GSN Graduates With 'Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?'

Publish date:

GSN (Game Show Network) made its second big announcement in as many days as it has secured rights to the former Fox network game show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?

GSN will air 90 episodes of the Twentieth Television series, produced by Mark Burnett beginning Nov. 6, according to network officials.

Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, in which adults attempt to answer elementary school questions, will air in five-hour blocks on Sunday nights from 7 p.m. to midnight.

The announcement follows on the heels of the network's appointment of former Lifetime, Oxygen and Bravo programming executive Amy Introcaso-Davis as executive vice president of programming.

Introcaso-Davis, who will report to GSN president & CEO David Goldhill, will be responsible for developing and acquiring programming designed to grow GSN's core audience of adult females, according to officials.
