I chose the show One Tree Hill, which was created by Mark Schwahn. It premiered on September 23, 2003. The main characters are Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray), Nathan Scott (James Lafferty), Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton), Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush), and Haley James (Bethany Joy Lenz). This show is about two half-brothers that compete for a position on their school basketball team and their relationship, the girls in their lives, and the drama that comes from it all.
This show takes place in a fictional town of Tree Hill, a small but not- so-quiet town in Carolina in modern times. Some of the scenes take place in the school, the characters houses, or outside.
Lucas was born when his parents were still in high school and his dad didnt want to claim Lucas as his. He left Lucas and his mom, married Nathans mom, and they had Nathan. His dads brother, Keith, acted as a father figure for Lucas. He was added to the basketball team after most of the other players were suspended for drinking and driving. His relationship with Nathan isnt very well at first but eventually they become closer and more like brothers. After Lucas finds out he has inherited a heart disease from his dad, he has to quit the basketball team. He starts a relationship with Brooke Davis but still has feelings for Peyton.
Nathans girlfriend is Peyton Sawyer until she realizes hes in the relationship for the benefits, not love. Lucas starts to like her, which further strains their relationship as brothers. After Lucas joins the basketball team, Nathan feels that people will be nice to him and he doesnt want that. He used Lucas best friend Haley James to make him mad but ended up falling in love with her. Nathans relationship with Lucas gets better and they become more like brothers.
Peyton is a cheerleader at Tree Hill High and Nathans on-and-off girlfriend. She starts to have feelings for Lucas but keeps them to herself because of her best friend Brooke, who also likes Lucas. Peyton defies the stereotype of a cheerleader because she likes music and drawing. She finds out the people she thought were her birth parents are actually her adoptive parents. After Lucas confesses his love for Peyton, she leaves him. When she comes back, she finds out that hes started a relationship with Brooke. Peytons feelings for Lucas dont fade and in the end theyre together.
The teen issues this show portrays are family problems, relationships, and friendships. I think the show sends a positive message to its viewers because it lets them know that whatever they go through, they arent the only ones.
Season one; 3.5 million Season two; 4.3 million Season three; 2.8 million Season four; 2.9 million Season five Tuesdays (January 8 – March 18); 3.3 million Mondays (April 14 – May 19); 2.7 million Season six; 2.8 million Season seven; 2.3 million Season eight; 1.8 million Season nine (final season); 1.855 million I think this show is successful because its relatable and everything that happens is easy to be interested in.
One Tree Hill had nine seasons, starting in September 2003 and ended in April 2012. In total, the show had a viewer rate of 28.26 million. Season one of Glee ran from September 2009 to June 2010. The show is only in its fourth season. So far, it has a total viewer rate of 28.59 million. I think Glee is more popular, despite One Tree Hill having been on the air for nine years, because of the singing and the characters. Its been advertised a lot as well. One Tree Hill is shown through the main characters four years of high school, then four years later. Glee is shown in high school years because its the schools glee club. I like One Tree Hill more because its interesting and more dramatic.
