28 Up: January 4, 2014. The Kansas City Chiefs are up by 28 points over the Indianapolis Colts in the 3rd quarter. What happens has only happened one other time in NFL history.
35 Up: This documentary covers the devastating collapse of I-35W in Minneapolis in 2007, and the efforts to rebuild the bridge and help the victims of the collapse.
42 Up: A documentary-style comedy about adults turning age 42 who are finally allowed to know the ultimate question to life, the universe, and everything.
49 Up: Who were the profiteers of the 1849 California gold rush? How much influence do they have on society today?
56 Up: The Story of Las Vegas' most controversial bet - What is the over/under for how many former Academy Award Nominees will be accused of sexual misconduct in 2017?
