The fumbling cops of "Reno 911" are back for their fifth season Wednesday night (premieres 10:30 p.m. EST on Comedy Central), with more absurd chaos from the Washoe County Sheriff's Department. After last season's cliffhanger, some big questions are looming ever-present for devoted fans of the comedy series: Who's the father of Deputy Wiegel's baby? Will Garcia ever return with Lt. Dangle's husband? Featuring guest spots by George Lopez, Christina Applegate and Seth Green, this season should be another doozy.



Part 3 of the four-part series "Pioneers of Television" (8 p.m. EST, check listings) includes footage from "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "Laugh-In," followed by the second segment of three-part documentary "The Jewish Americans" (9 p.m. EST on PBS, check listings), while the conclusion of three-part miniseries "Comanche Moon" airs at 9 p.m. EST on CBS. Rich white lady drama "Cashmere Mafia" airs at 10 p.m. EST on ABC, and Discovery's new series "Smash Lab" premieres with engineers applying aviation technology to highway travel (10 p.m. EST).
