JYW is #1 on Yahoo Buzz List!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
It appears that concern over the new presenter/format has caused many of us to run to our computers and search for the "people in charge."
Confirming this is the fact that JYW topped the Yahoo "Buzz" list on January 5th with a rating of 254%, clocking the #2 topic, Victoria Principal at 111%. The Buzz factor is a rating that reflects the one-day increase in interest of a TV topic, based on Yahoo searches.
TLC was right there with the spin, though: "[...] strong audience reaction to the new series propels Junkyard Wars to the top of the Yahoo buzz television movers index."
Strong audience reaction? I'd say! :-)

I just want to make one little thing clear. Junkyard-Wars.com isn't a TLC site - it is run by me at RDF (Junkyard Wars' Production Company). I started doing it to help my colleagues when they were struggling to find applications for the first US series. It is a spare time project, which is why it isn't of the standard that lots of people seem to expect for a major TV program website.
When there are slightly toungue-in-cheek comments on the website (e.g. 'strong audience reaction') in is not TLC spin. It is just how I see it.

Perhaps one day it will be a yahoo buzz leader. Right now most of what see on there isn't interesting, mainly because it's exactly what you'd expect to see there.
