“Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” is a game show hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy and produced by Mark Burnett (“Survivor”) and ZOO Productions. It measures adults’ lack of knowledge, as revealed by how much they’ve forgotten since grammar school. Grown-ups find themselves in a classroom setting, revisiting their youth, as they tackle subjects they were taught years ago ranging from art to geography and math to social studies.
The adults do get some help — in the form of real fifth graders who provide advice, and often seem to know more than the contestants.
New episodes of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” are scheduled to broadcast in September. In the Los Angeles-O.C. area, the show will air five days a week on Fox/channel 11 and Tuesday nights on My Network TV/channel 13.
