Knight Rider now up on blocks?

Looks like I may have spoken a bit early on Knight Rider. According to SyFy Portal's Michael Hinman:

  • NBC released its mid-season schedule, and while there is a place for "Knight Rider," its episode order has been cut to just 17 episodes, and it appears the network is not apt to make many more, according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello.

I based my comments last week on reports that NBC had given "Knight Rider" a full season order just a month ago and left it in the Wednesday slot while putting Monday night shows on hiatus, replacing them with a reality dancing show. But it would seem now that NBC is far less committed to the remake than previously thought.

One funny turn of events did take place durigh the shake up. Again from SyFy Portal

  • NBC tried something different in "Knight Rider's" time-slot last week by airing a variety show by Rosie O'Donnell but the ratings for that outing were even worse than what "Knight Rider" was generating, and that show survived just one episode.

I so called it that this show was not going to fly. One point for me.

Really.. lol and you know even with the people that it's popular with, the most common item of interest is the shape shifting car. Blatantly playing to the Transformer fan. Lame.....
