Must See HDTV for the week of January 7th: Justified, Helix and Alpha House

We're running a bit late due to CES (tripped over a curved Ultra HD TV), but there's still plenty to watch this week. The BCS National Championship dominated last night, but tonight we're focused on the season premiere of one of our favorite TV shows, Justified on FX. If the Elmore Leonard-inspired story of a US Marshal doesn't tickle your fancy, try the premiere of a new show from Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore called Helix. It airs Friday night, the same day you'll be able to pick up Wii Fit U and get started on those New Year's resolutions and when Amazon's original series Alpha house posts its season finale episode. On Blu-ray, this week's highlights include Riddick, Fruitvale Station and Carrie. Check after the break for our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and gaming.
