The show that holds the crown of the world?s most popular television program comes to Channel Nine in 2010. Seen in more than 100 countries with over 350 million viewers, Top Gear is the network?s number 1 acquisition and rightly so. Work is also underway on an exciting series of Australian made specials.
Nooo, they'll try and do local craps "specials" aka the US Roadtrips Vietnam etc...
....good god I hope I'm wrong.
(I'm not saying a great "special" couldn't be done here in Oz, just not by Ch9)
