America's Music: the Roots of Country (TBS, 7-9 p.m.): This detailed look at the 75-year history of country music is a gold mine of more than 200 interviews - everyone from Bill Carlisle, the oldest living performer of the Grand Ole Opry, to country legend Roy Rogers, to more recent artists like the Mavericks and Kathy Mattea. The documentary continues June 9 and 16.

The 50th Annual Tony Awards (CBS, 9-11 p.m.): Leading the nominations for theater's most prestigious awards are two musicals that recently made the big move to Broadway: "Rent" and "Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk." Tony nominee Nathan Lane hosts the awards ceremony from the Majestic Theatre in New York.


The Last Frontier (FOX, 8:30-9 p.m.): This new comedy has chosen a unique setting - Anchorage, Alaska - but it's otherwise routine fare about three single guys who end up with a woman as their fourth roommate. FOX also premires another show tonight: L.A. Firefighters (FOX, 9-10 p.m.), a drama about the people of Station 132, who bring their different backgrounds and varied beliefs to a high-pressure, harsh setting. Of interest is one of the ensemble characters, J.B. Baker (Brian Leckner), who often leans on his spiritual beliefs and turns to the Bible while he's on the job.


The Return of the Borrowers (TNT, 8-10 p.m.): The Borrowers, tiny people who "borrow" from unwitting humans, had their debut in Mary Norton's novels for children. They've been on the small screen in "The Borrowers," a collaboration between the BBC and TNT, and now they're back for more creative, lighthearted adventures of narrow escapes and near misses.
