Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring favorite interviews and segments from 2018
The Bluff the Listener segment came from the 2018-12-07 live taping at Carnegie Hall in New York City, New York. Since that show did not air as a regular Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! show, I have noted the chosen and correct bluff information for this show.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "I'm one of the legendary voices of the NPR credits" Chioke I'Anson

Mike D'Antoni: 3
Who's Chioke This Time?, Bluff the Listener about problems specific to Dubai, Not My Job about a Mike, a Dan and a Tony, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next relevation from the world of literature?
For the second Not My Job question, Mike D'antoni asked if he could choose "D", all of the above. Peter Sagal accepted that answer since all three of the options were in fact correct.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "Sorry Mitch McConnell, nobody blocks this Bill" Bill Kurtis 
Helen Hong: 19 (5/7)
Mo Rocca: 13 (3/5)
Alonzo Bodden: 11 (5/3)
Chosen: Alonzo Bodden
Correct: Helen Hong
Conan O'Brien: 1
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a surprising effort to clean up the planet, Not My Job about hot cocoa, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next self-help trend?
When asked how Conan O'Brien did on the show, Bill Kurtis said that he would throw the score out because anything Conan says is right.

Mo Rocca really pulled a Mo Rocca during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round when trying to come up with an answer for the 5th question. Alonzo Bodden would also try to pull a Mo Rocca for his second Lightning question. Peter Sagal also accepted Alonzo's answer of "collusion" for his first Lightning question.

Only five of Alonzo's eight Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions were included in the edited version of the show and Bill stated that Alonzo had three points. One of the three points would have been in one of the three questions that was cut out.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "Bill the wall! Bill the wall! I'm Bill the Kurtis" Bill Kurtis 
Adam Burke: 12 (2/5)
Amy Dickinson: 12 (2/5)

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about the Millcreek Elementary Fourth Grade Science Fair, Not My Job about Ulsses S. Grant, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will we find under all of the ice and show when it finally melts?
For the 3rd Not My Job question, Richard E. Grant stuck with his answer of "B" even after Peter questioning his choice and jeering from the audience. When Peter Sagal asked how Richard did, Bill Kurtis said he would give Richard the win, in part for starring with Chicago-native Melissa McCarthy. The exception has been noted.

After Maeve Higgins gave her answer to her first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question and Peter saying that the correct answer was "Iran", Maeve then said "Iran" in hopes of getting the point. Meave would then repeat the "Iran" answer for the second question, which was not correct.
Savannah, GA (Savannah Civic Center)Peter Sagal "Hey there Georgia, I'll take a bite of your juicy peach" Bill Kurtis 
Roxanne Roberts: 15 (3/6)

Correct: Peter Grosz
Stacey Abrams: 3
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about an unsolved mystery, Not My Job about bromances, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be next year's Super Bowl half-time show?
Another instance of Mo Rocca using the topic of dingoes in Australia being used in a Bluff the Listener story; but, this time, there is a twist!

The audience shouted out "B" while Stacey Abrams was trying to come up with an answer for the first Not My Job question and shouted out even louder when she first chose "A". She changed her answer to "B", which was correct. For the second Not My Job question, Peter Sagal gave her a strong hint of which answer was correct.

During the second panel round, Roxanne Roberts stole Mo Rocca's question. Mo would then steal Roxanne's question.

Another instance of all three panelists starting the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment in a three-way tie.

Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring favorite moments from recent shows
The Bluff the Listener segment included in this show was from the 2018-12-15 show; and, thus, the chosen and correct bluff information will not be included for this show.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "Let me toss your salad. I'm, I'm Bill-samic vinaigrette" Bill Kurtis 
Faith Salie: 14 (2/6)

Aaron Sorkin: 1
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about pickles coming to the rescue, Not My Job about hot wings, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the thing everyone will be talking about at next year's Oscars?
During the first panel round, Faith Salie said "We'll turn the light off for you" as a twist on the Motel 6 tagline: "We'll leave the light on for you"; which, was coined by Tom Bodett.

All three of the choices for the third Not My Job question were correct.

Six of the eight Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions asked to Paula Poundstone made it into the edited version of the show. Of those six questions, Paula answered four correct and two incorrect. Bill Kurtis said that Paula answered five correct; which, means that the fifth one would have been one of the two questions that were edited out.

Adam Felber: 14 (2/6)

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about one of the greatest questions in the world being answered, Not My Job about Garfield, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: who will be the next young billionaire?
Adam Felber's fifth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question was about a Chicago Bears signing a new kicker named Chris Blewitt. Adam had a couple of guesses before Peter Sagal asked Peter Grosz, who knew the correct answer and was given a ding. Even so, Peter Grosz did not get credit for that answer; thus, all three panelists finished the game in a three-way tie.

Bill Kurtis stated that a three-way tie has "never happened before"; in which, Peter Sagal said, "Bill, you say that every time that happens".
San Diego, CA (San Diego Civic Theatre)Peter Sagal "Stay classy, San Diego" Bill Kurtis 
Jessi Klein: 11 (3/4)

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about unimoons, Not My Job about fancy birds, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: after the college admission bribing scandal, how will Hollywood celebrities get their kids into college?
The third Not My Job question was in regards to a bird beating up David Attenborough while filming a BBC documentary. The correct answer for all three Not My Job questions are: B, B, C.

For Helen Hong's sixth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, she first answered "chicken" but then changed it to "turkey". Peter Sagal gave her the point because he knew her parents would be unhappy.
Chicago, IL (Chase Auditorium)Peter Sagal "I am one of the voices of NPR's credits" Chioke I'Anson
Adam Burke: 15 (3/6)
Mo Rocca: 15 (3/6)

Who's Chioke This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a competition that is captivating us this month, Not My Job about 80s Brians, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next social media scandal?
Aidy Bryant initially chose "C" for the first Not My Job question but was then nudged by Adam Burke and Mo Rocca to change her answer to "B"; which, she did and it was the correct answer. The third option for all three Not My Job questions involved Hoover vacuums jingles.

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about something great accomplished with only $5,000, Not My Job about Ethel Merman, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next reason NASA cancels a spacewalk?
Peter Sagal seemed to pronounce Hari Kondabolu's name as "Kun-dah-boo-loo" throughout the show.

Paula Poundstone initially answered "Syria" for her second Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, but then changed it to "Israel" when Peter started to say "No". Peter accepted Paula's corrected response.

Hari nabbed his first ever win on Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

Correct: Maeve Higgins
Dan Rather: 2
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about new prom trends, Not My Job about what Dan Rather actually said, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will we find when we zoom into the photo of the black hole?
The correct answers for the Not My Job questions were "A", "B" and "C". Dan Rather worked for CBS, which is a competitor to ABC.

During the second panel round, called "The 2020 Dump", the way Maeve Higgins pronounced "urinal" piqued Peter Sagal and Alonzo Bodden's interest.

After Maeve finished her Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank set of questions, Bill Kurtis said that she had beaten her old record by answering two questions correctly. Maeve has answered more than two correct (she answered three correctly on her panelist debut on 2018-09-08 and four correct on her second appearance on the panel on 2018-12-22).

Alonzo Bodden answered his third Lightning question with "went to get it", which was pretty close to what the person did. After asking for his answer to be reconsidered, Alonzo got his point. Negin Farsad answered her fifth Lightning question with "eaten by an elephant" and was close enough to "killed by an elephant and eaten by a lion" and she got her point for it.

In the edited version of the show, during Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank, Peter Sagal did not ask Bill Kurtis how Tom Bodett did before moving on to asking Amy her set of questions. Bill did mention how many points Tom got while stating how Amy did after answering her questions.

Seth Meyers: 2
Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring favorite moments and some never-before-aired panelist questions
For the first panel round, the NPR transcripts list Helen Hong and "Unidentified Person #1" and "Unidentified Person #2". Unidentified Person #1 sounds very much like Roy Blount, Jr. and my best guess on who Unidentified Person #2 could be Jordan Carlos. Once a definitive answer has been obtained, that spot will be left blank.

The Bluff the Listener segment was from the 2018-09-08 show and not from a yet-to-be-aired show; thus, the chosen and correct data will not be entered for this show.

The Not My Job segment with Seth Meyers came from the 2018-12-07 live taping at Carnegie Hall in New York City, New York and was originally aired on the 2018-12-29 Best Of show.

Marin Alsop nudged for a hint on the first Not My Job question and got an assist from the audience when they yelled out "C" after Peter Sagal read all three options for the third Not My Job question.

After Peter Sagal read Aida Rodriguez's first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, someone yelled out "budget" and Aida answered with "budget". After Peter Sagal read Adam Burke's first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, it sounded like Aida whispered, out loud, "tax". Adam answered with "tax returns".

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about changes in the game of golf, Not My Job about people not stopping at stop lights or signs, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next altered image in the news?
This is the third regular show to air that has an all women panel. The previous two shows were 2015-09-12 with Faith Salie, Roxenne Roberts and Paula Poundstone, and 2017-06-10 show with Paula Poundstone, Faith Salie and Tracy Clayton. With that, Paula has been part of all three shows with an all women panel.

For the Mary Wilson's first Not My Job question, Amy Dickinson provided a little bit of assistance to nudge Mary towards the correct answer. For the second question, the audience yelled out a mix of answers that were a mix of "B" and "C", with the latter being more prominent. Each of the three questions had one choice that involved a horse; which, Mary asked what that was all about.

Amy answered her third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "export bill" while trying to come up with "extradition bill". Amy was given the point. For Amy's eighth Lightning question, she initially answered "toddler"; but, then Paula said that it was close and Amy changed her answer to "dog". There was a bell ding given but Amy, nor Paula, were credited with the point. The score listed for this show is based on what was announced by Bill Kurtis.

Tom Papa tripped over Philipp Goedicke and Ian Chillag's name while reading the credits.

Many in the audience yelled out "B" for both the first and second Not My Job questions; while "B" was the correct answer for the first question, it was not correct for the second. For the third question, it was a bit more of a mix of all three "A", "B" and "C".

When Peter Sagal asked Bill Kurtis for the panelists's scores at the beginning of Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank, Bill called Peter Grosz, "Paul". Peter Grosz answered his third Lightning question correct, did not receive a bell ding but it did get the point for it.
