Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a new way to celebrate one's upcoming nuptials, Not My Job about monks and monasteries, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will James Comey forget to tell us at his hearing?
This is the second time in which the show featured an all women panel. The first time was 2015-09-12, which also featured Faith Salie and Paula Poundstone (along with Roxanne Roberts).

The last time that Bill Kurtis used "Legendary Anchorman" in his intro was back on a non-Best Of show was 2015-04-18.

Faith Salie gave an assist to the listener after Bill Kurtis read the second limerick by speaking in a robotic voice.

After Tracy finished answering her Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions and Peter asked how many Faith would need to win, Tracy asked Faith to throw the game; because, it was Tracy's first time on the show.

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a pop star's new secret life, Not My Job about Chevy Chase, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will Donald Trump get for his birthday?
The Bluff the Listener contestant originally chose Roy Blount, Jr.'s bluff; but, the audience reacted strong against the choice. The listener then changed over to Amy Dickinson's bluff and was correct.
