Top Gear Season 11 begins tonight in the US.
In the UK, Season 11 was last season, as they're now on Season 12. So, if you didn't already torrent it, or if you just enjoy the show and will watch it again, do enjoy 8pm EST on BBC America, when:

# Jeremy, Richard and James look at fuel economy. They find out how far five supercars can go on one gallon of petrol, the answer is not very, and Jeremy compares the Toyota Prius with the BMW M3 to show that driving style can make a big impact on how much fuel you use.
# The hosts are challenged to make their own police cars from old clunkers and put them to the test in a chase situation.
# Jeremy reviews the awesome lightweight Ferrari Scuderia.
# Comedians Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins are the Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.

In series 12 they finally get to put the Stig in the Veyron round their track. I won't tell you what time it did though.

4. Two weeks ago, I think.
I'd forgotten there was a show last night. I'd better check out the IPlayer!

8. Yay!
MG Jr. is looking for some new Top Gear. We have been watching season 12 online.

In other news, I am mega pissed that topgear.com/uk blocked their video clips to the U.S.! We were having fun rewatching some of the silly stuff from previous seasons as well as watching the extended clips from season 12.

9. Most of the good stuff is on Finalgear.com
Now that I've mastered the torrent thing, I've been enjoying a lot of the old stuff. I'm in Season 4 right now.

10. Oh, you can get those videos here?
I dropped in to Final Gear a little while ago but it seemed those vids weren't available to the U.S. (although I didn't check it out very thoroughly).
