Question: We all know how you feel about One Tree Hill, but can you honestly say it's worse than the mess The O.C. has become?

Answer:

Yes, I honestly can. With a few minor exceptions (that whole Sandy work-based subplot stank), I loved The O.C. last year. And based on the intel I'm receiving about the new post-Marissa era, I think the show will come back in early November as strong as ever quality-wise, at least. Opposite CSI and Grey's, it'll get decimated in the ratings which makes this next thing I'm going to tell you all the more unbelievable. I have it on good authority that The O.C. is planning a cheeky crossover with one of its time-slot rivals during November sweeps. Quick, someone ask me which one!
