What's on your HDTV: 'Star Wars' Blu-ray, 'Fantastic Contraption'

Now that The Walking Dead has wrapped up its season with an annoying cliffhanger, it's time for Fear the Walking Dead to step in on AMC. Of course, neither show matches up to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which arrives this week on Blu-ray after debuting on-demand last week. We've also got an exciting VR release, as Fantastic Contraption rolls out for properly-equipped PC gamers. Sports fans are ready for the final game of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament, as well as the beginning of the MLB season. American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J Simpson, Sleepy Hollow, 11.22.63 and Billions all have season finales this week, while American Idol drops in the series finale. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
