LONDON (AP) — The BBC’s flagship car show, “Top Gear,” has ended its season finale on a low.
The revamped show featuring new presenters Matt LeBlanc and Chris Evans has failed to make an impact on viewers. Figures released Monday show it attracted just 1.9 million viewers on Sunday night.
The show was rebooted in May following the high-profile departures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The well-known trio drew an audience of around 5.8 million viewers before leaving to start a new show on Amazon Prime.
Competing coverage of the Euro 2016 soccer game between France and Iceland may have also caused the slump for the finale. Some critics think changes are needed if the show is to regain its popularity among car fans.
