ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK: One of the reasons why the return of primetime "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" didn't return too well was the fact that contestant Veronica Lodge Flunked Out at the last possible moment when both she and Francesca (who was mentioned in the question itself) couldn't calculate the problem 6 X 4 + 3 correctly. Veronica said the answer was only 9 while Francesca was over with 33. It was 27.
