As if we couldn’t f-ing love science enough already, the educational Facebook page, I F-ing Love Science, is now under production into a new TV show that will premiere on Science Channel in the third quarter of this year.

The page, I F-ing Love Science, was created in March 2012 by British Biology student, Elise Andrews, and since its birth, the site has racked up over 10 million likes and counting. On her Editor’s blog for I F-ing Love Science, Andrews says “I’m on board as consulting producer, and will be contributing the editorial “voice” of the show to ensure it remains true to my vision.”

The new show will be hosted by star of the Late Late Show, Craig Ferguson, who, apparently, f-ing loves science too. He announced the news at Science Channel’s SXSW event in Austin, Texas saying, “Science has a naughty secret—it’s that 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 hundred pages deep until things get weird—and then you just keep going.” Sounds more like a science-themed Reddit feed to me. And it sounds awesome.

This may seem like a completely crazy and novel idea but we’ve already seen Internet phenoms go live before. For example, the debut of Sh*t My Dad Says in 2010, a CBS show inspired by a Twitter account. Indulging now in my severe online cat addiction, I’ll also point out that Internet sensation, Grumpy Cat, became signed on last year for a feature film. So, a TV show for I F-ing Love Science? I say F- yeah.
