Re: Knight Rider Rated In Worst Tv Shows Of The Decade

If they hadn't wasted so much money on the giant sound stage or the excessive cast members -- they would have had a lot more money for car chases and TOS style stunts. Instead -- we got a ton of green screening.... and actors staring at computers for the whole time-episodes. So yeah -- KR08 was prob...

Re: Somebody needs a Knight 4000 Coyote X Car

Yes -- a jump vehicle is a specially built car for small jumps. The original Knight Rider series used a dune buggy with a fiberglass Trans Am shell over it -- it was the stunt car that had the flat panel underneath that could be seen during jumps. Hardcastle and McCormick had a similar dune buggy th...

Re: NBC absolutely sucks.....

That's not entirely true. Medium was pulling in those kind of ratings (1 million or 2 more than Knight Rider) -- and they still cancelled it. CBS noticed what a boneheaded decision that was -- and bought the show the very next day. My Name Is Earl also averaged those type of ratings -- plus, critica...

Re: NBC VIPER , NBC KNIGHT RIDER

Viper got picked up in syndication because it OWNED in Europe (especially in Germany).

I bet the new KR does well in Germany, too.

This was going to be a stunt car that was to be built for Knight Rider 2000. Unfortunately, the car builders had so much trouble with their other cars -- this one never got completed. This particular car was intended for small jumps and drifting. The beauty car was behind schedule -- so they concent...

Kings....

Has already been canceled.

Not a shock. It scored dismal ratings and costs way too much per episode.
Knight Rider is cheaper to produce and got better ratings.

Re: Why was TKR disliked so much?

I don't think the budget was the problem. I think its just that they tried to have too many cars/vehicles in the show -- which spread the budget too thin. I mean they had 4 to 6 main cars depending on how you count: 1)Mustang 2)Expedition 3)F-150 4)2 Motorcycles 5)The Combo car Plus, they switched t...

Re: Get behind Knight Rider Festival!-makes sense!!

With all do respect. Your festival ain't going to factor into NBC's decision to renew the current show in any way, shape or form. It just sounds like a ploy to sell more tickets to your festival. The real way to have your voice heard or save the show.... Is to write a letter to NBC . A stamped lette...

The Smallville analogy doesn't work for KR. Smallville was warmly accepted by Superman fans. KR 2008 was almost universally bashed at introduction by most KR fans. The reception was so harsh for KR 2008 -- Glen will never get the money to finance his project. If the economy was better, he'd might ha...
