<STRONG>It wasn't all that grandly popular in the United States, was the problem. It was a favorite of some, but it's ratings were never consistently spectacular.
I remember Knight Rider was popular in the 80s here in New Zealand or was it because I loved it so much.
In the US the first season of Knight Rider was put up against Dallas and Dallas was big then. From what the E! Hollywood True Story said it rated number one that year again, and also mention Larry Hagman was the highest paid actor at the time. Knight Rider wasn't that far off in the ratings and did bet Dallas once, I read that somewhere and I think that would have be good. Its like putting a show up against Friends today, but then I would watch whats on the other channel then Friends.
Skav have you ever seen a show that made backmail, corruption, power, money, lies and sleeping around look so good. I have to say I never liked Sue Ellen, but I feel sorry that she was J.R.'s wife twice, but J.R. claimed she was never good in bed. I loved Leann in the last season J.R's Ex Lover. How she took Ewing oil from right under J.R. and she knew how to knock him down and get away with it. Pity I only watched a couple of the episodes she was in, but I have video of Leann and J.R. on my site where she is droping her bombshell on J.R.
The Episode tittle I dream of Jeannie was a joke, it was in the last season. Just like Barbara Eden's surname before marriage was Nelson on Dallas, which was Larry Hagman and Barbara Eden's surname on I dream of Jeannie. Dallas was like the 4th time Hagman and Eden played lovers.
Did you know J.R. Ewing had 89 loves, well Larry Hagman was handsome. I always thought Michael Knight took the cup in that department, but it looks like you don't have to have good hair and a fast car to score.
Talking about far fetched, I thought that whole dream season was, another thing was the fights the Ewing had in the Southfork Swimming Pool that cracked me up. Like the one were J.R. and Sue Ellen got married a second time and after wedding J.R. fell in the swimming pool while having a fight and was still fight with the guy in the pool, I think?
