What I find most odd is that they simply copied the old format (with very minor changes, perhaps not for the better). If you have exactly the same show and only change the presenters, you'll only be judged on the presenters.

They'll need to get a few shows behind them before it starts to fit together. When Clarkson and co first started together they weren't exactly brilliant.

Exactly. People have forgotten how awkward it was then Clarkson and co started off the current style of Top Gear

Evans is annoying, he's just jumping around like a spare tit looking for attention.
"That's without the 1.2 million views (so far !) on the i Player. Obviously as these ate THE ACTUAL FACTS, they'l continue to ignore them."
"More bad news for the Top Gear haters: consolidated figures for the first episode of the new series have now past 5.6 million and counting."
"Top Gear series 1 episode 23, catch it again tonight 7 pm BBC2. That's when it's on. FACT."
"Top Gear audience grew throughout the hour. FACT. Won its slot. FACT. Still number one on i Player. FACT. These are THE FACTS folks."
"The new Top Gear is a hit. OFFICIALLY. 23 % audience share. 12% MORE than the opening episode of the last series. These are the FACTS"

Chris Evans continuing to be shouty on Twitter about the first show -
That the first episode drew big numbers reflects on Clarkson, Hammond and May's show, not yours. Your show will be a hit if it can keep those numbers (which are already well down on the series 22)
You would expect viewing figures to drop further for the next couple of programmes as the first show back would have piqued a lot of curiosity and interest.

With the line-up the picked, it went exactly as you would have expected and feared

Really shows how delusional he is to rely on "facts" that would have been the case regardless of the quality of the show. People were going to tune in to see and judge anyway.
Evans is a terrible presenter and narrator. "FACT"
