Jeremy Clarkson just tweeted out the logo for his new show The Grand Tour. The new show, which premieres on Amazon Prime Instant Video this autumn, will feature him and his fellow former Top Gear hosts James May and Richard Hammond galavanting around the world, driving cars, and engaging in their special brand of  unrestrained fun.Clarkson was sacked by the BBC more than a year ago after he assaulted a producer, but it didn’t take long for his fellow hosts to follow him. The crew have been filming the new show for Amazon since last September, and these slow-drip teases of The Grand Tour must be agonizing for what fans they might have left.

It’s likely that the new show will never be as good as the old one, but it’s also possible that it won’t even matter, because all the while the competition has been crumbling. The BBC decided to continue Top Gear without Clarkson, Hammond, and May, but the reincarnation has been nothing short of a total disaster. The ratings are awful, and it has about a million different hosts, some of whom the dwindling audience absolutely hates, and others who are already (reportedly) threatening to leave. Meanwhile, just yesterday, the US version of Top Gear that you probably totally forgot even existed was canceled after completing its sixth season.
