ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? - ENCORE PRESENTATION OF SOAPS 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. Episodes air weeknights beginning at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT (7:00 p.m. ET/PT on Tuesday).

GATOR 911 - ALL NEW EPISODE!

The second episode proves that smaller gators are no easier to predict, as the team heads to a drainage pipe to rescue Tracy (a 6’4”, 64 lb gator) and a private eight-acre pond to capture Mozell (a 5’8” and 56 lb gator). Then the team heads to the unlikely location of a cowboy church restroom, where they find Lou (a 6’1”, 64 lb gator) who needs to be rescued.

The woman is on a boat in a crowded recreation area and the firefighters have to be careful during the transfer to Fireboat 1, where one false move could be disastrous. Another crew faces their biggest challenge yet when they are called to battle an explosive fire on a freighter over 200 feet long. And four men face death when their fishing boat capsizes, pulling them miles out to sea in over a thousand feet of water.
