Jeremy Clarkson OUT at Top Gear, BBC Reports

BBC – Jeremy Clarkson’s contract will not be renewed after a physical altercation with a producer, the BBC’s director general Tony Hall has said.

Lord Hall said he had “not taken this decision lightly” and recognised it would “divide opinion”.

However, he added “a line has been crossed” and he “cannot condone what has happened on this occasion”.

Clarkson was suspended on 10 March, following what was called a “fracas” with Oisin Tymon in a Yorkshire hotel.

The row was said to have occurred because no hot food was provided for him following a day’s filming.

An internal investigation began last week, led by Ken MacQuarrie, the director of BBC Scotland.

Well, it happend, The BBC fired Jeremy Clarkson, one of the popular hosts on one of it’s most popular shows, Top Gear.

This sucks for the future of the show. On one hand, it’s easy to see why he got fired, and over something as stupid as the hotel not serving the food he wanted.

On the other, it makes you wonder what the future of the show will be like. Will Hammond and May leave out of solidarity? Will they replace Jeremy and carry on? I don’t know.

I’m curious to know though, as are a lot of people.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls: Episode 1 (Zac Efron) Review

I saw ads for Bear Gryll’s new show on NBC and I was immediately intrigued. I’ve always been a fan of Man vs Wild on Discovery, especially the episode with Will Ferrell. That was one of my favorites. His new show, Running Wild, is basically Man vs Wild with celebrities. And actual celebrities at that. Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, and Deion Sanders to name a few.

Donnie Does Chinese TV

You better have your butt in your seat, your 3 beers and a Fanta, and 18 free minutes cause that’s how much time you’ll need to watch the latest Donnie Does episode.

You finished watching it yet? Okay, good. Now you can read the following stuff I wrote.

That scene in front of the mirror? Oscar worthy stuff. Deniro. DiCaprio. Mahoney. They should just toss his name for Best Actor. Sorry Leo, but I don’t think you’ll win it this year either.

The drama doesn’t end there, though. Sneaking into a Chinese TV studio owned by the Army? Ballsy move right there. Dennis Rodman probably has a free pass into North Korea but Donnie has to sneak into a Chinese TV studio.

After all that hard work, finally getting up on stage and spilling his guts to the audience, he gets replaced by a chicken. Not even a goose or a duck. A supposed “stunt” chicken. That bird probably got first class on the way to the show.

BTW, the more I watch these videos, the more I think I need a pair of camera glasses.
