Correct: Charlie Pierce
Week in Review; Who's Carl This Time?; Not My Job about past Academy Awards shows; Listener Limerick Challenge; Week in Review; Bluff the Listener about an event to mark the end of winter and the beginning of spring; Week in Review/More News; Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank; Panelist Predictions: what will the Taliban ban next?

The show page on NPR.org did not list the Bluff the Listener segment, but listed a second Who's Carl This Time? segment that was not included in the show. The third Week in Review segment was listed as More News on the same page.

Adam Felber answered his last Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question was "Sonny Bono's wife" and Charlie Pierce jumped in with "Cher". Neither Adam or Charlie got a bell ding for their answer. Up to that point, Adam had only answered five questions correct for 10 additional points and a total of 12. Carl Kasell noted that Adam had answered six correct for a total of 14 points. The score listed reflects the official record as stated by Carl.

The show ended with Panelist Predictions rather than the previous standard of Predicting Next Week's Headlines and Peter Sagal did not provide a prediction.
