Louis C.K. hosts Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live returned last night after a two-week hiatus, featuring as host comedian Louis C.K., who drew constant laughs throughout the night.

In one sketch, he played the role of a professor of African-American studies (from Brigham Young University, no less) who was a contestant on Black Jeopardy! It was hosted by Alex Treblack (SNL regular Kenan Thompson). During several outrageous moments, C.K. was faced with the categories, including “White People Are Always Lying About This?” and “Rap Songs that Start with  “N”.) Other contestants included Saturday Night Live regulars Jay Pharoah and Sasheer Zamata.
