I watched the first epiosode of the TV show and can't say I was
impressed enough to watch again.
However, I am on their email list for the weekly Car Talk "Puzzler"
quiz, and one of my sons and I enjoy seeing which of us can come up with
the correct answers to those questions first.
Click and Clack were the 1999 commencement speakers at my alma mater,
quite an honor to bestow upon them:
No idea. However, Click and Clack are on now, and they adressed the show
as letter from someone who had watched it. The writer mentioned that the
Marx brothers once made a terrible movie "The Big Store" so they would
have money to rescue Chico from gambling debts. The writer went on to ask
which of the two Click and Clack brothers had the gambling debt. C&C
didn't adress the quality of their show, though.
It sounds like a case of hoping their celebrity would carry the show, and
there was no need (as another poster mentions) of having good writers and
a director who can throw the bad stuff away.

This is the second time someone has tried to translate Car Talk to
television. Anyone else remember "The George Wendt Show" from 1995?
He played one of two brothers who were mechanics and hosts of a radio
show. You wouldn't have known that from watching it, though. It was
absolutely terrible, and only lasted seven episodes.
