Top Gear Reboot

After fronting the show since 2002, late year Jeremy Clarkson was dropped by the BBC following the altercation with one of the shows producers. In wake of his axing just days later the show also saw the departure of his fellow hosts Richard Hammond and Richard May.

After months of public speculation, BBC presenter and comedian Chris Evans took the daunting reigns as host only to resign less than a year after taking the position.

It wasn’t a surprise that the BBC didn’t decide to terminate Top Gear. Re-runs of the show alone rack in a third of the company’s annual profits. Expectedly, Evans didn’t take the role light heartedly, he was acutely aware of the long-standing success and dedicated fan base that the show has obtained. The show post-Clarkson has amassed a mix of reviews.

But, this wasn’t the only change that occurred amongst the show, the first ever non-British host joined the cast, Matt LeBlanc of friends. According to several sources, it is clear that the new cast just hasn’t “gelled” behind the scenes with rumours that LeBlanc would leave if Evans were not cut conflicting with earlier predictions of a strong dynamic forming between the pair.

Whilst ratings appear to have fallen drastically in the UK, the show is hardly a flop abroad proving to be a bigger hit than the original. It has been stated that the show remains on track internationally.

Will the show crash and burn? Have your say in the comments.
