    How can you find the results of a taped show before it airs?


  2. Andy Nguyen February 1, 2015 / 3:27 am

    You can't. If you know someone who taped a show, do not ask the person for the results because he/she signed a non-disclosure agreement (spoiling the outcome before it airs).

    Boy, what a show. Just glad Lawrence won something. (And the audience was just GREAT.)
