Notes

In the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Maz Jobrani answered six questions correctly (Peter said right, yes or correct six times and there were six dings), but Carl stated that Maz only had answered five correctly. Even the show's transcript lists six "(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)" for Maz. The correct score breakdown should have been: 3 / 6 / 15, not the 3 / 5 / 13 as noted by the show. If the points had been tallied correctly for Maz, Maz and Amy would have been tied for first.

Notes

Louie Anderson first chose "A" for the second Not My Job question and Peter Sagal nudged Louie to choose another answer while a few people in the audience booed Louie. Louie asked why he was being booed. Louie changed his answer to "B", which was correct.

Roy Blount, Jr. said that one day he will beat Roxanne Roberts on Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! Roy actually won over Roxanne on several occasions. The last four occasions were: 2007-02-17, 2007-03-03, 2011-03-05 and 2014-07-19.
