Sign petition to save TopGear from "Americanization"

Quote:
To: Discovery Channel

Discovery Channel Viewer Relations has indicated via direct personal correspondence that the Discovery Channel has undertaken to alter the program ‘TopGear’ from it’s original format in order to “revamp” the program for a U.S. audience.

The prospect of an ‘Americanized’ TopGear is cause for concern among North American fans drawn to this program specifically due to it’s distinct British style. TopGear, as broadcast in it’s original format, offers candid, informative, and entertaining content unique to any other automotive program. Reformatting TopGear risks losing its appeal to US fans disappointed with typical US-produced automotive programming.

The undersigned Discovery Channel viewers and fans of TopGear hereby formally request that the Discovery Channel rebroadcast TopGear to North American audiences in its original format, retaining the same hosts, automotive reviews, commentary, and other program components which are broadcast to UK audiences.
If you like TopGear the way it is.... Heres a petition to save it...

If you dont want it to change.. or dont care... Dont sign!!! lol

Thanks for your time!

Andrew

To be honest I've never seen the show. I don't have a problem with British cars since I've owned a couple Austin Healeys (Sprite and a 3000), a Triumph TR4 and a TR4A, and an MG GT in the past.

When is the show on?

For those that are a fan of the show, or even those that haven't seen it, have a look at the "Carbage" part of the website.
