Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone getting busted for a surprising reason, Not My Job about Fiorello La Guardia, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next feel good story in the news?
Notes
The last name of the listener contestant for the Who's Bill This Time? was "Trump" and that piqued the interest of Peter Sagal and the panel. Peter accidentally called Bill Kurtis, "Boo," when he asked Bill who the listener contestant was for the Not My Job segment. After Christine Lagarde initially chose "C" for the third Not My Job question, the audience disapproved of her choice. Paula Poundstone relayed that to Christine Lagarde, who changed her answer to "B".

Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a news outlet that went above and beyond to get to the bottom of a story, Not My Job about loyalty reward programs, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the big hit during next year's Amazon Prime Day?
Notes
Mo Rocca suggested the name "nut juice" as a replacement for nut or seed-based milk products, now that the FDA has ruled that they can no longer be called "milk". The suggestion did not really go over that well. James Comey initially chose "A" for the third Not My Job question; but, Peter Sagal then gave him a big clue of what the correct answer was. James responded with "I meant to say I wouldn't take 'A';" in reference to what President Trump in response to him having "misspoken" about Russia's interfering in the 2016 U.S. elections. Since James only answered one Not My Job question correctly, Peter pulled out another Not My Job question for him to answer; in which, James answered it correctly and won. Since he won with an additional question, an exception has been noted in the database.

Notes
After Faith Salie listed the three choices for the first Not My Job question and Jon Batiste started to figure out his answer, the audience started yelling out "C". Jon asked the audience to yell it out again so that he could hear them. The second choice was about a Mo-Bot that edits out all of Mo Rocca's guessing on Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!
