The OC Almost Over?

We always fall in love with the coming of age high school dramas that never know where to go after a few years since the group has to graduate. Unfortunately, this year The OC was losing steam and even had to pull a few ratings stunts to maintain our interest. Looks like FOX doesn't have much faith in the future of the show either. E Online reports:

Fox is retooling its strategy as it heads into the Thursday-night fray this fall.

Instead of sending its 9 p.m. staple, The O.C., into battle against CSI and Grey's Anatomy every week, the network announced Wednesday that it has ordered up a mere 16 episodes of the rich-kid drama for 2006-07.

If the network airs all 16 new episodes in a row, it will be out of O.C. by February, giving Fox the opportunity to take a midseason replacement for a test drive, Variety reported Wednesday.

We hope the network gives them a chance to take the show in another direction. Weekly Adam Brody banter would be missed if The OC was canceled.

I'm from South Australia PP. Lol. But you weren't talking to me I don't believe. Btw, it pissed me off about Veronica Mars cause I don't understand exactly what's going on in the show nowdays since they stopped showing and started. And they axed one tree hill here too grrr.

I've never watched the OC nor do I plan to. I'd watch both CSI and Grey's ANY day.

The OC is my fav show!! Love it! We havent gotten to the end of season 3 yet! There's 2 more episodes left but no huge surprise to me cos I found out off here ages ago that Marissa is killed off. I don't see much future for the show now. But I hope I am proved wrong!

jennifer, I haven't seen an episode of Sex and the City either, and I really don't plan on starting. I just don't get the appeal.

I hated high school so that's probably why I don't like this show. They should make a college show. Now THAT would be fun!

I've never watched sex in the city just because I never thought it was worth watching, seemed like it would be a desparation show......ha.....any of the others you named either, except i did watch the Sopranos only because my hus. is Italian and he liked it.....I eventually stopped watching it though..

If the OC ends I don't know what I will do...oh wait...Isn't that the same way I felt about Friends? I guess I survived, but the OC is definetly my "let's bring back old memories of high school hour"...with out a lot of the drama and other stuff.

I hope that they are able to make it work. Marissa was the worst character ever, so glad she is gone. And Ryan annoys me too.

TOTALLY SUCKS!!! But by killing of Marissa and having the other 3 main characters going to different schools (Berkeley, East Coast and Seth at home the first semester), it makes complete sense. I will still watch and just have to TIVO Greys. I heart Ben.
