CNN hosts were angry and frustrated at "Jeopardy!" contestants who didn't know the name of President Joe Biden's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The clip came from the November 9 broadcast of the game show.

"She's the first black woman on the Supreme Court and the first justice to have been a federal public defender," was the clue, but none of the contestants even ventured a guess.

The answer, of course, was Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Don Lemon took his glasses off and sighed dramatically after CNN rolled the clip.

"I don't think that's surprising, I will say," said co-host Kaitlan Collins.

"But these are smart people in the world," responded Lemon.

"That's a good point," said Collins.

"When you go on Jeopardy," Lemon said.

"She was just confirmed, it's been in the news!" Poppy Harlow interjected.

"If you're standing outside, I think Kaitlin's right, if you're standing outside of a mall or whatever, people may not know, when they do the man on the street thing, yes," Lemon said.

"But when you're smart enough to be a contestant on ‘Jeopardy!’?" he questioned.

"You gotta know about current events!" said Collins.

"Yeah!" Lemon agreed.

"And history-making ones," added Harlow.

"Yeah!" Lemon said. "Yeah!"

Jackson was confirmed by the U.S. Senate by a vote of 53 to 47 in April with three Republican senators breaking ranks and joining with Democrats. She replaced Justice Stephen Breyer, who retired from the court.

"Judge Jackson’s confirmation was a historic moment for our nation. We’ve taken another step toward making our highest court reflect the diversity of America," said Biden at the time.

Some viewers also excoriated the celebrity edition of "Jeopardy!" after a clue on the show referenced the suicide death of Brian Laundrie, who admitted to killing his fiancée, Gabby Petito, in a crime that made national headlines.

Here's the video of the hosts' outrage:

'Jeopardy!' contestants displayed their ignorance of US History and viewers were upset: 'Worst showing ever.'

Viewers and fans of the popular "Jeopardy!" quiz show were dismayed when none of the contestants were able to answer the clue based on very elementary knowledge of U.S. History.

The show aired Tuesday and was being hosted by "Big Bang Theory" actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik.

During a round of Double Jeopardy, contestant Robin Lozano chose the "Quotations" category for $800. Bialik gave him the clue from a very famous speech.

"'Government of the people, by the people, for the people' is from the end of this brief but powerful speech," she said.

The seconds ticked away before the buzzer sounded without any of the contestants offering even a guess at the solution to the clue.

The famous line came from the Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln in November 1863.

Many viewers were shocked and surprised that none of the contestants knew this very simple factoid in U.S. History.

"Not know the Gettysburg Address?? Worst showing ever. None of these 3 deserved to win tonight. If they'd been asked to add 3 + 2, they'd have looked around like confused squirrels," said one critic.

"I'm gonna pretend like I just didn't see ALL THREE contestants miss 'the Gettysburg Address' just now," replied another.

"How did #Jeopardy manage to find three contestants who don't recognize the closing line of the Gettysburg Address? This isn't Elementary Jeopardy, folks," mocked another critic.

"Wow, no one knew The Gettysburg Address. That made me sad," responded another.

Some made reference to Alex Trebek, the former host of the show who passed away from pancreatic cancer in November.

"That sound you hear is Alex Trebek spinning in his grave," tweeted one viewer.
