Must See HDTV (September 3rd - 8th)

This week, viewers can take their pick of big events coming to TV screens: the NFL is back, Futurama is going away for good, The League and Always Sunny are launching on a new cable network, Diablo III is arriving on consoles and Ace Ventura is out on Blu-ray. There's also the Blu-ray release of Sharknado and Luther's entire third series is airing on BBC America this week. Fans of Matt Groening's animated series will want to check out the Comedy Central website for a half hour before and after Futurama airs Wednesday to chat with the people who made it all possible.
