I still think, despite its popularity, it's too much of a "niche" to succeed on BBC One. I'm happy to be proven wrong, but yeah. I can't see it working too well.
I’ve got almost no interest in cars. But even for me, it’s quite easy to dip in and out of and always enjoy it. It’s more or less a structured reality show which happens to be themed around motoring with blokes mucking about. I2 of the 3 presenters are very popular stars in their own right too certainly with more than a niche profile.
I’m sure it’s a case of if it gets more viewers on BBC One it’s a bonus but as long as it keeps what it’s got, it’ll be doing alright for the channel in it’s given slot.
