NBC Trims “Knight Rider’
NBC wound up trailing the other networks by a day with their midseason announcements. Among the details is the coveted post-Super Bowl slot going to an hour-long episode of The Office.
The following day, February 2, Chuck will air it’s 3-D episode and Heroes kicks off its new volume.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has reconsidered its commitment to the underperforming Knight Rider. Early encouraging ratings prompted the peacock network to give the show a full season pick up. Ratings flattened once people realized the show wasn’t very good. The producers trashed half the cast but ratings tumbled before the revamped episodes could air and now the order has been cut back from 22 to 17 with the season and likely series finale set for February 25.
After 15 years, ER closes its doors to new cases on March 12 with a two-hour finale that is said to be filled with flashbacks throughout the years to acknowledge the ever-changing cast. The following week, Kings from Michael Green, will debut with a two-hour opening installment.
