Now that Comedy Central has canceled "Reno: 911!", the Biggest Little City in the World has launched a campaign to save it. Via Facebook, Twitter and SaveReno911.com, Reno tourism officials are waging an effort to bring the show back -- even though it didn't really paint Reno in the most flattering light.

"Has it been uncomfortable at times for the city? Yes. But there's so much noise going on in the world, it's important to be part of the conversation," says Michael Thomas, marketing director for the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority. "Besides, we have a sense of humor here. We don't mind being the brunt of a joke."
