Police farce back on beat

The "Cops" parody "Reno 911" (9:30 p.m., Comedy Central) returns for a second season.

Filled with veterans of the Comedy Central programs "Viva Variety" and "The State," "Reno" will feature a virtual parade of guest stars this season, including Wayne Brady, Lou Ferrigno, Lorenzo Lamas, Martin Mull, Kenny Rogers and Sean Young.

  • Court TV glances back at the case that put the network on the map. Ten years after the murders, the gruesome discovery, the Bronco chase, the courthouse pandemonium, the "dream team" and the shocking acquittal, "People v. Simpson: Unfinished Business" (7 p.m., Court) will devote an hour to the key events and personalities associated with "the trial of the century."

At 8 p.m., Court TV correspondent Catherine Crier will conduct a live interview with O.J. Simpson.
