Knight Rider Gets Full Season

knight2.jpgDespite the mediocre ratings, it appears NBC has enough faith in the 80's remake Knight Rider to give it a full ride this season.  They have ordered 9 more episodes, making it the first pick-up for the network and the 4th newbie of the season along with CBS's The Mentalist, FOX's Fringe and The CW's 90210.

With its first four episodes, Rider has averaged around 7.4 million viewers (2.4 rating) in the adults 18-49 demographic.  This puts it just about in the middle with it's competition. 

I'm curious, have you been watching?  I haven't seen a single episode myself but now I'm wondering if I should give it a try.
