From NPR and WBEZ-Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!, the NPR News quiz. I'm Carl Kasell. We're playing this week with Jessi Klein, Paula Poundstone and Maz Jobrani. And here again is your host, at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Peter Sagal.
PETER SAGAL, HOST:
Thank you. Thank you so much.
(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)
SAGAL: In just a minute, Carl's got rhyme-nuts roasting on an open fire in the Listener Limerick Challenge.
Coming up, it's Lightning Fill in the Blank. But first, it's the game where you have to listen for the rhyme. If you'd like to play on air, call or leave a message at 1-888-Wait-Wait. That's 1-888-924-8924. You can click the contact us link on our website waitwait.npr.org, there you can find out about attending our weekly live shows here at the Chase Bank Auditorium in Chicago.
Hey, we want to remind everybody to check out the first ever WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME! TV special airing Friday night, December 23rd at 8:00/7:00 Central on BBC America. We have invited some special guests across the pond and help us review our favorite stories of 2011.
Watch the show Friday night on BBC America, then tune into the radio show on Saturday and Sunday to hear us play all the bits too racy for cable. That's BBC America's WAIT WAIT TV special next Friday, December 23rd, 8:00 Eastern/7:00 Central.
