Well, this morning, NBC made it official: Wednesday nights this Fall we'll all be able to say "Hello, Mike", as Knight Rider returns to the weekly schedule. The Peacock network unveiled its Fall lineup today and, despite rumors that it would appear on Friday nights, the new Knight Rider is relegated to the Hump night at 8-9PM EST. Encore showings will also run each week on Saturday night from 9-10PM EST. We're a bit surprised, or perhaps disappointed, that the show will be kicking the night off at 8 o'clock, as it suggests adult themes will not be present. Not that we're looking for lesbian overtures in every episode as was brazenly and inexplicably included in the pilot two-hour movie, but knowing that the new KR is sanitized for my nephew's protection is just one more nail in this show's coffin.

Nevertheless, your friendly neighborhood Autoblog plans to watch every episode until the show gets cancelled. Alex Nunez will liveblog each episode every Wednesday night, just like he did the two-hour movie. You're all invited to follow along as Alex poignantly picks apart each episode. Bring a box of tissues, though. You'll need them to dab the blood away from your eyes.

      As someone who works in film, well i don't really have anything to say...I just wanted to point out that I work in film and....oh and this show sucks!

      Great. Another reason to add NBC to my list of skipped channels on the cable box.

      My friend and I came across the first episode on TV--it was so bad. It wasn't even cheesy bad.

      I predict at most a season out of this clunker.

      This show is so god-awful I can't believe it's going to come back! NBC makes some of the most ass-backward show selections...

      As someone who works in TV, I'd like to point out that shows get "RELEGATED to FRIDAYS" shows don't get relegated to Wednesdays. Wednesday night is way more PRIME than Friday, when people largely go out after a long week!

      They obviously don't listen to viewer feedback. People just tuned in because of curiosity. oh well.. if the show has more KITT maybe it will be watchable

        That's the sad thing about ratings... so many people turned it on to watch the flames... but that just made it look like people actually liked it.

        Instead of people watching to see how awful it really, truly was; which is what actually happened.

        I'm sure I'll watch a couple of the real episodes too.. just like a car wreck, I can't turn away.

        Um... Need I mention that the same people that watch TV re-elected George W Bush? Maybe we should start teaching "Intelligence" in our school! Then we wouldn't have crap TV show ratings or bad choices for our votes!

        Ya Know?

      I liked the pilot and didnt see anything wrong with it. Ive only see reruns of the original show, when it was on during the afternoon and there wasnt anything else to watch. I think most of you dont like the new one because people that grew up with the ogrinal of anything never like the remake. Id gladly watch this over all the reality shows and the im dumber than a retard shows.

      Will not see a season two.

      Just what exactly did Mr. Nunez do to warrant such severe punishment? I mean really, they didn't even do that to enemy combatants in Git Mo ( and after seeing the pilot, I would chose waterboarding over live blogging the entire season of NBC's latest turkey ).

      Hey guys that's why they call it ENTERAINMENT.
