I'll seriously be pissed if Victorious is getting canceled because of Sam & Cat. I'll refuse to watch that show.—

Fans of Nickelodeon hit “Victorious” are blaming the network’s upcoming slate of programs for killing off the show by poaching actors for new offerings.
This fall’s “Sam & Cat” stars Ariana Grande and Jeanette McCurdy, who will reprise their characters from “Victorious” and “iCarly.” The show faced a backlash, though, after fans learned that “Victorious” would not be renewed for a fourth season.
“Victorious” and “Sam & Cat” star Ariana Grande took to Twitter to explain the situation directly to fans.
Dan Schneider, who created all of the shows involved, rushed out a blog post to explain the situation and asked viewers to “please not be angry with … ANY of the Victorious cast members or staff.”
Fans seemed appeased.
“Victorious” star Victoria Justice kept things positive.
