway, because her focus these days is fashion, not acting.

As we reported, the "All That" reunion won't feature new material. Instead it will be a lot of reminiscing with "All That" alums Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server.

Maybe producers just asked Ashley by mistake ...

'All That' Reunion No New Material ... For Now

3/24/2016 9:04 AM PDT

"All That" fans might've prematurely slimed themselves over Nickelodeon's reunion announcement -- TMZ has learned the special isn't what it seems. 

Nick sources tell us the reunion won't have any new sketches -- no Repairman, no Vital Information, nada -- instead it'll be reruns of Nick's classic '90s shows with commentary in between from cast members Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server.

But there's still hope for a REAL reunion -- with new sketches -- according to Tamberelli.

The chances are solid since Thompson, Tamberelli and Server all still do sketch comedy -- sometimes together -- and Danny believes they'd be down if their schedules allowed it. Mitchell's back on Nick with a new show.

Denberg -- the only non-performing cast member -- is a wedding officiant. But Tamberelli says if she or anyone is on the fence, he'll press them hard to get on board.  

All they need now is a green light from Nickelodeon.

'Legends of the Hidden Temple' Host Back For TV Film Remake

3/23/2016 7:30 AM PDT

"Legends of the Hidden Temple" host Kirk Fogg is a lost treasure that has just been found again. 

We got Fogg doing the TV remake in his hosting outfit ... 20 years after the game show was yanked off the air, and it looks like he's living the life of Dorian Gray.

Producers were hounding Fogg, who's been out of the biz for years, for a cameo.  

No word how many saving bonds they had to give him -- if you're a fan you get it.

Set the clock for 3 minutes!!! 

'Legends of the Hidden Temple' Gunning for Original Host ... In Upcoming Movie

3/7/2016 12:30 AM PST

The host of that awesome (old) kids game show "Legends of the Hidden Temple" is on the verge of a comeback ... because he's in talks to cameo in the upcoming movie version of the show. 

In case you didn't know ... producers are turning the classic Nickelodeon show into a movie -- which reportedly focuses on 3 siblings who embark on a crazy jungle adventure.  

But to add to the nostalgia ... producers have reached out to the original host, Kirk Fogg, to make a cameo.  

Since there is no game show element to the movie, we're told producers are scripting a part for Fogg that will pay homage to his duties on the '90s show.  

And BONUS -- we're told Olmec, the talking Mayan head, will also get a role in the flick.

And remember the old team names?? The green monkeys, red jaguars and silver snakes?? We're told producers are also trying to find a way to incorporate those things into the movie too! 

Sounds awesome ... just one question -- when's the 'Guts' movie???

Cam Newton 'I Wanna Be' Kids Show Was Stolen ... Author Claims

1/7/2016 4:59 PM PST

Cam Newton's side job -- hosting and producing a kids show for Nickelodeon -- could be in jeopardy ... because the show was allegedly ripped off from a children's author.

The author, Nick Katsoris, just filed a lawsuit over "I Wanna Be" ... the show where the Carolina Panthers superstar QB will help kids make their dreams come true. In his suit, Katsoris says he went to Nickelodeon twice to pitch a show based on his 2007 "Dream Day Contest."

The contest featured a character called Loukoumi the Lamb -- from his series of books -- and asked kids to finish the phrase, "I WANT TO BE A _____ BECAUSE ..."

According to the suit, Katsoris hired talent agency IMG to produce a reality show special, which aired on FOX in October 2014.

He then pitched it to Nickelodeon in July 2015, and then a couple months later ... the network announced it was doing "I Wanna Be" with Cam, an IMG client.

Katsoris says they merely swapped "Loukoumi for Cam Newton." He wants the court to block Nickelodeon and IMG from using the title, and to stop the release of the show later this year.

'Big Time Rush' Star POSSIBLE DRONE SIGHTING At Secret Service Golf Tourney

6/4/2014 12:25 AM PDT

What do Secret Service members do when they're not protecting the President ... or boozing in Colombia?? THEY GOLF!!! 

And at a recent Secret Service charity golf tournament in L.A., there was definitely some sort of drone keeping watch from the sky. 

TMZ Sports has obtained footage showing a fast-moving flying object hovering over the event -- where stars like Kendall Schmidt -- the lead singer from "Big Time Rush" who joined current and past agents on the links at Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes. 

We're told the event raised a ton of cash for families of former agents ... including $2,500 from Schmidt, who sponsored the first tee.

As for the U.F.O. ... our sources on the course tell us the drone hovered over the area throughout the day, zipping around the sky. Unclear if was it was keeping watch over the agents ... or just recording the action for fun. 


Jennette McCurdy Feud with Nickelodeon Is All About Money

4/2/2014 7:36 AM PDT
Jennette McCurdy's beef with Nickelodeon is strictly about the almighty dollar ... and how she makes less than her "Sam & Cat" co-star Ariana Grande ... TMZ has learned.

McCurdy was a no-show at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend, and took to Twitter to air her grievances, writing, "I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing."

McCurdy was quick to explain she was talking about Nickelodeon and NOT her racy photo scandal.

Our sources say the source of McCurdy's dissatisfaction is rooted in her paycheck. We're told the pint-sized star is pissed that Grande makes WAY MORE money than her and she's been trying to renegotiate her deal ... so far to no avail.

The show is one of the most popular on the network, but production has been halted and so far a second season has yet to be ordered.

We're told McCurdy doesn't have a problem with Grande personally ... just with Nickelodeon. For their part, a rep for the network says, "We have nothing but the utmost respect for Jennette and her talent."
