'Kyle XY' Says Goodbye


Regardless of the legion of messages that welcomed the news of Kyle XY being canceled, ABC Family seems hell-bent on ending the sci-fi series. More than a month after a representative confirmed the cancellation, Kyle XY will indeed wrap up its third season yesterday at 9pm on ABC Family.


On the series finale called Bringing Down the House, Kyle (Matt Dallas) gets Cassidy to open up about Latnok's plans for the future of Adam Baylin's experiment. Meanwhile, Kyle learns that the secret society is going ahead with the mass production of more super children like Jessi and himself, with hundreds of pods are ready to grow more babies. Kyle and Jessie are hell-bent on stopping it, enlisting the help of the Trager family, Declan, and Amanda. Will they be able to find the secret test facility in time? Tune in to find out.


ABC Family has cited the show's less-than-stellar ratings in the cancellation. Kyle XY reeled in an average of 1.5 million viewers this season, down by more than 1 mil from its 2.6 million average on the first and second run. However, prior to the debut of the network's highly controversial series The Secret Life of The American Teenager, Kyle XY was ABC Family's crown jewel, its highest rated original series for two years, from June 2006 to July 2008. Secret Life averages 2.8 million viewers.


Valiant efforts from fans, such as forming petition lists and flooding the ABC Family feedback form, proved futile thus far as there seems to be no hope for ABC Family to change its mind.

Definitely ruins eastwick for me. Kyle as a boytoy? Depressing. Especially seeing as how he'll get dumped for the Evil dude, If my understanding of the original story is right. I'd be much more interested in seeing Kyle pwn them all with his mind.

Secret Life is a terrible show.. I don't know why I still watch it LOL Take a show that is completely ridiculous (at moments I like it, but I'll watch most any series really) that people play drinking games (not me) on how many times a certain word is uttered to a super cute and believable show that somehow made every character have dimension and be lovable. bahh
It's really sad that they cancel a good show before they come to any sort of satisfactory ending (after making viewers wait around for over a year I think? for a third season) After that long, no wonder why the numbers went down.

They should bring back this show. It has huge potential, the writing is very well done with awesome plot twists and in-depth obstacles. I hope this show will either be brought back by ABC or picked up by a different network. Basically, there has to be a network out there willing to make a lot of money.

I will be waiting for this show to be revived. The way I see it is like this: It will take equally long to find a new show that comes close to being as epic as Kyle XY as it would take for this show to be revived. I hope they take the easy route and simply revive the show. I'm willing to bet that the ratings will be higher than expected.

Anyways, Kyle XY, you will be missed.
