PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS

—WEEK OF OCTOBER 12—

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? - NEW EPISODES!
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy hosts this new, fast-paced half-hour syndicated version of the atypical game show that measures adults' lack of knowledge – as revealed by how much they've forgotten since grammar school. Grownups 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. In ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?, however, the players are not alone and there is a way for contestants to "cheat" in this classroom. The adults have the opportunity to get some help – in the form of elementary advice from real 5th graders who always seem to know more than the contestants. New episodes will air every night this week at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT, followed by a second episode airing at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT. Tuesday’s episode begins at 7:00 p.m., ET/PT with a second episode airing at 7:30 p.m., ET/PT.
