Jay Leno on American Top Gear and hosting it

http://driving.timesonline.co.uk/tol...cle3638037.ece

Cliff notes
- I hope it won't be hosted by people who don't know cars
- I hope we don't ruin Top Gear
- We cannot replicate perfection (Original Top Gear)
- Sponsors will be a big part in the reviews, losing the honesty
- Opinions expressed in America may rile up much much more
- He says no to hosting American Top Gear

I completely agree with Leno.

Top Gear cannot be replicated!

You left out the best part. Leno knows Clarkson will bash the show.

I agree, I really wish they wouldn't even try to recreate it. It's going to be a disaster.

+1 on everything said.

We'll destroy the show. I bet within a month of the American Top Gear launch, Clarkson and gang will be bashing it... and that will be great.

IMO, it'd be a lot smarter to just use BBC Top Gear as American Top Gear. Get a contract to run it on one of the big networks, and bingo, there's your American Top Gear.

I heard somewhere on the net that Adam Corolla was being considered for a host.... don't entirely know what that means.

But either way I know this American Top Gear will be a complete joke. Look at the host of every other car show out there, even Pinks. I just laugh whenever I watch any serious automotive program that the US produces, it's all bullshit...

Ya I posted a thread about that a month ago. According to Edmund's Insideline Carolla is a potential host.

Welcome to the land of the free

Btw, I really appreciate how Leno just seems to "get it." He's a true enthusiast and knows what most of us know..

Top Gear - (Clarkson + Hamster + May) + censored opinions + some sub par host like Carolla = Failure
