Jersey Joe and his friends play a round of the hit TV game show, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? Are these people smart enough to take the grand prize and win a round of the show?

This summer, FOX brought back their hit TV game show.  Hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, the show gives adult contestants the chance to answer questions from elementary school for a chance at a top prize of $1,000,000.   Contestants can use actual school children to guide them on their way to answering the 11 questions.

Players are also given 3 lifelines.  PEEK, where they can take a look at their student classmate’s answer, COPY, where they can copy their student classmate’s answer, and SAVE where if the contestant answers incorrectly – the classmate’s correct answer could save them.  Each can only be used once.

Once a contestant misses two questions, they FLUNK OUT of the game with $0.

Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader first premiered on February 27, 2007.  Full hour episodes aired on FOX in prime time until 2009.  A half hour condensed version was created for local stations that ran for two seasons from 2009-2011.  This summer, the full hour version returned to FOX.

A great game show and I’m glad that FOX has brought it back.  The ratings for the current prime time version are not as high as in the past.  If viewers do keep tuning in, the show will be back.  It’s up to you!
