Fox's 5th Grader to Get Multiple Runs in the Fall
By Ben Grossman -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/1/2007 7:27:00 AM
Fox will push its successful game show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader to twice a week for four weeks beginning September 14.
The show is set to premiere Thursday, September 6, with a two-hour special in its 8 p.m. ET timeslot, before scaling back to its regular one hour the following week.
But beginning the following week, on Friday, September 14, Fox will also air the show at 8 p.m. on four consecutive Fridays.
Multiple original runs in the same week has become a common programming tactic for successful network game shows in recent years, such as NBC’s Deal or No Deal and ABC’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
The show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, is from Mark Burnett Productions.
