David Hasselhoff is walking away from his biggest hit in years, (in this country, anyway) America's Got Talent.

NBC issued a statement saying, "David's been an integral part of the success of America's Got Talent, and we are sad to see him go."

Although Hasselhoff has been in and out of hospitals this year for his problems with alcohol (including a stint at a London hospital after AGT producer Simon Cowell's party), Hoff's reportedly leaving by choice. David's apparently got his sights set on a show of his own.

No word if that show is Celebrity Rehab.
