The first episode of The Grand Tour broke Amazon streaming & Prime membership records

"The first episode of The Grand Tour has become the biggest premiere on Amazon Prime, according to the streaming site.
Although it hasn't published its audience figures, Amazon says it has overtaken The Man in The High Castle, with millions of streams in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan.
"The guys are back, doing what they do best," says Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
"The chemistry between Jeremy, Richard and James is what makes The Grand Tour so entertaining."
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May originally presented Top Gear on the BBC, before parting ways with the organisation.
As well as bringing record audiences, Amazon says the day The Grand Tour was released, new Prime membership sign-ups exceeded all previous days, with the exception of their promotional Prime Day."
