Foxworthy Signs on for Syndie ’5th Grader’

Sep 11, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Twentieth Television, along with Mark Burnett Productions and Zoo Productions, has finally landed “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” host Jeff Foxworthy to handle double duty as the series prepares for its launch as a daytime strip in 2009.
Multiple sources said Mr. Foxworthy has agreed to host the daytime version of the popular Fox prime-time show, which is being targeted for a fall 2009 launch. An announcement is expected in the coming days.
Twentieth locked in the deal with Mr. Burnett’s production company last month after a round of vigorous bidding among several distributors. Executives at Twentieth remained determined to continue Mr. Foxworthy’s affiliation with the show after finally landing rights to the series in August.
The series now will almost certainly move forward in the development process, according to company insiders, and sales meetings with stations are quickly moving forward.
“Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” becomes the second prime-time game show in two years to add a daytime element, joining NBC Universal’s “Deal or No Deal,” which debuted this week.
A representative for Twentieth Television confirmed the signing of Mr. Foxworthy.

  1. Greetings from Nova Scotia,Canada.
    I have this strange feeling and I don`t know why but would your show Smarter Than A Fifth Grader have anything to do with trying to make the world smile at Nova Scotia because I want to thank you for helping us make that a reality.
    Being Santa,GOD wanted me make sure that Christmas is a daily event not just a one day a year event so GOD asked me to send you a few brain teasers that “5 year olds” can read here in Nova Scotia and if a 5 year old in Nova Scotia can read them surely someone of your intelligence would be able to understand them and use them on your shows to make fun of people and situations you probably don`t know any more about than just stupid gossip.

    Yes Patricia There Is A Santa Claus===+++But says Santa he is dumber than a 5th grader and he lives in Nova Scotia and his favorite radio station is FX 101.9
    In case any artists who feel not inclined to contribute a royalty for songs and music and videos given to them by GOD and I,you might want to pass these 5th grader teases on to their lawyers.
    GOD also asked me to give you his address also for he also lives here once in a while also and checks his mail quite regularly as well. >>god@ns.sympatico.ca

  2. A Serious Note As Well JEOFF>REMEMBER!?
    P.S.>>>> Did you or any one make fun of your children when they were only in grade 5?
    Literacy is nothing to make fun of.It is one of the most serious problems that economic lives and dies on.Stupidity is laughed at and taken advantage of. Just ask unions,judges,lawyers,large corporate head executives and some others that others may mention as well.

  3. 5th Grader is great by itself, god damn it. Deal or No Deal was great and then syndication screwe it up. I love 5th Grader and I don’t want it to happen to them to and Jeff Foxworthy (love his redneck jokes).

  4. America>home of the free.
    Trade seems to have trouble understanding this.
    Mr.Barter has a few tricks up his sleeve.
    Do (demons and angels>ghosts)cast shadows?
    Time to find out how deceiving they are?!
    Size is everything?
    Just a freebee,so far!
    Mind a minute?

  5. Timing the union of organization has a chance if it is weak in laughter of the grey temptations that were too underestimated to resist and had to be released back into the wild where they have the last laugh for they are at home anywhere always all ways.
