ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? - ALL NEW WWE 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 WWE wrestlers are featured as contestants during the 8:00 p.m., ET/PT block (7:00 p.m. ET/PT on Tuesday).
