Last I heard Clarkson was still suspended from the BBC and they are holding the final 3 episodes of the current season pending the outcome of an investigation in to the incident. Not likely to be a good outcome for us as fans of the show or him given that he was on probation before the incident.

I like watching Top Gear but unlike Chris Harris or Evo, you can tell it is made for a mass market and not just car nuts. TBH, if they stopped making TG, it wouldn't break my heart. They have had a good run and they can't really take the format much further.

Well they could try testing cars seriously...........but that's a smaller market  :scratchchin:

How about a new show. Have a lot of presenters on the list and use them for various stories so its not the same three blokes all the time.

Chris Harris
Steve Sutcliffe
Jason Potato
Jethro Boddington
Tiff Needle
James May
Harry Metcalfe

Proper car reviews
Lap times
Road trips to the best driving roads in the world
Car news
Inside the factory stories
Specialist tuners (i.e. Singer, Alpina Ruf).
My cars - interviews with collectors or owners of one very interesting or iconic car.

For what it's worth, Apple (US) just contacted me to partially refund my season pass of the current season of Top Gear, citing the fact that the season was shorter than what I'd paid for originally.

Apple don't refund money on a whim, so I assume BBC Worldwide have advised that the final 3 episodes of this season won't be screened at all.

I wonder if Chris Harris is discreetly throwing his hat in the ring at the BBC? If you replaced Clarkson with Chris
 it would still be a great show.

The other two have said they will quit, but can't see it happening......

Clarkson wont quit and the BBC wont fire him, there are things more important than principles, this is business and what's paramount is money.

I enjoy topgear as do millions globally. Clarkson can be an idiot, but I enjoy his humour. The show has moved from a car testing show to one that is based on entertainment. I think over the last what 10-15 years the current 3 presenters make the show what it is. Think of it like your favourite band. I don't think it would be easy swapping the lead singer of the worlds biggest rock band. It would be the same name, but just wouldn't be the same.
