After a Nearly 6-Year (!) Hiatus, Tonight Fox Brings Back Quiz Show

May 26, 2015  •  Post A Comment

“After nearly six years off, Fox brings [a] one-hour game show back for a 12-episode fourth season (premiering tonight, Tuesday, May 26, 2015, at 8 p.m. ET/PT),” reports the New York Post. The show is “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.”

Repeating as host is Jeff Foxworthy. He told the Post, “Out of everything I’ve ever done, people would come up to me in the grocery store or Home Depot and say, ‘They need to bring that “5th Grader” show back,’ ” says Foxworthy, who made a name for himself as a stand-up on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour.”

The Post adds: “Producers made some updates to the rebooted version, like adding ‘The Grade School Give Away,’ where contestants who reach the $10,000 level can compete for a school in need to win a matching amount. There’s also a new ‘cheat’ — where the child at the answer podium can confer with the rest of the classroom for help.”
