Validation on getting rid of cable:
Fox announced Saturday that it is making a new game show, “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” that will air sometime later this year, perhaps as early as the spring.
Adults will compete in a quiz based on questions from elementary school textbooks. Actual elementary school students will be on hand as “experts” for the adults to consult with.
“While most game shows measure how smart you are, this is a show that will measure how dumb you are,” said Peter Liguori, Fox entertainment president.
