Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader Premieres Tonight

February 27, 2007 12:03 AM by Joe Reality

Class is in session with a new quiz show from Mark Burnett, hosted by
Jeff Foxworthy. Unlike the typical game show that measures
intelligence, ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? tests adults’ lack of
knowledge – as revealed by how much they’ve forgotten since elementary

Grownups will again find themselves in a classroom setting, revisiting their youth, as they tackle subjects they’ve already been taught, ranging from art to geography and math to social studies. However, the players are not alone. There is a way for contestants to “cheat” in this classroom.

The adults will have the opportunity to get some help from real grade-schoolers, who will offer what they think is the correct a-n-s-w-e-r on the series premiere of ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? Tuesday, Feb. 27 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

    HI.My name is kelley and I am 12
    as everyone would say how do you enter.I am trying to get my mom on she is really smart she is a nurse and was a straight “A” student when she was young.I am trying to enter my mom but I am not sure how just send me a message.
    but… “are you smarter then a 5th grader?” seems like a combination of a middle school question. not must 5th graders know the answers to the questions.I myself did not know the answer to the question:
    on the element table what does NA stand for?
    I thought it was natural gas or some thing like it but the correct answer was
    sodium my mom told me.
    so I thought if my mom entered she would win for sure^_^
