Are Kath & Kim and Knight Rider Doomed? - Featured


We have learned some positive NBC news this week including early renewals for The Office, 30 Rock and The Biggest Loser, as well as the promise of a non-cancellation for Lipstick Jungle.


Also, though nothing official, the network also expressed a lot of confidence in Heroes receiving another season.


However, 2 shows that didn't receive such good news were freshman series Kath and Kim and Knight Rider. Said NBC at a press conference:

"The two shows were 'fair tries' but aren't holding up in the ratings" and are "indicative of shows that may or may not be coming back".

Agreed! I haven't seen Knight Rider (for good reason), and did try out Kath & Kim with high hopes, but was sorely disappointed. I think there are many canceled shows this season that will be much more sorely missed than these if they join the list. Sorry, Molly Shannon, better luck next time...

I've seen Knight Rider and I think that it should stay on. I mean, it's a good show if you watch more than one episode. But, I agree with you about Kath & kim cause its just plain BORING!

I tried to watch Kath & Kim and couldn't get past the pilot, Knight Rider on the other hand has been getting better and it seems to have improved a lot since they took that break to revamp the show and lasts weeks episode was by for the best in the series to date. But I hope they're starting to part ways with the terrorist of the week base. Plus they killed off one of the people I didn't think they would.

knight rider is awful. it should have been gone after the first episode. you just can't try to bring a show like that back. i never bothered to watch kath and kim so i couldn't say. actually i could say...it looks kind of dumb. definitely a step down for selma blair.

i for one think knight rider is improving as the series develops. lets face it, the original series wasn't that outstanding to begin with, not that i'm not a huge fan, but it wasn't exactly the most serious show on the planet so i don't know why everyone was expecting anything different with the new version. i think improvements in CG have made all the difference upgrading knight rider into a more dynamic show which i think has potential if given a shot.

I gave kath and kim a chance for a few episodes but their jokes were lame and just not funny and it sorta got repetitive. Knight Rider I had liked in the beginning because I had liked the interaction between sara and mike. But now that they changed directions, he is the only one doing missions and they have no interaction anymore. Plus it is also repetitive with trumped up missions that are kinda boring. So yeah, they need to go. I watch a lot of TV and these two are just not good.

kath and kim is the shit. it's got a specific brand of humor. i think it's ingenious and should stay on. it's like when freaks and geeks got cancelled and that show was the shit as well.
