In case you have never heard of it, Top Gear was the most popular show on the planet up until a few years ago when the main host Jeremy Clarkson was fired for punching a producer.
After attempts to keep the other two hosts Richard Hammond and James May, all talks failed and BBC decided to change the entire cast of the show.
Well the amazing trio did not sulk for too long, soon they reached an agreement with Amazon Prime and for a very hefty figure they got convinced to make a new show with the same basics like the last one.
It is called The Grand Tour and after the first episode aired it was an instant hit and it now has the highest viewership number for any show this platform surpassing the ratings of The Man In the High Castle.
With the current rating on IMDB of 9.6 this is one of the best rated first episodes of any show, so now that the second episode is out we can confirm that the change did the trio good and they are on their way to reaching highest popularity ever.
