ON TV. It was exactly one year ago that Michael Jackson died. Tonight, ABC and NBC are devoting two-hour editions of their newsmagazines to Jackson. Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, talks with NBC on ``Dateline.'' She says Michael thought some people wanted him dead. For ``20/20,'' ABC interviews people who were close to Jackson, such as his make-up artist and wardrobe manager to get an inside story of what Jackson was like. ``The Jacksons: An American Dream'' is the 1992 movie about the musical family. It's airing tonight on VH1 Classic.
