What's on your HDTV: Stephen Colbert, NFL, 'The League'

Tonight, Stephen Colbert steps out on the Late Show stage for the first time on CBS, while his guest list this week includes the CEOs of Tesla Motors and Uber. Later on this week, we'll celebrate the first kickoff of the NFL regular season, and the first episode of the last season of the FXX show The League. For movies, Avengers: Age of Ultron is available on VOD today, ahead of the upcoming Blu-ray release. On TV, we're expecting the season premiere of Continuum, as well as the return of the Project Greenlight reality show on HBO, as The Carmichael Show, Extant and Last Comic Standing all have season finales. Longmire is back for a fourth season on Netflix, and the last episode of Under the Dome airs Thursday night, while Super Mario Maker is debuting on the Wii U Friday. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed)
