NEWS FLASH: Giffords' husband on '20/20' Tuesday night

Diane Sawyer scores TV news' big "get" for January.

On Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC's special 20/20, she'll talk with Mark Kelly, the astronaut husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was shot through the head Jan. 8 in the Tucson assassination attempt that claimed six other lives.

The hour, titled "The Congresswoman and the Astronaut: An American Story of Love and Strength," plays to all sides of the appeal equation -- romance, politics, achievement, tragedy, heroism, medicine and more.

ABC sent out a Monday morning press release that included quotes, so Sawyer's chat with Kelly seems to have taken place on Sunday. [Photo above is by Ralph Freso/ABC.]

Video from the interview will be teased by ABC on Tuesday's Good Morning America and World News With Diane Sawyer, with additional footage on that night's Nightline.

"The Congresswoman and the Astronaut" preempts ABC's scheduled new episode of Detroit 1-8-7. It's up against new installments of CBS' The Good Wife and NBC's Parenthood, as well as FX's Lights Out and USA's White Collar.
