Robert De Niro Jr., left, remembers his artist father.

Father and son

The star of “Raging Bull” and “Taxi Driver” isn’t known for showing his emotional vulnerability in his personal life, but he does an admirable job of letting it all out in “Remembering the Artist Robert De Niro, Sr.,” a surprisingly honest documentary about the late visual artist whose work was displayed beside the likes of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko before personal problems and changing trends made him nearly obsolete. You can hear the admiration, frustration and regret in the son’s emotional narration. It’s the poignant film that provides the perfect way to start treasuring Father’s Day next Sunday. 8 p.m. Monday, HBO

That’s entertainment!

“The 68th Annual Tony Awards,” which promise to be livelier than the Oscars, welcomes back Hugh Jackman as host with musical performances from Idina Menzel, Alan Cumming, Neil Patrick Harris and Sting. Among the potential highlights: a celebration of the 10th anniversary of “Wicked.” 7 p.m. Sunday, WCCO, Ch. 4

The chase is on

We’re coming up on a fairly bizarre milestone: the 20th anniversary of accused murderer O.J. Simpson leading police on a crazy adventure down the Los Angeles freeway. “CNN Special Report: O.J. Bronco Chase” takes us back to June 17, 1994, when the nation was riveted to TV screens. 8 p.m. Tuesday, CNN

Miss Congeniality

“Guys Choice,” a show that celebrates everything from “Hottest Couple” to “Most Dangerous Man,” presents its annual “Decade of Hotness” award to Sandra Bullock. Just a decade? The voters need to go back and rewatch “Speed,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Kevin Hart, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Chrissy Teigen are among the celebs making appearances. 8 p.m. Wednesday, Spike
