Top Gear USA

  • Cast of Top Gear USA

    The second series of The BBC’s "Top Gear" seems to be finding its stride once more. "The Grand Tour," featuring our favorite trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, has found success on Amazon. Americans are once again getting a "Top Gear" variant all our own with the confirmation of "Top Gear America" coming to BBC America. It appears that all is well when it comes to shows featuring dudes playing with cars. And now it looks like there may be some additional competition looking to capture viewership from three familiar faces. Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood, and Adam...

    'Top Gear America' to return with new cast, new network

    Mention to car guys "Top Gear USA" and they are likely to sneer. After an aborted first attempt by NBC that was centered around Adam Corolla, the History Channel version could never live up to the British show it was named after. The trio of rally racer Tanner Foust, auto journalist Rutledge Wood...

    Top Gear USA Season 4 Starts September 3: Video

    Whether you love or hate the guys from Top Gear USA, television is never quite as satisfying when the show isn't on--where else would we get our fix of people doing stupid stuff in cars (okay, maybe Youtube...)? Rutledge, Tanner and Adam return to our sets this September 3, and as you can see from...

    Top Gear USA Pits NASCAR Against McLaren MP4-12C Tonight

    Top Gear USA has shaped up to be much more interesting than it was in its early episodes--to the point of being rather entertaining in its third season. Tonight's show, airing at 9 p.m. Eastern, looks to be another step forward. Pitting NASCAR driver Carl Edwards in his No. 99 Roush Fenway Racing...

    It’s amazing what you can learn from just a picture, like the one shown above, posted to Instagram by Tanner Foust. At first glance, it shows a shredded right rear tire, seemingly from the number 99 Sprint Cup car of NASCAR driver Carl Edwards. Look closer, and you can see a clap board in the...

    There's no shortage of both haters and lovers of America's version of Top Gear. Where you stand depends as much on your sense of humor as it does your love of cars, but whichever side you're on, you'll get to experience a third season of the show. The return of Top Gear USA for season three was confirmed by Adam Ferrara last night via Twitter. Ferrara was at the A&E Networks 2012 Upfront (A&E Networks is the parent company of the History Channel, home to Top Gear USA) with co-host Rutledge Wood to announce the show's return. While we're largely (still) on the fence about Top Gear USA...

    General consensus among Top Gear fans wasn't too positive for the first season of Top Gear USA. For anyone who'd caught episodes of the UK version and enjoyed the crazy antics of Clarkson, Hammond and May, it just wasn't up to scratch. Heck, even if you'd not seen an episode of the UK series it...

    Last night, I ate some frozen pizza (definitely not delivery...) goofed around on my new Android tablet, drove a few dozen miles in the CTS-V Coupe I have in the driveway and generally forgot completely about the season two premiere of Top Gear USA. In other words, I had fun. If you found yourself...

    Whether you loved it, hated it, or were somewhere in between, Top Gear USA's first season was apparently successful enough commercially to justify a second run at becoming America's car show.

    We’ve known for some time that HISTORY was planning to air a second season of Top Gear USA, after the show’s first season, which comprised some 10 episodes, managed to pull in a total of 60 million viewers. Now, thanks to the show’s Facebook page, we know that the first episode of the brand new season will air on July 24. While the show never reached the popularity of the original the British version, which itself just reached season 17 when the latest episode aired in the UK last Sunday, it’s got its own following and the potential to be great. In case you missed the...

    HISTORY has decided the first season of the U.S. version of Top Gear cut enough mustard to pick up a second. The first 10 episodes of the series pulled in a total of 60 million viewers. The notoriously cranky Jeremy Clarkson even gives the American show his seal of approval: “Top Gear is our...

  • Top Gear USA hosts mug during "Donut" trailer

    We found out earlier this week that Top Gear USA would get its own Stig (and no, he's not the fat one) as well as the Suzuki SX4 as its small car for big stars. Today, the History Channel has loosed another pair of trailers for the show, and the air date of the first episode: November 21. The two trailers, entitled "Theater," and "Donut," feature such catchy phrases as "awesome," "holy moly," and "this is like Dukes of Hazzard." Despite the quaint commentary, the videos show us what looks to be a uniquely American take on the Top Gear formula. That's a welcome relief for those that feared a...
