Louis C.K. Is Going On ‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ To Battle Political Pundits

Something truly wonderful is going to happen on Jeopardy! in late May. “Wait a minute,” you’re probably thinking. “Is this an election year? Does that mean…” YES, a special edition of Celebrity Jeopardy! all about politics and the media will be coming to a television set, computer screen and GIF-filled listicle near you. Why? Because among the notable cable news anchors, politicians and celebrities who will be in attendance during the program’s Power Players Week, none other than Louis C.K. will take his place with the contestants.

According to a press release, the anti-Canadian quiz show will feature 15 famous people during the week of May 16-20. The episodes, which will all tape on April 9 at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., will feature three players each, and each one will be playing for a different charity. The roster includes:

  • Kate Bolduan, host of CNN’s At This Hour
  • Louis C.K., comedian
  • Jonathan Capeheart, journalist at the Washington Post
  • Anderson Cooper, host of CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360°
  • S.E. Cupp, conservative commentator
  • Al Franken, U.S. Senator (D-Minnesota)
  • Jonathan Franzen, author
  • David Gregory, political analyst for CNN
  • Melissa Harris-Perry, professor and former television host for MSNBC
  • Sunny Hostin, senior legal correspondent for ABC News
  • Lara Logan, correspondent for 60 Minutes
  • Ana Navarro, Republican strategist
  • Michael Steele, former RNC chair and political analyst for MSNBC
  • Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s Meet the Press
  • Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men

Since the email listed the contestants alphabetically, there’s no way to tell which two contestants Louis will be paired up with. Yet whomever the 48-year-old comedian ends up playing Celebrity Jeopardy! with doesn’t matter. What matters most is that one of them says something really dumb…

Followed by something just as dumb from the other contestant…

Too bad Donald Trump‘s go-to spokesperson, Katrina Pierson wasn’t included in the mix. Even so, this is going to be so much fun.
