After a hugely sucessful first two series, the Swedish version of QI, known as Interesseklubben, or 'The Interesting Club' returns to SVT for a third series on all things beginning with C.
In an effort to expand QI's estimable reach, members of the QI.com talk forum have started a petition to bring the show to the discriminating spectators in the United States, one of the largest media audiences in the world. The petition asks BBC America, owned and operated by BBC World, to broadcast the show to US viewers.
The move is not unprecedented – a similar petition was powerful enough to persuade the BBC to release the DVD of the A Series. We hope that the show's success, coupled with a solid affirmation from its fans about spreading the word overseas, will show the BBC that it's really too good an opportunity to miss.
