We Have the 411 on Reno 911!

From Barney Fife to Barney Miller, cops and comedy have made hysterical bedfellows. Comedy Central's cult hit Reno 911! is proof that the bumbling-police shtick remains in fine hands. The mostly improvised series plays its Cops-like parody for plenty of white-trash gags and silly sexual innuendos. Comic Carlos Alazraqui, who plays dim-witted deputy James Garcia, took a few moments away from World Cup action to lay down the law with TVGuide.com about his screwy series arriving on DVD this week, what the new season promises, and what's up with these modern Keystone Kops hitting movie screens. TVGuide.com: So, Reno 911! — The Complete Third Season is here on DVD.Carlos Alazraqui: Yeah, and fans will love the read more

Premise: A classic varation on tic-tac-toe in which celebrities field trivia questions and play on a nine-square board. Contestants must decide whether the celeb answers are correct, but the appeal of this durable game (which has been revived, in daytime and prime time, several times) has less to do with Xs and Os than the laughs generated from the `squares.' At the start of its run in the '60s, they included Wally Cox, Rose Marie, George Gobel, Charley Weaver and, most unforgettably, Paul Lynde.
