It goes without saying that Top Gear just had one of its most tumultuous seasons. That’s saying something considering that the controversial trio of Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond all had nothing to do with it. Now it appears that the worst has passed for the beleaguered show and the BBC is now looking forward to a new season that could return the show back to its prominence. The first order of business in getting to that point is to resign Matt LeBlanc, one of the few standouts from the last season. To its credit, the BBC took care of that quickly by signing the former Friends star to a two-series deal to serve as the main host of Top Gear.
