This week's TV Movies




Clothes make the man, but “The Cape” makes an ex-cop (David Lyons) a superhero in this action drama. James Frain (“The Tudors”) and Summer Glau (“Firefly”) play the requisite super-villain and crusading female journalist, respectively. (NBC, 9 p.m.)

Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall: “Fargo’s” William H. Macy puts the “ne’er” in “ne’er-do-well” as a Windy City wino in the new dipsomaniacal-daddy, dysfunctional-family dramedy “Shameless.” Emmy Rossum costars. (Showtime, 10 p.m.) 


The rubber-faced antics of Jim Carrey in comedies like “Ace Ventura” made him a mint, but it’s likely more serious turns in films such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “The Number 23” (above) are what earned him a seat on a new “Inside the Actors Studio.” (Bravo, 8 p.m.) 


In this corner, down-on-his-luck former champ Patrick “Lights” Leary (Holt McCallany), trying to fight the good fight inside and outside the ring in the new boxing-themed drama “Lights Out.” Stacy “Fat City” Keach also stars. (FX, 10 p.m.) 


You caught the “True Grit” reboot and the late-in-the-game sci-fi sequel “Tron Legacy” but still want more of Oscar winner Jeff Bridges? The man, or rather, “The Dude” himself (pictured below) is profiled on the season premiere of “American Masters.” (KOCE, 8 p.m.) 


The most successful secret societies are the ones you never hear about … then there’s the Bohemian Grove. What really goes on at this sequoia-shrouded, elites-only Northern California retreat? “Brad Meltzer’s Decoded” wants to know. (History, 10 p.m.) 


Everyone’s a critic — thanks a lot, Internet — but only members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association get a say at the “16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.” The balletic “Black Swan” tops the ballot with 12 nominations. (VH1, 9 p.m.) 


There she is: Caressa Cameron will be on hand to help crown her successor at the “2011 Miss America Pageant,” celebrating its 90th anniversary. Brooke Burke and “The Bachelor’s” Chris Harrison host the proceedings in Las Vegas. (ABC, 9 p.m.)
