Last week, we had the honor of sitting down with Josh Schwartz, the mastermind behind The OC, for an exclusive BuddyTV interview. Josh created The OC at the age of 26, becoming the youngest person to ever be in charge of the day-to-day operations of a major TV show. We talked about the origins of The OC, the creative resurgence of the fourth season, and the the show‘s future.The OC airs on FOX every Thursday at 9PM ET/PT.BuddyTV: You were the youngest person to ever be in charge of a prime time network TV show. How did you get into the business at such a young age? Read more »
Well, so it begins. The carousel is getting started and the under performing television programs are meeting their inevitable fates. I don‘t totally disagree with anything that either FOX or NBC are doing, but I always question the point of producing shows that any normal guy could see were destined for failure.Who on earth thought that the Lithgow/Tambor golden years comedy 20 Good Years would succeed? Anyone? Well, no more. 20 Good Years has been given the old boot and will be replaced by, to add insult to injury, a special two-hour edition of The Biggest Loser. Ouch.Here‘s the complete rundown of the changes: Read more »
We just got this tip from The CW Source, a blog that covers all things CW. They cite this story from TVGuide‘s Michael Ausiello, that hits on the possibility of The OC moving to The CW Network following this season. I‘m not sure what to make of this right now, except to say it wouldn‘t be the first time something like this has happened. Buffy the Vampire Slayer moved from the WB to UPN late in its run. The move went seamlessly.FOX has showed very little faith in The OC over the past two seasons and it‘d be nice if the show went to a network that actually cared. The OC has been absolutely spectacular this year and it‘d be a real shame if it were to end after this season.  Read more »
Variety has announced that NBC has ordered production of three high-profile pilots. All three are dramas that are quite unlike anything NBC currently has on air. NBC, despite what I believe to be a severe improvement in the quality of its shows (just this year, they‘ve brought us 30 Rock, Friday Night Lights, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and Heroes), the Peacock still toils away behind ABC and CBS. NBC has begun taking chances, which is admirable, and they seem to believe that ratings will eventually be born of quality. This is the correct state of mind for a network. It‘s nearly impossible to predict what show will be a hit, especially at the script stage.These are the three pilot orders: Read more »
Who would think that being geeky can be so sexy? For Adam Brody, life as a geek turns out to be triumphantly sweet. He proves that his wit, humor and ability to deliver Seth Cohen‘s character on the popular series The O.C. earns him the right to be called one of the "25 hottest stars under 25" in 2004 and 2005 by Teen People. Moreover, his nerdy and comical character comes out to be sexily appealing to the viewers as this upshot numerous recognitions like "Young Hollywood Hot 20" by US Weekly, Elle Girl Magazine Coolest Guy Celeb and Coolest TV Star, and winner of Teen Choice Awards for Choice Actor for Drama in 2004, 2005 and 2006.  Read more »

FOX has made it official: The OC will end after four seasons. In an announcement that has been expected for some time, with the fate of the once popular teen drama long being the source of much speculation, FOX has finally hammered the final nail in The OC‘s coffin. The season and series finale will air on February 22.Creator Josh Schwartz, in our interview with him last month, expressed that he would be open to a season 5, but it became fairly clear that a fifth season was unlikely. FOX has not been supportive of The OC over the past couple years, which is a shame. This was evidenced, quite clearly, when FOX ordered only sixteen episodes of the show this season, instead of the typical twenty-two. Read more »
Every time a show is canceled, be it an underdog like Surface, or a legendary dreadnought like The O.C., stalwart fans will launch into action threatening the offending network with email and snail-mail campaigns of epic proportions. The O.C.‘s bid for continued life began when the cancellation was a mere murmur with the defiant, and aptly named, Save The O.C. blog. The site has generated a fervent following of O.C. zealots, but is it having an impact?  Read more »
December is one of the more interesting TV months of the year. It‘s not the summer, when most shows are off the air, but it might as well be. With far more reruns than original episodes, December is a month that allows TV watchers to catch up with episodes of their favorite shows that they‘ve happened to miss. Viewers also want to prepare for the big shows that will be either premiering or returning in January.Our BuddyTV Fan Popularity Rankings (FPR) reflect this. Last month, we took the FPRs and juxtaposed them with Nielsen ratings to get a truer look at the actual popularity of a TV show. This month, we‘re going to look back at the weekly FPRs in December and see if we can decipher their meaning. Read more »

The series finale of The O.C. airs tonight, February 22. You probably remember that for the previous season finales, hardly any of the spoilers turned out to be accurate – that‘s because The O.C. producers made a point of throwing out foilers to keep the finales a surprise.Some of these possibly-fake spoilers include Taylor flying to Paris for a funeral, and Taylor and her mother going to San Diego to buy a house that looks just like their old one. Some sources claim there are going to be flashbacks to Marissa‘s funeral. Are any of these for real? I guess we‘ll find out tonight. So what do we know for sure? Well, the promos for The O.C. have certainly revealed a lot.  Read more »
Tonight, we must say goodbye to The O.C.  In its 4 year run the show has guided its audience through the often-tragic world of California living, adding romance and comedy along the way. All along the show has featured popular artists and newcomers alike, adding to the drama of each episode.  It is only fitting that tonight’s episode features Patrick Park’s “Life is a Song,” as we find out the conclusion in the lives of these characters we have followed for the past four seasons.  He is the singer-songwriter of the critically acclaimed album Loneliness Knows My Name.

The holiday season is different for everyone. What you and your family celebrates might have a long tradition, or might have no tradition, or maybe it‘s ever evolving.  The correlation between religious beliefs and holiday rituals has become more and more blurred as commercialization has permeated the holiday landscape.  Mostly, there is a lot of gift-giving, a lot of shopping, office parties, excess drinking, and time with the family (sometimes needed, sometimes unwanted).  On television, there are two brave TV shows that have chosen to buck the conventional rituals and traditions of Christmas and the schmaltzy “holiday episodes” that every single eighties sitcom aired once a year.  On The OC, Seth Cohen gave us Chrismukkah and on Seinfeld, Frank Costanza brought us Festivus.  Today, once and for all, we look to answer the question that has plagued our society for roughly five years: Which is the better TV holiday – Festivus or Chrismukkah? Read more »

<<PREVIOUS          NEXT>>One of the coolest dads ever on TV, The O.C.‘s Sandy Cohen (Peter Gallagher) was an aging hippie, a free spirit who wanted to use his law degree to help the underdog. This pursuit didn‘t curtail his other passions, surfing and singing, both of which make him instantly hotter than most boring dads who wouldn‘t know Kelly Slater from Sleater Kinney. Yes, his eyebrows could use a tweeze (or a weed wacker), but we‘d still gladly try to steal a car if it meant we could live in his pool house and enjoy a breakfast bagel with a good schmear. Read more »

Whoever thought that the High School Musical is nearly over is dead wrong.  In fact, the overly successful Disney movie is hitting the big screen soon, with the film being released in October.  Now MTV is getting into the game with The American Mall, a new movie musical premiering tonight at 9pm.Tired of the same old cheesy inspirational songs and love duets in the youthful High School Musical? Don’t give up just yet.

Where has Ben McKenzie gone?  The brooding star of The O.C. disappeared from our TV sets when that series bowed out after an abbreviated fourth season.  To be fair, he has been doing work both on the stage and in films.  Now, it appears that he‘s coming back to television.  NBC has picked up a pilot entitled LAPD from Jon Wells Productions and Warner Brothers.  It‘s an ensemble drama about the life and work of various LAPD detectives.  Regina King (24), Kevin Alejandro (Shark) and Michael McGrady (Daybreak) have already signed on for the pilot.  McKenzie has yet to officially sign for an as yet unspecified role, but talks are said to be in advanced stages.  Read more »
The world of Gossip Girl can never stay happy for long. Though the season 2 premiere featured Jenny (Taylor Momsen) finally getting some respect as a fashion intern and Dan and Serena putting aside their nonsense to get back together, the recent announcement of two new recurring characters will certainly put a stop to that.Willa Holland and John Patrick Amedori are joining Gossip Girl in recurring roles that will provide some trouble for the Humphrey children.

The Gossip Girl spin-off, set to take off via a 20-minute flashback on the CW series‘ May 11 episode, hasn‘t even received an official pick-up, but executive producer Josh Schwartz already has a lot of ideas for it.For instance, according to Schwartz, since the spin-off took place in the 80s when Serena‘s (Blake Lively) mom Lily (Kelly Rutherford) was in high school, it‘s very possible that she‘ll meet and even hang out with several characters from The O.C.“What we know is [O.C. characters] Kirsten Cohen, or Kirsten Nichols as she was born, and Jimmy Cooper lived in Newport Beach in the ‘80s,” he said.  “So there‘s a total possibility that in one episode, Lily could have been friends with Kirsten or Jimmy Cooper when they were young.  I would love to do that.” The CW has previously said that the spin-off will receive the green light depending on how the particular episode would fare in the ratings as well as the general public reception. Read more »
