    If by some miracle the show gets the nod from the CW, they are going to have to do it without Josh. He's producer for 2 new shows next season that already got picked up.

    Yeah we mentioned that. He is on board for a thriller on NBC and something on the CW as I understand. Him already having a deal with the CW is a good sign though.

    You're right, 2 shows minimizes any chance have but there were plenty of shows that were totally "supposed" to be cancelled and they weren't...so I guess I got to hope. Especially after tonight's episode, where they really showed me how "old school" O.C. they could be...and I LOVE it.

    Well, Josh wrote "Gossip Girls" with Stephanie Savage, so it can't be all that bad, especially after what he saw happen with the o.c. when he didn't put his true effort toward it. This would also make sense why the last 2 episodes Josh wrote were also written with Stephanie. He used to write his mainly alone. Though, on the plus side for this new show, the 2 episodes they wrote were amazing, specifically last night's episode, The My 2 Dad's.

    I guess it's also a plus that Josh AND Stephanie will be working on the CW next season, through warner brothers!

    I emailed yesterday. Hopefully something will come of this, but I can't help but think nothing will. Who knows something could fall through with one of Josh's other shows though.

    Josh didn't technically write Gossip Girls, it is based on the novels by Cecily von Ziegesar. I want to see how similar they are to the books, or if they just use the same characters and their traits.

    Please, please tell me that you are going to put me out of my misery and consider picking up The OC and running it on the CW Network. I can not even begin to tell you how devastated I am by the Fox Networks complete and utter disregard for the fans of The OC. The posted their own Save the OC Poll which it last count was upwards of 330,000 votes, they requested that all the fans of the show, show their support and email Fox all of the reasons that we love the OC. What did Fox do with this information, absolutely nothing, because as you are well aware I’m sure 4.5 Million people don’t amount to much, well at least in Fox’s opinion we don’t. They didn’t even have the common decency to post the cancellation of the show on the Fox OC Board; they let all of the fans find out for themselves. I’m sorry that just blatant show of the worst disrespect I’ve ever seen. What was all of the hoop-la about? Can you tell me?

    I’ve got news for the Fox Network; 4.5 million people are not nothing. I never intend to watch another program on the Network the longest day I’m alive. I only started watching their programming (American Idol) while waiting for the OC to come on. It started during the 2nd Season of American Idol; I started watching Idol while waiting for the OC to come on. Eventually I began to give Fox’s other shows a shot and soon after found that I was mostly watching Fox programming in support of the Network that carried by favorite show of all time.

    From the start I was completely and utterly captivated by the OC. My love affair with the OC began in the Summer of 2003 when Fox was promoting the heck out of the show and I thought, hmmmmmm, this looks promising I’m going to have to tune in to find out what this is all about, I needed to find out what happened to that kid from Chino and his attorney. I watched the first episode and was and have been compelled to tune in every week thereafter to find out what happened next. I’m always on the end of my seat watching and I’m pretty sure holding my breath, even when I wasn’t thrilled with the storylines, I had to watch, it’s The OC. And I love The OC to pieces.

    Why do I love The OC, where do I start, the actors, the writing, the storylines, the music, the settings and the attention to detail, the shout outs that call to mind a completely unrelated subject (they make me bark at the TV in hilarity, i.e., last episode, the story on Meerkats that the Cohen family was watching was a shout out to fans in the know who know that Ben in Junebug tried taped a Meerkat documentary for his wife), remain in my opinion unduplicated by any other program out there, the likes of which we will never see again and the very thought of it makes me heartsick. I find very difficult to even write this letter, it is bringing tears to my eyes and lump in my throat. I world without the OC, oh please no. I’m not some psychotic fanatic, life is hard, I have a job that is hell on wheels, and I’m the Vice President of Administration of a Company. I’m completely stressed all the time, I have a life, I travel, socialize, I’m married and a generally a happy stressed out person. But at least when I’m having a bad week I know that for one night during the week I’ll will be transported from my troubles, problems and woes and completely entertained from start to finish and that means a lot to me as I’m sure it does others. It relaxes me, makes me laugh, cry, giggle, groan and snort and I’ll admit bark at the set once in a while. Over the years I have come to sincerely love these characters, the way that they are written and the amazing talent displayed by the actors themselves, they breathe such life into them, that they’re real to all of us fans. I can’t imagine never having them enter my home again after February 22, 2007, that thought gives me a sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach. What to say about all of them, Ryan (Ben McKenzie) the range of emotions this guy is able to convey without uttering a sound, he’s so amazing at the non-verbal stuff, and that’s not an easy Josh set for him, and he nails every time. And he’s just so great at deadpan, cracks me up. He’s brought such warm and honesty to this tough kid from Chino with a heart of gold, that little sideways look/glare and that smile when it lights up his face makes everyone feel good. Then there’s Sandy (Peter Gallagher) what I can say, I love him, doesn’t everyone wish they knew Sandy Cohen, boy he could sell any used car in a lot, he’s present in the scene, he’s just so Sandy. Julie (Melinda Clark) what can’t this woman do, comedy, drama, she’s just delicious. And Adam Brody (Seth), he and Rachel Bilson (Summer), just magical together on scene, and nothing beats Seth/Ryan time, nothing. Kirsten (Kelly Rowan) she brings such needed warm to every scene she’s in, she’s golden. The new characters, Taylor (Autumn Reeser) hilarity at it’s finest and her chemistry with Ryan is undeniable. It must be said that I didn’t like Kaitlyn (Willa Holland) in Season 3, but this season, loving her, underneath what we thought was a mean streak is actually a soft heart, she’s Julie’s daughter completely!

    This said, I now have to tell you about the Overseas Fans of the show, they must be included they’re such good friends of mine and have been for a very long time. They have no say in our rating system here, but they must be mentioned, they’re wonderful people, from Australia, Canada, England, Germany, South Africa…..etc. Warner Brothers needs to recognize that these people are fans too and they’re out there downloading the episodes as soon as they can because they can’t wait to find out what happens next. Actually that’s not good enough for some of my friends and immediately following the show I have to email them a blow by blow description of the nights show, then they download and then watch it again when it’s in their country and then run out to the store or get on line as soon as the DVD is available to order it. JUST LIKE THE FANS HERE DO!!!!

    When I originally started watching the OC I didn’t realize how addicted I would become but around about the 6th episode I started recording it as well as watching, now I actually watch, TIVO and tape the show so there’s no way I don’t have a copy of the episode and then I buy it on DVD when it becomes available. So when the 1st Season ended, I thought I can’t wait till October to get the DVD to see it again, I need to be able to watch this again and again all summer. I quickly went on line to EBay and got a hot copy (before they were pulled), paid for it and watched it and watched it and watched. I then gave the DVD to all of my friends and family to watch, I must’ve gotten at least 20 additional people to watch the show this way, all now as addicted as me by the time Season 2 rolled around. (They just kept passing it around and I still don’t know where that ended up.) This really doesn’t matter because a hot copy isn’t good enough I have to have the official WB copy. After having relayed all of this can you see how we are how much we love this show? Now to point out where Fox went wrong, Season 2 on in November after baseball and well after people had made their viewing decisions for the season. Big mistake. Season 3 they realized they were wrong so they started it before baseball and stopped it for it and then moved the night to further muck up the works. Fox then promised fans that if the show didn’t do well they would move it back. They didn’t, can you see the handwriting on the wall here. Fox just plain stopped caring about the show and/or doing anything to support it.

    Well I hope they’re happy with the decision because they’ve lost more than a few fans with their decision to cancel the OC, No OC no Fox for me. I truly believe that the place for the OC is the CW Network. You guys try harder, you know how to support a show, and you show re-runs. Pick up the show, put it on after One Tree Hill or before they are the perfect shows to follow each other. I never watched One Tree Hill or Smallville, but the CW Network knows how to rope in new fans, you guys ran re-runs of those shows on Sunday nights to draw in other viewers and that’s how I got sucked in. There are 57 channels on, on Sunday nights and nothing on. It was perfect and I was hooked. Now I promise you this, that should the CW Network grant me my hearts desire and support my favorite show of all time (just to put it in perspective I’ve never written to a Television Network in my life till I had to fight for the OC) I am prepared to support the CW Network and in any and every way that I can and bring a few million of my friends with me. I already watch Smallville, I don’t watch Supernatural anymore because it’s on at the same time as the OC. Please, please pick up me show, it’s not time for its demise yet, it’s such an excellent show, there’s not a lot of that around.

    Please, please allow me the opportunity to say “Welcome to the CW…….Switch”

    Watch it. I think you've had enough warnings, you don't want to get banned. I'd edit that if I were you.

    If Josh is not involved, it should NOT be picked up. End of story. Everyone has to be involved, otherwise it might as well go out now.

    this is stupid, leave the poor CW people alone, i think they get the idea that we want the show and im starting to think that i dont want to any more. This season is just so good that it would be a shame if it went to the CW and didn't offer any good storylines. If it does move, its not going to be the same OC and i like my OC how it is right now. Josh is very likely not going to be able to give his full time and think what happened when that happened last season.

    I think people want the exact same show without changes on the CW, if not all the actors are back then no and if they can't afford the music and other things then I don't want it there.
    So as long as its the EXACT same great show then we want it on the CW, otherwise we'll have to learn to say goodbye

    it will not be the same great show if it gets picked up on the CW, they dont have the money there.
