Some will say it’s the power of the web. Others will say it’s just another network amendment. Either way, Channel TEN is no longer screening the American version of Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?
At least not on November 20th it isn’t. Any further than that and we’ll just have to wait and see.
When TV Tonight ran the news just three days ago, it wasn’t in very complimentary terms. Readers agreed that the idea to follow the Rove-hosted series with the American version was a baffling choice.
Maybe Programmers heard and reacted, who knows?
Instead it will screen Forbes 20 Under 25: Young, Rich and Famous at 7:30pm on Thursday November 20th. The 2007 Forbes Under 25 list put NBA player LeBron James ahead of NFL’s Reggie Bush, Maria Sharapova and golfer Michelle Wie. Others included the Olsen sisters, Daniel Radcliffe and Miley Cyrus.
We’ll have to wait and see if the Jeff Foxworthy-edition of Fifth Grader surfaces elsewhere.
A few months ago when TEN dropped Burn Notice, fan sites were flooded with complaints, leading to a network backflip the same day.
Keep venting your opinions guys, it may slowly be having some effect!
