Notes
The chanting of "Luuuuuuke" continues, in which Peter said "they are not booing, Mrs. Burbank, they are not booing" and Luke came back with "there has been some confusion around that". Miss America was booed when she provided a guess for her first question. This was not Adam Felber's week for the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, but did have fun: Cheese Doodles + Jesus = Cheesus.
