NBC Fumbles: Top Gear USA Heading to Cable

That’s hopefully moving to cable. If I knew anything about this journalism biz, three weeks ago you would have read, “Dude claiming to be Top Gear producer mentions USA show destined for cable between bumming smokes and chatting up my fiancée at bar-b-q.” But alas, mice, men, etc. Here’s today’s story. The new Knight Rider was [...]

Where For Art Thou, Top Gear USA?

Who knows. NBC hasn’t said a thing about the UK’s gift to car geekery or its US debut. What they have said is that the atrocity that is the Knight Rider remake is guaranteed another nine episodes — making it all the way through the remainder of the season. I was an impressionable tyke when [...]

Top Gear USA: Free to Diss Lousy Cars

We can all breathe a big sigh of relief. At some point back in 1987 Jay Leno said it would be impossible to do Top Gear in the US because sponsors would get pissed if the hosts said bad things about their cars. OK, it was earlier this year, but 21-years ago in internet time. [...]

Top Gear: Meet the Top Gear USA Hosts

Adam Carolla, Tanner Foust and Eric Stromer — these three will be hosting the US version of every piston head’s favorite TV show, Top Gear. In truth, we’ve known about Adam and Tanner since 1997 (feels that way) but the BBC and NBC were very tight lipped about former soap opera heart throb and current [...]
