Presenter’s tweets make light of announcement that broadcast of show is to be suspended following allegations that he punched a producer

The Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has brushed off the BBC’s decision to pull the remaining episodes of his lucrative TV series amid allegations that he punched a producer in a dispute over catering.

In a series of tweets, the presenter made light of what the BBC described as a “fracas”, as executives at the broadcaster considered their next steps.

Sorry Ed. It seems I knocked your "I'm a human" piece down the news agenda.

@MrJamesMay No no no. Where Eagles Dare. Much better.

Jeremy Clarkson suspended by BBC over 'fracas' with Top Gear producer

Motoring show pulled from Sunday night schedules as BBC investigates claims controversial presenter threw punch at colleague

In the end it wasn’t Jeremy Clarkson’s racist, homophobic or sexist comments, but a “fracas” with a colleague that became the final straw for the BBC, long urged to punish its highest-paid star.

A tight-lipped corporation said on Tuesday it had suspended the controversial Top Gear presenter pending an investigation into his “fracas with a BBC producer” and, for the first time, it pulled the show from its schedule for the next two Sundays. Perhaps ominously for Clarkson, the statement said “no one else has been suspended”.

No Top Gear this weekend, apparently. How about 633 Squadron instead? @JeremyClarkson @RichardHammond

@MrJamesMay No no no. Where Eagles Dare. Much better.

@MrJamesMay @RichardHammond I did some pretty good war documentaries. They could screen one of those.

No, surely, Last of the Summer Wine; no one will notice the difference. »

Jeremy Clarkson has joked about what could replace Top Gear on TV at the weekend, following his suspension by the BBC.

The presenter was temporarily dropped from the channel after a "fracas" with a producer, with widespread reports suggesting that Clarkson allegedly aimed a punch at the co-worker.

Jeremy Clarkson: A list of people offended by the Top Gear star

An investigation is under way at the corporation and no-one else has been suspended over the incident. All three remaining episodes in the current series of Top Gear have reportedly been delayed.

Taking to Twitter hours after the news, Clarkson jested with his fellow Top Gear hosts that 1968 World War II movie Where Eagles Dare could replace it in the schedule.

James May first wrote: "No Top Gear this weekend, apparently. How about [the film] 633 Squadron instead?" to which Richard Hammond replied: "No, surely, Last of the Summer Wine; no one will notice the difference. »

Musings On The 87Th Annual Academy Awards

23 February 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Well, it's that time of year again when pundits everywhere weigh in on the merits (or lack thereof) of the previous evening's Oscar telecast.

Here are my random observations:

Host Neil Patrick Harris was affable and likable and worked like hell to put on a good show. But there lies the rub. Traditionally, Oscar hosts never had to be chosen for their ability to carry Busby Berkeley-like song and dance extravaganzas. Dear old Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope and Johnny Carson were simply there to keep the traffic flowing to the podium in between rattling off some memorable one-liners. Billy Crystal quashed that tradition with his ever-outrageous opening production numbers that razzed the Academy and some of the nominees. The idea should have been retired with him when he announced he would no longer host the event. Last evening's opening act was certainly opulent and contained some »
