SUNDAY

68TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS

8 p.m., CBS

Wolverine, a.k.a. Hugh Jackman, retracts his claws to host this annual celebration of Broadway’s best and brightest. Of course, as a Tony winner himself, Jackman knows his way around a song and dance, so we’re hoping he favors us with both during his opening monologue. Among those performing at the ceremony will be Tony nominee Idina Menzel, a.k.a. Adele Dazeem, who will be letting go of her “Frozen” alter ego to sing a tune from the Broadway musical she stars in, “If/Then.”

MONDAY

MURDER IN THE FIRST 10 p.m., TNT

This new series from Steven Bochco (“Hill Street Blues,” “NYPD Blue”) will cover one investigation over the course of its 10 episodes and stars photogenic homicide detectives Taye Diggs (“Private Practice”) and Kathleen Robertson (“Boss”).

TUESDAY

The carrot-topped British folk-pop star and favorite of Taylor Swift gets the documentary treatment in this film that follows him for the title’s amount of time. Both Swift and singer-songwriter-producer-hat enthusiast Pharrell Williams sit in for a spell.

WEDNESDAY

GRACELAND 10 p.m., USA

This drama about good-looking federal agents picked to live in a house where people stop acting real in order to go undercover was a nice surprise last summer with just the right amounts of grit, gloss, and, occasionally, giggles. The gang returns for season two, and this time FBI agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) is in charge.

THURSDAY

MOCKPOCALYPSE 8:30 p.m., AXS

This new comedy panel series rounds up some cut-ups to offer their topical and funny bits on music industry news and trends. The show will feature members of the comedy quintet Dr. God, the brains behind the “MOCK,” as well as other comics and actors, including Brody Stevens and Ryan Stout.

FRIDAY

CMT CROSSROADS: KATY PERRY & KACEY MUSGRAVES 10 p.m., CMT

The shiny, peppy pop star and critically acclaimed country darling team up for the 50th outing of the country music network’s usually excellent chocolate-and-peanut-butter test. Although they may seem even odder than most odd couples on this series, Perry and Musgraves both had breakthrough hits with songs about girls kissing girls.

SATURDAY

SINBAD: MAKE ME WANNA HOLLA,

9 p.m. COMEDY CENTRAL

Remember Sinbad? Affable star of “A Different World,” genial purveyor of gentle chuckles, likable short-lived talk-show host? He stars in this new comedy special shot in Detroit.
