Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader

Good Morning America
7 am/ET ABC
Water, water everywhere — that's where country fans can expect to hear "Water," the second single from Brad Paisley's new American Saturday Night CD, this summer. It shouldn't come as a surprise, seeing as how Paisley's coming off yet another No 1 hit with "Then" (his 10th No. 1 single in a row), not to mention two CMA awards last November and three CMT awards last month. And be very surprised if he doesn't play "Water" on this morning's GMA Central Park concert.

Read on for previews of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Degrassi: The Next Generation, The Goode Family and Mental. read more

ABC Shuttles Sliding Suburbia and So-So Goode to Fridays

Surviving Suburbia, The Goode Family

Surviving Suburbia is barely living up to its name. After performing tepidly in its first Tuesday-at-9:30 try-out and then getting sidelined for a week with the promise of a return to that time slot, the Bob Saget series is being relocated to Fridays, starting June 12.

Joining Suburbia for the move is its Tuesday lead-in, The Goode Family. The animated series has underperformed as well, collecting critical raspberries and mustering just 2.7 million viewers in its latest outing.

Filling the Tuesday gap in the coming week will be ... read more

Ratings: ABC's Wipeout Dunks Fox's Dance


How Wednesday's fresh fare fared:

8 pm/ET
CBS' George Strait concert special was the night's most watched program, averaging 10.6 million total viewers over its two-hour run. The Season 2 premiere of ABC's Wipeout, however, topped the 8 o'clock demos — So You Think You Can Dance included. With an audience of 8.64 million, Wipeout bested its Season 1 average and gave ABC its best numbers in the Wednesdays-at-8 slot since November 2007.

Fox's Dance tangoed with 8.58 mil in its two-hour Wednesday premiere.

9 pm
The premiere of ABC's The Goode Family wiped away 50 percent of Wipeout's audience, scoring just 3.93 mil. Lead-out Surviving Suburbia in turn hit a series-low 2.83 mil. Keep in mind, the fate of Bob Saget's new show will be decided by these "summer" numbers.

10 pm
ABC's soon-to-be unplugged The Unusuals hit an all-time low of 3.9 mil, lagging far behind Criminal Minds and Law & Order repeats.

George Strait: ACM Artist of the Decade All Star Concert
8 pm/ET CBS
The famously taciturn George Strait may not say a lot, but when he sings he speaks volumes. The Texas-born troubadour rode into Nashville on a song more than 25 years ago and is now the owner of an amazing 57 No. 1 singles on the country charts. It's no wonder the Academy of Country Music selected him as its artist of the decade, joining previous legends Marty Robbins (1960s), Loretta Lynn (1970s), Alabama (1980s) and Garth Brooks (1990s). Fortunately for Strait, he doesn't have to say much during tonight's all-star tribute. He gets to sit back and listen to a who's who of country artists literally sing his praises, such as Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Sugarland and Martina McBride.

Read on for previews of Wipeout, Great Performances, The Goode Family, Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns and E! True Hollywood Story's 10 Greatest Stories Ever Told. read more
