Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone saving Christmas, Not My Job about Monopoly, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next kid problem to get solved?
Notes
This is the first show taped in front of an audience in Chicago since the start of the pandemic. The listener contestant answered the secnd Listener Limerick Challenge with "snakes on your plane". While Bill Kurtis accepted the answer, Peter Sagal didn't quite accept it. Brian Babylon then said "Snakes on a [bleep] plane!". With that, Peter credited the listener with the point. Another instance where all three panelists started the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment in a 3-way tie. Of the 7 questions that Brian were included during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment in the edited version of the show, Brian answered 5 of the questions correct (with 5 confirmations from Peter and 5 bell dings) for a total of 13 points. When Peter asked how well Brian did, Bill stated that Brian answered 4 correct for a total of 11 points. With the correct score, Brian would have tied for 1st with Negin rather than being tied for 2nd with Bobcat. The score listed reflects the official score as stated by Bill Kurtis.
