Show Details: June 2017
This is the second time in which the show featured an all women panel. The first time was 2015-09-12, which also featured Faith Salie and Paula Poundstone (along with Roxanne Roberts).
The last time that Bill Kurtis used "Legendary Anchorman" in his intro was back on a non-Best Of show was 2015-04-18.
Faith Salie gave an assist to the listener after Bill Kurtis read the second limerick by speaking in a robotic voice.
After Tracy finished answering her Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions and Peter asked how many Faith would need to win, Tracy asked Faith to throw the game; because, it was Tracy's first time on the show.
Good news. For Father's Day, you get an edi-Bill arrangement
The Bluff the Listener contestant originally chose Roy Blount, Jr.'s bluff; but, the audience reacted strong against the choice. The listener then changed over to Amy Dickinson's bluff and was correct.
The correct answer for the third Not My Job question was not just one of the three possible answers, but all three; which, Eddie Izzard guessed correctly.
There was some pen or button clicking sound during a couple of segments during the show, but most evident during Alonzo Bodden's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round. Alonzo took a little long to come up with an answer for his third Lightning question and Peter reminded him that it was the "Lightning" round.
