Panelists
Guests
Bluff
Chosen: Peter Grosz
Correct: Peter Grosz
Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about advances in dance clubs, Not My Job about Dancing with the Stars, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be found along I-95 in Virginia once traffic has cleared?
Notes
The show was recorded remotely. Before the Bluff the Listener and the second Panel Round, Bill Kurtis introduced Peter Sagal as "Bert Sagal" to keep from confusing either Peter Sagal or Peter Grosz. Woody Hoburg initially answered "A" for the first Not My Job question, but Peter Sagal hinted that it might not be the correct answer. Woody then changed his answer to "B, but the correct answer was actually "C". For the second Not My Job question, Woody initially answered "B," but the panelists, especially Roxanna Roberts, nudged him to "A," which was the correct answer. When Peter Sagal asked Bill how Woody did, Bill gave Woody all three points. Peter Sagal closed out the show with "I'm Burt Sagal. And, we'll see you next week."
