Notes
After Peter Sagal listed the three options for the second Not My Job question, the audience started yelling out "B"; which, Candice Bergen took the audience's chose and it was the correct one. During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, Paula Poundstone couldn't quite come up with the name "Golden Globe" and circled around the word "Globe". Peter accepted that as the correct answer.

Notes
Peter Sagal gave the Beastie Boys a chance to change their answer to the third Not My Job question. The audience and the panelists nudged them to choose "A"; which, was the correct answer. The gong sound that is used to mark time running out during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment didn't play in the edited version of the show at the end of Adam Felber's set of questions.
