Jeremy Clarkson
In our inaugural Reader’s Choice Awards, you named Top Gear BBC as your favorite auto-related TV show.

Now, according to some reports, the show’s future could be in doubt. Host Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended (again) due to a reported “fracas” with a producer. Here’s the short-but-sweet announcement from BBC:

“Following a fracas with a BBC producer, Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended pending an investigation. No one else has been suspended. Top Gear will not be broadcast this Sunday. The BBC will be making no further comment at this time.”

Clarkson was already on a tight leash. Last May he wrote in his Sun newspaper column that he was told by the BBC if he made “one more offensive remark, anywhere at any time, I will be sacked.”

How will Clarkson’s suspension affect the future of Top Gear BBC—if at all? Will Clarkson remain on the show? And can the show survive without him? Tell us your thoughts below.
