Knowing YouTube, they'd probably pull it for "Copyright Violations". :roll:

We won't really know the show's fate for a couple more months, maybe more. It is rather premature to call the show canceled. As much as certain people here and other places would love the idea.

I'm a bit gun shy with YouTube at the moment, since I just got reinstated. Did the embed on our site not work?

I just thought you tube would get the message across to the most people at one time.

Did anyone notice that every single vehicle in the pictures was a Ford? lol

Also reading betweeen the lines of the GST interview he says write into nbc and tell them you want knight rider back. Now if it was not cancelled or whatever you want to call it why would we have to ask to have it back? I think they could just be avoiding putting a cancelled tag on the show and after this season KR would just cease to exist.

Well anything is possible so you could very well be right but also.. it could also mean to give KR some more support. Its common knowledge around here and hell even everywhere that KR hasn't been doing that great in terms of rating, with a drop that started at the Obama election.

Hmm...maybe the viewers saw it as a good way to escape from the stresses of the election. But after Obama's informercial aired and the election itself happened, the stress was largely over one way or the other.

Awesome stuff as always Sue! :good:

A huge thank you for getting GST on video to confirm KRs not been cancelled, to hear that eases some of the anxiety!, again thank you.

When Neil said last night that you had a treat instore for us, I just knew youd gone to visit the set and I wasnt wrong.

Love the pic BTW, hope you frame it and give it pride of place on youre wall!

Youre awesome Sue! Thank you! :good:

I think everyone will be clamouring to be Sue's best friend now, hell, I'm SO jealous!

Thanks so much Sue and Jaime! (I have the "Mission: Impossible" theme stuck in my head now...)

i wouldn't get your hopes up too high, its all about the nielsen ratings, if the ratings dont get better than 5 million it will get cancelled, and it doesn't matter what gary scott thompson says, networks generally dont keep shows on the air with that low of a rating. we shall see what happens!!

Three normal KITTs now... Interesting... *Strokes non-existent beard.* I wonder if two of them were regular GTs that were dressed up or also GT500KRs...

I hope you had fun hanging out there. :D

we never got the show here in Australia, just the pilot, I think it had good ratings but I'm not sure on that
I think the show kinda grew on me, I could have done with out the transforming stuff, but kitt and michael were starting to become good friends/partners, that really needs to be the focus of the show, one man, one car, thats what it was all about, not some fancy cave taken from batman, we've seen that, spend money on kitt, re do the dash and get some good stories, thats important, we need to escape for an hour each week.. ..

I believe the stunt car is a regular GT because it's not as loud as the other two. The stunt car sits a bit higher than the other two cars as well! This stunt car also had no globe.
