Facebook’s ‘I F***ing Love Science’ To Become A Discovery Channel Show

The million Facebook fans for “I F***ing Love Science” will be able to view irreverent and unabashedly pro-science content in a new way, as the Discovery Channel has teamed up with the popular and naughtily named page to create a new web program.

Over on Facebook, 6,679,716 people are fans of the “I F***ing Love Science” page, sharing and commenting on the content despite a still tense atmosphere on Facebook in general over the F-word.

It’s kind of a testament to a passionate love of science that so many Facebookers proudly love the page, and science, expletives notwithstanding. (A second, language safe page called “Science Is Awesome” has been added for timid Facebookers who… just really love science?)

According to Variety, IFLS (as it is often called by language-shy fans) is coming to the web in video form, and the paper reports:

“Discovery announced a pact with the British creator of Facebook page ‘I F***ing Love Science,’ Elise Andrew, to host regular video segments on media company’s TestTube online network and Science Channel. In Discovery’s usage, the IFLS title is represented with asterisks or other characters obscuring the actual word.”

Politeness aside, even the most presentable science fans have been moved by the study of the world and all things in it to embrace the page’s profane title — even Neil DeGrasse Tyson got in on it in the clip below, audio clearly NSFW:
