Knight Rider back on German TV?

Postby Michael Pajaro » Tue Nov 22, 2005 5:28 pm

We had recent news that Universal was launching a new cable channel in the U.S. called "Sleuth" which would be airing Knight Rider. But now I just read in Variety that NBC-Universal launched a channel in Germany back in September which is also showing Knight Rider:

"...In fact, "Quincy" is so popular it's also in the starting lineup of NBC Universal's new German free-to-air TV channel Das Vierte (The Fourth), which launched Sept. 29. Das Vierte will also air other oldies such as "Ironside" and "Knight Rider" as well as "Magnum P.I." and "Simon & Simon."... "There's still great interest in these classic series," adds Wolfram Winter, managing director of NBC Universal Global Networks Deutschland. "

Has anyone in Germany seen KR on Das Vierte yet?

"Das Vierte" was launched on sept 29. They already aired KR Season 1 and we are now in the middle of Season 2. Apparently, they'll repeat season 1 then. no news yet when they are going to air season 3 or 4.
I think i heard that KR is the show with the best rating on "Das vierte" which is really cool.

That's because Hasselhoff is huge over there.

Even if D. Hasselhoff's huge in Germany, he's slowly catching on here in the U.S., especially with his fans here.
D. Hasselhoff is a pretty huge celeb for me nonetheless, since I check out a couple (or more) of DH-related websites and gotten a couple of CDs of his online this past year.
Here's hoping he'll have a good world tour!

Yes dasVierte aires Knight Rider here 2 Times a day.But they only showed season 1 and 2.They started over with the Pilot last week or so.
Its because the pay-tv channel "Premiere" aires KR already for the 2nd or 3rd time with season 1-4 on SciFi.

BTW : i got the best-of kr-dvd and i like the english original dubs better than the german...
