Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader

FOX is bringing back the popular and critically praised quiz show ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? for another season on FOX. Executive-produced by Mark Burnett, the show features comedian Jeff Foxworthy, who returns as host.

“ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? shares so much DNA with the FOX brand that it feels only natural to return it to the schedule – it’s smart, witty, irreverent and it turns the adult/child power dynamic upside-down,” said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Fox Broadcasting Company. “All of the core components of the classic format will be there, but we are also adding new twists that make it fresher and more fun for viewers.”

NBC Orders More 'Marry Me'

Marry Me - Season 1

It looks like fans will be able to continue their courtship with the NBC series Marry Me. According to Variety, the network has ordered five additional episodes of the freshman comedy which brings its total to eighteen episodes.

The series premiered strong with a 2.3 in the 18-49 demo and 7.8 million viewers in live-plus-same day numbers. In subsequent weeks the show has dropped in the ratings, but is still the #2 comedy in the 18-49 demo for freshman broadcast comedies.

Although its not a complete back nine order, it is a positive sign for the comedy. The series follows what happens to longtime couple – high-strung Annie (Casey Wilson) and easy-going Jake (Ken Marino) – when their deeply committed relationship turns into a long and bumpy ride on the way to the altar after the question of "Will You Marry Me?" is popped.

The series was created by David Caspe who also created the short lived series Happy Endings which also starred Casey Wilson.

Lifetime Cancels 'Witches Of East End'

SeasonPromo6

After a thrilling season two finale that would have setup a great premiere for season three, Lifetime has decided to cancel Witches of East End after two seasons.

Witches of East End was based on the book of the same name by Melissa de la Cruz. The series starred Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Rachel Boston and Madchen Amick as a family of witches living and dealing with their powers and trying to keep those powers from being discovered.

"Thank you to everyone who went on this extraordinary journey with us," Boston tweeted after the cancellation news. "Your love, kindness, and support is forever magic."

Although the series had a strong social media presence, that didn't translate to viewers. Season one of the supernatural series averaged 1.67 viewers and in season two, that number dropped to 1.13 million viewers.
