Car Talk Brothers Debut Tonight on PBS 'Toon


Tom and Ray Magliozzi, the goofy, talkative brothers of "Car Talk," are bringing their act to a PBS animated series, "As the Wrench Turns." Taking on their not-so-disguised alter egos of Click and Clack, the brothers tackle broken cars, grumpy customers and every manner of distracting argument and self-deprecating joke.

The series, which premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET, will mirror their popular NPR series, and although the name of their garage in the show is Car Talk Plaza, it will strongly resemble their real-life digs in Cambridgeport, Mass.

Check out the show tonight and let us know what you think in the comment section.

Painfully bad. They barely talk about cars and instead do really bad sitcom setups based on politics.

This show is DOA.
