1) Tony Awards, 8-11 p.m. ET, CBS. For the first time in three years, here’s a full-scale Tonycast, with glimpses of Broadway’s best. There will be performances from all six nominated musicals and from two of the nominated revivals,. That includes the music of Stephen Sondheim (“Company,” shown here),, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan and more, performed by Hugh Jackman, Sutton Foster, Billy Crystal and others. Ariana DeBose, the “West Side Story” Oscar-winner, hosts; other performers include Billy Porter, Bernadette Peters, the New York Gay Men’s Chorus and the original cast of “Spring Awakening.”
2) “Dark Winds” opener, 9 p.m., AMC. The opening minutes are spectacular – a daytime robbery in small-town New Mexico, complete with helicopter escape. Then things slow to a Southwestern pace. Joe Leaphorn leads the Navajo tribal police, aided by two sergeants – one a newcomer who’s eyed suspiciously. This is 1971, with no easy solutions; people plod through the sprawling land. The first four episodes are terrific, with deep characters; the last two descend into melodrama and repetition, but it’s still a worthy effort.
3) ”Duncanville,” 9 and 9:30 p.m., Fox. On a night when even ABC’s game shows are reruns, it’s refreshing to have two new episodes of this cartoon comedy. In the first, there’s another fake funeral for Stan, who is Annie’s brother. In the second, Kimberly is babysitting for Bradley – and discovers his mother’s therapy files; now a teen-ager has access to secrets about many of the town’s residents.
4) “Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal” conclusion, 9 and 10 p.m. ET,. CNN, rerunning at midnight and 1 a.m. Last week’s opener ended with the White House hoping to survive the fall-out from the arrest of Watergate burglars. But now John Dean has a fateful meeting with Nixon, then delivers key testimony. In the second hour, news that Nixon taped his conversations breaks things wide open. Another Watergate view will be on CBS this Friday (June 17) … the 50th anniversary of the arrests.
5) ALSO: Another Watergate-themed show concludes. “Gaslit” views the crisis through Martha Mitchell, played by Julia Roberts. That’s 9 p.m. on Starz, followed by the debut of “Becoming Elizabeth” (about Queen Elizabeth I) at 9:04 p.m. and the season-opener of “P-Valley: at 10:6. Also, “Barry” has its season-finale at 10 p.m. on HBO, surrounded by “The Time Traveler’s Wife” at 9 and ”The Baby” at 10:30.
