Of course both great shows but Victorious came after ICarly. ICarly set the standard, it was the original programme that allowed for Victorious to be successful. Many of the ideas came from the ICarly series and it was more accessible for both boys and girls. In Victorious it is more gaged towards girls not completely but more so than it is boys. Anybody could tune into ICarly and watch it because it was so universal and the actors, in my opinion were better.
