New “Knight Rider” might not be so bad after all

Well, when NBC recently introduced a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR as the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) in the latest attempt to bring back the “Knight Rider” franchise — a TV movie scheduled to air next month, let’s just say I was underwhelmed. I mean, the original KITT — a modified, black t-top Trans Am — is an icon from my youth. And today’s Mustang just doesn’t look all that camera-friendly, in my opinion.

However, I must admit that this teaser that showed up on NBC recently has me excited. And Will Arnett is the voice of KITT…how awesome is that? And, just from the two words in this clip, he sounds great!
