The Guardian reported earlier this week that NBC’s Knight Rider remake looks likely to earn a full series commission, after the 1980s show returned to US TV on Sunday night with almost 13 million viewers.

The two-hour Knight Rider TV movie special was watched by 12.7 million viewers, according to Nielsen preliminary ratings for Sunday.

Newcomer Justin Bruening is now the star of the show, although cult favourite David Hasselhoff made a guest appearance as original Knight Rider Michael Knight.
