Yes the endless, rotten sh*t hurricane of a year that took away Bowie, Prince and Florence Henderson and gave us Trump, Harambe and the Zika virus is finally drawing to a close.

So, to give this b*tch a proper viking funeral, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked's Cody Johnston, Daniel O'Brien and Alex Schmidt and comedian Caitlin Gill to review our culture's year-in-review process.

They'll also shine a much needed light on some of the more overlooked stories from the year. For example, two-headed sharks keep appearing in our oceans and no one knows why. Even all the world's Bond villains are like, "don't look at us, we thought that was you." And Kim Kardashian! It feels like she's been on every magazine cover for the last 35 years and this year she got kidnapped at gunpoint and it barely raised an eyebrow. What is going on!?

To wrap up the conversation, Jack and company share some of their favorite cultural things from the year and report from the future with a preview of our 2017 year in review.
