Re: Adam Carolla to host US's 'Top Gear' (16volt)

Hmmmm. I know from his construction show he has a Aston but this could go horribly boring.

He's actually a bit of a motor head. Everything from various race-built BMWs, to 350z. He's got a good bit of car lounge in him.

Give the guy a chance and see how he does on the actual show before complaining that it's a bad choice.

His 510 was detailed a couple years back in Grassroots.
Definitely a car guy, so maybe the show will be good? No Clarkson/Hammond/May though.

I'm a fan from his Loveline days. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Me, too.
I said in an earlier thread that he has horrible stage presence... but then so did James May in the beginning.
At least it's not some B-list ****** with no knowledge of cars.
I actually find this to be somewhat reassuring and comforting.

Fail. This has FOX Ramsey Kitchen Nightmare written all over it. Take a witty British show and turn it into a pile of turd. Why even bother?

One problem with big celebrities is big celebrity paychecks. I imagine they'll have one big celebrity like Jay Leno, and two not as expensive hosts.

Looks like I'm somewhat right. I'm still guessing Leno would be the main guy, Carolla would be #2 or #3.

FWIW, I think he's a good guy for it. Funny, quick whitted, and good taste in cars. From what I remember from an older episode of Loveline, he has an M3 and an XJR...prolly different now.

You just know the US version will try to inject too much humor in that show (especially Carolla's), make it into bite sized chunks of mindless entertainment (maybe throw in a couple of celebrities), and generally suck

It's going to fail because NBC will refuse to have any negative remarks said about sponsors and then everyone will start bitching about how crappy the show is and that its so biased and then they'll cancel it after one season because ratings will be through the floor. I'd love to see it succeed but with NBC behind it I don't think it's gonna be a great show...I mean just look at how much of a piece of trash the Knight Rider TV movie was.
