NPR DB ID: 803
Legendary Anchorman
Guest: Bill Kurtis
Chosen: Luke Burbank
Correct: Faith Salie
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about the secret lives of cats, Not My Job about "mooning", Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: who will be the next person to flee the country?

Even though Buzz Aldrin only answered one Not My Job question correct, Bill Kurtis decided to give Buzz all three correct. This isn't the first time that either the host or the scorekeeper overruled and allowed the Not My Job guest to win the prize for the listener even though the guest didn't answer 2 or 3 questions correctly. The last time was on 2005-06-25, in which Maj. Robert Bateman didn't answer the first two Not My Job questions correctly, in which Peter gave an exception and said if Maj. Robert Bateman answered the third question correctly, he would win the prize and promptly did so.
