Get The O.C. Mix 6: Covering Our Tracks at AmazonThe word has come down and FOX has cancelled The O.C. It will at least get a chance for a proper send off, which will be Thursday, February 22nd. Just when many thought the show had made a turn for the better but up against Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, Supernatural and Scrubs not enough people were actually watching the show. As long as Seth was cracking wise I would have probably continued to watch. How about you? What do you think of the cancellation of The O.C.?
