OC Character Will Join Seattle Grace

by at . Comments

Thursday nights are about to get a bit more competitive for Grey's Anatomy -- and the producers of the series that will oppose it are well aware of what they're up against.

OC Character Will Join Seattle GraceLast week, Bill Lawrence, creator of Scrubs, poked fun at the quirky comedy entering the same Thursday time slot as Grey's, saying how he wants to re-name star Zach Braff "McWeenie," or "McCheesy."

Now Josh Schwartz (right), creator of The OC, has done him one better.

According to an interview Schwartz did with the Boston Globe, one of the male characters will leave Orange County -- for a job at Seattle Grace Hospital -- the fictional medical center where Grey's Anatomy is set.

Now that would be fun to watch -- if it weren't on at the same time as Grey's. You know you've become a staple of popular culture when both series going up against you simultaneously poke fun and pay tribute to you.

i just thought you'd like to know that grey's anatomy is on at eight. the oc is on at nine.
im pretty sure that means its NOT at the same time.
just thought you'd be interested in knowing that.
your welcome.

Now that is pretty funny. It's nice of them to give media attention to the competition. I don't understand the logic of putting all of these shows opposite each other. It isn't nice for the viewers who like more than one and don't have TiVo. My favorite will always be Grey's though. No question. Do you think many people will watch Grey's on Friday and one of the other shows on Thursday now that they have that option? Will it hurt their Thursday ratings?

Schwartz is an idiot. OC sucks!
