Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? by Michael Yarish/Fox Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? by Michael Yarish/Fox

After Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? returns with a two-hour special on Sept. 6, the quiz show will air twice a week for a month. So besides new episodes every Friday, there will also episodes on Thursdays throughout September.

However, I suspect that if you asked even a 4th grader, they'd tell you this smacks of overkill. (Does no one remember the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire phenom?)
