Like Ben Silverman? Watch ‘Knight Rider’ Tonight!

As you've probably heard, if his new fall lineup is the disaster most are predicting, NBC wunderkind Ben Silverman could be fired! This is precisely why you, dear reader, should watch tonight's series premiere of the Silverman-okayed Knight Rider, which is the first of NBC's new shows to make its debut. Sure, the reviews are terrible — but if it's not a ratings hit, the network will dump our favorite TV executive and replace him with some boring stuffed shirt who goes to meetings, hates the Olympics, and thinks of his own ideas for television shows. Please, we're begging you: From 8 until 9 p.m. tonight, tune your TV to NBC. If you want, you can even leave the room — the advertisers will never know the difference! Save Ben Silverman!
