KR delayed by a week for politics?

Post by pheonix_knight » Mon Oct 27, 2008 7:24 pm

I know the thread regarding this has been locked.

My query is not a political one. I was wondering, is it ONLY in the US where the episode is being postponed or does it apply to ALL markets that currently recieve KR in its first week of airing...??

Canada is getting the delay too I believe since.

Now my question is: Will the episode be available online early like the first one, or will we still have to wait an extra week?

NBC are IDIOTS, politics should never interfere with Knight Rider.

And Heroes.
They're delaying an Heroes episode next week too. So it's not just KR.

Saturday was originally scheduled to be the repeat of Wednesdays episode and TV Guide et al were not quick to remove the Saturday repeat.

Now it will be "A Hard Day's Knight" at 8 followed by "Knight of the Hunter" at 9pm.

I will not be watch Brack Obama message tonight since he brought 30 minutes of air time. McCain would not delay a baseball game or interupt primetime shows for his camping, It is kind of interesting just got a call from Bidden reminding us to watch Bracks thing tonight, but I'm not I'm going to watch a basketball game instead the New Jersery Nets at the Washington Wizards

I'll probably be stuck working on the computer tonight. Or just taking a break from everything. But I don't plan to watch TV. If I do, I might watch one of the older series ones like Just My Bill or something. :-P

Jon Stewart just cracked a joke about Senator Obama's infomercial saying something along the lines of, “Senator Obama's speech forced NBC to cancel last night's showing of Knight Rider...one way to lose the ‘talking car’ vote!

conan obrien made a really funny joke wednesday night, he stated that the obama commercial was playing instead of knight rider, and that obama is not even president yet and he is already doing something positive by taking knight rider off the air for the night. not an exact quote but he said something to that affect. :lol:

Jon Stewart is an #*@hole, Conan on occasion is really funny and I do mean on occasion like 1 out of every 20 episodes but in general he's an #*@hole too. Letterman is also an #*@hole. Leno isn't though, if you watch his garage vidoes on that site you can tell he doesn't give a damn about being mean. Leno is into cars like I am but when he's on the show his pretend political views on the show I totally don't agree with. To me the only cool part about Leno is the car stuff nothing more. The only time Leno is asshole-ish in my opinion is when he's kissing democrats asses when it's the democrats who @&^# up America in the first place.
