The 68th Tony Awards (CBS)
Perhaps sensing that most Americans see an average of zero Broadway shows every year, The Tony Awards will feature a fourth hosting engagement for Tony winner Hugh Jackman, who has won an Emmy and been nominated for two others for previous hosting stints. If you're wondering how CBS allowed somebody other than Neil Patrick Harris to host the Tonys, the "How I Met Your Mother" star has been rather busy becoming a presumptive Tony winner this year for his "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" revival. CBS has already announced big-name presenters including Kevin Bacon, Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood, who we assume will make casual reference to his upcoming movie version of "Jersey Boys." Anyway, you may not always know the winners, but it's a good chance to feel part of the cultural conversation without dropping big money on tickets.
