Drake & Josh is an American situation comedy created by Dan Schneider that ran from January 11, 2004 until September 16, 2007.[2]

Premise Edit

Drake & Josh is focused on a pair of step-brothers of opposite personalities. Drake Parker is a popular but immature aspiring musician idolized by his schoolmates and able to court a countless array of girls with ease, whereas Josh Nichols has poor luck with dating and popularity. Drake and Josh live in San Diego, California, with Josh's odd, unfortunate, geeky father, a weatherman named Walter; Drake's loving mother Audrey and manipulative and conniving younger sister Megan. The boys are often involved in comedic misadventures and obstacles while also handling teenage situations such as school, dating, and popularity. Over the course of the series, the character arcs of both boys, and their relationship, develop: Josh loses weight and becomes more popular, while Drake matures and becomes more caring towards other people, especially his stepbrother.

The boys are left at home in San Diego, California after Audrey and Walter go on a ten-day cruise. Drake and Josh are told to take Megan to the airport so she can visit her friend in Denver, Colorado, but they accidentally send her on a flight to Los Angeles, California. Drake and Josh go to Hollywood to get Megan back, end up stopping a multi-billion dollar heist, and booking a guest-spot for Drake on TRL. The TV film aired on January 6, 2006; according to TV Guide, it was the highest rated program on all of cable during its opening week.

A new Drake & Josh TV film tentatively entitled "Drake & Josh: Best Christmas Ever" began production in July 2008, and premiered on December 5, 2008. The title was later changed to "Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh". Creator Dan Schneider returned as executive producer, with Marjorie Cohn and Lauren Levine co-executive producing. Michael Grossman directed the feature. The film centers around the boys who are working as Santa's helpers in a mall when Drake promises a little girl that her foster family will have "The Best Christmas Ever"—and then try to fulfill that promise while a grumpy policeman tries to stop them. While the boys are not enjoying their time, Audrey and Walter are feeling worse on their vacation because they have to stay in a hut while in a hurricane.

The TV film was broadcast in HD format, unlike the previous TV film Drake & Josh Go Hollywood. It also featured Henry Winkler and MMA fighter Kimbo Slice.

The premiere of Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh broke the record of most viewers for the premiere of a Nickelodeon film with 9.10 million viewers, a title previously held by iGo to Japan.
