HOT FROM FOX...

CLASS IS IN SESSION TWICE A WEEK WHEN "ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?" AIRS ON THURSDAYS AND FRIDAYS FOR FOUR WEEKS THIS FALL

Sophomore Season Premieres Sept. 6 with Two-Hour Special

Just as students return to the classroom, FOX is scheduling additional classes of the A+ quiz show ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? with four original one-hour episodes airing Fridays, Sept.14, Sept. 21, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Following a special two-hour second season premiere on Thursday, Sept. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), all-new episodes will air Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Acclaimed comedian Jeff Foxworthy is at the head of the class as host of this atypical game show, which measures adults' lack of knowledge � as revealed by how much they've forgotten since grammar school. This fall, the show will enroll a new class of 5th graders chosen from a nationwide search. Adult contestants find themselves revisiting their youth in a classroom setting, tackling subjects they've already been taught � from art to geography and math to social studies. When test questions derived from actual textbooks used in the 1st through 5th grades prove to be challenging, contestants are not alone; there is a way to "cheat" in this classroom. Adults can get some elementary help by using a "peek," "copy" or "save" from actual 5th grade classmates to determine the correct a-n-s-w-e-r and graduate toward the top prize of $1 million.

Mark Burnett Productions produces ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? in association with ZOO Productions. Burnett, Roy Bank, Barry Poznick and John Stevens serve as executive producers.
