I'm sure that would work brilliantly. Did you ever notice that shows oriented towards men always seem to require female presenters, and yet one very seldom sees a male presenter replace a female one. I don't recall any male names being bandied about for The View lately.Top Gear is an institution (not to mention an enormous golden goose for the BBC), but it is on the wane. The jokes aren’t as funny, the specials not as special. Most years the programme at least manages to provoke a decent outrage: damaging a salt pan, or insulting the Germans, or Muslims, or the disabled. Not this time. Viewers are deserting. Even the online commenters – perhaps the most devoted mob on the internet – are grumbling. Something has to change, but what? Most obviously, it needs a new presenter. A woman, perhaps?
What would a female version of Top Gear look like anyhow?
