PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS

—WEEK OF DECEMBER 21—

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? - ENCORE PRESENTATION OF EXPECTANT MOTHERS WEEK!
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. Don’t miss this week as expectant mothers are featured as special guests on the show. 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.

WORLD’S STRICTEST PARENTS - ALL NEW EPISODE!
WORLD’S STRICTEST PARENTS, a CMT original series, will document the journey of unruly teens from different families as they are forced to adapt to the rules and regulations of very strict host parents. Living under different standards from their families back home, the misbehaving teens will be subject to punishment for breaking rules and skipping chores while the strict parents attempt to mend their ways. This all-new episode of WORLD'S STRICTEST PARENTS follows teens Anthony and Sierra as they head to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to stay with the Smidt family. The Smidt's believe that rural living promotes a good work ethic for teenagers. With 11 acres of land, three horses and countless chickens, everyone is expected to pull their weight. Parents Jim and Sherene replaced their children’s cable TV, high speed internet, and cell phones with wood chopping duty and the responsibility of taking care of the land and cleaning up after the animals. When they take in Anthony and Sierra, two disrespectful teenagers who refuse to take orders from anyone, it will be a clash of rigid rules and reluctant teens. This all-new episode of WORLD’S STRICTEST PARENTS airs Saturday, January 2 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
