Joined. I really think it would work after all the BS going on around NBC. Heck, NBC could have something on their hands of they decide to do a Top Gear USA on Network TV.

Unfortunately that would leave The Tonight Show without a host.. unless he does double duty?

Support MC.com peoples.. $9 bucks. Timmy needs to get that wheelchair into the 10s!

If he leaves the Tonight Show (for real) to host Top Gear USA, I'm all for it.

Yep, Leno humor and Brit humor are two entirely different animals.

And I dunno if Leno's denim ensemble would compare well to the shirt and sport jacket setup of topgear.

I love top gear and love how they rag on anything..

but the american verion only Jay could do. It would not be the Brits top gear and can not do it, but at least it would be our own

Would Jay be able to round up a bunch of American guys (who are real characters in their own right) with great driving skills and a wicked wry sense of humor? If not, I'll stick with the UK version.
