Our Little Genius
Our Little Genius is a game show produced for the Fox network that was pulled before making it to air, hosted by Kevin Pollak. The program was slated to premiere on Fox on January 13, 2010, at 9:15 PM Eastern following American Idol with a special 45-minute episode, with further episodes being 60 minutes. However, the show was postponed on request by its creator and eventually canceled before any of its eight episodes aired due to two separate issues related to the show's integrity. Veteran reality show producer Mark Burnett ("Survivor") produces this game show in which children aged 6-12 try to answer increasingly difficult questions in their areas of expertise. The children's parents can stop the game at any time and walk away with the winnings to that point. But if the adults are gutsy enough to let their little ones answer enough questions, the tykes could win hundreds of thousands of dollars for their families.
