FOX Sneaks Early 'O.C.' Episodes Online

Anxious to find out how the denizens of Newport Beach respond to the tragic death of Marissa Cooper?

Starting on Thursday, Oct. 26, FOX will make the fourth season premiere of "The O.C." available on Fox Interactive Media's and the Fox Television Station Group's MyFoxLocal websites in 24 owned-and-operated markets. That's one week ahead of its regularly scheduled network premiere.

The show's second episode will also be available through the same streams in advance of its air-date.

In addition, both episodes will then be put up on Fox on Demand on a free, ad-supported basis, and will be accessible for nearly a week following their television broadcasts.

In addition to the core "O.C." cast (including new regulars Autumn Reeser and Willa Holland), guest stars in those first episodes include Chris Pratt, Steve-O and Tia Carrere.

FOX has been relentlessly promoting the variety of programming available through MySpace and MyFoxLocal, particularly during the network's annual baseball delay. Most of the network's current shows, including "Prison Break," "Vanished" and "Justice" have been showcased in this format.
