In recent weeks VMAs and Emmys have been given out, and now it's time for the iCarly Awards. It's the inaugural year for the event, in which Carly, Sam and Freddie plan to honor the top user-generated content on their Web show. The categories are a bit... unusual, and include "Most Inane Hula-Hooper" and "Best Male Acrobat with Lots of Hair." The only problem? Spencer didn't make enough statuettes, and now he must recruit some helpers (in the form of swimsuit models) to churn out some more. — Jennifer Sankowski

Saturday Night Live

11:29/10:29c NBC
Megan Fox and friends kicked off the live-wire show's 35th season last week, and it all got interesting quickly. Fred Armisen played Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to dead-on perfection; the F-bomb was dropped; and the sketches were, as usual, hot and cold. So we now cut to tonight's second episode of the season, with Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) taking on hosting duties and flamboyant pop-electronica songstress Lady Gaga providing the music. — Dean Maurer
