Specials

ABC and the Discovery Channel whip up a little publicity for the opening of the George Clooney seafaring adventure movie "The Perfect Storm" with a pair of tie-in specials. Vanished (8 p.m., ABC), which is a rerun, chronicles the real-life adventure of the Gloucester, Mass., fishing boat the Andrea Gail (the subject of "The Perfect Storm"), which sailed right into a humongous "storm of the century" in 1991. The Storm (9 p.m., Discovery) covers pretty much the same ground, but includes scenes from the movie. In Part 3 of The 1900 House (9 p.m., check local times, PBS), Joyce hires a maid to do the back-breaking housework; Paul enjoys having a servant to order around. A new Peter Jennings Reporting (9 p.m., ABC) special, "The Search for Jesus," offers scholars' differing interpretations of the life, words and impact of Jesus.
