Drake & Josh is another popular TV show by Dan Schneider. It has been mentioned once, in the episode Who Did It to Trina? and twice on TheSlap. It is known that Cat, Jade, Tori, Robbie, and Rex all have watched the show at least once.
The plot-line of the series is that Drake's mother marries Josh's father, making the two stepbrothers. They are in the same school and grade, but they are complete opposites; Josh is good in school and always well-behaved while Drake gets bad grades and breaks tons of rules. They put up with multiple challenges, many of them including their devious little sister, Megan. The show ran for 4 seasons.
