The TV season enters a new phase this week. The arrivals include:
"Salinger," a documentary about the mysterious author J.D. Salinger, premieres on PBS' "American Masters" at 9 p.m. Tuesday. The TV version is longer than the movie released to theaters in the fall; the earlier version drew mixed reviews. But fans of "The Catcher in the Rye" will welcome the insights into Salinger.
"Rake" presents Greg Kinnear as a Los Angeles defense attorney with a messy personal life but savvy in the courtroom. The comedy-drama debuts at 9 p.m. Thursday on Fox. Kinnear is a winning performer, but the tiring pilot plunges his character, Keegan Deane, into one scrape after another.
"Klondike" moves Discovery Channel into the world of scripted miniseries. The epic premieres at 9 p.m. Monday-Wednesday. This depiction of the Klondike Gold Rush features Sam Shepard, Tim Roth, Abbie Cornish, Billy Haskell and breathtaking scenery.
Elsewhere this week:
NBC is loading up on reality with two hours of "Hollywood Game Night" at 8 p.m. Monday and "The Biggest Loser" at 8 p.m. Tuesday. "Hollywood Game Night" features Julie Bowen, Beth Behrs, Valerie Bertinelli, Lester Holt, Jason Alexander and Martin Short.
It's a big week on Fox. "Sleepy Hollow" wraps up its first season with two hours at 8 p.m. Monday.
Golden Globe winner "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" offers a new episode at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday; its big night will be Feb. 2, when a new episode follows the Super Bowl.
"American Idol" started its 13th season with lower ratings last week. The singing contest continues at 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
Over on ABC, the women play soccer to impress "The Bachelor" at 8 p.m. Monday. "Castle" at 10 p.m. Monday investigates the hard-partying lifestyle of a dead pop star. "Modern Family" at 9 p.m. Wednesday brings back Shorty (Chazz Palminteri) and Darlene (Jennifer Tilly) to upset at Jay (Ed O'Neill).
On CBS, "NCIS" and "The Big Bang Theory" offer reruns. But the entire Monday lineup is new, and the network will be watching to see if "Intelligence," the Josh Holloway drama at 10, can make any headway against "The Blacklist" and "Castle."
