Pair of Kings recorded at Sunset Gower Studios before moving to Hollywood Center for its third and final season. Shake It Up filmed at LA Center Studios (as well as the second and third seasons of Good Luck Charlie). Jonas is the only production as of far to record in a single-camera setup with film cameras rather than the normal multicam using video cameras. It was also filmed on location with closed sets.

Notes:

  • Both "That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana" and "Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana" are each counted as three separate episodes (the former being That's So Raven, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Hannah Montana, while the latter being Wizards of Waverly Place, The Suite Life on Deck and Hannah Montana). "Take This Job and Love It" is officially counted as a Hannah Montana episode, "Weasels on Deck" is counted as an I'm in the Band episode, "Charlie Shakes It Up" is counted as a Good Luck Charlie episode, and "Austin & Jessie & Ally All Star New Year," "Lab Rats vs. Mighty Med," and "Good Luck Jessie: NYC Christmas" are counted as an episode for both series, due to them being a separate event (part one of "Austin & Jessie & Ally All Star New Year" is produced as an Austin & Ally episode while part 2 was produced as a Jessie episode. Part one of "Lab Rats vs. Mighty Med" was produced as a Lab Rats episode while part 2 was produced as a Might Med episode.

"Jessie's Aloha-holidays with Parker and Joey" is officially counted as a Jessie one-hour episode with Liv and Maddie characters.
  • A crossover between shows did not take place in 2008 due to the complications of the 2007–08 WGA strike.
