I posted this in the season 2 thread but I thought a thread might serve better to let fans know the bad news...

Damn it, that was one of my favorite shows! I can't imagine any other original programming on that show being much better.

I'm sorry to say I didn't know it was still on. I watched the first season when it aired in hd on abc and that was it. They should have aired the rest on abc too after being on Family.

The current season's storyline has been veering out of control, so I am not surpirsed.

They started it with season 2 but stopped after a couple episodes due to low ratings. Of course, it airs in HD on ABC Family-HD, if you get that.

I haven't even watched the last episode, but did they know they were going to be canceled before filming of the season wrapped up?

That was a very disappointing ending. Like most people, I wanted some resolution. Here is a link to the ABC Family site where we find out what would have happened if the series would have continued. I just wish it was shown on the TV show. I advise not going to the link until you have seen the last episode.

I'm still in utter disbeliefe that they dropped this show and kept, well, whatever they've got left.

Sadly, that appears to be the only closure that we are going to get from this series.

As Daffy Duck used to say, "What a way to run a railroad." ABC Family should be ashamed for cancelling a popular show due to a drop in ratings (after putting the series on a 12 month or so hiatus), then building up the finale as something it wasn't, and allowing it to end with a cliffhanger. At least with "Stargate: SG-1" and "Stargate: Atlantis" the fans were assured, before the finales aired, that one or two direct-to-video movies would resolve any lingering story threads.

To this day I still rank the cancellation of that show as one of my top five worst.


That show had so much promise and one of the most intriguing lead characters on TV at that time and they gave it the boot in favor of Secret Life of an American Teenager, the most ridiculous show for young adults on the air.

Sometimes false promise is the cruelest kind.   There is no chance of a SG:A direct to DVD movie now.

The shittiest TV cancellations: 1) Kyle XY - Never saw it, but I have to respect the thread 2) Terriers - The best show on TV evar, but only 600K watched. At least it got a full season with a completed arc 3) The Unusuals - A great cop show that didn't feel like just another cop show. Terrific cast--we got to see Jeremy Renner before he took off--and quirky characters. Storylines did not get to play out. 4) Lights Out - Slot in the Terriers comments verbatim 5) Journeyman - Fun show that was just hitting its stride when it got pulled 6) John Doe - Just including this for my man, todd s. I did like it, though

I keep thinking of these as some of the worst I remember: Firefly, Sports Night, Carnivale...

I was a big fan of Kyle XY but by the last season it was going downhill fast. Too much teen angst and not enough intrigue and use of abilities. Both Journeyman and Joe Doe were still fresh and full of possibilities when they were canceled.
