    pbs

    Great Performances: Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!”

    Friday, 9 p.m., Channel 2

    Before the adamantium claws, before he was “Miserables,” before he hunted monsters and taught robots to box, Aussie heartthrob Hugh Jackman was busy shooing chicks and geese and ducks away from his surrey with the fringe on top as Curly McLain in this 1998 Royal National Theatre production of the classic musical about the Sooner state. Keep an eye out for Tony winner Shuler Hensley, who gives a moving performance as the doomed Jud Fry.

    Tanked  Friday 10 p.m., Animal Planet

    “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan has already gone for one dunk with the Acrylic Tank Manufacturing guys — builders of eye-popping custom aquariums — and he had so much fun he’s back. Morgan now needs a watery domicile for his octopus. Because of course Tracy Morgan has an octopus. The job is so big that Brett and Wayde need to move in with him for a few days. Perhaps Grizz and Dotcom will lend a hand?
