On Saturday 14th January 2012, on a UK TV show called the Magicians, where the Hoff appeared as a contestant.
He says at the end of the show, before the samurai dude cuts the water melon on his chest, "no, I am trying to bring back Knight Rider". Now I suspect there is more truth in this off handed comment.
I hope he does bring it back. He and Larson both know what F****D up the 2008 remake. One can only hope they lock the doors before GST starts sniffing about.
