Must See HDTV October 29th  November 4th

While the fall sports have taken the center stage, there's still plenty of other content to fill the schedule. Assassin's Creed 3 hits consoles this week, as well as the return of Okami in HD, while indie flicks Safety Not Guaranteed and Ruby Sparks are available on Blu-ray. Comedian Louis CK will take the stage on Saturday Night Live, and a collection of Alfred Hitchcock movies comes home in a new boxed set. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

NBA
After a whirlwind summer that saw the Heat complete their quest to win an NBA Championship (despite a lockout-shortened season) and the Olympic team bring home basketball gold medals, it's time for NBA action again. The season officially resumes Tuesday night as the Celtics take on the Heat and the Mavericks face the Lakers on TNT. There's a full slate of other interesting games awaiting including the debut of #1 draft pick Anthony Davis on the Hornets and more. We've got plenty of storylines to follow like Linsanity's move to Houston, Miami's quest to repeat and Dwight Howard joining Kobe, Steve and Pau on the Lakers.
(October 30th, TNT, 8PM)

Saturday Night Live w/ Louis CK
Comedian Louis CK has seen his popularity blow up as of late thanks to his cable show and an internet distributed show that set records. Now he's hosting Saturday Night Live, which should go well, and if it doesn't, then it will provide plenty of material for the next season of his show which is scheduled to air in 2014.
(November 3rd, NBC, 11:30PM)

Alabama/LSU college football
Last year Alabama LSU played in the regular season before meeting again in the championship game, and while that seems less likely to occur this time around it's still an SEC matchup worth keeping an eye on. Currently ranked first and fifth, respectively, in the BCS it will be one of the key matchups this season and provides an opportunity for LSU to redeem itself for last year's losses -- not that Nick Saban and Alabama will make doing that easy.
