Falling ratings of Top Gear have prompted the BBC to rethink how much screen time the various hosts get, as an unsourced article from The Telegraph reports. The result should be less Chris Evans and more Rory Reid and Chris Harris. I suppose it’d be more charitable to just say people want more Harris and Reid, but…
Chris Evans getting sick, Matt LeBlanc getting a tour of London in a Hoonstang, Chris Harris finally driving something, Sabine Schmitz finally driving something and Rory Reid finally driving something made for one of the best episodes of Top Gear in years.
The second episode of the new, rebooted Top Gear lost 1.6 million viewers over the premiere episode, but everything is fine!
Chris Evans, actor who plays Captain America in movies, is not Chris Evans, radio man who shouts on Top Gear. But thanks to their identical names and similar Twitter handles, people are tweeting horrible things at the former rather than the latter over the TV show. It’s pretty funny.
After Sunday’s Top Gear train wreck, host Chris Evans had a bit of a Twitter meltdown. He started citing weird statistics as if to prove that new Top Gear is better than old Top Gear, much in the same way that a trash fire is more popular than puppies. But it turns out that it actually wasn’t so popular after all.
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!
I’m an enormous fan of the UK version of Top Gear and have seen every episode at least three times. After it was announced the show would return with a new cast, I was both hopeful and apprehensive to see what had happened to my beloved franchise. Now that I’ve seen the first episode, I think it might’ve been better…
By now millions of people in Europe will have seen the relaunched Top Gear on television, and probably millions more will have seen the show through... other means, not that I’m one to judge. Let’s talk about how it went.
It’s a little hard to come by any reliable information about the latest iteration of Top Gear before it airs. On the one hand, you have the British tabloids, who seem to have a rabid and unusual desire to take the show down. On the other hand, you have the BBC, which says that everything is perfect all the time always…
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.
Two things, I think, have been missing from all the buzz around the re-imagined Top Gear: ex-Jalopnik writer and professional powerslider Chris Harris, and ass-kicking ‘Ring Queen Sabine Schmitz. We get a lot more of the latter in this latest trailer, and it makes me feel a lot more optimistic about the show.
Several men and women who worked with Chris Evans in the ’90s claim the BBC Top Gear host was known for exposing himself on the job.
After yesterday’s drama about Chris Evans reportedly making a producer weep, we decided to reach out to the BBC to figure out what the heck is going on with Top Gear’s host replacement. They finally got back with us today, saying that Chris Evans is basically a modern day Jesus Christ. But they would say that,…
