The TVGuide 2008 Sci-Fi Preview Issue is out, and it has something to say about Knight Rider:

KNIGHT RIDER (Returns Wednesday, 12/31, 8/7c, NBC) The full-season pickup of this middling performer - thanks in part to solid male viewership and a Ford partnership that includes loads of ads and cars - means we get one more reboot of the reimagined '80s series. The January 7 episode begins the three-part exit of actors Yancey Arias, Bruce Davison, and Sydney Tamiia Poitier (one character gets a heart-wrenching death scene), which clears the road for the streamlined January 28 relaunch. After the show's government consipiracy is revealed, "there will be more closed-ended episodes," says executive producer Gary Scott Thompson. Anything else to sweeten that car deal, Gary? "We have Richard Roundtree [guest starring on January 14] and then Tiki Barber [on February 4]." Sold. ---Danny Spiegel
