it's like voting for president. if you don't vote, you lose your right to complain about the president. if you do nothing to help the show right now, and it doesn't come back, don't complain about it. you didn't do anything to help.

Just out of curiosity, how many tv shows have been saved from "elimination" through signed petitions in the past?

I have to agree, your not showing curiosity, your looking for more 'ammo' to fire back at the guys that are trying to stay positive.
Ok so I'll admit, I'm not that fussed either way if the show is renewed or not, but there are lot of people here that are and that should be respected. They don't need to be told to 'get real' or be accused of acting like they belong in High School or anything similar.
All points of view should be valued but its important to remember to deliver them without ridiculing others.

On the subject of petitions, wasn't there someone from here that organized a pretty big petition that was sent to NBC with a well presented letter?

Jericho came back. Invisible Man was released on DVD b/c of the support over the years. It doesn't work often but technically, signed petitions can lead to a positive result. I just think its too late for anything to work for saving this version of KR. One need only look at Bionic Woman to see what I mean. Its the dreaded girl who doesn't return your calls scenario. Is she interested? Is she not? Maybe the electrical circuit in her phone died b/c of a thunderstorm and she's been desperately trying to call you back but can't. You can drive yourself crazy thinking up any number of "explanations" but the simplest one is the one that's probably true. Dude, if she was interested she would call you. NBC hasn't let out a peep about KR, not even saying a decision hasn't been made yet. They're completely ignoring it.

But that said, they could quite easily be keeping quiet for a good reason. I'll openly admit I'm new to the whole US TV show renewal process, but surely they wouldn't come out saying 'We are keeping quiet whilst we monitor the success of the show abroad'. By that token keeping quiet may well be for that reason and not because they are ignoring it.

Some might argue that common sense prevails, but hello people, these are TV execs were talking about, since when do they utilize common sense? :-P

Thanks Marcus! That's all I wanted to hear.

KITT and chrisjones - I was not being ironic or disrespectful in any way by that question. Just because I don't believe in petitions doesn't mean I'm being negative.

Hello There Everyone, :D

Since my last two posts here I have checked several different web sites and none can confirm Knight Rider's supposed cancellation. TV.com has the show in limbo but, not cancelled. That still has to be determined. The problem I have with this web site: "http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/a150760/ ... eason.html" is that they have Friday Night Smackdown still listed as a CW show when in fact it has aired on My Network TV since September 2008 so, if they can goof there then they can goof on Knight Rider's supposed cancellation back in December. Funny on how NBC has not comfirmed that. Yet, it bothers me that you all want this show cancelled so bad you will find any obscure website and go with their information insead of checking this site for the accurate truth, NBC since they are the source, and USA Today Newspaper and Website. I am tired of this constant cacellation talk since March. We will know one way or the other come May 19th., 2009 so, let us chill on this for now. Thanks and take care... :good:

Hello There Everyone, :D

I am not sure what else can be said about Knight Rider for now and this constant talk of the show's possible cancellation since March has been done so, I am not sure what more can be said. If it is cancelled we have discussed the various reasons why and if it is renewed which I hope it is then we can discuss that too. So, that is why I brought up Star Trek talk since we will know nothing about Knight Rider's fate until May, 19th., 2009. What more can be said.

Well, take care and have a pleasant day, :good:

Hi Michael,

I’ve moved your post regarding the Star Trek movie into the Lounge, and used it to create a new thread dedicated to the film, since this thread is about the news, or lack thereof thus far, of Knight Rider’s future. :good:

Matt
Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?

Autoblog thinks KR is canceled too. I'm gonna laugh at Alex Nunez on that site if the show comes back. That guy is such a loser dickhead that he went out of his way to crap on the show.

Alot of the comment posters are jerkoffs too in general. When the site posts muscle car related stuff the word "mullet" almost always gets thrown around. I have yet to see anyone driving a muscle car actually sport a mullet.

So...Let me start by saying I have had the entire KR08 Series on my Tivo for about 6 months now and hadn't gotten around to watching. Over the last weekend and now this week, the wife and I went on a KR binge and watched the movie again, the all the episodes one by one for the last 6 days.

I can only say that while there were some bumps in the road with this series, it definitely makes the cut for one of the good shows that should stay on. There are some very good merits to this show and they were heading the the right direction. Don't let this one slip away NBC!

On another note Southland and Parks & Recreation are still having their ratings go down down down even with very weak competition.... Yet NBC was in a hurry to renew them. At this rate Southland will be doing worse than KR in demos and total viewers if it doesn't stabilize.

RIP Knight Rider

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/ne ... 9235.story

On Monday, Silverman said "Life," starring Damian Lewis, has been canceled. Also gone forever are "Lipstick Jungle," "Kath & Kim," "Knight Rider," "Kings," "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Crusoe."

Well at least it's over now. We don't have to lie to ourselves any longer....

Hi DevonStyles

I'm afraid this link is already in the Knight Rider News - NBC Announces Their 2009-2010 Line-up thread. Which is where the Mods have ask to keep all the Cancellation/ Non-Cancellation stuff.

If NBC isn't going to continue with KR, then at least they should give it a chance by selling the rights to another party who's willing to continue things... There's possibilities enough out there!
