Bryan Cranston, Neil Patrick Harris and Audra McDonald were among Tuesday's Tony Awards nominees.
Cranston received a nod for his portrayal of President Lyndon Johnson in All the Way, which also nabbed a Best Play nomination, while McDonald was recognized for her lead performance in the play Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill.
Harris, who has hosted the Tonys four times and won three Emmys for doing so, scored a nomination for playing the title character in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a nominee for Best Revival of a Musical. (Watch videos of Harris here.)
A week ago, I was raving about FX's inspired reinvention of Fargo from movie to TV series. But this week, we get a cautionary reminder that there are movies that just shouldn't be adapted for TV.

Hulu announed Wednesday its 2014 original programming slate, which includes new original series starring Reaper's Tyler Labine and Happy Endings' Casey Wilson, as well as new seasons of such returning shows as Seth Meyers' The Awesomes and Chris O'Dowd's Moone Boy.

It can't be easy to learn that one's ancestor is a literal horse's ass. But sad-sack Londoner Tom Chadwick takes such news in stride, again quite literally, as he acquires his great-grandfather's horse costume from a long-ago pantomime show, and after trying the rear end on for size, adds it to his collection of quirky family keepsakes.
HBO's droll-to-the-point-of-precious and occasionally delightful Family Tree (Sunday, 10:30/9:30c) follows Tom on an offbeat personal odyssey into his cloudy lineage. "In our clan, family is what disappears when you're not looking at it," says his retired dad, who keeps busy inventing useless objects like a fan for shoe trees. The dad is played by Michael McKean, who like the rest of the cast often talks directly into the camera, mock-documentary/improvisation style. The casting and the format are two of the more obvious signs that Tree is a Christopher Guest production.
