I F-ing Love Science, Based on Facebook Page, Coming to TV

Comedian and TV host Craig Ferguson will produce a TV series based on the popular Facebook page, I F-ing Love Science.

Set to premiere on Science Channel in the fourth quarter of 2014, I F-ing Love Science, produced by Craig Ferguson, will seek to capture the same popularity among TV viewers as it has among Facebook users. Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, made the announcement via video Saturday at South by Southwest in Austin. The show will consist of 60-minute episodes that will attempt to probe a "grand, outlandish thesis" using science.

"If you know anything about me, you know I love science," Ferguson said. "Science has a naughty secret - it's that all things are connected. And this show is going to explore the randomness of science. Think of it as a late night Google search that goes a hundred pages deep until things get weird - and then you just keep going. And there is no better partner for this kind of smart entertainment like Science Channel and Elise."

British biology student Elise Andrews created the 'I F-ing Love Science' Facebook page in March 2012. Featuring science-related photos, news, and cartoons, the page has since garnered more than 10 million likes. Prominently displayed in the Facebook page's cover image is a quote by Isaac Asimov:

"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'eureka!' but 'that's funny...'"

So... Ferguson will spring board off of Elise's work, presenting a show thats different from the page and lacks Elise herself? Ok then.

In case you need a crash course in Craig Ferguson

I like that creepy Scotsman and his gay robot sidekick. I'm excited!

Half the time, that Facebook page doesn't even post science-related stuff, and on more than one occasion, has gotten it flat-out wrong?

I shouldn't be surprised that it's coming to TV.

new Cosmos, Live show broadcast from the ISS, government backed mission to Europa, and now I F-ing Love Science show Produced by Craig. Hurray for science.

Meanwhile, Ken Ham is building a Noah's Ark theme park with an actual ark. Silly old sausage.

I think my favorites were the eulogy to his mother and the Britney Spears monologue. He's one of the best talk show hosts ever. Such a natural conversationalist.

Notice how most of these are from older episodes of his show. I think he did his best work years ago, but when he's good, he's absolutely incredible. I still count myself as a fan of his just based on these episodes. Still, whenever he just turns to the camera and just talks honestly, it's incredible. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIVLi9oIC3k

I'm actually pretty excited about this, considering how often Craig brings on science related guests on his show. This should be good.
