Deborah Solomon’s Missing Questions for Josh Schwartz

FBLA stumbled upon one of those missing tapes with the questions that NYT interviewer/fabulist Deborah Solomon really asked Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz:

Q: So is Ben Silverman the best hung mogul in Hollywood?

A: No, but he is supersmart.

Q: What’s your sex life like?

A: I go on the Internet and look for mean things that have been written about the shows that I work on.

Q: Has working in Hollywood made you more interested in coprophilia?

A: There’s that, too. My girlfriend is definitely a big proponent of that. I’m more into self-flagellation.

Q: Do you been play with yourself in the writer’s room?

A: Not really. I’m too afraid of getting caught.

Q: How do you ensure that your inane shows will always have an audience–do you pay people to watch?

A: I do. I give a lot back to U.S.C.

(Edward Champion has quite the collection of Solomon’s foibles.)

Josh Schwartz to Ausiello: O.C. on the CW? Never Say Never

Josh Schwartz is teasing his loyal fans by hinting that his late, and curiously unlamented The O.C. might move to the CW. The faithful at Save the OC are leaking an interview done by Michael Ausiello:

Ausiello: So there’s no chance of it moving to another network? Like, say, the CW?

Schwartz: I don’t want to ever say never, because at a certain point… At this moment? No. Secretly, I would love a Julie-Kaitlin anti-Gilmore Girls show.

TV Guide doesn’t have it up yet, and FBLA thinks the fans are kidding themselves. We think he can move it to Spike.

The show that was arguably already dead — its producer Josh Schwartz having killed off its burgeoning starlet, Mischa Barton, last season — has met its sandy end.

Via B&C:

Fox has bid farewell to Warner Bros. TV’s The O.C., cancelling the four-season-old series that has been struggling in the ratings this season. The sun will set for the last time on the once-hot series on Thursday, Feb. 22, in its 9-10 p.m. time slot. All original episodes will air from this Thursday through the last episode. “This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close,” says Josh Schwartz, creator and executive producer of The O.C.
