      Not sure if mentioned, but I'm sure Ed does a YouTube channel - thats where anything worth watching automotive wise is anyway.
      And since they announced live TV on YouTube, its only a matter of time before we can start tuning into our favorite racing series on YouTube anyway.

      Cable TV is virtually dead. They can't adjust fast enough. I dropped Cable two years ago, and get my fix through YouTube. I'm dropping Hulu soon also...Netflix within the next couple months. I wouldnt be surprised if YouTube (Google) ends up buying Hulu in the near future.

      Yea, Hulu is starting to piss me off. I only watch a few shows, and a while back started watching the DC comic shows, then they got pulled from Hulu and have to watch it through the cursed CW app (basically gave up on it). Now Daily Show is gone, have to watch through the CC app.

      Maybe he will move to Youtube..then he can do whatever he wants and get paid from ads, and forget product placement most of the time.

      These "car" shows on TV are a joke. I know htey need to make money, but I feel that youtube is where they shows are headed for good.

      I rarely watch much tv outside of sports now. I watch Youtube channels about learning stuff. From fixing broken stuff on my cars to cooking. I'd subscribe to Edd's channel.

      Somehting Different

      I liked it better when Mike and Edd where in the UK. They would pull cars that you don't see very often and talk to quirky British folk. It was something different. And though I liked Mike's over the top salesman shtick, I stayed for the work Edd did, to see how he did it and the final outcome. One of my favorites was the Audi Quatrro episode. It's a car I always liked with a great history and they made an interesting show of it:

      Good for him, but this could be good for us. Kind of like the fact that the current Top Gear and Grand Tour are both entertaining shows. There is a chance that has replacement is good enough to watch, and that Edd get something else going that is also entertaining.

      So it could be a win win.

      Over the past 2 series, half of the show was based in UK and the other, over in US.

      So, they've still had it split in between two countries.


      As I said, I really hope Edd gets picked up by either Amazon or Netflix.

      As for Mike, he does bring a LOT of valuable points to the show and is extremely disciplined when it comes to buying cars... well, except a couple of occasions, one of them where he bought a complete dud over in Japan.

      If what Edd says in his YouTube video is right, it sounds like Discovery is going to flush the show down the toilet with pointless format changes in order to increase profits.

      That's how I read it, but Edd's being tactful or polite, since you don't want to burn bridges in the business.

      US production companies aren't used to the actual car show personalities doing the the actual work on the cars.
