I couldn't stand that trio either, as for the Chris Evans breakfast show I'd rather pour molten lead down my earholes than be subjected to that shite at 6am. Enforced joviality is bad at any time of day.

Evans is not my preferred option first thing either but for 10m people he is and they aren't forced to listen to him so he is evidently popular.

I think Top Gear will move on but it'll do so in increments and in two years time it'll be a very different animal to that with which we are so familiar now.

And I think it had to because, and obviously the Clarkson/May/Hammond fanboys will disagree with me here, it had become very dull. It was as if they had run out of ideas about 3 series ago; all that remained was smug self-indulgence and embarassing "banter"; something had to be done.

I wouldn't argue with any of that Franny, apart from maybe the viewing figures or listening figures, the 10m that listen to Evans probably get depressed by radio 4 aren't 18 and get angry listening to radio 1, same with local radio and haven't found six music yet. There must be about 30 million people turn the radio on in the morning and Evans is probably the least annoying of the bunch, find it hard to believe myself but nowt so queer as folk. The figure that like Evans is probably a fraction of the 10m.
The top gear viewing figures can be viewed in a similar light, at peak viewing times I could get a few million to watch me driving round in my van, it's what most people are doing at that time of night, watching the box.

I agree that the weekly shows had become dull in the extreme. I thought the specials were some of the best viewing on tv though, like chalk & cheese.

Even then they were wringing every last drop out of the same old same old tired gags: Clarkson in something ridiculously powerful and inappropriate; Hammond in something small and cute; May in something boring and sensible. Yawn. Along the way they'd do really stupid stuff all heavily engineered towards some ultimately lame pay-off gag that simply wasn't worth the hassle: "slope on the bridge"; painting something offensive onto the cars (or a train); the number plates in Argentina; a beer named "Jizz" or something... "Oh James! You've got Jizz dribbling down your chin! Is that Jizz on your shirt? Ho ho ho." Not.

Tired tired tired. Dull dull dull.

Even the Specials had become parodies of themselves.

Says it all for me. Clarkson and Hammond are total bellends. I think I could probably bear a pint with May before finding something better to do.

Then again, I find car addiction a bit sinister.

Good. Get rid of the wooden yank as well.
