Knight Rider Races to a Ratings High

If you were caught up in the nostalgia of the ‘80s Sunday night when NBC aired its second-generation Knight Rider than you’ll be happy to know that it looks like we haven’t seen the last of Michael Tracer and KITT.

KITTOn Sunday night more than 12 million viewers tuned in to see the new improved KITT, giving Knight Rider a 5.0 rating, the best a TV movie has seen in nearly three years.

NBC has made it clear that the movie was doubling as a pilot.  And with numbers like these, you can expect to see this high-tech car and its new driver this fall.

We will have to wait until May when NBC announces its fall lineup for confirmation.  But if I were you and a fan of this ‘80s update, I’d reserve some time on my schedule in September for more Knight Industries adventures.
