The ABC Family Network has opted to continue with their surprise hit “Kyle XY.”
The show centers around a teen who has no memory of his origins and lacks a belly button, which only adds to his mysterious beginnings. The story also takes up his interpersonal relationship with the different members of a family that has taken him in as one of their own.
In a unique move the regular ABC network has also been running “Kyle XY” on Fridays at 9PM ET/PT and has a deal with iTunes, the online downloading giant, which provides all existing episodes, including the pilot, for download at that site.
The ABC Family Network premiered “Kyle XY” on June 26 to 2.6 million viewers, the biggest audience for an original series in the network’s history, and the show has since averaged 2 million overall viewers on the cable network. The season finale runs Aug. 28 on ABC Family and Sept. 1 on ABC.
