Default "The Car Show" on Speed

Looks like the Speed channel is creating their own competitor to Top Gear. It's simply titled "The Car Show", and one of its four hosts is Adam Carolla. It's obviously not going to be as good as the original UK Top Gear, but it might give the US Top Gear some serious competition. It starts in 2 weeks, on July 13 on Speed.

First off, their studio looks pretty boring. The four hosts are just sitting at a sports desk. Obviously, Speed is putting all the production effort in the field stuff, and I can agree with that decision because it looks like they didn't have much of a budget. At least their field stuff doesn't look too bad. It's worth at least checking out a few episodes, I think.

I like the fact that they're not trying to compete with or recreate Top Gear. I think that's the biggest problem the US Top Gear has. It's just impossible to compete with the UK original. The Car Show looks like it's going to have its own style, and although it looks lower-buget and not as good as Top Gear, at least it's not trying to be.

As a huge fan of the Man Show, if they are able to bring Adam Corolla's sense of humor over, then I'm an instant fan. Honestly, Top Gear USA f'ed up by not including him on the show to begin with.

I'm gonna watch this...nothing will ever compete with Top Gear UK, so no point in even trying!
