So much for his definitive stance that he would never host Top Gear.  I will definitely give this new new Top Gear the benefit of doubt, and I will watch it once it starts broadcasting.  But I am not expecting it to become the success it once was.


Eh, what else could he do? If he said he wanted to host earlier people would have judged him harshly, and especially with all the hype going on.

It's a bit like if you like your friend's girlfriend: if they have just broken up, the decent thing to do is to leave it alone. However if time has passed and he's now with someone else, any reasonable person wouldn't mind you taking interest in her.

 

 

Not to mention he's getting a few millions quid in payments. I'm assuming it's a step up from what the BBC are currently paying him. And besides, it's not like he isn't interested in cars anyway.

God, that dude looks like a total wanker. Never seen or heard of him before, cause I'm not from Britain and all, but still. He just rubs me off in the wrong way.

 

Will wait for whatever Clarkson and co are doing.

This is pure speculation but: I reckon Clarkson and his friends have taken a substantial pay cut, without Netflix there would be no one else to give them an offer ever since Sky indicated they couldn't hire them.

If I was director of Netflix my mouth would be watering and I would low-ball them as hard as I could, writers-come-presenters with nowhere else to go: sounds like a great opportunity for a bargain to me. I'd want them cheap especially since I'd soon be plowing millions into every episode to meet the standard viewers are expecting, I'd need to minimise the risk for losses as much as possible.

Wait...what?

The interesting thing with Chris Evans is that he's also been involved in a number of perceived offensive incidents with the things he has said on air. One would think that with the numerous fiascos Top Gear was involved in, they'd bother hiring more carefully minded people?

Controversy brings in more money, that's why Clarkson was there as long as he was and that's (likely) the reason Top Gear became as popular as it did.

However the saying goes. There's something about him I just don't like. Can't quite tell what it is.

Well, the end of an era. Thank you James, Richard and Jeremy for these last 13 years.

Seem like ITV are going to pick up the old Top Gear team for a motoring show and run it directly opposite BBC New Top Gear. This coud be a good resolution to whats been going on

Good news!

 

I would have never thought ITV would go on a rating war with the BBC. Yes, its going to be epic! I am so looking forward to it.
