The revamped Top Gear aired for the first time last night, and people seem to be really disappointed.
People have been skeptical that the popular show would be successful without its three famous presenters, and Chris Evans probably has the toughest job in the world right now. Jeremy Clarkson, love him or hate him, left big shoes to fill and Evans is always going to be living in Clarkson’s shadow. There has been drama surrounding the show since Clarkson was fired, and even during the new show’s filming, there were reports of how terribly it was going. But the new show finally aired last night, and the internet is going nuts over it.
Here are a bunch of tweets that kind of sum up how people felt about Top Gear last night:
There were a few positive tweets:
New top gear doesn't have Jeremy Clarkson? Instantly far better.

Thought Top Gear was pretty good too be honest.

Didn't mind the new #TopGear. Definitely can't knock it for a first show ??? (Star of the show was the Blackpool mayor though)

The new Top Gear wasn't too bad. Chris Evans needs to chill though

Apparently I'm the only one that thinks the new Top Gear is pretty good

But mostly, people didn’t seem to like the new show and Evans as the host. Luckily, Matt LeBlanc seems to be a hit.
Just watched 1st top gear Matt Le Blanc surprising good the rest was piss poor and boring imo

Watched the first 20 seconds of Top Gear and I already hate it. Chris Evans trying to hard to be like Jezza

Chris Evans presents Top Gear like he's an over exited school prefect that's desperately trying to be cool. Matt LeBlanc however is great.

Why is Chris Evans shouting all the time? My head can't take this on a Sunday night. #TopGear

Feel like I'm back in like 2001 watching Robot Wars, think that's the best way I can describe the new #TopGear
— Butler (@Dave1865) May 30, 2016
Chris Evans trying to be Jeremy clarkson on the new top gear is almost funny…
— Rynne Ellis (@rynneellis) May 30, 2016
RIP you'll be missed from my weekly viewing #TopGear
— Dan (@DanGrimhead) May 30, 2016
I am the first 10 seconds into the new top gear and am already asking myself if it is a joke
— ❁millie❁ (@millie4498) May 30, 2016
25 mins in to the new #TopGear and my eyes are bleeding. Someone should tell the studio audience they're supposed to be happy
— Ian Girvan (@cardman2142) May 30, 2016
This one’s a bit melodramatic:
New top gear is soooooo bad I wanna die just so I can stop watching it
