Notes
The show had a recording of Robert Siegel, who recently retired from "All Things Considered", saying President Trump's "shithole" quote. The second option for all three of the "life hack" panel questions were all written for laughs, leaving the first option being the correct one. Peter Sagal goofed by saying "black women's maternity pants" instead of "women's black maternity pants". Bill Kurtis stated that it was the first time in three years that all three panelists were tied at the start of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round; but, didn't state how many points they started with. The last time all three panelists were tied going into Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank was on the show that aired on 2016-06-11 in which Bill also didn't state how many points all three panelists had (which was also 3).
