    Just saw a commercial for "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?"

    Adults test their knowledge (I'm guessing badly or this wouldn't be much of a show) against ... yeah 5th graders.

    We've sprinted past acting like savages on Survivor, eating pig penis on Fear Factor and Flavor Flav as Romeo. Now we're being thrown 'you're dumberer than this edukated kid ... HA HA! - point, giggle. But don't realize how disturbing this really is and what a reflection this will be on the good ole US and A in the eyes of the world.

    Cue Lee Greenwood ...

    Discuss ... cry ... hang head in shame.

    You guessed it, brought to by the fine folks at Fox.

    When the hell is FOX bringing back Beauty and the Geek?

    Geek: "If you were a red state or a blue state, which would you be?"

    Hotbox: "Well, I'm from the California, which is the Golden State!"

    Geek, rolling his eyes after hotbox exits stage right: "I do NOT want her"

    Tim Hardaway wants to make sure he is included in any 'devolution' discussion. :)

    I think that's WB. And I think it's on already.

    I can think of several SportsJournalists.commers who could compete on this show. And lose.

    1 v. 100 just had a game where an adult went against a panel of 100 kids. One of them had started his own business making customer pencil erasers, and I think they had a national spelling bee winner on there. I wonder if Foxworthy was watching this thinking, "you know, we could make a whole show out of that."
