Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! Stats Page
Show Details: February 1999
The clip of the shouting Finns made a return to replace the sound of the gong during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment. Roxanne Roberts and Adam Felber started the segment with 2.5 and 3.5 points, respectively. Both correctly answered three questions each for a respectively total of 8.5 and 9.5. Both scores have been rounded up for the integer score columns.
For Not My Job, there was a fourth option for "none of the above" for all three questions.
Instead of predicting headlines for the next week, the predictions were for a specific theme. Future Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! shows would replace "Predicting Next Week's Headlines" with "Panelist Predictions".
