Easily the number 1 question in my inbox! as i have said before.
i don't know when and if the NBC promo will be in the UK. It all depends on how well it goes down in the states. If ratings are high and people like it, then a series will be commissioned. But don't expect it to be viewed here anytime soon after that. I would expect it to come here later on in the summer, now as to what channel again I'm not sure. I think we can rule out the BBC in a heart beat. Knight Rider used to be originally on ITV, and a lot of people are expecting them to pick up the tab again for a 2nd time around, yet remember with Sky now in most homes, i wouldn't be surprised if Bravo, or Virgin 1 takes the series up. Not very informative i know.

Just to give you an idea. Bionic woman is only just about to start airing here and its been....what a year or so since it aired in the states???

KR is going to be fought hard for I reckon. I don't expect ITV to get an easy ride (considering the ratings thus far). However, Sky is not known to take a risk and usually waits till season 2 to pounce. I wouldn't be surprised if BBC2 gets it after Heroes did so well for them.

Cheers for the info. I know they are showing repeats of QUANTUM LEAP on the Sci-Fi channel over here so that's another possible channel or there's Demax or some channel that shows AIRWOLF.

I think the quickest way we will see the new KR will be via Sky on one of the movie channels, KR2000 showed on sky movies before any other channel in the uk.
