Knight Rider Origins

While looking for the clip of Glen Larson discussing how he picked the music for the knight rider intro for Whet, I found this clip that discussed another old anecdote of knight rider's origins:

I think I read somewhere he was contractually obligated to provide a certain number of shows for universal and knight rider was supposed to be his last show for them. He only supervises the first 8 episodes of any tv series he created. After that he hands over the reigns to someone else to carry it on. I wonder what he thought of the direction the series went from where he left off to season 2,3,4.
