When skimming the Sunday paper's tv section, I believe I saw that a show 
called "The Who: 30 Years of Maximum R&B" is to be aired on Saturday night, 
August 13 on WQED in Pittsburgh (a PBS station).  You should probably check 
your local listings, since PBS stations usually set their own schedules. :-)

As mentioned, A&E's "In Concert" is showing clips of Pete doing a live set 
somewhere.  (Only a portion of the show is devoted to Pete; others include 
James Taylor and Lindsey Buckingham.)  The spots I saw included him doing "A 
Little is Enough" and I think it was "You Better You Bet."  His voice seemed 
pretty weak.  "In Concert" airs Thursday nights (definately) and 
repeats Sunday mornings (I think).
