A big time producer wants to make iCarly into a hit T.V. show after seeing how much his daughter loves watching their web show. At first it turns out great because of them getting paid for doing iCarly on T.V., taking rides in the limo, and getting a new band. After the first rehearsal, Carly, Sam, and Freddie begin to regret letting the producer make iCarly into a T.V. show, because he starts to make bad changes which destroy the quality of the show. The producer decides to get rid of the iCarly band to fit in Zeebo the dinosaur, Sam is fired for being pushy and aggressive and gets replaced by an untalented "princess" of a movie actress, Amber Tate, and the producer makes Freddie do janitorial work. Meanwhile, with the kids at the T.V. studio, Mrs. Benson and Spencer try to fill the void by acting like a family to each other. In the end, after Carly has had enough of the changes, she tells the producer that the show isn't even iCarly anymore and the producer agrees with her. Carly gets the rights to the title back, and the producer has something different in mind for Zeebo the dinosaur and the bad movie actress who replaced Sam. He puts them in another T.V. show, which performs terribly. Meanwhile, with the regained iCarly title back, Carly, Sam, and Freddie change iCarly back to the way it originally was. To celebrate the return of the real iCarly, the lead of the iCarly band performs his favorite song.
