    Host of US TOP GEAR

    And the host of the US version of the award wining UK series is..... Adam Carolla.

    I don't know how i feel about this choice. I believe that the sole purpose of this show will be for entertainment. But then again, isn't that the case with the UK series... In this case, i would say that Adam works well, I am anxious to see who the rest of the cast is.

    Right now i really enjoy Chris Harris (Autocar). His recent review of the RS6 was extremely well done. While it may lack a bit in the "entertainment" aspect (compared to the extreme driving sequences, editing and locations of say top gear), it's comes out above and beyond as extremely informative and to-the-point.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    I actually like Adam quite alot - very entertaining. He's pretty knowledgable about cars too, but I doubt he can drive as well as Chris Harris...

    Oh god... Even if Kimmel is a certified car nut, he has no credibility besides his occasional humor. They really need someone in the US who has some racing credentials. Scott Speed, JPM, or Jeff Gordon might be good choices.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Jeff Gordon and JPM are busy 10 months out of the year with NA(USEA)SCAR, or did you forget?

    Scott Speed ... hmmm.

    I would like to see Dennis Miller or someone with the same sort of ascerbic/witty wordplay do it.

    He doesn't like cars much and knows even less (you can tell when he ribs Jay Leno about Jay's collection on the Tonight Show during his frequent appearances)

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Big mistake.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Seinfeld would have been a perfect choice in my opinion.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Adam Carolla

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    This went from bad to worse. I cannot expect him to have sideways antics like Jeremy Clarkson unless he takes some advanced driving lessons. I can see him provide some funny moments but that is about it. Maybe this whole effort can prove me wrong but it seems lame.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    This will be Man Show + Cars. Terrible.

    Why not a group host thing - Carolla, Kimmel, Miller, and round it out with ben stiller. Then all the guys whos signed their souls away to get into show business would have a job.


    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Only one man would be right for the US version of TopGear: Jay Leno.
    Carolla is WAY off.

    Agreed. If he can fit it in his schedule, he would be the perfect host.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Haha I have no idea who he is, but with a name like that don't expect too many sideways action. Adam Ferrari maybe, but Adam Corolla???

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    I think Jay Leno and Jerry S. would have been the excellent choices.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Don't discount Carolla just yet. He's a funny and talented guy and a car nut. I'm looking forward to it.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    never heard of this corolla dude... when is the first episode expected to air?

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Neither Leno nor Seinfeld need the gig.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    My two cents: AC is a bit wussy-ish. Prolly gonna be more about him being funny than the cars.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Maybe there will be girls on trampolines and beer....

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Allen. All three are car enthusiast and are funny to boot. Perfect choices.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Will there be "Juggies?"

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Who knows though, apparently he is a huge car guy, though by looking at his previous "work" (to use the term lightly)... his interests mostly revolve around boobs and beer, evidenced by what I see as his most prolific work "the man show"

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    When does the show begin airing? Anyone know?

    I agree wholeheartedly!

    Typical low class American approach, will not be pretty IMHO!

    We're not talking about unbiased, professional journalism here. That's certainly not what you get with BBC TopGear.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Adam Corolla will be the Jeremy Clarkson equivalent. Clarkson himself said he's a jounalist that has a great job, not a race car driver (note any time he drives against the Stig the result).
    I'm sure they'll have an ex-racer like Tommy Kendall as one of the other hosts.
    I wonder who'll be the American Stig and if they'll make fun of British cars all the time?

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    If you want to watch a show with racing drivers doing the reviewing, watch Fifth gear. heh

    You may not be aware that Chris Harris has left Autocar and will shortly be seen on another medium, bigger and better than before.

    Hopefully we will provide you with a better alternative to Top Gear in a form that will be far more accessible than TV.
