Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about an Alfred Hitchcock movie coming to life, Not My Job about Saran wrap, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: who will steal the spotlight from Donald Trump at next week's debate?
The Bluff the Listener contestant initially chose Mo Rocca's bluff as the true story, but then changed her mind and chose Brian Babylon's bluff after Peter Sagal started to repeat the summary of Mo Rocca's bluff. Neither were the correct story.

At the beginning of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Bill Kurtis noted that each panelist had three points entering the round and that was the first time there was a three-way tie. That statement is incorrect, even if it was reflecting in it being the first time Bill Kurtis presided over a game in which there was a three-way tie going into the Lightning round.

Peter called time on Mo Rocca's Lightning round as Mo was trying to come up with a second answer for his 8th Lightning round question.
