Super sports car K.I.T.T. is closer to becoming a pickup. NBC has inched closer to ordering a full season of Knight Rider, defying odds and critics' voices at the same time.

The network has ordered more scripts of the freshman series, which is generally a good inkling that Knight Rider will be give a full-season pickup.

Sure, it ain't Shakespeare, but it's good enough to get a back-nine order from struggling NBC.

Knight Rider to drive all season long

After seeing about 15 minutes of the Knight Rider premiere, I would never have thought the hokey action-drama would see its way to November. Shows what I know.

This topsy-turvy (mostly turvy) television season has given the industry its first surprise, given that NBC has ignored critics and given a full-season order to Knight Rider, according to Variety.

Knight Rider drops three cast members

Knight Rider was given a full-season order from NBC a few weeks ago, and promptly saw its ratings drag immediately after. With that kind of vote of confidence from the network and little to show in return, it appears that the show's producers have decided to kick it up a notch and trim some fat.

TV.com Top 10: Shows in Danger

If shows were kept around based on their quality, television would be unrecognizable. Unfortunately, great shows are often rewarded by throwing them out on the curb as the business is cruel to those that can't find audiences. Another round of eliminations is just around the corner, and these shows are in danger of being sent packing. But do any of them have a chance at survival?

NBC remake to ride on as full-blown series; ABC grabs five new pilots, including fantasy show Captain Cook's Extraordinary Atlas.

Knight Rider given green light

Proving that old can be new again, NBC has given the remake of Knight Rider a series order, says Variety. The show was given a test-drive as a two-hour made-for-television movie back in February, and high ratings made everyone at the network drool and thumbs-up more K.I.T.T. and company.

Variety speculates Knight Rider will be parked in a Friday-night time slot. The new Knight Rider retains the team of a man and a talking car (now voiced by Val Kilmer) from the original, but throws in contemporary times and new characters. An official announcement is expected Wednesday when NBC announces its 2008-2009 schedule.

ABC spent the last few days stocking up on pilots, picking up five since late Friday, says The Hollywood Reporter. The network grabbed a mixed bag of programming, with a trio of tried-and-true cop dramas, a family-centered comedy, and an unusual sight for primetime ...

Las Vegas creator, Fast and Furious scribe is new showrunner of NBC's remake.

Knight Rider gets new driver

Earlier today, NBC officially announced that Knight Rider was being picked up as a full-blown series after a successful two-hour backdoor pilot.

Also revealed today, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, was that the show found its brains. Gary Scott Thompson, creator and showrunner of the recently canceled Las Vegas, will serve as showrunner and executive producer on Knight Rider.

Executives at Universal Media Studios (formerly NBC Universal Television Studio), the production company making Knight Rider, said Thompson was perfect for the show, given his experience with successful automobile-obsessed films--Thompson wrote the screenplay for box-office surprise The Fast and the Furious.

"If you think what the series would be, it's The Fast and the Furious meets Las Vegas," Universal Media Studios president Katherine Pope said of Knight Rider.

I'm not sure K.I.T.T. would consider that a compliment. Knight Rider will be both fast and furious this ...

Gob is Knight Rider's K.I.T.T.

It's not exactly the Arrested Development reunion that everyone was hoping for, but at least we'll be able to hear Gob Bluth's voice talk to Michael once more.

NBC today announced that Will Arnett, who played the popular not-so-adept magician and brother to Jason Bateman in Arrested Development, will be voicing the supercar K.I.T.T. in the network's telefilm remake of Knight Rider. Arnett's role on the all-too-short-lived Fox comedy helped him launch a successful career that has included parts in 30 Rock and the films Let's Go to Prison, Blades of Glory, and the upcoming Semi-Pro.

As previously hinted at, David Hasselhoff will also reprise his role as Michael Knight. However, the TV movie will focus on Mike Tracer, a 23-year-old "jaded" army vet (and previously mentioned to be Knight's son, but not confirmed in today's release from NBC ...

New NBC sched pushes Heroes

NBC opted to play its cards boldly this year, announcing its fall lineup well before its rivals did. Of course, the early reveal came with the caveat that things were most certainly subject to change.

And change they did. Today, NBC revealed the premiere dates for fall's new and returning shows, with things kicking off in mid-September before the bigger guns come out later that month.

America's Toughest Jobs leads things off on September 12, up from its previously announced summer 2009 date. The show will rip a dozen contestants away from their normal day jobs and thrust them into a variety of challenging occupations, such as oil drilling, lumber logging, or extreme fishing.

A little over a week later, NBC relaunches one of its big properties in ...
