Series

Behind the Music (9 p.m., VH1) reruns its profile of Stevie Nicks. The booze, the dope, Lindsey Buckingham -- "Behind the Music" doesn't get any better than this. Followed by a rerun of Nicks in performance on Storytellers (10 p.m., VH1). Will & Grace (9:30 p.m., NBC) reruns the second part of the episode where Grace goes out with Will's brother. On a rerun of ER (10 p.m., NBC), Doug Ross makes a move that will come back to haunt him when he gives experimental pain medication to a patient who isn't part of the program. The replacement series Vanished (10 p.m., ABC), a production of ABC's news department, looks at real-life missing persons cases. So now what are they going to show on "20/20" every week?
