KNIGHT RIDER GETS A FULL SEASON!!!!!

Post by Sue » Tue Oct 21, 2008 12:37 am

It's too good to believe, but look what I just found on E online!!!!
Well, we certainly never saw this one coming. But that's usually the case with KITT, right?

Very reliable sources tell me that NBC has requested nine more episodes of the new Knight Rider series, meaning that there will be a full first season of the show. Yay? Nay? How are you liking the new Michael Knight and his turbo-charged automotive sidekick? Post your verdict in the comments...

Just saw this over at E-Online as well. Very awesome news. This should give the show all the time it needs to show what it's got. Maybe now we'll get that hasselhoff appearance. :D

Congrats to the cast and crew.

Is it confirmed yet, or does it still stand in the realm of rumors? I mean, if I go and brag to people who don't like the show, I'd rather avoid eating my foot later on.

This is awesome!! :D I also "don't wanna push it" but I also hope for more seasons. Actually I will correct that, I hope for many seasons :D

This has been a great month. NBC orders more scripts for KR, Fox gives Terminator: SCC a full season and now for the best news yet, KR gets a full season!

I can't wait for this to be confirmed.

And I will say in advance, Thank you NBC!!!

Potentially good news though I think I might wait until an official announcement before really getting excited. I've been burned by this sort of thing in the past.
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

Here's a second, make that a third and even more reliable source, The Hollywood Reporter.
NBC has picked up "Knight Rider" for a full season, sources say.

The network has ordered another nine episodes of the Wednesday night action-drama, which is produced by the network's sister division Universal Media Studios.

"Rider" has been modestly rated since its premiere, typically matching CBS' comedy block for second place in its 8 p.m. time slot. The most recent episode was seen by 6.9 million viewers, and earned a 2.3 adults 19-49 rating and 7 share.

The "Rider" pickup marks the first freshman fall NBC series to receive a full season order, joining CBS' "The Mentalist," Fox's "Fringe" and CW's "90210."

Well let's pray that it's real. And if it is indeed real, I'll give four thumb-ups with my hands and my feet :good:

Yeeaah,that's great news. Gives the series enough time to improve. :good:

So does this mean, we have 18 episodes of 22 episodes?

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/cult/a13322 ... order.html says it's 18, but I immediately thought of 22.

Thats 9 originally ordered episodes
plus 4 episodes that were additionally ordered last week
plus 9 more episodes for the whole season.

What I don't know, do the 4 episodes count as part of the new nine ep orders, or are they seperate?

the initial order was 13 episodes. now with the additional order of the back 9 new Knight Rider gets a full season of 22 (13+9) episodes.
whoever came up with 18 episodes is just really really bad at maths!

I heard terminator: SCC is getting cancelled so while it's good news for KR to get a full 1st season, I hope it doesn't go the same way as SCC and get stopped in it's second run.

I was thinking it would has I haven't hardly seen any commercials for KR but 400000 for My own worst enemy. They have the fan base already established and I have friends that have at least seen one episode now and plan on watching more.

Terminator: SCC being cancelled was just a rumor, as with KR08 it's getting a full second season:

Yeah, word was out last Friday TSCC was getting picked up for a full season. I guess with more people/sites saying it, it must be true, hopefully the writing continues to improve as well as the effects and ratings continue to stay steady, hopefully rise. :D

And yeah, My Own Worst Enemy has been advertised like crazy over the last several months and still is, it'll be interesting to see how the ratings are for it later today.
