What Does Jeremy Clarkson Have To Say About Top Gear's Dismal Ratings?


Not much, but he does build a box.

Just a few days before the revamped Top Gear starring Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc debuted, former host Jeremy Clarkson posted something brief but kind of interesting on Twitter. Although Clarkson has yet to comment on his friend’s (Evans) new gig, he still has an upcoming new show to promote. With The Grand Tour premiering this fall, Clarkson tweeted the following: "The films we have made for the Grand Tour are emerging slowly from the edit. I’m quietly hopeful you’ll like them."

Very good chance we will, especially considering Top Gear’s viewership dropped from 4.4 million to 2.8 million from one week to the next.

Chances are the BBC isn’t too happy right now and we wouldn’t be surprised to see some changes to the show in some way in the near future. Could that mean a change of hosts? The format itself? Who knows. But in the meantime, watch Clarkson being timed by Richard Hammond and James May as he attempts to put a DHL box together. For the record, DHL is apparently a new sponsor for their show.
