Must See HDTV September 9th  15th

Monday Night Football is back and there's a massive Texas A&M vs. Alabama college football game, but that's far from the only thing on TV this week. Star Trek Into Darkness highlights the Blu-ray releases but Trek fans beware: The Digital Bits warns Paramount has spread the extras as exclusives across retailers, meaning things like a commentary might not be on your version. We'd advise skipping it entirely until a proper release arrives with all the extras in tow.

One other show we're keeping an eye out for tonight is NBC's The Million Second Quiz. It's a 24/7 trivia show that ties in with mobile apps on Android and iOS to let viewers at home play along with the live broadcast and perhaps even get on the show. This week we also have the series finale for Burn Notice, season finale for The Newsroom, the premiere of Ricky Gervais' Derek on Netflix and the season premiere of Sons of Anarchy. Look after the break for our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.
