5 Shows After Dark
"Missing" on ABC at 8:00pm ET.
"Behind the Music: Aaliyah" on VH1 at 9:00pm ET. Pretty sure this is one you'll want to have your tissues ready for.
"Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey" on PBS at 9:00pm ET. Featuring behind the scenes looks at "Sesame Street" and the Jim Henson workshop for all you muppet lovers out there.
"Scandal" on ABC at 10:02pm ET. Series premiere. Following "Grey's Anatomy" tonight is Shonda Rhimes's latest attempt at a new show. I was going to say it was her third such attempt at capturing whatever lightening "Grey's" has in a bottle, but I think I may have completely hallucinated a show about sexy young lawyers lawerying sexily with each other that I swore she was involved with that has since gone off the air. In any case, she did executive produce that show "Off the Map" that only existed for five episodes but "Private Practice" is still going strong so I guess her track record is good. "Scandal" stars Kerry Washington, who looks quite fetching in a nice dress.
Genevieve Burgess has two degrees and far too much time on her hands.
