If I was a BBC exec i would've suggested a contest. People could get voted in by the viewers. The hype and the viewership would be unreal and you would probably end up with 3 good looking, entertaining people. I mean hell you could redo that every 2 years or so.

What a fucking dump the UK has turned into.
It's funny how books like V for Vendetta, 1984, and Children of Men held Britain up as the last, strong bastion of hope and civilization. They will literally be the FIRST developed nation to fall into disrepair. They will be the FIRST to be bombed by a collective allied force against Islamic global takeover.
>>14267550 It's funny that all these companies and people (all over) shit all over white people. Only to forgot that white people make up the majority of people in the west and Places like England. Keep shitting on white people and you'll only have tumblr on your side. The rest will get sick of it. We'll take some shit because of our past, but there's a limit.
Certainly the thing's doomed to fail if they're just trying to create the same show with a different cast, because the three presenters' on-screen relationships, and their collective creative relationship with Wilman and his team, can't really be replicated. Many have tried.
If the new show is going to work, Evans and whoever else need to have their own creative licence and get on with it on their own terms, and the Beeb needs to accept that the end product is going to be different, probably radically so.
Oh, and Evans et al's vision needs to not be shit, which is far from guaranteed.
Daily reminder new top gear is a shit show before it even gets off the ground:
-Evans crashed a brand new Jaguar tester on his first time around the famed Top Gear track.
-The show “has had to become a lot more PC following the Clarkson row,”
-Evans, called a “control freak,” is at odds with producers; he wants total ownership over the show like longtime producer Andy Wilman had but the BBC says there’s too much at stake for a show worth “more than £50 million a year” in merchandising, live events and other revenue sources.
-The BBC wants Evans to give up his radio work to focus on Top Gear, and Evans hasn’t been willing to do that.
-Evans is completely terrible at pre-recorded videos/talking or giving commentary while driving, which is all Top Gear is.
-The production team apparently “doesn’t know anything about cars,” leading the Top Gear magazine staff to be brought in to suggest ideas.
-Ratings/excitement around Coulthard, Schmitz and Harris as flat as fuck. Further troublesome because the appointments came after big names including Zoë Ball, Jodie Kidd and Suzi Perry had all been linked to the revamped show before they ruled themselves out, which is why they are panicking to get Sabine in
-Casting issues are tied back to Evans, who wants them because they’re relative unknowns outside the car world, and he wants to stay the star of the show.
-BBC is in full fucking panic mode over Jeremy and the gang's new show for Amazon. Insider source quoted as saying top BBC executives were "Completely freaking out" over the show and it's inevitable ratings rivalry with Evan's Top gear
-Jeremy, May, and Richard are getting a 6.5 million dollar an episode budget for the new show on Amazing
-New TG:UK is having serious issues getting cars because Clarkson had all the industry and private owner connections to hook the show up exotics/super rare cars
-Pic related for original trio's new Amazon salary
>>14267599 wait so Sabine is in? Her shit german accent, grating personality, and angry german banter... HAHAHAHAHA this show is doomed. Who wants to listen to that ugly dyke ramble on? She's a mediocre racer at best.
>>14267329 I'll watch the new series simply because I love to watch a train wreck. Something that survived years of controversy and other problems will be taken out by a blonde twat and the BBCs ever meddling.
>>14267599 Old new Top Gear started in a shambles too, with the two rejected pilots and so forth. I bet there were people back then who clicked their tongues and said how it just could never be right without Tiff Needell and Vicki Butler Henderson, and the BBC was probably terrified about ratings wars with the show's real spiritual successor, Fifth Gear.
You're probably right, and the result will just be an embarrassing shambles, but I reckon we should wait until we actually see it before we make any concrete declarations.
i cant wait till they lose all their car sponsors and wind up doing full seasons of each episode being "lets see what the guys can find for 300$ an see which has better gas miliage" - every season of US Top Gear
>>14267550 You'd be surprised how many normies watch top gear. I know quite a few girls that watch top gear occasionally. Not as many as I know that watch Dr. Who, and not regularly, but still a decent number.
>>14267669 >hurr girl drive car she best!!! She sucks. Barely speaks english. Shit driver compared to the 1000000 other pro racers they could have tapped. Shit banter because her shit english. Looks like a frumpy housewife.
>>14267675 They only watched it because of all the white men who built it up. Now it will be shit and uncool. Which means girls will run from it. Though a bit slower. girls only watch/do things that give them some social status.
>>14267719 Having an actual pro racer as a host is a dumb idea anyway, it's poison.
One of the things that broke/unbalanced TG:US was having a host who was a pro driver. It throws every single driving challenge they ever do, and any time the pro-driver loses, it's because of super obvious scripting
At least with Jeremy, Richard, and May, you knew there was scripting, but you actually felt like it was 3 blokes just fucking around, which is the entertaining part anyways.
No one talking about CH and how he shilled and shat on over his YT followers? I bet those sucker that still send him contributions over Patreon every month will be very happy once they find out they're paying and he just crapped out on them.
>>14267754 Thing is, keeping the old format just isn't going to work. Evans is a successful personality with a wide appeal but, as this thread demonstrates, he appeals to very different people to Clarkson and co. The dilemma the BBC execs will have faced is that they know they can't make the same program - that's obvious even to us outsiders - but at the same time, they have a lot of licences to capitalise on and a lot of merchandise to sell, and they need a show that will do that.
They'll know they need to let the new team make the show their own, but they also need to fit with what's gone on before. I do not envy the job of anyone involved with this.
>>14267774 The BBC can get good editors. Of the myriad of problems the show is facing, that isn't likely to be one of them.
That'll be another uphill battle, given that the Beeb is a massive, controlling media jew. They're going to have to rely heavily on independent, web-based sources for positive reviews, because they won't get them on BBC, CNN, Fox, etc.
>>14267674 this will probably be everyone who watches the first episode. so i predict very high ratings for episode one (if only for curioisity sake) then a slight rating drops for episode two and an absolute plummet in ratings by episode three or four.
>>14268686 At the very least we're getting 3 seasons from Amazon plus just about every fan and reviewer of Top Gear will be watching, so we'll see. I've no doubts in my mind that Clarksons new show will surpass Top Gear in ratings and critical acclaim.
>>14267329 Apparently he's been signed for 4 more seasons but had his other show canceled, and the crew HATE him like you wouldn't believe. Think about the crew, they have mostly been working with the three idiots for a decade+ and all got along, now one drunken spat that should have just been a large fine and charity work has been used to destory the show and replace their friends with 3 British "celebs" who treat the workers like garbage.
Clarkson, May and Hammond all came from pretty common backgrounds, like i'm talking working class families. as do most of the crew. now there are three prissy little bitches who chastise them for calling a woman in the break-room "love" even though they have called the woman that for 10 years without issue
>>14270408 >tg is getting shittier and shittier over the years. >It's becoming barely watchable, even for big fans of its's former glory >challenges are basically docusoap, noone anymore believes that clarkson can fix electrical problem in 928, parts are hillariusly "accidentally" falling off (in a great camera shot), 2 or 3 different wehiclecs taking different roads appear at the finish within a seconds from each other. >one drunken spat that should have just been a large fine In my opinion, Clarkson delibarately sabotaged the whole case, tg was going down anyway, and he/they didn't want to sink with this ship.
>>14270471 You know I think the BBC might be hedging their bets more than we think. If the Chris Evans Car Show, whatever form it takes, crashes and burns, Sabine Schmitz, Chris Harris and David Coulthard are all more than capable of making something with a much bigger focus on the cars rather than the presenters.
Wouldn't pull anything like the audiences a SUCCESSFUL Evans Top Gear would, but I reckon the three of them could be relied upon to pull a significant proportion of the nation's car bores out of the woodwork.
>>14270536 Yes, he hosted the highest rated Breakfast TV show of the 90's the current highest rated Radio breakfast show, three of the highest rated Friday night light entertainment shows of the past 25 years. There is a reason he's one of the best paid presenters in the business.
>>14270743 >The guy has behaved like a prick. He changed his job, for fucks sake! Because he's succesful journalist. That's what people do instead of living in mom's basement. Stop projecting your "nigga ghetto loyality rules" on actual grown men business you retard.
>>14270874 The whole >muh British cars thing was largely down to the production team, I think. I was always a lot more suspicious of how they never declared any given M car to be any less than the top of its class (so far as I can recall, at least).
Stars working on Autocar, gets a good paycheck, flips them the bird and;
Creates Drivers Republic, sets up partnerships with some odd fellows he scammed into believing the project, flips them the bird leaves them hung and dry and;
Pairs up with that JF Musial twat since he got waved with the big bucks and big connections. Gets into the works, starts to get to know some of the names in the industry, much by Musial connection, starts flipping him the bird, as seen in some of the videos then takes the chance after /Drive is shelled by going pay to view and abandons ship and disses Drive;
Sets up his own channel, sets up a Patreon, "gib moni plox, Munkey poor" while doing subliminal ads for auction houses and calling them videos. Then gets on again with Drive with Musial without saying anything to anyone. Then apparently gets onto Top Gear, without saying anything to anyone, while still accepting Patreon pledges.
And this is a very summarized overlook on his path.
Yeah, that's changing jobs, but that's the prick way of going at that, pissing and shitting on everyone along your path. It has nothing to do with living in basement or anything else.
>>14271067 That still surprises me an awful lot. I mean, the car companies know that a lot of people will still watch the first few episodes, just to see how it turns out, Chris Harris definitely has connections in the industry, Evans probably has a fair few personal connections, and even if all that fails they can always ride on whatever contacts the magazine has.
>>14270408 >Clarkson, May and Hammond >working class families these top gear fans are fucking deluded and have no idea what they're talking about but of course, top gear is mostly for people who have no idea about cars and after watching it feel like professional car mechanics
>>14267663 lets not forget that old top gear and old new top gear were basically two different shows format wise and bbc will not let the format change any since the old new top gear turned into such a cash cow for them
>>14275190 doesnt make it any less copy pasta or make it worth posting really since its all over the internet and everyone has seen it before. Regardless at least make it sound new and interesting, add some flair and make it your own, thats how you get away with plagiarism, bucko
>>14277554 By the way, expect more of the latter. And unironical electric car shilling of course. Maybe a couple of classic /o/ cars being destroyed like they're British Leyland turds as nails in the coffin. /rant
no wait. http://www.upi.com/Entertainment_News/2016/01/19/Top-Gear-host-Chris-Evans-gets-car-sick-while-filming/3171453216740/ >top gear host >car sick
>>14275204 Thing is, they have to. The reason the previous format worked was because Wilman and Clarkson built it to from the ground up, including auditioning for presenters whom they thought would fit with what they wanted to create. Now the stakes are a lot higher, so they can't do that - they need the names to keep drawing the audiences. At the same time, though, they can't just introduce a completely new set of presenters and expect it to still work, because it obviously won't.
The top brass aren't stupid. They'll be aware of that. So the format is going to have to change to some degree.
>>14271080 >Not listening to the radio. You are seriously missing out on some of the best comedy, drama and news programing, all delivered while you commute to and from work, or just drift around the backstreets at night, especially since DAB made 225 stations available nationally.
>>14277718 The studio was a leased hanger, the on site "production office" is owned by the BBC but it's a Portacabin, Amazon could bring in one if Dunsfeild are up for it (assuming they don't have an exclusivity clause in the contract with the Beeb). Lotus still use the track for testing and there are a couple of driving days and driver training schools that use the track but not televised obviously.
>>14281211 Not only do I doubt your claims, but I still don't see how you can honestly claim that it "isn't that fast." I mean, it won't be "that fast" when it breaks down or catches fire because lolaudi, but that thing is fucking fast, nigger.
0-60 in 4.2s? Fast 1/4mi in 12.8 @111mph? Fast http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2014-audi-r8-42-v-8-manual-test-review
Sure, that isn't the V10's 2.7s 0-60 or 10.6 second 1/4mi, but that is still fast. Faster cars in the price range like the AMG GTS aren't just fast, they're mental. 11.2s 1/4mi from the factory? Mental. 0-60 in 3 seconds flat? Mental.
