With all of us concentrating on the Knight Rider Festival this weekend, I'm sure we would have been forgiven if we managed to somehow miss one of the most newsworthy non-festival related stories that's currently making the rounds.

Whilst this news isn't going to have the global impact that a story regarding the show's renewal or cancellation would, it's heartening to learn that the 2008 continuation is finally beginning to spread its wings, and make inroads into some of the original series' most popular markets, markets that may prove to be an essential element in the show's fight for survival.

For those of you that are interested in reading the full story, feel free to hit the jump.

Lets check up on the NBC blogs, as they posted what is likely to be their final updates for the season.

From Knight Riders:

Tonight was our 17th and final episode of the season, but it was actually shot as our 13th episode. Matt Pyken has already touched upon some of the reasons why episodes get shuffled around in his blog entry from Dec. 31st. Why did this episode in particular get moved? It's simple. After looking at cuts of all the remaining episodes to air, this one most felt like the beginning of something new. And, ideally, that's what you want in a season finale -- a launching point for the following season.

From Billy's Blog - so much to say, so little time:

Okay. Time for the truth serum. I have no idea what to blog about. I mean, I do KNOW what I want to blog about, but there's so much going on, I don't know where to start. I could talk about this cool new drug developed at Balham Labs that can give ordinary people super strength. I could talk about all the comic book movies coming out soon. I could even talk about the beginning of baseball season. Yes, baseball. I follow sports, too, you know. Especially a stat-obsessed sport like baseball. At the beginning of each season, I create a new matrix analyzing the performance of every player who plays in spring training, and then use the data to predict their performance during the regular season. So far I've correctly predicted three Cy Young Award winners, two Rookies of the Year, and one World Series winner. So the question is... what do I blog about today?

and That's all, folks?

There are no real secrets anymore. Sure, most of the work I do is "classified." And the government is always eager to deny the existence of anything we do. And, yeah, my bosses get a lot of use out of those neat black highlighters. And of course my family and friends are frustrated because they can never get a straight answer when they ask what I've been up to or how things are at work.

Thanks to all the people who have posted on their official blogs, they've always been entertaining and insightful. We'll see you for season two!

The lovely Deanna Russo is off to the Persian Gulf this week to as part of the USO tour to help the morale of our troupes overseas. We think it's terrific that she's doing something so noble and wish her all the best.

We look forward to seeing her in less than two weeks at the Knight Rider Festival, another worthy cause benefiting the Children's Miracle Network.

claw-thumb.jpg.jpegTonight is the finale episode of the first season of Knight Rider! The seventeenth episode is entitled "I Love the Knight Life." Unfortunately we haven't seen a video teaser for this episode (hello NBC!), but here is what we do know:

STRONGER THAN IS HUMANLY POSSIBLE--Mike (Justin Bruening) and KITT (voiced by Val Kilmer) are trying to track down a stolen serum that maximizes the recipient's physicality before it gets into the wrong hands. With the help of the lab's research assistant, Billy (Paul Campbell) learns some information about the serum that will help Mike when he takes on the now powerful thief. Meanwhile, Sarah (Deanna Russo) is overwhelmed with her new duties and quickly learns how much work it will take to reinstitute the Foundation for Law and Government.

We will be in the chat room as well as the forum discussing tonight's episode - please join us!

THIS IS THE FINAL EPISODE OF THE SEASON, so be sure to tell everyone you can to watch so that we get a Season 2 - check out our campaign page for more ways to make that happen.
