T. Rex Autopsy (9 p.m., National Geographic Channel) – This special combines biology with paleontology to explore the guts and glory of the T. rex, using state-of-the-art special effects to present the realistic dissection of a 46-foot creature who lived 65 million years ago.

Also on tonight . . .

Tony Awards (8 p.m., CBS) – The show is hosted this year by past winners Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming. Always a fun broadcast, it’s a chance for those of us not hitting up shows in New York City every season to see bits of the best stuff on Broadway, performed by original casts. The nominees for Best Musical this year are “An American in Paris,” “Something Rotten,” “Fun Home” and “The Visit.” Best play nominees are “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” “Hand to God,” “Disgraced” and “Wolf Hall.” Helen Mirren, Bradley Cooper, Elisabeth Moss, Bill Nighy, Chita Rivera and Ken Watanabe are just a few of the nominated actors you may recognize. And “The King and I” is a favorite for Best Musical Revival, so here’s to hoping we’ll get a peek at that.

Game of Thrones (9 p.m., HBO) – Stannis faces a difficult decision, and Mace visits the Iron Bank.

Nurse Jackie (9 p.m., Showtime) – Jackie and Zoey set out on an unexpected road trip to aid Grace, which gives Zoey a great chance to confront her frustration with Jackie.

Married to Medicine (9 p.m., Bravo) – Season 3 starts with Toya’s husband telling her to bury the hatchet with Simone.
