What to watch on Tuesday, September 2...

8pm, ABC
The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic
Just when you had finally gotten "Let it Go" out of your head, along comes this behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Oscar winning film, featuring interviews with stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel as well as the design and animation teams. Also included: a preview of Disney's upcoming Big Hero 6.

In Part 2, Houdini contends with both spiritualist frauds and the 20th century's displacement of the Industrial Age. And possibly also sharknados? I don't want to tell you how to do your jobs, History Channel, but sharknados are big with the kids these days. Think about it.

Royal Pains
While Hank and Evan hunt for the vanished Emma, Divya hits a speed bump in her custody fight. Elsewhere in "Ganging Up," Paige and Evan learn surprising news about Bob, Boris fears his illness is worsening, Jeremiah decides to make a few ch-ch-changes, and Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick somehow find a way to guest-star as themselves.

Rizzoli & Isles
Jane tries to clear a bigshot prosecutor who is booked for murder in "Burden of Proof." On the homefront, Angela prepares Maura for meeting Jack's daughter by sharing the lowdown on today's youths.

9pm, El Rey
“Everything Old Is New Again” finds Tony and Angela in hot pursuit of the perpetrators of a shocking act. Meanwhile, Galan learns more about the big picture, and Samuel learns more about Tony's past.

10pm, Ovation
A Young Doctor’s Notebook & Other Stories
The old doctor pays a visit and declares his desire to write an opera, no doubt inspired by the moving Opera House sequence in Final Fantasy VI. Elsewhere, the young doctor is torn between two paramours, and Pelageya takes ill.

10pm, MTV
Finding Carter
Grant and Taylor are incensed as Elizabeth goes to extremes to find her daughter in "Love Story." I mean, like, super mad, you guys. Like, there's steam coming out of Grant's ears, and Taylor is this close to morphing into big green Lou Ferrigno.

Pickled portraits of America’s First Ladies cover Frances Cleveland, the youngest presidential spouse in U.S. history; Edith Wilson, who took the country’s reins in the wake of Woodrow’s stroke; and Dolley Madison, who saved priceless artifacts from destruction during the burning of the White House in 1814.
