You Don't Know Jack game show

You Don't Know Jack is a popular trivia video game produced by Jellyvision. The game describes itself as "where high culture and pop culture collide", using pop culture references to ask trivia questions. The series also led to a short-lived TV game show hosted by Troy Stevens (played by Paul Reubens). The Muppets are mentioned in many editions of the game.
