‘Cash Cab’, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’, and 2 Other TV Shows Set in Cars
Forget filming a show on, you know, a TV set. These days the entertainment industry is hitting the road, taking cameras inside cars. Ahead, check out four TV shows set in cars and learn how to watch them.
1. ‘Cash Cab’
The OG of TV shows set in cars is none other than Cash Cab. The game show on wheels premiered in 2005 on the Discovery Channel before going off the air in 2012. Contestants earned money every time they answered general knowledge questions correctly while host and licensed cab driver, Ben Bailey, drove them to their destination.
When Cash Cab returned in 2017, Bailey joked the late-night talk show host, James Corden, owes him everything he’s ever earned from his popular segment, “Carpool Karaoke,” which features him singing in cars with musicians.
Reruns of Cash Cab can be seen on the Game Show Network and Bravo. A handful of episodes from Season 13 are also available to watch on Hulu.
2. ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’
Jerry Seinfeld is the creator, executive producer, and host of the Netflix original series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Premiering in 2012, the program follows Seinfeld as he picks up a fellow comedian in a unique car and they proceed to chat and drink coffee.
Watch every season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee on Netflix and see Seinfeld get coffee with comedians such as Eddie Murphy, former President Barack Obama, and his Seinfeld co-stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards. No surprise here but the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee featuring Seinfeld cast members are some of the top-ranked episodes of the show.
3. ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’
Not 100% set in cars, Jay Leno’s Garage is all about the former late-night talk show host’s love of cars. In the series, he’s often seen driving a car from his personal collection. When he’s not behind the wheel of one of his cars, Leno’s meeting up with celebrities to take a look under the hood of their vehicles.
Debuting in 2015, Jay Leno’s Garage airs on CNBC but episodes are also available on the show’s YouTube channel.
4. ‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series’
“Carpool Karaoke” became such a popular segment on Corden’s talk show, Apple made it a stand-alone program on its streaming service. The debut episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series starred Corden and actor Will Smith.
Watch Carpool Karaoke: The Series with a subscription to Apple TV or see Corden continue the original segment on his talk show, The Late Late Show with James Corden. Clips from both the talk show and the original series can be found on YouTube.
