Top Gear Christmas Deals Cancelled As Bosses Fight To Save The TV Show

Top Gear has fallen on hard times from his heydays when Jeremy Clarkson towered over the motoring world. To get a feel of just how bad things are, the show bosses have cancelled the festive cheer for this year. The festive special has always been a key feature of the British motoring TV show. These failing ratings have seen them cancel the Christmas special twice after Chris Evans quit. Christ Evans exit marked a new low for the show.

Bosses Interventions. The BBC bosses had planned on shooting the Christmas specials as special festive episodes and included them as part of a new series. However, the focus has gone back to saving the show and shoring up its dwindling ratings. The primary focus of the bosses is getting a great series to use as a comeback for 2017. The cancellation might work well for the show since it will allow the team to focus on perfecting the 2017 series.

Top Gear Series 24. The 2017 series will be the 24th, and it’s slated to hit the screens sometimes in early 2017. Matt LeBlanc will be the new boss on the show. He will bring a different style to the show. His is a departure from the shouty presenting style embodied by the former show manager Chris Evans. Evans quit after the show hit an all-time low viewership of about 1.9 million.

It would be interesting to see what kind of interventions the bosses will pull up. So far they haven’t announced what measures they are taking to revive the show and return it to its heydays.
