    ABC Family: 'Kyle XY' out, 'Perfect 10' in

    "The Secret Life of the American Teenager"

    In one fell swoop, ABC Family has set up its new lineup.

    Following the success of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," the cable network on Friday night picked up three new female-oriented series, comedies "Ruby and the Rockits" and "10 Things I Hate About You" and drama "Perfect 10."

    All three received 10-episode orders.

    Additionally, ABC Family renewed college dramedy "Greek" for a third season and black family drama "Lincoln Heights" for a fourth season with 10-episode pickups while canceling sci-fi mystery "Kyle XY" after three seasons.

    Pending is the renewal of ABC Family's smash hit "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," the size of whose order is still being determined.

    Based on the feature of the same name, "10 Things I Hate About You" is a single-camera comedy about the Stratford sisters -- the strong-willed Kat (Lindsey Shaw) and social butterfly Bianca (Meaghan Jette Martin).

    Carter Covington penned the pilot, which was directed by the film's helmer, Gil Junger.

    "Ruby and the Rockits," from ABC Studios, is a multicamera comedy starring Patrick Cassidy as a former teen idol who has chosen to lead a quiet life with his wife and two sons. But when his former Rockits bandmate and brother (David Cassidy) shows up unexpectedly with his newfound teenage daughter (Alexa Vega) in tow, the family's life becomes anything but normal.

    Set in the world of competitive gymnastics, "Perfect 10" follows a group of teen Olympic hopefuls as they train and prepare for their day in the spotlight.

    The hourlong drama was created by Holly Sorensen, who is exec producing.

    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban
