NBC Picks Up 'Knight Rider'

  • October 21, 2008
NBC is sticking with the modestly rated "Knight Rider" remake. The network said it will order nine additional episodes, meaning the series will run the full season. A "Knight Rider" movie aired to some success in February, giving NBC hope that a resuscitation of the series, which aired from 1982-86, would take off. So far, the first-year show is placing second in its Wednesday 8 p.m. time slot behind Fox's "Bones," with a 2.5 average in the 18-to-49 demo and 7.7 million viewers (the figures include DVR viewing). --David Goetzl
