"weiner." weiner mie, all you can think
about the whole time is why did he let the cameras there? >> and you really just wanted it to end, because it was painful to watch. >> you did disgusting things. you have a nerve to walk around in public. >> and you're a perfect person? you're my judge? >> for all of that, this was one of the weakest years in decades for movie attendance, in part because of millennials aren't going much and a lot of things are competing for our attention, including a dazzling year in sports. fear of zika and crime kept some athletes away, some russians were disqualified for doping, and still the rio games were great. >> how can you not love the olympics? >> it's the only time, i think, in any sporting event you really feel patriotic. >> you guys did kick all the booties. >> the u.s. gymnastics team nailed it, michael phelps became the most decorated olympian of all time with 28 lifetime medals, katie ledecky dazzled, but then another swimmer gave us

gave us old people hope that you can still win a super bowl at the age of 40 still. >> in hockey, metallica played the national anthem before their san jose sharks tangled with the pittsburgh penguins, but then skated off with a stanley cup, anyway. in basketball, the never-champion cleveland cavaliers faced the same team they lost the nba trophy to last year, falling perilously behind. >> the cavaliers came back and under lebron james they beat the golden state warriors. it was amazing. >> and that might have been the best sports story, if it weren't for the cubs. >> this is the most dramatic thing i've ever seen. it was awesome. >> in the world series of a lifetime, the long-suffering chicago team fought back from a terrible hole against the cleveland indians, breaking a 108-year dry spell.
>> 108 years is crazy. >> people were like, ahhh! >> i think it's amazing that in the time the cubs had won their last world series, my country had started and lost two world wars. so, again, sorry about both of those, and also, congratulations to you, chicago cubs. >> as the late cubs announcer harry caray would say, holy cow. in a moment, "alexander" storms broadway, an old friend goes missing, and a naked burglar. plus, ec quest. it's "all the best, all the worst 2016." the world is full of surprising moments. they're everywhere. and as a marriot rewards member,
