Congrats QI - your new website is the Website of the Fortnight in our new issue: Jumping jubilations!
loving all the ladies on this series of . cc
QI is always enjoyable but this series seems disorganised. Too many people talking over each other so it's inaudible.
So, punctuation fans, if the Kelloggs hadn't fallen out we'd be eating Kelloggs' rather than Kellogg's.

Wonderful QI tonight. Sue Perkins is a gem! Liza tarbuck is way cool and the ever delightful Jo Brand. Alan wins????
What happened to the nice quotes to round out the show?
What’s happened to General Ignorance?

It’s great to see more women on QI the last couple of series!
Is this a UK TV first? A comedy panel show where the women outnumber the men? Well done either way! More, more!

"Was it a car or a cat I saw?" is "Was it a car or a cat I saw?" Awesome palindrome!

Time to catch up QI, I think. New season with the letter 'J'. It's Sesame Street for smart people.
Impressed on the new QI to see the quick-witted elves researched "Aztecs worshipping jack rabbits" during the recording.
OMG (circa 1917) Victoria Coren has weird predictive powers (well done the elves for some speedy googlin' I say!)

Haha! This is hilarious, is everything beginning with J going to lead to something naughty?
I genuinely hope I get famous, just to go on . !
oh hell is killing me. It's completely filthy
QI has got wonderfully low brow tonight. It's good to see that even the most intelligent people can find boob puns funny.
I'm getting tons of tweets intended for and I don't mind it one bit.
Only on QI would they be talking about Jizz. (On a bird, obviously)
Got some on to educate myself a little. By memorising everything, in the future I can astound my friends with my vast knowledge.
QI is officially responsible for causing my mother to keep shouting "jizz!" at the television...
