Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader: BuddyTV Fall 2007 Preview
Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader: BuddyTV Fall 2007 Preview
Premiere Date and Time: Thursday, September 6, 8pm

Network: FOX

Time Slot Competition: Ugly Betty, My Name is Earl and 30 Rock, Survivor, Smallville

Host: Jeff Foxworthy

Jeff Foxworthy (Blue Collar Comedy Tour) hosts Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, an ode to memory loss in the form of a prime-time game show.  Contestants play with and against fifth graders in a simple, Who Wants to be a Millionaire-esque trivia game.  The show debuted in the second half of last season to huge ratings, mostly thanks to its lead-in, American Idol.  However, when left on its own, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader performed well enough to receive a second season from FOX.

The biggest news for the show is that, in November, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader will play host to a celebrity edition.  Regis Philbin will show up, most likely to scream at the kids.  And, to continue the American Idol support that helped launched this show up, former contestants Clay Aiken and Kellie Pickler will also see if they are smarter than a fifth grader.  If what we saw on American Idol wasn't an act, I think we all know the answer when it comes to Pickler.
