‘Reno’ cops 3rd season

Laffer is the third-highest-rated original series on net

Comedy Central has ordered a third cycle of “Cops” spoof “Reno 911!”

Cabler will bow 13 half-hours in the summer. Jersey Television produces the show in association with Comedy Central.

Second season premiered to 2 million viewers and averaged a healthy 1.6 million.

Show is the third-highest-rated original series on Comedy Central behind “South Park” and “Chappelle’s Show.”

“In the first season, ‘Reno 911!’ was the funniest show you’ve never seen. Now people are talking about it and quoting characters,” Comedy Central development veep Jim Sharp said. “The show just keeps growing.”

Series star-showrunner Thomas Lennon said he’s looking forward to a third season because “Comedy Central granted us unlimited creative freedom with the show and because contractually it puts us one season closer to a Dave Chapelle-style renegotiation.”

Co-stars Robert Ben Garant and Kerri Kenney-Silver serve as showrunners-exec producers. Danny DeVito, John Landgraf, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher also exec produce.
