Somehow I still feel this is a publicity stunt. No one has mentioned why Jeremy was provoked to punching his Producer and they keep talking about calling it Curtains because the show has gone on for so long.

Doesn't make sense and I do hope I'm right so the show doesn't end like this.

He hasn't quit yet, he only hinted that he might quit the show.

The BBC is vilifying him. Yes, he is a bad boy in many ways but generally he doesn't mean harm.
At least I wish they would finish this season and then kill it off if they must.
But their viewership will wane severely for sure.

Read the news, I just hope that it must be some publicity stunt Otherwise its going to be a sad ending to a very entertaining show. They were pushing their limits for all the nonsense drama they do onscreen, but that was worth it. Hope they will be back, or at lease all three presenters of topgear should come together and start their own thing. Rumors say that they were found filming for another show called Full throttle. Not to miss The Stig here, so i want all four of them

As a fan of the show, it is a very bad news. I dont know what happened actually in that incident, but all I hope is this does lead to the end of the show. I mean, I still believe they have a few years left in them and this is just not a good way to end such a cult show.

I just have a small hope that because of people's response and pressure, BBC might get pressurized to mend ways and bring him back.

Regards
Rachit.

I hope you mean doesn't. Well, allegedly Clarkson punched a producer because the food that was giving to him wasn't hot. If he really did do that, its a very silly reason. However, I doubt that the real reason is coming out of the BBC. News is around that he has apologised as well. Lets wait and see. Hope for the best.

Sorry. Thank for correcting that part. My Bad.

I agree to your point. A lot of times in such cases, what comes our of media is generally not the truth hence I am taking everthing with a pinch of salt.

I mean we all know Jeremy is capable of assaulting anybody with anything, but mostly by Mouth. I find it really hard to believe that he would actually physically punch anybody.

Rachit

Looks like the "I Quit" column is from 1999!

So until further development, we can rest easy.

Nothing official in that article. It is just sensationalism by autoevolution to link this story to Jeremy' new column about extinction in The Sun.

Top gear is the most watched Auto/TV show in the world. A lot of that is attributed to Clarkson. There's no doubt he is a British TV legend having been hosting Auto shows from the mid 80's. BBC surely rake in a lot of money from this as well. Its highly unlikely that Clarkson would be asked to leave just like that. Its also unlikely that Clarkson would leave the BBC and quite easily host a pay-per-view show. All that heavy BBC funding that they have been enjoying wont be easy to get from elsewhere. Unless he goes to USA which is again very unlikely considering he is a thorough Brit.

Im sure this will unravel and the show will be back soon. I really hope it does.

I just read that Clarkson has quit BBC and in return the Top Gear show has also been called off. No More Top Gear, sad but true.

What is the role of a producer in this context, and why should JC blame him for the cold food ?

I liked he TG team more for the humour and the antic they do.
