Comedian Jimmy Fallon challenged actress Tina Fey and MSBNC anchor Rachel Maddow to a trivia contest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night. In a recurring game on the show, known as “Know It All,” he presents a category, and the contestants have to come up with words within that category as fast as they can.

After struggling to think of the proper name for “wiener dog” during the “dog breeds” round, Fey, the former Saturday Night Live star, proved she knew her “rappers” and “cheeses” better than the host of The Rachel Maddow Show.

Fey plays a war correspondent in her latest film Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which opens in theaters March 4.
