NBC has picked up "Knight Rider" for a full season, sources say.
The network has ordered another nine episodes of the Wednesday night action-drama, which is produced by sister division Universal Media Studios.
The show has been modestly rated, typically matching CBS' freshman comedies for second place in its 8 p.m. time slot. The most recent episode was seen by 6.9 million viewers, and earned a 2.3 adults 19-49 rating and 7 share.
The "Rider" pickup marks the first freshman fall NBC series to receive a full season order, joining CBS' "The Mentalist," Fox's "Fringe" and CW's "90210."
