The 68th Annual Tony Awards Sunday at 8 p.m., CBS

This is often an entertaining night, giving you a taste of Broadway energy without having to deal with New York. Hugh Jackman (pictured) is hosting, and nominees include a number of actors known for TV work, including Bryan Cranston, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tony Shalhoub. Look for live performances by Idina Menzel, Alan Cumming, Sting, Fantasia, and Patti LaBelle on the Radio City Music Hall stage.


Bet on Your Baby Saturday at 8 p.m., ABC

Thank goodness this show is back. One season just isn’t enough when it comes to watching parents guess their toddlers’ next move in various challenges. Will he or she stack the blocks properly? How fast can he or she unroll a roll of toilet paper? Seriously, I cannot wait to find out. Kids do the darndest things.
