In the version of the show that was broadcasted, Bobcat Goldthwait only answered six of his Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correct; but, Bill Kurtis stated that Bobcat had answered seven correct. Since only seven of Bobcat's eight Lightning round questions were included in the edited version of the show, either: Bobcat did answer seven correct or Bill had miscounted the number of correct answers. That said, even if Bobcat was only given credit for six correct answers instead of seven, he would still have won the show with 15 points.
As with any other scoring anomaly, the score Bill Kurtis stated on the show is the official score on record.
This show is a repeat of the Best Of show that aired on 2015-07-04; which, in turn is a re-packaged version of the Best Of show from 2014-08-23.
