Re: Knight Rider News - NBC Announces Their 2009-2010 Line-up

I predicted it would be canceled way back when NBC cut back episodes and reduced the cast. I knew that was the end. Foreign ratings didn't matter, a minor boost in ratings didn't matter, NBC/Ford's relationship didn't matter, etc. etc. etc. People were clinging onto very thin theories that it would ...

Re: Knight Rider number one on Sci-Fi

Interesting. I tend to forget what little it takes to impress the rest of the world. It makes sense now why people are getting orgasmic over 500,000 viewers for KR.

Re: Knight Rider number one on Sci-Fi

I'm not "raining on anyone's parade" I'm just trying to manage expectations. The fat lady has sung, so its not healthy to jump on 500,000 in foreign ratings and use that as the basis to put forth the idea that it will renew KR domestically on NBC. The shows you have put forth went into syn...

Re: Knight Rider number one on Sci-Fi

Heroes is one show, it's ratings are as low as ever in the US but is high in foreign markets. When Friends started in the US it was a season or so before it became a hit, why didn't NBC cancel that? Simple, it was a hit in other countries. Another example is The Simpsons, it's ratings are as low as...

Re: Knight Rider number one on Sci-Fi

And to think people were calling me stupid for saying that UK Sci-Fi channel could save KR series 2!? Ok so its not happened yet, but hey, this is a damn good start wouldn't you agree!? I so hope it happens just so I can rub it in the doubters faces big time hahaha. Where does the idea that foreign...

These trades never reveal their sources. It could be anyone or it could be no one and they are just trying to add some legitimacy to their claims. I have noticed that very rarely do these source claims turn out to be false. So whether the sources are real or fictitious, what these trades claim is us...

Re: Gary Scott Thompson Step Up....

1) I'm here b/c I'm a fan of KR. Always have been since I was a little kid in the 80s. 2) I'm pointing out what I think is wrong with the show and why I don't think it will be renewed. The big thing now after NBC announced the fall line up sans KR, seems to be "NBC is waiting for the foreign ra...

Re: Gary Scott Thompson Step Up....

I'm beginning to think GST doesn't care, and NBC doesn't care much either. Networks only care for shows that have massive amounts of viewers. I'm not all that sure NBC ever cared anyway. It's all about money and ratings to them like every other network. I also doubt GST ever cared as well, he's a p...

Re: Knight Rider News - NBC Announces Their 2009-2010 Line-up

Just out of curiosity, how many tv shows have been saved from "elimination" through signed petitions in the past? Jericho came back. Invisible Man was released on DVD b/c of the support over the years. It doesn't work often but technically, signed petitions can lead to a positive result. ...

i don't understand why everyone is giving up so quickly and easily. it feels like a slap in the face to the people who are working so hard to tell NBC they want another season. A lot of the save the show campaigns at this point are moot. I mean if they help you feel better like you accomplished som...

Lets say KR doesnt get picked up for renewal and the shows ratings go through the roof over here in the UK (crazier things have happened!).

2) You aren't looking at the big picture. These bailouts and democratic government means they will push incredibly hard for Detroit to make smaller, lighter, fuel efficient vehicles. Every source I've read predicts this to happen. The fate of cars like the Mustang, Corvette, are very dubious right ...

Re: If the series is not renewed

Viper is another example. Baywatch and Viper were first run syndications, I thought you meant the typical kind of syndication. I suppose it can't hurt to try but I'm skeptical that NBC would sell the tv rights to KR. I think they recognize the worldwide appeal of KR and the value of its tv rights de...

Re: If the series is not renewed

It can't hurt. But I'm not sure what you seek to accomplish. If its not on NBC's slate its too late for a renewal. A show needs 100 episodes or 4 seasons I think before it can be sold into syndication. When Sci Fi cancelled Invisible Man, people did the same thing. I think the interest over the year...

Re: Think NBC is getting emails, letters 4 other show beside KR

Apparently, it worked for Chuck. But I don't think fan support is the make or break issue. Its the ratings. Fan support can help only if the ratings on the knife's edge. KR wasn't close. "Every year about this time, rabid fans of shows perceived to be on the bubble launch campaigns to convince ...

The logic would dictate that 5 old series were renewed that is to say 5 will be returning which he explicitly states, interestingly I think two of them are very new ones that recently started airing.

Re: Entertainment Weekly predicts KR08 is canceled

Well, he specifically mentions the returning series that NBC picked up and renewed, KR was not there. So by deduction KR wasn't renewed unless NBC has some bizarre practice of picking up some returning series and not others which would equate to cancellation of those series that they don't pick up a...
