Must See HDTV March 18th  24th

March Madness is dominating the TV schedule, but a number of shows are back with new episodes or premieres. The Hobbit comes to Blu-ray (in 3D, but not 48fps... yet) this week, and Continuum has its season finale. 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.

NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
The seedings are set and hopefully your brackets are all filled in. March Madness is upon us and over the next three weekends we'll see who emerges victorious from the field of 68 teams. This year you'll be able to catch all the action on PCs and mobile devices with free apps, however if you don't have a cable or satellite subscription, your selection of games will be very limited. Check out the full game schedule here.
(All week, CBS / TBS / TNT / TruTV)

Gizmodo: The Gadget Testers
Fellow tech blog Gizmodo will be premiering an episode of its show after the season finale of Top Gear tonight, which happens to feature our friend Veronica Belmont as one of the hosts. Check out a trailer after the break to see what the show is about, but it's probably like whatever you're already thinking.
