That's what I thought! Bring it on! Would love it if they did this from here on in.

Indeed. However, it should be pointed out that the order of episodes is still not known, and we don't know as of yet if the extended repeats will continued.

Actually, the plan is to broadcast the first five episodes (the 2009 ones) on Thursdays at 9.30, and the other eleven (the 2010 ones) on Fridays at 8.30. It seems odd to me to broadcast the show before the watershed.

According to Broadcast, the plan appears to be a ratings battle between QI and one other show against The Bill. At the moment, the show going up against The Bill is New Tricks.

Ooh, QI pre-watershed! Think that's an excellent idea. It's a programme the whole family should watch. Give "der kidz" a taste for acquiring knowledge. Possibly. :)

They should remove the quiz format completely and just have Stephen Fry sat by a log fire, wearing only a smoking jacket, with a pipe in one hand and a QI Encyclopedia in the other.

Half way through, have someone like Alan Davies or Bill Bailey enter, discuss one of the QI facts, make a humourous comment and leave.

At the end, as the credits roll, the invited guest from earlier should return, and wrestle Stephen in front of the fire place Women In Love style.

Unlikely, only the first three series have come out. I'm trying to get the others out as well using a petition. It currently has over 400 signatures.
