While I'd love for this to be true, there's no interactive part of the SciFi channel here in the UK, no Red Button or additional services, just the channel and its website.

Thing is, around this time the channel released information that they've acquired the rights to the second season of 'Dollshouse' for broadcast in 2010, so maybe this is where the confusion lies.

That would be: --

Don't Stop The Knight (part 1)
Day Turns Into Knight (part 2)

Of course, the "epilogue" to this story is the K.A.R.R. episode -- Knight To King's Pawn.

I'd hardly say the Sky Magazine is "going mad" for the two-parter. They put a small picture of KITT in a couple of places in the mag, one of these being the schedule and the other in a round up of what's happening on various channels, they do this with every new show, regardless the network or the show. They did a 2-page article when it was due to begin, which was good.

Just have to be careful about getting the hopes up of those not able to read the magazine.

someone on the NBC KR boards said they heard this same rumor.

So how have the ratings been in the UK? Seems like we heard a bit for the first two or three weeks and then nothing after they too had a big drop off...

Sci-Fi viewing figures for Knight Rider is about 320,000 per show. Of course it varies. Yes very low but take into account that not every1 has digital tv yet.

But Knight rider is most popular show on the channel coming 1st in top ten everytime

Figures from: www.barb.co.uk

That is actually not low, for Sci Fi Uk those are very respectable numbers. Things like this could open the path to syndication.

But do you think NBC keeps track of the ratings over seas??? do they really care about the show any more??? or they just go to other markets just for the money???? These are very strange decisions for last in ratings network!!!! Image :kitt:

How? There are plenty of series from the Original Night Rider itself to Charmed, Angel, Buffy you name it all running in syndication. Running a show in syndication does not mean anything other than that a show is running in syndication period...

Google searched...

Syndication has been known to spur the popularity of a series that only experienced moderate success during its original network run. The most notable example of this is Star Trek, which ran for three seasons on NBC from 1966 to 1969, but became a worldwide cult phenomenon after it entered off-network syndication, the success of which ultimately led to the Star Trek film series and the made-for-syndication revival Star Trek: The Next Generation and three other series. Another example is The Brady Bunch.

There are some important details that you are missing on all this and the most important one is the fact that KR08 was a spin off or continuation of the the TOS Knight Rider which already has worldwide cult status it is because of that cult status that KR08 sprang out in the first place. It does not mean we are going to get a season 2 at all syndication or not. We might get some other spin off latter on or maybe even a whole reboot as they did with the new Trek film but a second season? No way, not because of syndication anyway...
You want a second season you have to campaign for it, endlessly and tirelessly until someone gets the message, that's all and even then by the time someone listens it might be over a decade latter and they would still have to re-cast reboot the whole thing Trek style anyways...

Because guess who took the whole thing into syndicated production! None other than the Hoff himself. 8) Heck he even produced a short lived Baywatch PI spin off don't recall the name. We do not have anything like that in this case. I wish we did but we do not... :|

Baywatch Nights.

Can I just add that those figures for KR08 on SciFi UK are nothing short of spectacular! Take away the five network channels (BBC One, BBC TWO, ITV1, Channel 4 and Five) and you've got hundreds of digital channels competing against each other. KR's pilot episode got 500,000 and made it the number one show across ALL those channels in the UK! Also, Sci-Fi's #1 show before KR came on was Medium with 150,000.... so KR is doing brilliantly here!! Yes, is GST hadn't mucked it all up it'd be doing a lot better but in a perfect world GST would never have gotten his hands on it in the ifrst place...

Remember when Shapeshifter said, that NBC paid Justin Bruening money for this TV season? Justin Bruening still doesn't have any IMDb listings for any other shows, if he would be in any other show, we would know that and i doubt that NBC payed him for nothing. I think NBC still is considering to reboot the series.

That really doesn't mean anything other than he is currently not working as he has not hired by anyone yet. This might surprise you but actors sometimes go thru months and even years without getting any kind of roles...
