IT Crowd to return for a third season!

Wonderful news: Channel Four have picked up The IT Crowd (my favorite geek TV show!) for a third season! It must be because Graham "Father Ted" Linehan, the show's creator, has just been named one of the world's greatest living geniuses by the Creators Synectics ("a global consultants firm").
The IT Crowd, sketch show Modern Toss and Peep Show will also return.
