AIR DATE: January 2, 2013

Today is supposed to be the end of the world. Or so say those who believe the end of the Mayan calendar marks the apocalypse. Hollywood has tried to create a vision of what the world would look like after most of humanity just suddenly died off. At times they tried to show us these frightening and sometimes hilarious views of a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas. What was the Mayan calendar really telling us? And, if in case world ends Friday, but a few of us survive, we'll look at life in Sin City where zombies roam and we fight for survival.
