I’d wager that these two men, by the names of Chris Harris and Mike Spinelli, are among the only people ever to get a Ford Raptor stuck on a teeny little glacier such as this one in Iceland.
This year’s Indianapolis 500 had a huge global presence, was impossibly tense and had a storybook winner. But the big news the next day was that the race “delivered the lowest national ratings in the 31 years [it] has been broadcast live,” as the Indianapolis Star reported. The problem is, ratings aren’t the real…
In the United States, 1.53 million people got up at 8 a.m. ET to watch Formula One cars parade around Monaco, making it the most-watched F1 race since NBC took over F1 broadcasts in 2013, reports WTF1. It’s a pleasant surprise among the usual news of motorsports’ shrinking audience. Somehow you cared about the Monaco…
There seems to be pretty strong evidence that TV personality drivers Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara, who hosted the last American iteration of Top Gear, are be coming back to make another show. Presumably about cars, because what else would they do?
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
The web show featuring Jerry Seinfeld staring blankly at other comedians over coffee is “on the market” to switch distribution from its current home at Crackle, according to insiders blabbing to The New York Times.
Watching motorcycle racing on television has never been easy, but the road racing governing bodies and the beIN Sports Network has just reached a deal to make that a whole lot easier for 2016.
Yes, that’s right. There’s a chance you might get to see Brad Pitt’s ass with a SAMCRO tattoo across it, coming to an FX screen near you soon. So help me God if Kurt Sutter kills him off though, that Opie nonesense was far enough.
The only regular racing coverage ESPN still hosts are NHRA drag races. ESPN occasionally brands ABC motorsports broadcasts, and they host the X Games, too, but as far as normal racing season content goes, NHRA is all they’ve got. That will no longer be the case next year, as NHRA goes to Fox Sports 1.
Woe be unto you if you’re trying to watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans in America and accidentally decided to trust Fox Sports to cover it. Hahaha. Haha. No. We’ve had this discussion before. I’m not sure I’d trust them to broadcast anything without randomly preempting it for poker, or quilting, or professional farting.
Hey, guys, do you like watching motor racing? On TV? When the schedule says there's going to be motor racing? Too bad, there's college basketball or something else to show. Hey, this sounds familiar.
You know all the really cool motorsports that we don't really see on TV right now, like the World Touring Car Championship and the World Endurance Championship? That's all about to change: European-based Motors TV is looking to expand into North and South America.
Jay Leno hasn't been a regular on TV since his stint on The Tonight Show ended earlier this year. But he has been online, talking cars on Jay Leno's Garage. And now it sounds like he's coming back to TV with a brand new show all about cars.
Meet "The Game Plane." This new game show was filmed on Allegiant Air flights at cruising altitude earlier this year. It's part quiz show, part game-of-chance, and it all looks very cheesy. Contestants compete for cash and vacation prizes. Take a look at the preview below and decide for yourself.
Noted Merkur enthusiast and Jalopnik editor-in-chief Matt Hardigree will be on Bloomberg TV's Street Smart around 4:30 p.m. to talk about Mary Barra, GM's new CEO.
Every now and again, your Jalopnik staff is allowed to unchain themselves from their keyboards, get cleaned up real nice, and appear on a medium known as "television." Not me, though; I'm considered far too handsome to ever appear on TV.
NBC is taking over Formula One coverage in America this year from longtime broadcaster SPEED. At first I was skeptical. Now I can't wait. It looks like the coverage will be what every single F1 fan has wanted for years. This is a good thing.
TLC's Abby & Brittany continues to gently tease out the privates lives of the conjoined Hensel twins by showing how they have adapted to performing the most common of tasks. On one of last night's episodes, they ate Chicago deep-dish pizza (stomachaches resulted), rode a Segway (balancing issues ensued) and drove a…
