Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone trying to save the environment, Not My Job about john (aka toilet) testers, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the big surprise from this year's Super Bowl?
When providing one of the choices of the second Not My Job question, which was in regards to toilet testing done by the Gates Foundation, Peter said "Widnows" rather than "Windows".
Even though Peter said that, per a coin toss, Amy would go first. Instead, Peter Grosz went first. Peter Grosz only answered five of the eight questions correctly, yet Bill Kurtis said he answered six. Due to this, Peter Grosz ended up in a tie with Tom Bodett. Tom should have been the outright winner of that week's game and Amy Dickinson would have tied for 2nd with Peter Grosz.
