New Top Gear series ends with seriously low ratings

SHARE

The newly revamped series of Top Gear has come to an end – but with ratings lower than ever.

According to RTÉ TEN, the show, fronted by Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc, pulled in a mere 1.9 million viewers for the last episode of the season – considerably lower than previous seasons starring old co-hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

Although the episode aired at the same time as the Euro 2016 match between Iceland and France – it still doesn’t spell good things for the show’s future.

Bad news: Top Gear hit a ratings low | BBC

Chris previously said he’d be “disappointed” if the show pulled in less than five millions viewers.

The news comes after rumours have been rife that Matt and Chris haven’t been getting along as co-hosts, as Matt reportedly threatened to quit if Chris wasn’t fired.

Meanwhile, people have taken to Twitter to call for a change in Top Gear, and plenty advised the show to give Chris Evans the boot. Yikes.
