Notes
With Carl Kasell passing away this week, Peter Sagal remembered Carl Kasell with a dedicated segment after the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment and included a clip of Carl introducing the show from 2010 at the beginning of the show. Maz Jobrani flexed his Italian accent in telling his Bluff the Listener story. When Bill Kurtis was asked how Edie Falco did on the Not My Job segment, Bill said that Edie got two correct and then said "It looks like three to me" as Edie's character in The Sopranos would have said it. Another instance of all three panelists answering six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correct.
