Fox Moves THE OC
To Wednesdays!!

Published at: Nov. 6, 2006, 1:03 a.m. CST

I am – Hercules!! Fox is moving “The OC” to Wednesday at 9 p.m. this week, following the pummeling “Grey’s Anatomy” gave its season premiere last Thursday. A new “O.C.” will also air in the 9 p.m. Thursday timeslot this week. Hopefully Fox is aware that, effective next week, “Lost” is on hiatus until February. If left on Wednesdays, Seth Cohen, Taylor Townsend and the MiniCoop might get the traction they could never manage in their brutal Thursday slot. Variety’s Josef Adalian, who has seen the first four episodes of “O.C.’s” fourth season, notes a creative resurgence in the show. You can read his appraisal here.

    Do they find a hatch in the O.C.?

    by Det. John Kimble

    Otherwise I'm afraid they're going down.

    man this show is done. I always admired how they could bounce back from bad plotlines in this show, but I dont think they have that bulletproof capability anymore. after they salvaged season 2 with a great ender, they might have been completely out of mojo. and it didnt help that the chick from the sixth sense grew into a fantastically wierd body. at least she's dead now.

    About time

    by theBigE

    Wednesdays was where it started 3 years ago, and they've been jerking it around since. Finally a good move, FOX.

    Will this series end up like "The Law Firm" when it moved to Bravo?

    Viva La O.C!

    by Allister Mighty

    So one of the very few shows to cater to the loves and compulsions of lovelorn geeks everywhere (The AICN demographic) is taking it's last breath, and no one cares? The ebb and flow of nerdy fickleness. Anyhow the show looks like it's in a creative resurgence and I for one, will be there for it's swan song.

    Ahh the O.C. Quite a lovely guilty pleasure.

    I'll give it one last shot.

    by El Fuego

    I'll snag the first episode online, and I'll watch this week. If I'm not re-hooked, we're done.

    Not that I care anymore...

    by DanielKurland

    But is it permanently moving to Wednesday? Or just for this week. The article is ambiguous.

    I read somewhere else that it's just for this one week to test the waters. I believe they'll be airing 4x02 on Wednesday followed by 4x03 on Thursday. They should keep it on Wednesday since Lost is going on haitus anyway...
