    It was a great show, it didn't try to have a story, it was just there to be funny.

    I guess the actors just got to old for the parts.

    Like most shows it had run its course and the ratings were sliding.  When that happens the axe falls.

    The only reason the show was on was because the kids were adorable but once the hit puberty they became unbarable to look at, especially that freak Frankie Munez who looks like a troll that got his face smashed in.

    It had been on for 7 years, ratings were fading, cast were getting old and the general quality of the show was sliding.

    It had been around for awhile, and it may have been getting a little old. So it was time for it to go. But I still like(d) it and I watch the reruns sometimes.

    You know how a show gets when it gets to like its fifth season and beyond! Thank goodness indeed for re-runs!

    The producer said they ended it because they didn't want to deal with Malcolm going off to college; this was his last year in high school. Reese, of course, is never going to college -- he became a janitor at the high school.
