As we return from CES (and dive headlong into the North American International Auto Show) we've got a number of our favorite TV shows returning from break. While sci fi fans wave good-bye to one high profile series they can welcome another this week, and sports fans are just making it until the conference championship games on Sunday. 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.
Often recommended in our comments during its Canadian run on Showcase last year, this sci fi show finally starts airing in the US tonight. You can hit Wikipedia for a summary of the plot (it involves time travel) or check out the trailer after the break, but until we watch it's going to be hard to explain. For now, just know it comes highly (and often) recommended by our readers, so it's probably worth a shot.

Fox's laws of science bending / universe and time stream jumping sci fi show finally ends its run this week. Unlike Continuum we've been watching every episode, but again, due to the presence of time travel as a plot device, your guess is as good as ours as to what's going on at the moment.

Our favorite cartoon spy is back on FX this week. If you don't know about Archer, you should immediately lock yourself away with nothing but a Netflix subscription to get familiar with the one of the more drunken and incompetent contributors to national security that there ever could be. We're definitely in the Danger Zone.
