Matt LeBlanc Signs On For More 'Top Gear'


LONDON (AP) — The BBC says former "Friends" star Matt LeBlanc has signed a two-series deal to host its popular car show "Top Gear." The broadcaster announced Monday that LeBlanc will front the program when it returns for a 24th series in 2017. LeBlanc was one of two hosts when "Top Gear" was relaunched in May after the loss of its longstanding team of presenters. A mix of humor, stunts and automotive advice, "Top Gear" became a global hit under presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
