“Host Adam Ferrara has confirmed Top Gear USA will be back for a third season. The comedian-turned television personality broke the news during an event in New York City last night, according to Inside Line. The show is slowly gaining momentum in North America, and this season saw its best U.S. ratings yet. One episode drew an impressive 2.1 million viewers. Of course, that’s a small figure compared to the legions who tune in or download the original “Top Gear,” but with the American hosts getting more comfortable with each other every episode, we’ll hardly turn down more car-oriented programming.
Then again, Top Gear USA may be your only TG fix over the next few months. Jeremy Clarkson just confirmed the original show won’t be back until 2013. According to Ferrara, production on season three starts this weekend.”
