Just over 10 years after the debut of The O.C., the show's one-time breakout starMischa Barton is opening up about the struggles she faced from the instant fame.
Certain songs are so closely associated with a specific show and moment in television that it feels like blasphemy when another series dare use it for its own soundtrack. Here are 10 songs that shows need to avoid from here on out:
Come on, Coop!
Following last week's 10-year anniversary of The O.C.'s debut, fans are clamoring for a reunion of the cast. However, Mischa Barton, who starred as Marissa Cooper for three years, isn't so hot on getting the Newport gang back together.
Secrets of The O.C.: Fox wanted Seth Cohen aborted!
"You know — never say never," Barton, 27, told Us Weekly. "But, I think things have to...
"Welcome to the O.C., bitch!"
It's hard to imagine it's been 10 years since The O.C. premiered and changed all our lives for the better. But would it have had the same effect without Seth Cohen? Or without band Death Cab for Cutie, for that matter?
Creator Josh Schwartz, who's now running Fake Empire with Stephanie Savage, talked to TVGuide.com about The O.C.'s success, where it went wrong and the surprising couples we never got to see....
No television show has perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the early 2000s like The O.C. For one hour each week, the world stopped as the Newport drama unfolded before us. Of course, the world didn't actually stop, as my unfinished homework would always attest, but the world was changing...

Any more teasers about the Bones finale? I'm still hoping for a proposal after Monday's visit to the diamond shop! — Bridget
ADAM: While last year's finale cast Brennan under suspicion, this season-ender may have some raising eyebrows about Booth. "There is a connection to Booth's past," executive producer Stephen Nathan says about the case in the finale. "We find out about some of his work at the FBI that we didn't know about. And it appears as if the victims have a close connection to Booth." So is Booth dirty or is this the work of the returning Pelant? Time will tell. As to the to the more bling-y part of your question: "The notion of marriage is again brought up in the finale," Nathan teases. "If you thought the pot was stirred [this week], the pot... overflows and messes up the kitchen floor in the season finale." Sounds like marriage to me!

NATALIE: One unlucky bastard...
Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen
Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) may have taken their relationship to the next level when they slept together on Nashville, but Scunnar fans might want to hold off on celebrating. The new couple's honeymoon period may be short-lived, according to Palladio.
That's not entirely surprising, given the fact that the event that immediately preceded their hookup was Gunnar learning that his brother had been murdered. But when Nashville returns from a month-long hiatus Wednesday (10/9c, ABC), there's another source of complications for Scarlett and Gunnar: trying to balance their new romantic relationship with their professional songwriting partnership. It's a classic story of co-ed songwriting duos, and the pair may be headed for a "Fleetwood Mac sort of thing," Palladio admits.
Lust. Love. Heartbreak. Three things that make for a great country song. And great television. At Saturday's PaleyFest panel for freshman music drama Nashville, moderated by TV Guide Magazine President and Editor-in-Chief Debra Birnbaum, the cast and producers spilled on what's coming up behind the scenes — talk of a tour is in "vague stages" according to star Charles Esten — and on screen...
