Knight Rider Gets A Makeover
Itís no secret that I think the new Knight Rider is lame. I canít compare it to the old one, because I never watched it. While the producers of the show would never deem the program lame they do admit that there is room for improvement.
In an article released in the wee hours of this morning, Hollywood Reporter has some blessed news for the women of the world who are forced to watch this drivel, or do dishes. NBC has decided to ďre-toolĒ the show.
In addition to cutting three regular cast members, they are also re-doing the story lines. "It's a reboot," Knight executive producer/showrunner Gary Scott Thompson said. "We're moving away from the terrorist-of-the-week formula and closer to the original, making it a show about a man and his car going out and helping more regular people, everymen."
They claim that itís been in the works for awhile, and has nothing to do with the scathing reviews the show has been getting. Right. The show has been struggling on Wednesdays, and another part of the change is that it will be moving back to Sundays in January.
Either way, I canít wait for something to be different. Maybe they will even give the lead character David Hasselhoffís hair from the old edition.
