USA TODAY - What's worth watching, and what might not be, in prime time on Monday.

Sleepy Hollow | Fox, 8 ET/PT

So here's the downside of the network's growing adoption of the cable short-season model: Sleepy Hollow is vanishing tonight, after just 13 outings. That's probably good for the show creatively, but it will be tough on fans of this steadily improving drama. The two-hour finale finds Ichabod and Abbie (the well-teamed Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie) discovering a secret in George Washington's bible that shifts the show's battle between good and demonic evil. Don't worry, the battle will go on: Hollow will be back next season.

Klondike | Discovery, 9 ET/PT

Discovery makes a propitious first step into the scripted-TV arena with this three-night miniseries, a rousing, old-fashioned adventure set against the 1897 Alaskan gold rush. There isn't much new in this northern Western, but the scenery is lovely, the acting is solid, and the mix of characters is just what you'd expect from the genre, from the young hero (Richard Madden) and his real-life sidekick (Johnny Simmons as Jack London), to the outsized villain (Tim Roth) and the smart woman playing both sides of the fence (Abbie Cornish). There's violence - it was a violent time - but it isn't excessive or gratuitous, which is a welcome relief. Dig in.

Mom | CBS, 9:30 ET/PT

Mom gets a dad, as Kevin Pollak guests tonight as Christy's father. He shows up in an episode that finds Christy and Bonnie coming clean about some of their secrets.
