Hey, Mister Rogers, come over to the land of make Bill-ieve
Peter Sagal had a little bit of trouble pronouncing Soleimani's name during the Who's Bill This Time? segment.
The Bluff the Listener contestant's name was Luke, which lead to Luke Burbank, along with the audience, to chant "Luuuuuuke" at the listener contestant. When asked which of the three Bluff stories was correct, Luke the contestant started his response with "What is". Peter responded by saying that the contestant was thinking of the wrong show. When Peter said that the contestant chose the right story, Luke Burbank said, "Thank You".
There was some technical difficulties during the Not My Job interview in which the call seemed to have dropped. They were able to get Ronan back on to complete the interview and segment.

The first panel round was a jump ball question in which the first panelist to answer the question correctly would get 100 points. None of the panelists had the correct answer.
Maeve Higgins pronounced the word "tortoise" in an uncommon manner while reading her Bluff the Listener story; to which, Peter Sagal asked her about it and Maeve wasn't exactly sure how the word was actually pronounced.
The audience assisted with the third Not My Job question by way of clapping to which answer they thought was correct.
Maeve initially answered her third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "Prince Philip" but then changed it to "Prince Harry". Normally the first answer would be accepted; but, Peter decided to accept her second answer.
