Knight Rider information

Rockford FilesWell, if you are one of those people who can’t stand remakes of classic TV shows, this story should make you happy. The proposed remake of The Rockford Files is dead — at least for the moment.

You may recall that a pilot script was written by House’s David Shore and was filmed for NBC last year starring Dermot Mulroney with Alan Tudyk, Beau Bridges, Alex Fernandez, and Melissa Sagemiller in supporting roles. The network wasn’t thrilled with the finished product and opted not to greenlight it to series. (Perhaps they still feeling singed by the failed attempts to resurrect Bionic Woman and Knight Rider?) NBC entertainment president Angela Bromstad maintained however that they wanted to give the project another try.

Knight Rider: NBC Reduces Episode Order, Essentially Cancelled?

December 3, 2008
Though NBC kept touting that the Justin Bruening revival of Knight Rider was a success, the ratings have told a different story. Then, many were shocked when the network ordered nine more episodes. Now, to little surprise, NBC is pulling the plug. Knight Rider debuted on September 24th, as a follow-up to the TV movie that aired last February. Taking place 25 years after the original exploits of Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) and his high-tech, four-wheeled partner, KITT (voiced by William Daniels). Mike Traceur (Bruening) is the son of Knight and the driver of the newest KITT (voiced by Val Kilmer). The car was built by Charles Graiman (Bruce Davison), the father of Mike's former girlfriend, Sarah (Deanna Russo). The rest of the cast includes Paul Campbell, Yancey Arias, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, and Smith Cho. A few revivals of Rider have been attempted over the years but none have been a success. The newest version is, unfortunately, no exception. The premiere episode debuted to just 7.35 million viewers and a 2.5/7 rating/share in the 18-49 demographic. The audience for Rider's second episode grew to 7.77 million while the demo remained essentially flat at 2.4/7. The following three episodes averaged about 7.2 million but the demo began slowly dropping with each new installment.
