What to watch this weekend
•Among a host of news specials commemorating the 60th anniversary of the World War II invasion of Normandy, Discovery offers D-Day: Reflections of Courage (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/PT). Produced with the BBC, the special uses archival footage, photos and interviews to tell the story of the battle that paved the way for the Allied victory.
•There is glory, or at least fun, in artistic failure if you fail on a grand enough scale. That, at least, is the theory behind Trio’s Flops 101: Lessons From the Biz (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/PT), a one-hour documentary that revisits such cultural disasters as Central Park West, Coupling,Waterworld and Ishtar.
•Sure, Bette Midler has seen her share of movie flops, but she has always had the talent and guts to bounce back. She’ll discuss the ups and downs of a great career on Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo, Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/PT).
•Hugh Jackman hosts Broadway’s big TV night, The Tony Awards (CBS, Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/PT). And if he doesn’t win one himself for The Boy From Oz, you can color the theater world shocked.
•Here’s good news for fans of The Dead Zone (USA, Sunday, 10 p.m. ET/PT). The show is back for a third season.
