Can I be the Stig?
The crack-team of automotive snoops over at Jalopnik have been all over the whole "Top Gear USA" thing. (For those who don't know, the original Top Gear is the easily the best show for motoring types on television. For more information about the British TG and all its awesomeness, check out the link on the right bar of your screen.)
The cast of the TG USA has been officially announced and the NBC program will be hosted by Adam Carolla, Tanner Foust and Eric Stromer. You should know the first two presenters (Carolla=comedian, Foust=rally driver), but Stromer is more of an unknown (he worked on HGTV on some home makeover program).
Let us hope the program doesn't suck, but there is no way it will ever live up to the expectations set forth by die hard US-fans of the original. Why? Adam Carolla is not Jeremy Clarkson. That's why.
