Jimmy Fallon will have some celebrity company when he guest-stars on iCarly this Saturday: His old SNL “Weekend Update” co-anchor, Tina Fey, is joining in the family-friendly fun, EW has learned. In the episode, titled “iShock America,” Fallon is so impressed by a few spoofs of his skits that were performed by Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) & co., he asks them to perform live on Late Night. The 30 Rock star/creator makes a brief cameo appearance during Fallon’s video chat invitation, which sends the gang packing for the Big Apple.

Saturday’s one-hour episode kicks off the second half of the Nick comedy’s fifth and final season, which wraps up in November. (Upcoming episodes include appearances by Emma Stone and the guys from Pawn Stars.) Fey, of course, will soon bid farewell to her show, as NBC’s 30 Rock kicks off its seventh and final season on Thursday.
