    Yea, and pretty much all day. So everyone can catch their dose of Michael and Kitt on Universal HD, Sleuth and even SciFi.

    Sci-fi only does a Marathon of Knight Rider maybe once a month.

    also Next Friday will be a Marathon of the INCREDIBLE HULK on SCI-Fi

    Total disappointment if you ask me. Another useless channel and I havent seen a single show of interest yet. Most shows I saw deserved to be off the air and I havent missed them at all.

    Shows that don't work in syndication are the ones that are required to watch in sequence. I'm a 24 FANATIC but would never watch in syndication. That is why Sopranos won't work when it's run is complete.

    That is why Law & Order is like syndicated on every channel it seems. You can jump in a enjoy any 1 episode. With all the spinoffs and just the simplicity of the show I think they will run forever. CSI is kind of like that also, but has some minor plot lines that are carried over from show to show.
