Unfortunately, the ratings did not improve enough after the retooling (a steady average of 5.5 million viewers), and despite [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff strong international interest]] and high numbers of video stream viewing and episode downloads, NBC failed to include the show in their official Fall 2009 line-up.#

** On the subject of KITT's speed - and showing the show's age somewhat - as time (and automotive technology) has progressed, KITT's ticking digital speedometer - specifically, its ''readout'' - has become less outlandish and simply "high-speed" by today's standards. Often, the speedo was seen ticking up towards the mid-to-high 300s (presumably KPH), while hypercars such as the Bugatti Veyron (and Chiron) have posted top speeds north of ''400''.

* NoEnding: Both the TV shows.

to:

* NoEnding: Both the TV shows. Well, "The Scent of Roses" could count as the final episode of the original series, as David Hasselhoff wanted it. However, because it was too dark, it would have made too much a DownerEnding, so NBC chose to air "Voodoo Knight" as the final episode instead.

* TheBusCameBack: Bonnie in season 3.



* PutOnABus: Bonnie in Season 2 of the original.

to:

* PutOnABus: At the end of the Season 1, Patricia McPherson, having disagreements with producer Robert Foster, was fired. So, during Season 2, Bonnie in was never seen or mentioned. However, due to the fan reaction, and lobbying by David Hasselhoff and Edward Mulhare, McPherson then returned for Season 2 3. The season's opener explains that Bonnie had went back to college to continue her studies. Though Bonnie insists throughout the episode that she won't return to the Foundation, by the end she finally does, and would stay for the remainder of the original.series.


Added DiffLines:

* SeriesFauxnale: David Hasselhoff originally wanted the series to end with "The Scent of Roses". However, as the episode was considered to be too dark, "Voodoo Knight" instead aired as the final episode. Nevertheless, in some countries "The Scent of Roses" has still aired [[OutOfOrder/LiveActionTV as the final episode]].

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: While the technology that Wilton Knight produced can be extremely dangerous (KARR, the times when someone has taken over KITT or used KITT's body), they are overlooking one important thing- Wilton Knight built a self-driving car. Build a normal car without the [[NighInvulnerability Molecular Bondage Shell]] or the other gadgets his supercars have (like Turbo Boost or Microwave Jammer), maybe even dumb down the AI a bit (where the AI can still drive but it can't play trivia games). Now you have a vehicle that can drive itself with a 0% error rate and can take over driving if the operator cannot. Traffic accidents? Gone. Driver falls asleep at the wheel? No problem. Driver is intoxicated or is under the influence of drugs? The car can drive them home. It really flies in the face of "one man can make a difference" when fighting "criminals above the law" seeing as how KITT and Michael help just one person a week, when this technology can save hundreds in a '''day'''. The only explanation why this occurs is when Devon explains to Michael that Wilton didn't allow his technology to be used is because some tech from Wilton had been stolen in the past.

** One episode of the original series takes place at a film studio; in reality, the UniversalStudiosHollywood backlot. Michael and KITT drive past the Clock Tower and Courthouse Square from BackToTheFuture, and KITT remotely controls the mechanical shark Bruce from Jaws (complete with theme music).

* TakeThat: A very blatant example occurs in the first season of the original Knight Rider. The episode features a race between cars running on alternative fuel (KITT's liquid hydrogen included), and one of the cars is an orange Dodge Charger, driven by two stereotypical Southern state villagers, and runs on moonshine. Guess [[DukesOfHazzard which show]] this is supposed to be. When the race eventually happens, Michael and KITT first [[spoiler: Turbo Boost way above that car]] and barely halfway into the episode, [[spoiler: the car blows up and nobody inside survives]].
