Weekend TV: D-Day special, ‘Enlisted,’ Tony Awards

D-Day in HD | History, Friday & Saturday, 9 ET/PT.

History marks the 70th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy with this two-night, four-hour special. The documentary blends rare footage, remastered in high definition, with interviews with Allied and German survivors of the battle. These World War II veterans will not be with us forever, so the opportunity to hear them share their stories is not one to pass up lightly.

Enlisted | Fox, Sunday, 7 ET/PT.

Fox continues its burn-off of this failed military comedy, which never found an audience, nor an appropriate tone. The cast is appealing, but the Gomer Pyle-style humor was too silly and out of touch with the times. Enlisted has its supporters and mourners, but not in enough numbers to revive it — so if you’re watching, you’re watching the end.

The Tony Awards | CBS, Sunday, 8 ET/PT.

The Tonys have never been the most popular of the major awards broadcasts, but they are reliably the classiest and often the most entertaining. And with Alan Cumming and Fantasia set to perform and Bryan Cranston and Neil Patrick Harris favored to win, the show — which has been reshaped to suit TV over the last few years — has even more of a TV slant than usual. If nothing else, DVR the show for the numbers from the Tony nominated After Midnight: They’ll blow you away.
