Great job, Tommynator!

I added formatting and answers to your transcript (please check my work). You can use that post as a template in the future. You should also include commercial breaks and the QotD. You'll have to get the BBTranscriptTeam password, and learn how to move posts from the WWTBAM Show Transcripts forum to the WWTBAM Bored Posts forum.

Snaxx is looking for a replacement Tuesday transcriber. Can you do it? (I can take both of today's shows if you haven't recorded them.)

Is the transcript correct that only 9% of the audience was right? Malcolm played smartly to avoid getting tripped up.

His dad went through the alphabet and both of them realized there were no states mentioned.

The audience really fell down on this one, but I'm not surprised. Clinton has been in the news a lot.

His twin brother made it to the $50,000 question but missed it and left with $5,000.

Thanks, Jarnon!
Everything looks excellent. Sorry about the QotD and commercials. The 9% for Hillary was right.
Sorry, but my transcribing was a one-time shot. I don't have cable, and the episode was uploaded to YT already, so that motivated me to help out.
