That's right folks, the car show you've been waiting for, The Car Show, will offer up its first episode this evening at 10 p.m. Eastern. Will it suck? Will it wow? You will be the judge.

Color us less than optimistic, however. While Dan Neil's skilful print review background and Matt Farah's tire-shredding antics are good indicators for success, Adam Carolla's discount-Tim Allen-on-a-bender vibe seems posed to taint the whole deal. We're not sure how John Salley will it into the mix, though if the clip below is any indication, he may be a welcome dose of mellow.

But enough guesswork. We'll see tonight.
