Tuesday's two "NCIS" series tell one story tonight in a crossover event.

It gets started on "NCIS" (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), when Abby's homeland security think tank is compromised and she is found in possession of a real bomb. The team discovers the leader of the group has been murdered and a theoretical terror playbook has been stolen.

And then on "NCIS: New Orleans" (9 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), McGee and Torres travel to Louisiana to partner with Pride and his team in the search for a missing homeland security theoretical terror playbook.

• Also tonight, eyewitness accounts of the 1992 FBI siege at Ruby Ridge include the daughter of Randy Weaver, the man arrested following a standoff with police, and the federal agents on the scene in an hourlong edition of "American Experience" (8 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7).

• And on "Independent Lens (11 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7), "Tower" uses animation to re-create the 1966 mass shooting at the University of Texas. It sounds crazy, but it's extremely well done and effective.
