    "The BBC said it had no plans to replace Evans when Top Gear returns for a 24th season."

    Grand tour

    It's leagues above TG.

    Scripted
    . Yes

    But it's funny and it's old top gear.

    I like Matt, ihate Evans but the BBC should learn that the TG 3 were the holy grail and were utterly stupid to allow them to walk

    No need to hate on Evans, he quit at the end of last season. It's all on Matt now.

    Walk?

    Jeremy was pushed, assaulting your co-workers is generally frowned upon no matter how valuable you may be.

    The other two I expect were made offer their wallet's couldn't refuse by Amazon, not much the BBC can do about that.

    Hammond and May needed their cash-cow as much as he needed his two sidekicks to validate his old-man jokes.

    Quite enjoying Chris Harris though. At least he can describe a driving experience without a plethora of cringeworthy metaphors. Not to mention his driving is better and more entertaining than the above three combined. Although Clarkson's spin-outs were fun to laugh at.

    !

    Maybe Chris Harris will insist on visiting proper tracks? Or they'll go to Angelsea, but the shots were never that good there on Five.

    The three of them need time to grow. MLB and CH are fine, and RR just needs some experience. When he's got someone to banter with he's lots of fun. Just needs to work on the in-car experience sharing.

    That was first proposed in 2005. It's taken ELEVEN years to bribe^h^h^h wear the local planning committee down.

    Might be watchable without Chris Evans in it. Matt LeBlanc was pretty interesting to watch in my opinion, as were the other two hosts, but Evans didn't have a drop of chemistry with anyone.

    That's what the lineup should have been limited to in the first place. I hope a natural camaraderie can develop so they can make the show their own instead of letting some halfwit at the BBC force them to be Clarkson, Hammond and May 2.0. If Topgear isn't allowed to move on from the previous regime then see no point of carrying on with it.

    That trailer was more entertaining than the whole of their first series.

    This!

    I hope it implies they've genuinely worked it out :)

    See now that looks more like the '3 mates dicking around in cars' format everyone wants/was expecting...

    Only watched one episode of the last series, I wonder if this series will hold my attention?
