Does the first season of the Genius Junior TV show on NBC get it just right? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Genius Junior is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we’d like to offer you the chance to rate all of the Genius Junior season one episodes here.
An NBC TV game show featuring contestants between the ages of eight and 12, Genius Junior is hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. The TV series showcases incredibly bright children facing off against each other and the clock. As the game unfolds, they compete to solve increasingly difficult quizzes. Subjects range from geography, math, and spelling, to feats of memory, and more. At the end of each episode, that week’s winning team gets to face “The Cortex,” a tough intelligence test which provides the players with the opportunity to build up their prize fund. The winning team leaves with a “Genius Junior” grant, to help them prepare for their future.
