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.
