Must See HDTV (December 19th - 25th)

While many programs take a holiday vacay, we've still found a few things to watch including the return of the NBA. Check below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listings of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

After a delay due to the lockout, the NBA is ready to get underway Sunday by putting its best and brightest under the lights. Lebron, Dwyane, Kevin, Kobe, Dirk and all the rest will be playing so if you're a hoops fan you'll want to have the gifts unwrapped early so you can secure a spot in front of the TV.
(Sunday, ABC/ESPN)

Who's Still Standing
With so much TV programming on winter break, NBC is sliding in this game show all week. It's yet another trivia show, however the twist in this one is that a wrong answer causes contestants to not only be eliminated, but also dropped out of sight below the floor. In a bit of of good or bad news, depending on your perspective, this probably puts us all one step closer to seeing The Running Man as a real show.
(Monday-Thursday, NBC, 8PM)

The League
If you listen to the podcast, you know how fantasy football obsessed we are. Even if you're not, this show brings a lot more to the table as a group of friends antagonize each other both in their virtual league and in real life. While we don't know who will be league champion, we'd bet on at least one more appearance by El Cunado Rafi during the season finale this week.
