I didn't realise that many people outside the uk watched tg. I didn't think clarksons humour (namely taking the pee out of americans/french/germans) translate too well!

Someone please post it when it airs! Wish I received it. Looks like clarkson liked it given what was written in the tg mag, where he experiences the intoxicating "powerrrr!"

New episodes usually don't air in the US until a few months later, but you can find them posted online.

You'd be surprised to see how popular it is in the US and other parts of the world for that matter.

LOTS of people watch TG outside of the UK, older TG episodes for example are shown on BBC America in the US, and of course lot of people watch it on their computers by downloading the episodes.

It's actually for a good part Clarkson's sometimes crass humor and tendency to not always be nice to the cars they review that people look for. In the US, lots of shows would not dare to trash the companies that may be buying ad space on the same network.
