As social distancing continues, the show is recorded with each person from a remote/home studio. During the first panel round, Mo Rocca mentioned that he had both an endoscopy and a colonoscopy; which, is why he said that he sounded a litle groggy and felt like he was flying due to the prep for the latter. Mo took off his shirt at least twice during the recording of the show. This was brought up during the Not My Job segment; to which, Mo explained that it was because the room he was recording in was really hot.
