Notes
Andy Williams had answered one of the Not My Job with "eyeball messager", which was not the correct answer as the show's staff had made it up. In actuality, the SkyMall catalog in fact had and sold an eyeball messager, which which Peter and Carl corrected on the 2010-01-09 show. The score now reflects the two correct answers Andy Williams had (to which, Carl proclaimed that the listener had won Carl's voice on the listener's answering machine).
