SDLqAmerican Ninja Warrior” (8 p.m., NBC): The fifth season kicks off tonight and I honestly hope that “flying nun chucks” is an obstacle course item and not a description of something that happens to a nun.

“The Goodwin Games” (8:30 p.m., FOX): Fans love it but, after tonight’s season finale, it looks like it might be game over for this struggling series.

“Siberia” (10 p.m., NBC): We get the chills just thinking about “Siberia.” It’s actually a drama about reality show contestants fighting to stay alive in a remote Russian territory, where things go terribly awry.
