It actually looks pretty decent, with those three as the main lineup. So now we get to see the Grand Tour AND this new version of TG (thankfully without Chris Evans!). I would say that is a win-win!

I have to admit those three look like they may make a watchable show for me. I could not stomach watching woody woodpecker on the last series. I watched 3, but didn't care to see the rest.

Plan to give this version a shot.

Watched the last 2 episodes of season 23 today, and despite hating Evans, that was still better tv than TGT.

Then I watched the first episode of S24, and it got even better :)

As I was watching this "new" new topgear, something strikes me as i was drawing some comparaison with topgear France :
The constitution of the presenters is the same : you have one actor ( Mat Leblanc, Phillippe Lelouche) one semi professionnal driver ( Chris Harris, Bruce Jouanny) and one media man ( Rory Reid , Yann Larret-Menezo alias Le Tone).

yep. And you had the same with Top Gear USA.

one actor (Adam Ferrara) one semi professionnal driver ( Tanner Foust) and one media man ( Rutledge Wood).

True. The difference being that only Adam Ferrera was actually funny, Rutledge was a little awkward but generally OK-ish, and Tanner Foust was downright unbearable... And the challenge-centric format was crap.

I think Matt/Chris/Rory is doing a good job and as result season 24 is a surprisingly entertaining car show.

I speed through the most of the couch section, which I don't find particularly enticing except for LeBlanc's enthusiasm for farming equipment (which is genuinely funny). And I'd like to see a little more of Rory. But solid thumbs up from me for 5 episodes I've see so far :) - which is actually more than I could honestly say about CHM TG in the latter years.

i hated Adam Ferrera, such an annoying prick!

at least Tanner Foust knows how to drive, and Rutlegde has a passion for cars
besides some childish gibberish, Adam Ferrera didn't add anything to the show
