Saturday Night Live hadn't touched "Jeopardy!" since Will Ferrell's outstanding work as the sketch game show's host. They revisited the skit again but made one modification to the old hilarious format. This time, the game show's theme was Black.

Instead of the host being Alex Trebek, this week's skit was conducted by an improvised character, Alex TreBlack, and the show was renamed "Black Jeopardy." The only thing bringing down the show's theme was a white contestant (played by Louis CK), who teaches African subjects at Brigham Young University.

With the white contestant's presence and categories such as "Rap Terms that Start with ā€˜Nā€™", things were bound to get awkward, and they did.

Even without Ferrell, the segment was amazing, and it owes everything to its Black theme.
