I also can't believe OTH is still on the air. It should have ended either in season 4 or even last season would have been great ending to the show. OTH has been made fun a bunch of times on The Soup. The running off the with heart was one of the dumbest moments ever on TV.
FNL has Emmy worthy acting and writing and OTH most of the time has had average at best acting. The worst episodes of FNL would be more watchable than a lot of stuff on OTH. On FNL some of the younger actors/actresses improved over time. On OTH James Lafferty has never really improved as an actor. I recently lost a lot of respect for Paul Johansson after he made the comments in the below link about why OTH should be saved. There was a huge debate with CW over whether OTH or Life Unexpected should be saved. Both got saved but will have 13 episode trial runs before there is decision over which one should get a 22 episode season . One thing I noticed a couple of months back that Paul, Daphne Zuniga and the girl who plays Quinn were the only ones pleading for the show. Sophia Bush filmed a pilot for ABC which didn't get picked up. I think it is pretty obivious that most of the OTH cast was ready to move onto other projects.
