This show is Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!'s 1000th show to be broadcasted. This count excludes Repeat and Best Of shows, along with any special shows that were taped but not broadcasted as a standalone show.

The show was taped in Salt Lake City as they recorded their first show in front of a live audience in Salt Lake City (2000-01-29). Both Roy Blount, Jr. and Roxanne Roberts were on the panel for that show.

A good portion of the audience yelled out "B" for the first Not My Job question. For the second Not My Job question, the audience yelled out "C" after Nalini Nadkarni chose "A". Nalini changed her answer to "C" which was incorrect ("A" was the correct answer).
