Fox Orders More ‘Fifth Grader’ Variety

Fox has ordered nine additional episodes of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?,” bringing the game show’s fall season to 22 episodes, Daily Variety reports. Ratings for the series have declined since its strong February 2007 premiere, the newspaper says. Zoo Productions, which co-produces “5th Grader,” also announced that MTV has ordered 20 episodes of “Busted,” while truTV has ordered 26 episodes of “Speeders” and 13 episodes of “Speeders Fight Back,” the newspaper notes.
