Fox Says “See Ya” To The OC

That’s right, no more Bait Shop, no more Seth and Summer, and no more misguided covers soundtracks. Via Reuters:

Fox has pulled the plug on “The O.C,” which collapsed in the ratings this season.

During its four seasons on the air, “The O.C.” also generated buzz around the indie music featured in its episodes and spawned six soundtracks.

“This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close,” said creator/executive producer Josh Schwartz. “Thanks to the hard work of our cast, crew and writers, we have enjoyed our best season yet, and what better time to go out than creatively on top.”

Although Alec Baldwin made that a difficult claim to verify some weeks, the show was definitely showing signs of recovery post-Oliver. But the real shame is that they never got around to shooting the much-hyped Kim Jong-Il cameo episode.

Bummer. As much as the music directors tried to stay a step ahead of indie tastes — sometimes successfully — we all had those moments were we cursed ‘em for co-opting a little gem, soon to send every MySpacer rushing to iTunes and Ticketweb. Which song’s appearance most upset your inner snob? Let Wiki be your guide.
