Chris Wink and Phil Stanton of Blue Man Group: 1
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone trying to save print journalism in a unique way, Not My Job about people who have a lot to say, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will Bernie Sanders do next?
Another instance where all three of the correct answers to the Not My Job questions were "B". Possibly to play on the name "Blue Man Group", which Chris Wink and Phil Stanton are members of.

Bill Kurtis mentioned that it was the first time in his tenure, as judge and scorekeeper, that all three panelists started the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round in a three-way tie. Bill last mentioned this back on the 2015-08-01 show, in which he was also incorrect with that statement as well.

Even though Bill did say that all three panelists where tied at the beginning of the Lightning round, he did not state how many points they had, 3, going in.

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a new way someone is saving relationships, Not My Job about other people who have blazed their own trails, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: how will they fix Rio in time for the Summer Olympics?
In the edited version of the show, only five out of the eight questions Bobcat was asked during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round made it, and one of the questions was one he answered correctly. Also, one of Maz's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions was edited out, which was also one that he answered correctly.

Due to the timing of the Brexit vote, they had to record two different takes on the Brexit vote outcome, one for and one against.
