    The Cleveland show? What the hell...I don't see that lasting. If they were going to do a Family Guy spin-off why not Quigmire?

    I wish they would do a Dale Grible show.

    It's the right time to end the show. 13 seasons is enough. For the most part it was a fantastic run.

    This is good news, people. I love King of the Hill, but all good things must end. You don't want to see a show go to ruin (like the Simpsons) and it becomes unwatchable. And there will always be reruns and DVDs.

    King of the Hill was one of the most consistently funny shows on TV. I'll miss it.

    Yeah, Family Guy is just an awful show. FOX shouldn't have brought it back.

    I completely agree. Granted, KOTH hit some rough spots, but through it all it remained an entertaining albeit underappreciated show, and I would hate to see KOTH get run into the ground like "The Simpsons." May it find continued success in syndication.

    At first I was upset, because (besides South Park) it's the only cartoon that has stayed funny and smart without sacrificing anything like The Simpsons have (though granted they have earned that right). But then I realized it's better it end now rather then later, when it becomes a cliche like The Simpsons.I'll miss it, but I wish they could keep going. 13 years and they're funnier than anything else on sunday night, so I think they have a couple years left before they get stale. Either way, I'll miss it like crazy.

    This is one of the worst decisions FOX has ever made. Family Guy = awful show people will stop watching soon
    American Dad = Awful show nobody watches presently
    The Cleveland Show = Will be awful and nobody will watch it

    KOTH, Simpsons = Good

    Well, I'm definitly going to miss it, KotH typically being my favorite thing to watch on Fox. I'm just glad it lasted this long. As much as I like American Dad it will never compare to KotH. I just hate how once this is over it seems like Simpsons might be the only none Seth McFarlane cartoon on Fox.

    I am so sad that they are cancelling King of the Hill! All of "Animation Domination's" shows are Awesome, and King of the Hill was one of them!

    This SUCKS! First they move The Simpsons to Sunday night only, so now we can't watch fricken reruns, and now they're canceling King of the Hill. It's one of the only shows that are good, have good morals, are LOL, and don't have a lot of profanity (cough family guy cough). It kinda reminded me of Hey Arnold (one of my fave shows) Dang it FOX. R.I.P KotH.

    I think people should remember that this decision was probably not all FOX. I have a feeling that the two co-creators also wanted to end things. Greg Daniels is the Show Runner for The Office as well as it's new spinoff, while Mike Judge is working on another show at the moment. I'm sure if KOTH stayed on the air the input from both of these guys would be limited and the show would just begin to get worse. And also remember that just because it got cancelled doesn't mean we will never see a new episode ever again, they still have a few hold-overs from last season as well as any new episodes made for the 13th season. So enjoy the last remaining episodes instead of worrying about the cancellation!

    As long as they have a nice series finale, and wrap things up i'll be happy.

    This is the first animated series to end it's run on fox (besides Futurama (but that show sucks)) and the second to air on Fox after the Simpsons, then the rest came. It's leaving the air with dignity and good ratings, and real comedy, it's not struggling along for 20 seasons barely surviving, or relying on random jokes and no storylines. Honestly my two favorite shows on Sundays are KOTH and American Dad, i like the Simpsons the least, and Family Guy has been lacking this season.

    If you read the article, it says it's going to end like any other episode, meaning no wrapping things up.
