Betcha Fox's failed reality show Utopia is looking pretty good right about now.
Hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, the quiz show tests adults' knowledge — or lack thereof — about subjects such as geography, math and social studies. The questions are derived from actual textbooks used to teach 1st through 5th grade.
"Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? shares so much DNA with the Fox brand that it feels only natural to return it to the schedule — it's smart, witty, irreverent and it turns the adult/child power dynamic upside-down," Fox's Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming, Simon Andreae, said in a statement. "All of the core components of the classic format will be there, but we are also adding new twists that make it fresher and more fun for viewers."
Added executive producer Mark Burnett: "I have loved this competition from our first show and the timing couldn't be better for 5th Grader to return to Fox, as there is nothing like it on television. Kids today are smarter than ever and the adults who try to take them on will have an even harder task ahead of them."
Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? originally ran on Fox from 2007 to 2009, and continued in syndication for two more years.
