Top Gear Snags Guinness Record For Being World's Most Widely Watched Factual Show
20 September 2012 - Autoblog
It's official: Top Gear has collected a Guinness World Record. Everyone's favorite show about three jokers and their automotive exploits is the most widely watched factual TV program – you guessed it – in the world.
All told, the original show is viewed in 212 territories around the globe, which is enough to take the honor. Jeremy Clarkson himself accepted the award on behalf of his cohorts and the crew behind Top Gear, saying only, "I am very proud to be involved in such a factual program."
Is that a hint of sarcasm we detect, sir?
The show certainly isn't lacking for fans with a Facebook page boasting over 12.1 million likes and counting.
