Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! Stats Page
Show Details: August 2016
During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, when Bobcat Goldthwait correctly answered his second question, there was no sound of a bell ding.
After Katie Couric provided her answer for the second Not My Job question, both Peter and Paula gave her a good nudging on what the correct answer was. Katie changed her answer to the correct one.
When Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! was in Portland, Oregon back in June 2016, they recorded two shows, one on Thursday the 23rd, and one on Friday the 24th. The one taped on Thursday was edited and then aired that weekend. The segments from the Friday show did not immediately air, as some included questions that were already asked on the Thursday show.
The Bluff the Listener segment and the Not My Job segment from the Friday show were aired for the first time on this Best Of show.
Normally, the chosen bluff and the correct bluff from Bluff the Listener segments re-aired on Best Of shows do not get noted in the Stats Page database. In this case, the Bluff the Listener segment was not aired as part of a regular Wait Wait show, I have noted the chosen and correct bluff information for this show.
