The gold standard of addiction shows takes a page from Celebrity Rehab, minus the tawdriness. Tonight, Tara Conner (Miss USA 2006) opens up about her descent into pills and cocaine, while NFL hero Lawrence Taylor details his harrowing obsession with crack. There's no intervention, but the pair's honesty and desire to help others definitely add up to powerful drama. Loved ones, like Taylor's ex-wife and Conner's mom, shed light too. (A&E, 9 P.M.)
