ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? - ENCORE PRESENTATION OF CELEBRITY & MUPPETS 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 special-guest celebrities are featured as contestants during the 8:00 p.m., ET/PT block (7:00 p.m. ET/PT on Tuesday) and Muppet characters are featured as contestants during the 8:30 p.m., ET/PT block (7:30 p.m., ET/PT on Tuesday)!

One crew gets the call to help a boy who has dislocated his elbow in a boating accident in one of the busiest channels in South Florida. Another crew responds to a call for a heart attack victim and must battle harsh sea conditions to save him. However, not all victims take the hazards of boating seriously, and one man thinks laughter is the best medicine when he slices his leg open on a propeller.

Catch the season premiere of DANGER COAST on Friday, April 9, at 9:30 p.m., ET/PT.
