Following the success of its last series, Nickelodeon show Me:TV is commissioned for a third series over the February half-term.

Launched in October 2006, the show pulled in quarter of a million viewers each day, making it the number-one kids' show in cable and satellite homes during the October school half term in its 10-12noon slot, with an average audience share of 8.2%.

Presented by Sy and Ugly Mark from Nickelodeon's The Crunch, with Genie in the House stars Vicky and Katie, the live studio programme allows kids to compete on the show via their broadband webcam. The five-day run culminates in a live Friday final, featuring the winners from each day's interactive competition.

Nickelodeon UK senior vice president, general manager and director of channels, Howard Litton said: “Nickelodeon has a superb history of producing top quality live programming. This commission enables us to showcase that expertise combined with the very best interactive technology for kids”.

The show is produced in-house by Nickelodeon UK's live and interactive departments, and features other Nickelodeon show Drake and Josh, Genie in the House, SpongeBob SquarePants and Neds Declassified during its two-hour slot.
