Dont knock winning formulas look at Jeremy Kyle - profitable, quality... sorry I can't keep this up. Or how about "Deal or no deal" now call me a cynic but I reckon you could easily get a person of small staure to go round underneath all those desks and stick what ever chuffing value you want in those boxes and that " banker" - there's no one there!

Some say he has an honorary degree in getting flanned, some say his waist has been in the shade since DelOrean went bust - all we know is he's a mop topped, potbellied porker who cant shut up!

It's still entertaining but it is beginning to loose what ever it used to have - some of the original stunts where much more entertaining than this.

Now we wern't all moaning when they were plonking big outboards on the back of pick-ups and watching James May sink in his car/yacht and the hampster sinking too! they have to make TV for eveybodys taste. Just driving cars across a dryed out lake is not everyones choice. I tend to agree that very show dragged on a little though.

We watch Top Gear every week on BBC America and laugh our "arse" off. There is no comparable car show on U.S. television. I guess it is still new here but we love it.

Don't give away too much, we are at least a complete season behind the UK.
