The British car show Top Gear returns to television for its nineteenth season. For years, Top Gear has been the best watched show on BBC 2, but has also gained popularity outside the UK. The nineteenth season was supposed to be released in the fall of 2012, but was postponed by the BBC. According to the British press, the delay had to do with the competition of the British X- Factor talent show. Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson said there will be a Christmas Special in 2012.
