Autoblogger Alex Nunez has been in a self-imposed Knight Rider cone of silence despite the series premiere being released online last week. He'll be liveblogging the episode's broadcast premiere on NBC tonight at 8PM EST right here on Autoblog, just like he did for the made-for-TV movie that aired last February, and he wants to preserve his first impressions just for you. We've also kept him in a cage during the show's entire development process, and every night we poke him with a stick while playing the Knight Rider theme song. He'll be extra ornery for the return of Michael Knight Mike Tracer and KITT to the small screen, so be right back here at 8PM EST for the fun.

UPDATE: The Liveblog for Episode 1 is here.

      How many times is this mother f**cker going to premier?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Godspeed, Alex Nunez, godspeed.

      You can see this horrible premiere episode on hulu.com right now if you dare to see just how bad it is. I can't believe they wasted so much money on this show. Everything is bad about it, hell even the car is boring and plain. The beauty of the old Kit was that he was kind of a prick and up beat. Val sounds dead as all get out.

      The episode is horrible. It's available on the US iTunes store for FREE as well as other NBC shows. :)

      It was also available on Xbox Live for free, I don't see why people hate this show so much. You knew it was going to be cheesy and FORD promoted heavily. Its not the worse show ever.

      Web episode was bad, anyone watching it on TV and having to also sit through commercials.... Bummer.
        • 6 Years Ago
        You could actually tell the difference between the show and the commercials?

        And I bow!

      you guys have to be getting paid to do this or care so much about this new Knight Rider. This has *got* to be a fix because seriously, the new car is a joke. No self respecting old school Kitt fan would be into this junk fest. I wish you luck, hope the check from Universal was worth it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        James, you need to take off the tinfoil hat. We're (meaning me) doing this because it's going to be fun. And yeah, I get paid -- but sure as hell not by NBC/Uni. Also, your "saying positive things about it" line demonstrates you are clearly not familiar with the original liveblog...
        • 6 Years Ago
        No, not the wrong blog, perhaps you missed what i said. I know Jalponik gets paid for reviews etc.. i was saying that any site pushing knight Rider as hard as Auto Blog seems to be... *must* be getting paid as well. As in, it's a fix, a paid spot etc.

        The show is a joke and posting positive things about it only takes credibility from Autoblog as a serious source of reviews etc from an unbiased stand point. Most North American auto magazines are paid off anyway, I didn't think Auto Blog was like this... I love Auto Blog.. but after seeing this attention for KR... ack.. what the heck. lol

        Check from Universal? For Knight Rider? Wrong blog, dude.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'm gonna watch it - can somebody send ME a cheque as well?

        It's like a train wreck...
        • 6 Years Ago
        They cover it because people like hearing about how it sucks. 200 posts for the original liveblog shows it draws attention, so that's why they're covering it.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The pilot was terrible and the car is tragic. It looks like it was influenced by funny cars, Mad Max, the Fast and the Furious, and a several shots of Jack Daniels.

      Really disappointing all around.

      You Guys Are All Retards ( Including You Alex Nunez ) This Show Is Going To be Awesome !!! Im Counting The Hr's To 8pm. I Can't Wait To See Knight Rider And That Badass Shelby GT500KR. K.I.T.T. Iv'e Been Waiting For This Since Feb. It's Finely Here...!!! YEAH...

        Dear god, it's back... *groan*
      • 6 Years Ago
      I saw it over the weekend thanks to FiOS video on demand. It was a great disappointment and I'm truly sad they went in the direction they went. The 'perky/ditzy' Asian chick and nerd boy 'hacker' were extra painful to watch. Watch it, absorb it, go through therapy, and just forget the rest of the season.

      I hate the show, the car and the suckfest of horror that is called 'Super Pursuit Mode'...

      *barfs*
