Stop wasting your time on Top Gear and watch Season 2 of Jay Leno’s Garage on June 15

With the new Top Gear not exactly overjoying the auto enthusiast community, it’s a good thing there’s an alternative coming out soon. Instead of suffering through the tension between Matt LeBlanc and Chris Evans, car lovers can tune into “Jay Leno’s Garage”, which returns for a second season on Wednesday, June 15 at 10PM ET/PT.

We got a sneak peek at the first episode and it’s a fast-paced close-up on supercars, one of 12 topics that they’ll highlight during each one-hour episode. Jay Leno, being a celebrity himself, does well to connect with other celebrity guests over their shared passion for cars. It’s not as in-depth as a Cars & Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld, and it’s not as competitive and outrageous as (the original) Top Gear. But Jay Leno’s Garage is a clean, interesting and fun show to watch as a family — whether you have resident gear heads or not.

In the season premiere, I was pleased that Jay included my personal dream car, the Porsche Carrera GT, and a spotlight on Michelle Christensen, who’s the design project leader for the all-new Acura NSX. He also gets some seat time inside Robert Herjavec’s (ABC’s Shark Tank) iconic Lamborghini Countach, cruises the strip in Nick Cannon’s Ferrari California, and tests comedian Alonzo Bodden’s car knowledge.

Later in the season, viewers can expect to see cameos from Jerry Seinfeld, Patrick Dempsey (aka “McDreamy”), Tim Allen, Dan Aykroy, and more.

Tune into CNBC on Wednesday, June 15 at 10PM and tweet us your reaction: Do you like Jay Leno’s Garage better than the new Top Gear?
