My daughter has me hooked on this show. Anyone watch the show?

How cool- Kyle and Jessie have no belly buttons.

This weeks show Jessie finds out her real mom is dead- Sarah.

Anyone else like the show?

We were watching it pretty consistently until we got word that it was canceled. I'm not sure we'll be watching the remaining episodes.

:confused: The show was cancelled? When? I mean how many more episodes will there be? I didn't hear this news.
I hope they wrap things up and don't leave it hanging.

I couldn't believe it when I first heard. Kyle XY has such an original and unique storyline. The acting is way above average as well. The series deserves at the very least a proper conclusion which it's not getting to get at this rate! If you ask me Kyle XY has outgrown a frivilous channel like ABC Family and should be taken up by Sci-Fi or CW. Regardless if we can in some way get a season 4, we can get another 10 episodes and a decent conclusion.

If you want to be part of all of us pushing to Save Kyle XY then go to savethetub dot com for the necessary addresses and write letters (emails are going to be put into spam boxes at this stage), post postcards with "Viz Allati" written on them, send packets of Sour Patch Kids (I'm from the UK but I still managed this by buying the sweets through an American website and giving them the President's address, so you should all be able to do it one way or another!), and buy the latest episodes on iTunes - in fact episode 8 reached #8 overall and #3 in Sci-Fi this week for popularity! So we're on the right track people. :D

Buy the boxsets from the ABC Family website and amazon.com etc.

Google the Youtube campaign threads where a short clip of you asking to "Save the Tub!" will be compiled into the thousands of other videos already sent in by fans. Make lots of Kyle XY music videos also, and there are certain people who you can google who wish to have all these videos sent to them so they can burn them to DVDs to send to ABC's president.

Another thing you can do is make your own posters advertising the next episode. This will be especially important next week so that we can try and smash the ratings for the season finale through the roof. If everyone that reads this distributes 40 posters on cars, lampposts, town bulletin boards, townhall boards, shop windows etc then we could bring awareness of the show's existence to 500,000 other people easily if not way more! Believe me when I say every little helps, I've seen it done before. ;)

P.s. Make sure to sign the petitions too (again google these as posting url could get this post deleted) and then quote the number of signatures on the two biggest on any letters you write. Give them as many figures and statistics as you can, it's the best way to communicate with these executives.

Good luck everyone and let's Save the Tub!

Given how precipitously its ratings fell during its second season, and how they've only gotten worse from there, I cannot see either second-tier broadcast networks or second-tier cable networks touching this with a ten-foot pole.

These days, the best hope for conclusion typically stems from moving the story to comic books.

They will consider it if they see how strong the fan base is, it worked for Veronica Mars and Roswell so it can certainly work for Kyle XY which has only fallen into trouble in it's third season, and so is in a much better position compared to the previous two I mentioned that reached trouble in their second seasons. Not only that but Kyle XY's iTunes downloads and ratings have been increasing noticably over the last few episodes which shows the show's potential if it is properly promoted (compared to being promoted amateurly by its fans). Not to mention ABC has done a very poor job of promoting the show, a more experienced network could see the potential in this sci-fi show that ABC has overlooked.

A conclusion as a last resort could easily be made in the form of a movie. If it can work for Firefly which had a much smaller fan base, and ran into trouble pretty much as soon as the first episode aired, then it can work for Kyle XY.

I was so sad when I found out that Kyle Xy was being cancelled. I've been watching it ever since it started. I'm so glad that Kyle and Jessie are finally into each other, I was hoping for it the whole series!

I've never watched Kyle XY before, but I have always heard about it from everyone at work. They have talked about the previous shows so many times that I can almost repeat some of them by now.
