Are our American idols smarter than a 5th grader? We'll soon find out as Clay Aiken and Kellie Pickler are among the celebrity contestants to compete on "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" during the November sweeps period.
"Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" is an American quiz game show on FOX which games are played by a single contestant, who attempts to answer ten questions plus a final bonus question.
