Notes
After the mention of the "Meow The Jewels" album during the Not My Job segment, cat meowing sounds can be heard in the background. Also, at the end of the Not My Job segment, Peter slipped and said "Run The Jews" instead of "Run The Jewels". For Maz Jobrani's second Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, he initially answered "NAFTA" and quickly changed it to "TPP" and Peter Sagal accepted it. All three panelists answered six Lightning round questions correct.
