I wonder if it's something to do with tonight's originally-planned episode having Clarkson on the panel...

If that is so, it'd incline me rather more to the view that bobwilson is right in his rants about the BBC.

That was my thinking. I think they'll hold the episode back until after the end of the current series.

Ah nice one guys.....Don't know why the beeb is so scared, everyone knows Jezzer doesn't mean or believe the things he says! And those that do probably dont have the IQ to watch QI anyway ;-) :-p
I'm sure some people sitting around waiting to be offended!!

Delaying our enjoyment of QI just by being there... Damn, but Clarkson just lives to piss people off, doesn't he...

He's becoming more toxic by the week - a caricature of himself that he feels compelled to play up to. Top Gear used to be funny, but now his self-importance has ruined it completely. Not watched it for 2-3 series now; if it was Hammond, May and that Jason Dawe character they resurrected the show with it'd probably be alright, but Clarkson's ridiculous ego suffocates the whole shebang.

So he doesn't really mean what he says - that makes it alright, does it? Bollocks. He thinks he's bulletproof, and that's often when a hard, hard fall is just waiting around the corner. Thinks he can say whatever the hell he likes and get away with it because he can always say "oh, I didn't really MEAN it" - my arse. How much stuff does he slip in the middle of it all that he DOES mean?

In short - don't feed the troll and he'll go away soon enough. I hope he doesn't get asked back for Series J.

Just who thought that repeated Jimmy Carr was an acceptable substitute for the Dara Briain we were meant to get today, I cannot imagine.

If Mr Carr were doing a free gig a five minute walk from my home, I wouldn't go - he just isn't funny. So we didn't bother watching QI this week, and got our Dara DVD out instead.

Clarkson's popularity is as high as it's ever been - except for the faux offendedness of a few brainless Trade Union extremists bent on removing freedom of speach and dragging the nation into a soviet-style "utopia".

The problem here is the BBC's absolute subjection to the will of the Unions, indicating that the BBC's senior management should be replaced en masse with non-gelded people of stature. In fact to be quite candide I suggest that selected highlights (perhaps a decimation) of the BBC's senior management should be executed in front of their families in a veritable Byng-fest.

Not that I feel strongly about it or anything...

I note that Mr. Carr's DVD release this Christmas is called Being Funny. Well, there's a first time for everything, but I wouldn't be surprised if it falls foul of the Trades Descriptions Act...

How is stating that you don't really care about the strikes and making a synical remark about the BBC-Balance a reason to not broadcast an episode?

I think you have run out of (IMHO)s so you can use this one.

What? Are you trying to indicate that comedy is actually subjective? I'm baffled.

Suze has come clean and admitted that she enjoys X-factor, so I am equally happy to admit that I enjoy Top Gear. As a light entertainment programme I find it amusing, and it's good to see something that isn't cookery, gardening or talent[sic] shows.
