Rating the Ratings: Fox revived its late-aughts game show Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? as one of many attempts to reinvigorate the summer sked, but it was just another disappointment in that pursuit. It could only muster up a 0.8 on premiere night and eventually trickled down to 0.6ish for most of the second half of the run. I don't give it an F simply because the show had already gotten into this Plus area by the end of its original run, so it's not like this level was completely uncharted territory. But it's still a real disappointment that it couldn't garner any real nostalgia interest at all. Grade: D.
