Are you sure .tk just isn't down again? They have a track reccord for a slow / unreliable service.

I have the same problem, and I also have RoadRunner. I'd say its a safe bet that Road Runner cant access .tk sites.

It could be. I don't usually go to .tk websites but every time i have tried it has never worked.

I used to be able to visit .tk sites, but since recently none of them work for me.

What happens is that when you register a new domain, the name server information has to filter through the WHOIS database, which takes a few hours at least. Then the ISPs download the WHOIS database every few hours (or so) and update their own servers. If your ISP hasn't updated their database in a long time, the newest registered or changed domains will not show up when you request them. If this is happening on more than one .tk domain, then it's probably just the .tk server down. As Trekker said, they are pretty unreliable.
