We know Jay Leno loves cars. We were hoping he’d have had a hand in helping to bring Top Gear to the US, but will have to settle for the news that he will include cars and stars (together) on his new primetime show. Speaking at a press event for the show, Leno extrapolated on his new format, which includes an advertiser-friendly “Green Car Challenge” race segment pitting celebrities against each other.
Other segments will include the familiar Jay-walking and funny headlines, as well as Daily Show-esque taped correspondent shorts.
Car racing on primetime. Only Jay could manage to save us from an American Idol without Paula!
