Here we go again, folks! Another work week (or work-from-home week, as the case may be) is underway. But that doesn't mean we should neglect our time in front of the TV. Far from it, actually.

The usual Monday night fare is up for grabs this week — nothing too out of the ordinary going on. But if you do need a few minutes away from work during the day, there's a smattering of European soccer available for your attention.

Keep on reading for the full list of what's up today.
