Jaleel WhiteThe man formerly known as Steve Urkel is now officially on a TV comeback streak.

Hot off his guest stint as a convict buddy of House's during the 'House' season premiere, Jaleel White has booked another gig.

The 34-year-old actor will host a new game show on Syfy called 'Total Blackout.' According to the network, the unscripted series is not your typical wacky challenge-based show -- the entire thing takes place in complete darkness. Contestants will face their fears as well as their competitors in spooky games full of surprises.

"Total Blackout brings to life, in a wonderfully clever, intense and funny way, what can happen when your imagination runs away with you," Mark Stern, Syfy's President of Original Content, said at the network's press tour. "We're also very excited to be partnered with a company like FreemantleMedia, who are using their amazing expertise to make this show one that makes you gasp and laugh in the same breath."

Production on the series will begin Oct. 18, according to the blog Accidental Sexiness.

NO! Not gonna watch it. Jaleel White and game show hosting doesn't mix. Now, as a CONTESTANT, yeah, but not as a host.

Won't watch it. Only watching Warehouse 13 because they canceled Eureka.

Syfy's slow trek towards irrelevancy continues.
