QI, an abbreviation for "Quite Interesting," is a British television show in the form of a comedic quiz panel show. Each episode is hosted by Stephen Fry and has four panelists, breaking down between permanent member Alan Davies and three others that change each episode but all have comedy or acting backgrounds.

Unlike most quiz shows, the questions asked on QI are intentionally obscure, such as "where are the taste buds on a catfish?" In compensation of this, points are awarded to whoever gives the most interesting answer, regardless of whether he or she gave the correct answer. Inversely, points are deducted when answers, considered to be "pathetically obvious" or an obvious joke, are given. Such answers are considered forfeits, with an accompanying array of loud noises and bright lights to further humiliate the panelist. Furthermore, some shows have awarded or removed additional points for completing show-specific challenges.

QI's first season began in 2003, with the season name of A. Each 11-episode season since then has been titled after a subsequent letter of the alphabet. In addition to the initial format, QI also has several extra-long episodes, known as QI XL, as well as compilation clip episodes, known as QI VG.
