I like both, but I have come to the conclusion that Clarkson and Co were ideal and any other presenter will not be up to scratch.

Top gear was a good show along with wheeler dealers but it gets to a point where you just need to let them go. For me that was years ago. Leave great programmes great instead of murdering them,but there's always someone trying to flog a dead horse to bring in the money.

FFS, agreed. Flogging a dead horse with this show.

Rip it up and start again and leave it at 30 minutes too.

I'm of the above camp too. I just don't enjoy Paddy McGuinness in anything and also his reputation for being rude to his fans puts me off.

I'll never understand those that want to entertain and be in the public eye and then moan and be horrible to fans..because they're in the public eye.

I won't be watching this, I have watched all of TopGear since the 3 amigos but this for me is the end. fifth gear is a bit stale but will watch and watch Grand Tour for a bit of a chuckle and watch serious car stuff on Youtube. Job done.

Must admit, I have enjoyed Fifth Gear a lot better than Top Gear.

It's a proper motoring programme!

This.
Top Gear moved away from being a car programme towards an entertainment show. This worked because of the chemistry between Clarkson, Hammond and May. Now they're struggling to replace that chemistry so they need to get rid of it or go back to a car show.

Small minded TV producers just re using the same overpaid "Talent" again and again.

I shan't bother
