Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Probably not.

See Slate's piece on Fox's humiliating new quiz show, Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? My wife and I watched the first show where a UCLA grad failed miserably.

If the game gets too tough the contestant is allowed to cheat by peeking at one of the 5th grader's papers, copying from them, or simply being "saved" by his partner's correct answer. The UCLA grad left in disgrace only getting away with the money earned for him by the tykes.
