Fox Pulls the Plug on The O.C.

I am sad to report that the idiots who run the Fox network have pulled the plug on one of the best shows on tv, The O.C. The show was just starting to recover momentum after last year's disappointing season, which focused too much on not-the-sharpest-knife-in-the-drawer Marissa Cooper. Newsflash to the empty suits in management at Fox - if you want to save the show, all you have to do is put it on another night. Trying to force it on Thursday night against some stiff competition like The Office, Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy is suicide. Move it to another night in place of one of your mindless shows, and it will do fine in the ratings. The irony is that Mischa Barton is probably rejoicing, thinking that the show couldn't survive without her, when the truth is the story line last year that focused so heavily on her is what drove the audience away.
