"QI" Will This Be The Next "Top Gear" To Be Imported To America?



Mary McNamara reviews something in the Los Angeles Times you can't even watch here in the US. But through a search of You Tube, Mary finds the next "Top Gear" for the endlessly curious US audience.

"QI," a comedy quiz show hosted by the redoubtable Stephen Fry (one of three or four living people who can accurately be described as redoubtable) is in its seventh season in Britain. As of yet, Americans must content themselves with watching broken bits via YouTube, though there were recent reports that Fry may be moving to Los Angeles, and one can only hope he'll bring "QI" with him, if only in reruns."
