PETER GROSZ: Well, they claim they're going to try to make it run again, but it's just going to end up sitting on blocks in their driveway.

Opening Panel Round

Transcript

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Hey, if you've ever wondered what we look like, now is your chance to either be pleasantly surprised or horrified. We're doing our first ever TV special in a few weeks. It's WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!'s year in review for 2011.

It's an hour long television special on BBC America, on Friday, December 23rd, and it will also be heard on your favorite public radio station that weekend. I know it will be a tough choice between Carl and Frost the Snowman, but Carl does not need no magic hat to talk.
