Kyle XY Cancellation

As much as I hate to admit it, ABC has good reasons to cancel this show. Although it may be heart-warming and such, the plot complexity has been deteriorating exponentially and is the cause of decreasing amounts of viewers. Honestly, those of you loyal to the show, do you enjoy it as much as you did before back in Season 1-2 where the plot harbored endless twists and turns?

I can see why you say that because the essence of the plot of season 3 has changed slightly from season 2 in that there is less discovery of powers and more focus on the individual characters. However what you need to remember is that season 2 had 23 episodes so both sides of the show (teen drama and sci-fi) could be focused on to equal extents, but because season 3 has only 10 episodes the writers were more restricted and I feel they took season 3 as an oppurtunity to develop the characters and set up relationships in preparation to head deeper into the sci-fi element in a fourth season.
Though of course it has been announced there will not be a season 4 which is a real shame because I think it would of been more sci-fi based and even more intensely exciting than season 2 because character development and relationships would be at even higher levels. But hey! The fight is not over yet, if all fails then a huge sales rank for the season 3 boxset could still change ABC Family's minds, it worked for Family Guy after all, and I can't believe anyone would ever try to cancel that show, never mind Kyle X.

i think than kyle xy is one of that series that can't survive in the long way...How many evil organizations can a guy destroy? But at least if you decide to cancel a beloved serie give a proper ending to the story. I'm looking forward to see what happens in the season's finale but it seems to me that at this point one episode is not enough for a satisfactorily ending.

These TV show organizations do some of the most irritating things. I only watch a few of the currently airing shows across the networks, and of those 2 are being canceled.
To answer your question, I liked Season 1 the most, and this one after that. I didn't really like Season 2 that much. When I watched it it seemed like they lost a lot of the appeal of the first, and the writing quality seemed poorer. While there were some things in this season that I didn't care for, I liked it far better than S2. The plot has really seemed to be going somewhere. I'm severely bummed that they had to cancel it just as it was getting good. Well, good-er.
I guess I can't argue with these all-powerful ratings everyone's always talking about, but it's sad they have to cancel a good show despite what the cold numbers have to say.

These ratings are crazy though! When you actually look at what the measure it is laughable that decisions are actually made based on them. They don't take into account DVRs or TiVo, they don't take into account sites like Hulu, hell they dont even accurately rate good old fashion television. When you look at teh percentages of what is measured its crazy! you would think that in this day and age we would be able to track things much more accurately. I think if the numbers were accurate this show would never have been in trouble
