Chris Evans Quits Top Gear As Ratings Plummet

The British presenter announced he resigns from his position as a presenter on Top Gear after just one season.

Chris Evans’ resignation came after the disappointing ratings for the show, with the last episode hitting a series low with an average of 1.9 million viewers.

Mark Linsey, Director of BBC Studios released the following statement: “Chris is stepping down from his duties on Top Gear. He says he gave it his best shot doing everything he could to make the show a success.”

“He firmly believes that the right people remain, on both the production team and presenting team to take the show forward and make it the hit we want it to be. The new series has so far notched up over 30m views in the UK alone and has already been sold to 130 territories worldwide.”

Chris Evans said: “I have never worked with a more committed and driven team than the team I have worked with over the last twelve months. I feel like my standing aside is the single best thing I can now do to help the cause.”

“I remain a huge fan of the show, always have been, always will be. I will continue to focus on my radio show and the allied events that it encompasses”, he concluded.

The news came after a report saying that BBC executives were not happy by Evans’ performance, both on- and off-camera. At this point, it’s unclear what will happen with the rest of the presenters, with some reports saying that Matt LeBlanc is going to continue on the show for at least one more season.

Since the debut, the revamped Top Gear failed to impress the audience while the production team was facing trouble thanks to many executives departing from the show and reports putting the blame on Evans’ behavior.

Let’s just hope that the next Top Gear season will be a better one, especially if Harris and Reid get to keep their jobs.
