Notes
Special topic show with a look at politics, here and abroad, past and present. In the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Tom Bodett didn't get the "correct" and a ding on the sixth correct answer; but, Carl did count it as correct in the score. When Carl was asked how many questions Charlie Pierce need to answer correctly to win, Carl said seven. In fact, Charlie would have only needed six to win: Tom Bodett had 15 points and Charlie started with 4, meaning answering six questions correctly would add 12 points for a total of 16 points. 16 > 15. Either way, Charlie did answer seven questions correctly.
