Default Jezza bell: Jeremy Clarkson suspended, no Top Gear this week! :(

Jeremy Clarkson Suspended By BBC,*Top Gear*Won't Air Sunday


I'll withhold judgement until more is known, but there is NO Top Gear without all 3 of them.

Agreed. Curious as to what happened as it seems the producers have been in his corner previously...

I bet he called someone a name... you watch, this will all be about Jezza calling someone's ancestry into question with a racist/offensive name/analogy...

Sadly, this would not surprise me at all.

My favorite car show of all time, I will say though that he (Clarkson) really needs to learn to keep his mouth shut in regards to certain topics. He is old enough to know better. I like his "not suffering bullshit" attitude but you still need to watch what you say in regards to certain topics.

But since we have no idea what actually happened with the "fracas with the producer" we will just have to wait and see what happens.

Captain slow just posted this on twitter:

No Top Gear this weekend, apparently. How about 633 Squadron instead? @JeremyClarkson @RichardHammond





Interesting...Not negative OR positive...what say Ye Apex?

Edit: They're bantering back on forth like it's the show. Seems they planned the exchange and showing 'solidarity'? Might not be the best word, but seems they aren't 'mad' at him.

Radio Times is reporting that Jezza tossed a punch, but also makes it sound like that punch did not land. They're also saying all three remaining shows for this series have been removed from the listings...

Doesn't Clarkson own the show? I thought I read that somewhere before

No. Clarkson and Andy Wilman own the Non-UK rights to the show. Clarkson/Wilman are who you go to if you want to make a version of the show for another country, and they get a big chunk of the UK show's revenue earned from overseas broadcast. The Beeb is still in the driver's seat in the UK.

Despite it's flaws it is still better than 95% of the dreck that American studios produce for TV

I have often thought that would be a dream job to become a fourth wheel on that show
