It's been nearly 20 years since the lamely lascivious sitcom "Three's Company" ended its eight-season run on ABC, and it's reportedly been equally as long since two of the show's original cast mates, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers, last spoke to one another. The silent streak doesn't figure to be broken after Somers gets a gander at tonight's purported expose on the series. "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Three's Company' " (9-11 p.m.

"Three's Company" lusts only in its heart. It's obsessed with sex, yet nobody ever seems to actually have it. Chrissy and Janet have to pretend their roommate Jack is gay so their prudish landlord, Mr. Roper, will let them live there. He doesn't want any "hanky-panky" (though the sex-starved Mrs. Roper would welcome it). 1977's "A Man About the House" (May 21 at 5:30 a.m. on TBS), the series' first episode, shows how they got into that unlikely situation.

Three hours before the start of Sunday's NBA game between the Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Bobcats, it was easy to notice the presence of law enforcement officials outside The Palace of Auburn Hills. On every corner there were uniformed policemen; at every gate, more than one guard greeted fans, who numbered 22,076. Once inside the arena, people had to clear a security stop that included a metal detector and bag check.

Doug Haverty and Adryan Russ' "Roleplay" premiered at the Group Repertory Theatre in 1989 and went on to a successful off-Broadway run in New York. Now it's back at Group Rep with a new name, "Reaching Up," and it's as bright and listenable as it was the first time around. With a book by Haverty and music by Russ (lyrics are by both), it plays fluidly over a series of meetings of a women's encounter group run by the understanding and encouraging Grace (Irene Chapman).
