CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- Tonight's scheduled encore of FOX's "The O.C." will be the last scheduled for a while according to a network press release.
FOX had previously announced that the broadcast premiere of "Dr. Dolittle 2" would pre-empt next week's (November 27) encore. And now in a revision to its December 4 schedule, a repeat of the special "Funniest Wedding Outtakes" will fill the Thursday, 9:00/8:00c hour that night. The news was announced in an update to FOX's weekly primetime listings which included the note: "Encore episodes of THE O.C. are no longer scheduled to air Thursdays at 9:00pm until further notice."
Meanwhile, FOX has also bumped its planned back-to-back airings of "Wanda at Large" on December 5 in favor of the special "TV's Naughtiest Blunders from Around the World #1." The news means "Wanda" will be off FOX's schedule for the fourth straight week. "Boston Public" however will air as normal that Friday at 9:00/8:00c.
