1) “The Good Fight,” 9 and 10 p.m. Sunday, CBS. One of TV’s best shows has been semi-invisible. The first episode aired on CBS, but the others were on CBS All-Access; in the first season (of three, so far) shows were reaching less than 2 per cent of TV homes. Now that season gets a CBS summer run. First, Diane (Christine Baranski, shown here) of “Good Wife” loses her money and her job; with a young protege (whose dad drained the money), she goes to a mostly black law firm. It’s a strong start to a smart show.
2) “Pose” season-opener, 10 p.m. Tuesday, FX. It’s 1990 now, with powerful forces emerging – the devastation caused by AIDS … the rage of the Act Now movement … and the pop-culture impact of Madonna’s “Vogue.” Bianca is convinced the song will bring success to the vogue culture in the gay underground; others doubt it. Bursting with optimism (despite her health troubles), Bianca pushes Angel to compete in a search for models. It’s a passionate episode, beautifully directed and played.
3) “Masterpiece: Endeavour” season-opener, 9 p.m. Sunday, PBS. With his police station closed, Bright does traffic videos; one of his former underlings (Fancy) was killed, another (Thursday) reluctantly takes orders from the arrogant Box. And Morse? Everything – his love love, his job, his mustache – is quite awful. He’s in the boondocks, where crimes are rare … until now. Young girls have vanished; Box jumps to a conclusion and ignores Morse. The result is an exceptionally sharp and tangled mystery.
4) Game-show openers, 8-11 p.m. Wednesday, ABC. For ABC, summer success is built on old-time game shows. That includes Sundays. (Tonight, June 9, has the season-openers of “Celebrity Family Feud,” “$100,000 Pyramid” and “To Tell the Truth.”) And Wednesdays will revive two 1980s shows — “Press Your Luck” (8 p.m.) is hosted by Elizabeth Banks, “Card Sharks” (9 p.m.) by Joel McHale. Then Alec Baldwin’s “Match Game” includes Jason Alexander, Sheryl Underwood and Michael Che.
5) “Kate Plus Date” debut, 10 p.m. today, TLC. For a dozen years, Kate Gosselin has almost lived on reality-TV, often with Jon (now her ex-husband), their twins (now 18) and sextuplets (15). This time, just the twins are there, advising and criticizing as their mom, 44, works with two dating coaches. We’re soon told that she “has a very hard shell” and “has trust issues.” We also see that she may be lethargic at batting practice or racquetball, as the coaches try to nudge her into active dates and quiet dinners.
6) “So You Think You Can Dance,” 9 p.m. today, Fox. This was supposed to be the night “Dance” — one of TV’s best competitions – would start its 16th season. Then came a late decision to begin a week earlier; tonight, we get the second part of the Los Angeles auditions. That follows “Beat Shazam” at 8, with Jamie Foxx hosting and his daughter Corinne as DJ. And on Wednesday, Fox has another all-reality night — “MasterChef” is at 8 p.m., leading into the debut of “First Responders Live” at 9.
7) “Krypton” season-opener, 10 p.m. Wednesday, Syfy; also, 10:55 Thursday, 10:56 Saturday, more. This is epic TV, often as stunning visually as any DC or Marvel movie. It’s also terribly thick; you almost need to have an Encyclopedia of Geek to keep up with the dizzying changes in time, space and reality. Saving the show is Adam Strange, who came from our time and place, to preserve the future via Superman’s grandfather Seg. Adam is smart, funny, vulnerable, often quite scared and always human.
8) Much more. By summer standards, this is a huge week for scripted TV. Wednesday has two more season-openers — “Queen Sugar” at 9 p.m. on Oprah Winfrey Network, “Younger” at 10 on TV Land. One show (“A.P. Bio”) ends its run at 8:30 and 9 p.m. Thursday on NBC; another (Kevin Bacon’s “City on a Hill”) debuts at 9 p.m. Sunday on Showtime. For non-fiction, there’s baskeball, hockey, tennis … and “The Weekly” (10 p.m. Sunday, FX), with a compelling look at one baby in an immigration tangle.
9) “American Masters: Terrence McNally,” 9-10:30 p.m. Friday, PBS (check local listings). At 80, McNally remains a theater master. He’s written 19 Broadway shows (not counting revivals); he’s drawn Tony nominations for seven and won for four, plus a lifetime award. He’s ranged from the farce of “The Ritz” to the pain of “Frankie and Johnny” (now back on Broadway). He’s gone from small shows to the epic “Ragtime” musical. Here’s a terrific portrait of a Texan who has lost two lovers to AIDS, but remains optimistic and (especially) funny.
10) “All That” opener, 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Nickelodeon; reruns at midnight. For a decade, “All That” offered sketch humor from young actors, some quite talented. Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell soon had their own show; so, separately, did Amanda Bynes and Jamie Lynn Spears. Now, after a 14-year gap, it’s back with new stars and old help. Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”) and Mitchell produce; the opener has the Jonas Brothers and two of the original kids, Josh Server and Lori Beth Denberg.
