Two quite iconic TV programs, sereis which inspires, enrages, encourages, mock and insults viewers, contsestents, audiences and celebtrities, they evoke fealings, they evoke outrage from vide spectrum of complainers, for vail language, outragious opinions, non-serious behaviour etc

two of my favourite entertaining TV programs, which do you like the most

I don't watch tv very often, but I do enjoy youtubing these two shows sometimes. But I have to give it to Top Gear, by quite a margin.

Top Gear is a mockery of its former self, and far better for it. I guess few here remembers the utter dullness of the Noel Edmond years:

My only criticism is they concentrate far too much on cars that few of us can even dream of owning - while Ferraris and Lambos are fun to look at and drool over, there will never be one parked on my drive. Ordinary cars have almost disapeared from the program, unless it is to ridicule them.

Top Gear.   Gordon Ramsay is a w**ker!  Clarkson is a w**ker but a likeable w**ker!  (Actually I've never watched KN)

I voted Kitchen Nightmares.  I love cooking and don't give a sh*t about cars (unless it's the one I'm driving).

We Americans also have some fetish for British people yelling and berating us (Ramsay, Morgon, Cowell, that lady from The Weakest Link).

By the way, the British KN is much calmer than the American one.  It's almost boring.  In the former, Ramsay is like, "Oh deary, the spinach they've got in the freezer has wilted.  I must speak to Dan about this."  In the latter, it's "OH MY GOD, Dan, you f**king MUPPET.  Your SPINACH HAS f**kING WILTED!  How do you expect to bring in any customers with crahp like thaht?  Get out of here you DONKEY.  Piss off!  Censored"

I'm not a fan of Ramsay as a TV personality but his latest no-nonsense (and no swearing) Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course (a rip-off of Jamie Oliver style programme like 30-Minute Meals) is very watchable and very informative, it's just a little disconcerting seeing him trying so hard to be "nice".

^ I like him in Gordans Great Escape,

Top Gear managed to make an automobile show more then being a show about outomobiles, its a show about being human, free and livving.

Top Gear, although I don't care about cars. I just like the (typical british) humor of, and between, the presenters.

Kitchen Nightmare, because it's only the TV Reality Show which arouses me.
