It SUCKS that Jeremy Clarkson's sucky world view is considered entertainment.
Taken in isolation, I'd agree with you there but in a world where X Factor, Flog It, Cash In The Attic, Dickinsons Real Deal, bloody property programmes, bloody cookery programmes (sorry Liz!), Heirhunters, Pointless, The Chase, etc haunt the airways, then Clarkson is slightly more entertaining than they are....
And there is always the chance he'll crash at high speed. They need to give him the next dragster to drive and maybe tamper with the brakes
I do like some of his WWII documentaries though -- the VC one was very interesting
He's a smart bloke who ensures he performs to his target audience. If you don't like his presentation, well, you are not his target audience! In much the same way as I am not part of the target audience for "Coronation Sh*te", "X-f**ter", "I'm a knob, get me out of here before the creepy crawlies I'm so scared of eat my head" and "EastbloodyEnders". Oh, and football.
I do like to watch top gear just to see how un-PC he can be and on a certain level i do agree with him on a few things. but then again I am related to a daily mail reader so perhaps i've been tainted.
