Notes
At the beginning of the show, Peter was lamenting about the show being ignored because it was on radio, Carl responded with "Peter, you slut!". Mostly done as reference to Rush Limbaugh's recent incidents of calling Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute". One of Brian Babylon's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions was discussed during the Not My Job segment; to which, Brian Babylon answered the question correctly.

This show's panel consists of three comedians. Brian Babylon was able to flex his impressions of President Obama several times during the show.
