"Top Gear," the popular British car show, is shifting into a new era starting in May 2016. But according to a report from The Mirror, that won't include making the show live.
The outlet reports new host Chris Evans has been pushing BBC producers to broadcast the Sunday-night staple as it happens, but execs are reportedly refusing to greenlight the idea. (Video via BBC)
It makes sense that Evans, a veteran of live programming, would be revving his engine about this. A longtime morning host on BBC Radio 2, he's also hosting "TFI Friday," a television show that prides itself on airing live. (Video via Channel 4)
