It was on an upward trend however it was getting old. The editing technique of recapping the entire episode after each commercial break should have been a sign that this was coming.

I say there's a better than average chance that either LeBlanc or Evans or both or the whole show will be departing within 12 calendar months.

reports over the weekend are LeBlanc will not do the new season if Evans is still around. So I'm expecting to see news that Evans is dropped soon since they start filming the new season soon.

Saw that report as well, and would not be surprised if true. I think Evans would be hard to work with. Yes. More so than Clarkson.

Is Matt LeBlanc dating 'Top Gear' executive producer?

Meanwhile I want a Rolls Royce Dawn. Any car that comes with an umbrella in the door is cool.

The umbrella storage is just awesome. Can't imagine why other car companies haven't done it yet. Seems so simple and probably not that hard to do.

This just in. Chris Evans@achrisevans
Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough. The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best.

Thank god for that. I can't stand his voice.

Looking forward to Velocity's car show with Brian Evans. The failure of Top Gear has spawned imitators.

There wasn't much to be happy about with this season - I think they need to shut it down until it's fully retooled.

Just realized: I'd rather be punched in the face by Clarkson, than... ...er... ...have to watch Evans on TG one more time.

Police have a long standing constant investigation on going against entertainment personalities especially associated with the BBC.
It all started with a DJ called Jimmy Saville who molested thousands of women and girls. He even had keys to a hospital where he molested paralyzed kids. Saville owned a RRC converted by Carawagon. Nobody stopped him.
Many well known personalities have been caught in its web only to be exonerated after years of "investigations".
