Fans of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? will be glad to see its return on Nickelodeon at 6 p.m. Monday. The series originally aired on Fox and was hosted by Jeff Foxworthy. This time around the host is wrestling hero John Cena, who also serves as executive producer. New episodes will air at 6 p.m. June 17-19 before moving to its regular time slot at 6 p.m. June 24.
Joining Cena this season is a rotating cast of 12 brainy fifth-graders from around the country. In an all-new format, contestants will revisit the classroom to answer six questions on a variety of subjects from the first- through fourth-grade before moving on to the final round where they must race against the clock to answer five questions taken from the fifth-grade. Each time the contestants answer questions correctly, the bank increases with a possible winning of $100,000. Newly added to the show includes an additional "cheat" option and new ways contestants can enlist the help of their grade-school classmates.
Also returning this week is a brand-new version of its sketch comedy series All That. Along with a new young cast, the Jonas Brothers, and former cast members Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server, will appear in the debut episode.
The show premieres at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and is shot in front of a live studio audience. Each episode features original comedic sketches, old favorites, new characters and impersonations of today's popular celebrities, as well as a musical performances and appearances by guest stars from the world of TV and comedy.
