This is a 90 minute special presentation preceding the closing ceremonies where Bob Costas and Al Michaels will highlight stories and moments from the Olympics which, if you’ve been watching the Olympics, is likely highly unnecessary and annoying.

“Air Jaws Apocalypse” on Discovery at 9:00pm. SHARK WEEK, OO HA HA!
“Breaking Bad” on AMC at 10:00pm ET.
