Nickelodeon is bringing back “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” with new host John Cena, who will also executive produce.
The original game show was hosted by stand-up comedian Jeff Foxworthy and aired on the Fox broadcast network. “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” was created by Mark Burnett and hails from MGM.
The format of “5th Grader,” which has been adapted in several countries, sees adult contestants answer questions as if they came from an elementary grade school quiz. There were actual (smart) fifth graders on stage to help out, or to make the adult look dumb — sometimes both.
The first “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” aired from 2007 to 2015, over which Foxworthy amassed 111 episodes. In 2010, the show was nominated for — but did not win — a Daytime Emmy Award.
Nick is dropping a ton of news this morning. The kids’ network is also planning several “SpongeBob SquarePants” spinoffs and reviving “All That” with original cast member and breakout star Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”) as executive producer. That sketch comedy show also expects to bring back other original cast members.
Additionally, Nickelodeon has acquired the rights to develop TV series based on Paddington Bear and the recent “LEGO” movies.

From Buddy Rogers to Brock Lesnar, here are all the guys from the old WWWF and WWF days — and beyond
Pro-wrestling championship belts change hands (or waists) like grapplers change trunks these days, though it wasn't always that way. Hell, sometimes it only takes five seconds to crown a new champion, which was the case on Fox's "Friday Night SmackDown" premiere when Brock Lesnar squashed Kofi Kingston.
Scroll through our gallery to see every WWE Champion ever, ranked by their numbers of title reigns. Remember: this is a list of those who won the WWWF Championship, the WWF Championship or the WWE Championship. So don't come after us, Universal Champions, et al.
