Automotive TV shows have been around forever, but trying to find the right combination of entertainment, cars and profitability can sometimes be a daunting task. Start-up shows come and go as show producers try to find the right recipe for success. Some are met with great reviews while others have been trashed by the viewing public. We’ve compiled a short list of 5 shows that have stood the test of time and gained a pretty good following from their viewing audience. So, if you’re looking for some televised automotive entertainment then we’ve got the ticket for you.

1. Top Gear

Top Gear

Airing on the BBC and BBC America, Top Gear is without a doubt the best automotive show ever created. Its blend of humor, action and quirkiness meld together in a pot that just keeps the viewer stuck in front of the TV screen. Hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, the man with the biggest ego on the planet earth, Top Gear takes us into a realm of automotive hilarity that has not been duplicated. Co-hosts for the show are Richard Hammond aka, Hamster and James May aka, Captain Slow. The show is filled with ridiculous stunts, awesome exotic car hoonage, celebrity interviews and new car road tests. If you like cars, humor and carnage than look no further than Top Gear.

2. MotorWeek

Motor Week

Think of Motor Week as a televised automotive magazine. Hosted by all around regular guy John Davis, the series premiered in 1981 and has been going strong for almost 30 years. The reason for this is simple, it’s a no bullshit, honest car show filled with unbiased reviews and road tests of the newest cars on the market. If you looking for spills and thrills than this is not the show for you, if you want real world opinions than look no further.

3. Bullrun


Bullrun is an automotive reality show that premiered in March of 2007. Twelve teams from across the United State compete in a variety of automotive challenges in their own cars over the course of 4000 miles. Contestants battle severe road conditions, harsh competitors and the perils of the challenges, as they compete for $200,000 in cash and prizes. Hosted by former professional wrestler Bill Goldberg, Bullrun is the answer for those of us with a serious competitive nature.

4. Pinks All Out

Pinks All Out

A continuation of the series PINKS, PINKS ALL OUT is straight up drag racing with none of the bullshit negotiations that were featured in the original series. The show is simply “ok” in my opinion, but it’s a one stop shop if your thing is going fast in a straight line.

5. Overhaulin’


Take one unknowing “mark” with an unrestored classic car. Stage a theft of their vehicle, add in some fake cops and drama, then restore the car to better than new condition in seven days time and return to owner – this is Overhaulin’. Customizer extraordinaire Chip Foose and his team take care of the transformation and provide the owner with a new ride that has been completely overhauled.
