Some vindication is coming Jeremy Clarkson’s way—besides his hotly anticipated £160 million Amazon show, of course. More than a year after Clarkson was fired from the BBC for punching a Top Gear producer, the network’s former boss concedes that the host was a talent they couldn’t really afford to lose.
You love Chris Harris, we love Chris Harris, and we especially love that he will get a fourth show on BBC America regurgitating his amazing old YouTube footage. Here’s the first trailer.
Chris Harris is the co-host on the robooted Top Gear, on the follow up Extra Gear, and he also has his own web-only show The Drift on TopGear.com. Now he’s getting a fourth hosting gig on BBC America called, imaginatively, Chris Harris On Cars.
It’s been revealed that CHRIS HARRIS WASN’T A FAN OF THE ORIGINAL NSX. As you get over that, let’s discuss the rest of the finale of the first new-new Top Gear series.
Chris Harris made his debut on Top Gear this week, absolutely killing it with a couple V12 Ferraris and likely a few extra sets of tires. Now we can expect more of that.
Top Gear is back, and from what we’ve been hearing for months it sounds like we’ll get more of the same with some of the pieces shuffled around a bit, like your favorite childhood actor who’s had some work done. It’s the Jalopnik new-Top Gear liveblog!
Radio Shack didn’t fail because people stopped buying electronics. People love electronics, more now than ever. What changed was how people expected to buy them. Amazon killed Radio Shack. The new Top Gear didn’t fail because the presenters were bad, it failed because of expectations.
As has probably been drilled into your mind more than you care to remember, Top Gear premieres today in the UK. American viewers—except those, of course, who plan to watch by other means—will have to wait until tomorrow to see the show. Regardless, we’ve got you covered on how to watch and what to expect.
Remember all those reports about new-Top Gear host Chris Evans consistently sounding like arrogant bastard? True or not, they crop up at least once a week. Apparently this week Evans told off the first studio audience of the rebooted show, so it sounds like they’re off to a great start!
The new Top Gear has been subject to strong opinions on both sides, prompted by both positive feedback at preview showings and struggles that started before filming for the show did. But the show’s new teaser doesn’t fit either of those angles—rather, it’ll may make for the most awkward 40 seconds of your day.
How much longer will you have to wait to see Clarkson, May and Hammond—sorry, habit!—I mean Evans, LeBlanc, Harris, Schmitz, Jordan and Reid? Just about two weeks and change.
The new season of BBC’s Top Gear is just around the corner, and to celebrate the newly revamp series, the BBC is adding a half-hour behind-the-scenes show called “Extra Gear” hosted by new Top Gear co-host Rory Reid.
We know the first season of new Top Gear had to be shortened because they just couldn’t do enough filming, but what they did manage to shoot is right here, from Reliant Robins to Dodge Viper ACRs with machine guns on their roof.
There have been troubling signs surrounding the upcoming revamp of BBC’s Top Gear. A new report suggests that lead host Chris Evans fought against hiring Friends veteran and car guy Matt LeBlanc as a co-host, and the show’s launch has now been delayed two weeks.
Chris Harris? Sabine Schmitz? David Coulthard? Nope. Instead, it’s Joey Tribbiani’s time on Top Gear, ladies and gentlemen.
The new Top Gear has not had an easy time so far. There’s an entire laundry list of issues regarding the show, and the latest bullet point is that new host Chris Evans reportedly threatened to quit due to interference from the BBC executives.
Top Gear (yes, the BBC version) presenter Chris Evans announced that the show will return to the network on May 8, but has not indicated who the co-presenters will be—if there are any.
