Nickelodeon Revives “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader”

WWE star John Cena will host the second revival of the popular game show.

Adults will get a chance to again prove how much they’ve forgotten since grade school. Nickelodeon has announced a revival of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.  WWE star John Cena will host the new version. The revival is part of Nickelodeon’s attempt to lure kids back to the network with big stars and find programming their parents can watch along with them. Variety broke the story today.

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader first launched in 2007 on Fox. Jeff Foxworthy hosted both the network primetime version, which ran until 2009, and the daytime syndicated version from 2009 to 2011. Fox revived the show in 2014 but only lasted a few episodes before being cancelled.
