Nickelodeon’s new "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader" follows the original premise of adult contestants putting their knowledge to the test by answering questions taken directly from elementary school curriculum. New game elements will be added to the show, including an additional “cheat” option, new ways contestants can enlist the help of their grade-school classmates, as well as a “final exam,” where contestants must answer a question from each grade in a race against the clock.
