Jumping the Lesbian Shark: Network TV
Are you a lover of The O.C.? Then watch out, spoiler ahead.
So I was reading Sarah Warn's new article about the absolute non-existence (literally, there are NONE) of lesbian and bisexual women on the 2006-2007 network television line-up, and, though that sucks a lot, a lot a lot, I found myself most interested in this:
Fox's The O.C. will return next season sans Marisa (Mischa Barton).
That's right. The O.C. without Marisa. I've died and gone to heaven, friends. What if they replaced her with Anna (Samaire Armstrong)? Yes, it means there is one less bisexual woman on television, which would normally rile me, but ... it's worth it never to hear her voice again.
