DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS STAR ON A SPECIAL TWO-HOUR EDITION OF "ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?" THURSDAY, JANUARY 24, ON FOX

As the New England Patriots and New York Giants have passed the test and graduated to Super Bowl XLII, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are headed back to the classroom for a stellar appearance on a special two-hour episode of ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER? Thursday, Jan. 24 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
The pretty pom-pommers will surprise a contestant, who is a Dallas Cowboys fan and paramedic from Sunland, CA, and will help him tackle questions about elementary subjects. When this special edition of the A+ quiz show kicks off, the contestant will have the option of teaming with the 5th Grade whiz-kids or huddling with the spirited cheerleaders. Will the cowgirls' beauty be a distraction or do they have the smarts to prevent this contestant from fumbling when he faces questions such as:
Acclaimed comedian Jeff Foxworthy is at the head of the class as host of this atypical game show, which measures adults' lack of knowledge - as revealed by how much they've forgotten since grammar school. Adult contestants find themselves revisiting their youth in a classroom setting, tackling subjects they've already been taught - from art to geography and math to social studies. When test questions derived from actual textbooks used in the 1st through 5th grades prove to be challenging, contestants are not alone; there is a way to "cheat" in this classroom. Adults can get some elementary help by using a "peek," "copy" or "save" from actual 5th grade classmates to determine the correct a-n-s-w-e-r and graduate toward the top prize of $1 million.
