Now, panel, how will NBC save Megyn Kelly's show? Mo Rocca.

MO ROCCA: She needs a youthful political co-host like Paul Ryan. It'll be like nothing you've seen before. Get set for life with Kelly and Ryan.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson.

AMY DICKINSON: Well, she really does, obviously, need a co-host, but I hear that O.J. Simpson is getting out of prison.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Alonzo Bodden.

ALONZO BODDEN: Well, he's almost out of work, so they're going to hire Chris Christie because there are still a few people who don't hate the show.

(LAUGHTER)

BILL KURTIS: And if NBC does any of that, panel, we'll ask you about it. Where? Right here on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Mo Rocca, Amy Dickinson and Alonzo Bodden. Thank you to Luke Dennis and everyone at WYSO. Thanks to everybody at the Schuster Performing Arts Center right here in Dayton, Ohio.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: And thanks, all of you, for listening. I am Peter Sagal, and we'll see you all next week.
