Best bets on TV this week

Tonight
"Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls" is a new reality series that has the famed adventurer putting contestants through a rugged wilderness challenge in New Zealand. Fortunately, we can watch in cushy comfort from our couches. 9 p.m., NBC.
Tuesday
On "Two American Families," the latest offering from "Frontline," Bill Moyers tells the story of two families in Milwaukee struggling to avoid sliding into poverty. The program raises provocative questions about the changing nature of the U.S. economy and the fate of a declining middle class. 10 p.m., PBS.
A new season of "Storage Wars New York" kicks off with an episode that has the buyers heading to Trenton, N.J. Chris and Tad find some fireworks there, but wind up getting no bang for their buck. 9 p.m., A&E.
Wednesday
"The Bridge" is a superlative new drama series starring Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir as police detectives working opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. 10 p.m. Wednesday, FX.
In the comic-drama "Camp," Rachel Griffiths stars as a recently divorced woman struggling to keep a cash-strapped family summer camp afloat. High jinks and hilarity supposedly ensue. 10:01 p.m., NBC.
Thursday
Jane Lynch is our host for "Hollywood Game Night." It's a new series that has civilian contestants combining with celebrities like Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow in a spirited round of pop culture-inspired party games. 10 p.m., NBC.
Friday
On "Magic City," Ike considers a risky deal with mob boss Sy Berman (James Caan). And if TV has taught us anything, it's that risky deals with mobsters usually don't turn out so well. 9 p.m., Starz.
More absurdity is coming our way on Season 2 of "Comedy Bang! Bang!" In the opener, Scott welcomes Sarah Silverman and Reggie takes the day off. 10 p.m., IFC.
Saturday
Bad guys (and gals) had better watch out. "Beware the Batman" is a stylish new computer-animated series that has the DC Comics superhero returning in fine form to kick butt and do good. 10 a.m., Cartoon Network.
