Saturday Night Live stirred up the zeitgeist this week by reprising the classic "Black Jeopardy" sketch—this time with Chadwick Boseman playing his Black Panther character T'Challa, king of Wakanda, the New York Times reports. On a clue about a policeman Boseman says he would "assist him in tracking down the offender. After all, our ministers of law enforcement are only here to protect us." Host Kenan Thompson responds with a look of nausea and says, "I'm thinking you haven't spent much time in America." The episode also features Alec Baldwin as President Trump (this time in the Balkans), a "Weekend Update" riff, a visit from Alex Moffat as Mark Zuckerberg, a surprise appearance by R. Kelly in a Disneyland-related sketch, and music by rapper Cardi B—who appears pregnant during her performance, the AP reports. (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
