      Putting Evans and Jordan on the same show was a masterpiece of casting. The most annoying cu*ts on TV their for an hour every sunday.
      It is a poor copy of the original show and I cant wait for the GT.

      Chris Evans must have something on higher ups at the BBC. How such a universally hated man gets so many good deals is beyond me. 1.7 million viewers lost in 1 week says it all.

      It's ridiculous to lose that amount of viewers. To put it in context, even when Top Gear was being shown at the same time when millions and millions of viewers were watching the climax of the epic 2008 Wimbledon final, it still pulled in more viewers than the most recent episode! Watched the second episode myself but decided I wouldn't be going on beyond ep 3. It's not as atrocious as people are making out but it's predictable and boring and the presenters have no chemistry. Looks like a show that was reassembled too quickly and in a panic after the abrupt end of the previous series. I said the format under Clarkson, Hammond and May did turn predictable in it's last few years but was still perfectly watchable, funny and at times brilliant. It's peak was probably about a decade ago in the couple of years before and after that massive crash that nearly killed Richard Hammond where there was much more variety and a good balance between serious and silly. In hindsight it probably ended at the right time and hopefully the move to Amazon for that three and a slight change in format will refresh it.

      I haven't watched a second of this series, for me top gear was done two series ago. It was just repetitive, three men race one way or another and the result is a close one. The only thing keeping that format going was the three presenters so when they got taken out it was just a tired format.

      He can no doubt go back to being a One Show luvvie alongside Matt Baker and Alex Jones and be like them again - setting out to get offended and apologising for the slightest utterance that comes out of the guests' mouths.

      Or clearing his name in that police investigation...
