Before you tune in for this weekend's tributes to the heroes of 9/11, you should know about the price many of them paid for helping in the wake of that tragedy. "9/11's Deadly Dust" (10 p.m. on A&E) follows the stories of four people who became sick after being exposed to the toxins at ground zero. Like thousands of others, they've struggled to remain healthy and live normal lives despite frustration about their symptoms and anger at the public figures who proclaimed the air safe even as plenty of others warned against any exposure to the pollutants in the area.



The two-hour season finale of "Who Wants to Be a Superhero?" airs at 9 p.m. EDT on Sci Fi, and the Killers, Gnarls Barkley and the Feeling perform on "Live From Abbey Road" (10 p.m. EDT on Sundance). Plus: "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" -- which we told you about on Wednesday -- premieres tonight at 10 p.m. EDT on Bravo.
