Paula Poundstone went through her rants about the dubious and pointless studies.
The last time Maz Jobrani was on the show, 2012-06-16, Carl only credited Maz for five correct answers even though he had answered six correctly. This error was not mentioned or corrected on this show.
Another case in which each of the correct answers for the Not My Job segment questions were "B".
All three panelists finished in a tie with 12 points each. Last show that ended with a three-way tie was the 2012-09-29 show.
Drew Carey had a bit of fun with saying that he was a soccer fan while Peter Sagal was not. This is in reference to the several times that Peter has mocked soccer, the World Cup and during the Not My Job segment with Steven Cohen on 2006-05-27. Drew is also a co-owner of the MLS team: Seattle Sounders FC.
Drew Carey had Tom Bodett do the "We'll leave your head on for you" a la Motel 6 ads. Tom then said, "Deep Six Morgue Hotel: We'll leave your head on for you".
All three panelists each answered six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correctly. The last two times this has happened was 2009-09-12 and 2012-04-14.
