Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? | EW.com

TV

8-9 PM · FOX · Returns Sept. 6

Host Jeff Foxworthy knows a good idea when he hears it. ”I live in Atlanta,” says Foxworthy, ”and if I’m at the grocery store or the Home Depot, people come up to me and go, ‘I bet if you had a fifth-grade teacher they’d win the money.’ Or, ‘I bet if you had a Mensa guy they’d win the money.’ So we thought, Okay, we’ll do that this year. We’ll bring in the fifth-grade teachers, the Mensa members, the college professors — and so far we haven’t given away a million dollars yet.” Maybe the celebrities will have more luck when folks like Regis Philbin, Clay Aiken, Kellie Pickler, and Tony Hawk show up in November to try their hand at it.
