It would be nice if you knew what a communist was before you started calling an organization such.

As you can see, sci-fi is privately owned by a corporation, and not by the government, so therefore, they are not communists. They do quite a lot for the people, since they gave us two and a half runs of the show, when they didn't have to put it on at all. They are taking away Knight Rider because they oversaturated the market for the time being, so they take it off, and potentially bring it back, just like they have with the other programming they put on. (including some of the programming that they are replacing a lot of their present programming with.
So if we follow the rather childish cry to boycott, and don't keep up some form of interest, then they will never bring KR back, and well, 2000 people....ain't nothing compared to the millions that they get through such programming as X-Files, Hercules, etc.
So if you choose to cut your own appendages off to spite yourself, go right ahead, but I think it would be in most people's best interests to potentially go over to the sci-fi forum and encourage them to bring it back, rather than throw a poo fit because they are taking it away for what is potentially a less saturated audience base.
Oh, but I guess we are fools, it would be more pertinent to throw a good old fashioned temper tantrum, right?
