It's been a great ride, but the wheels have finally come off the bandwagon for The OC. TMZ is reporting that Fox has officially cancelled the show, with the final episode airing on February 22.

As Tony mentioned a month ago, ratings for the suburban drama have been plummeting from the days of '04 when it was the must-see program on Wednesday nights.

Certainly to many non-Southern Californians, "The OC" was the first exposure to life behind the orange curtain. For us native-Orange Countians, it meant needless inquiries from out-of-town friends asking whether my life was really as cushy as Ryan Atwood or Marissa Cooper. And with MTV's "Laguna Beach" reinforcing the suburban image laid out by "The OC", it seems my childhood was solely comprised of beautiful beaches, hot girls, ridiculous parties, and tricked out rides. Sweet!

Now if the CW would just greenlight that pilot about Little Saigon, then I could get some street cred back. Welcome to the OC bitch! This is how we do it in Orange County!
