    I’m going to miss Kyle XY. The only show that I really loved. It just outgrew the teenager network, ABC Family. I wish another network would take this show and run with it. With some advertising and promotion, the show could be a hit again. After all, what new cable show is assured of 1.3 million viewers when it debuts?
