Notes
The listener contestant for the Who's Bill This Time? round didn't know about the photo of Kim Kardasdian's naked butt, which was enough for Bill to give her all three points for the round on principle. During the Not My Job segment, Ron Perlman had to step away for a moment after there was a bit of dog barking in the background. Ron asked upon Alonzo's thoughts for the second question, both were correct.

Notes
During Paula's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, she had a bit of help from P.J. on answering one of the questions. In response, Paula said that she cheated after Peter and Bill took her correct answer. After her round ended, she asked if she could have that applied to P.J. and deducted from her score (in which Paula would have 12 points, not 10 as she mentioned).
