Tonight’s installment will be the last for a show that has been running since 2010 on History. The cable channel is pulling the plug on “Top Gear USA,” Autoweek reports.
Rutledge Wood, who co-hosts the show with pro racer Tanner Foust and comedian Adam Ferrara, broke the news on social media, posting an announcement Monday on Facebook and Instagram. The show is adapted from the long-running British car show “Top Gear,” which has been a global hit.
Wood mentioned the possibility that the show might end up elsewhere, adding: “but it’s done for the immediate future on @History.”
Autoweek notes: “The show started off a little rocky back in 2010, but quickly grew in popularity before a somewhat gradual descent in ratings throughout the third, fourth and fifth seasons. After the one-year break in the show, people took to it well, but obviously not well enough.”
The show went on a hiatus after season five wrapped in October 2014, returning for what will be a 10-episode sixth season on April 26. Tonight’s final installment of the show reportedly includes a visit to Cuba.
