What's on your HDTV: NFL, 'Drunk History', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Trailer Park Boys'


It's time. This week NFL football is back (and so are the Engadget HD Podcast fantasy leagues), and the season kicks off Thursday night as the Packers face the defending Super Bowl Champion Seahawks on NBC. Boardwalk Empire on HBO starts its final season Sunday night, and we get our last episode of Drunk History for a while this week too. The League is back on FXX, and a downloadable Dance Central Spotlight game for Xbox One is finally ready to arrive. Fans of Canada's Trailer Park Boys can even look forward to season eight of the show, which will debut on Netflix Friday morning. The weirdest new entry? Fox's reality show, Utopia, which gathers 15 strangers together and will leave them on their own, for an entire year -- in between episodes viewers can tune in and watch 24/7 at, or through an app on mobile devices. Hit the gallery or just look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
