Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about the panelists doing something embarrassing and making the news, Not My Job about Terry Gene Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will President Donald Trump do first, once he takes office?
Another instance in which all three of the correct answers for the Not My Job questions were "B".

Instead of playing a recorded audio of a person involved or explaining the correct bluff, Peter Sagal asked Peter Grosz whether or not his bluff was the correct one or not.

The first three questions that Amy was asked during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round started off with "Experts say it was a technical glitch and not a cyberattack". When trying to come up with an answer for the last Lightning round question, Peter reminded Amy that it was, in fact, the Lightning round. Amy incorrectly thought it was a hint to the question. Peter did his best Mr. Burns's "Excellent!" impression after a question regarding Harry Shearer would continue to voice some characters from The Simpsons.
