The most happening act on MTV right now isn't Madonna or Prince or the King of Pop, it's not a rocker or a rapper or a dancing diva. It's this manic street preacher who's pacing around the wreckage of a post-urban landscape, ranting about the NEA, pious rock stars, cocaine, unlimited room service and "Cindy Crawford eating Eskimo pies naked on the roof of the Empire State Building."He's talking fast, he's talking furious, he's fully strapped with a loaded clip of take-no-prisoners opinions.

Yes, actor / comedian Denis Leary really is that angry. It's not just an act he uses when he gets on stage, it's an attitude he wakes up with every morning. He hasn't had time to launch a national comedy tour in a while, but his latest DVD, The Complete Denis Leary: No Cure for Cancer and Lock 'N' Load, hits stores Tuesday. Leary also plays fireman Tommy Gavin on the FX drama Rescue Me, which just finished its first season. Do you ever get ticked off at people or things that really shouldn't tick you off?

As the nation continues to struggle with the meaning of 9/11, so does television reflect that tension. On Monday, TNT debuted The Grid, a limited series featuring Julianna Margulies and Dylan McDermott as one kind of new American hero, the counter-terrorism agent as crime-fighter trying to tame the international frontier of al-Qaida. Tonight comes another variation on the post-9/11 theme in the form of the wounded hero, as portrayed by Denis Leary in the new FX drama Rescue Me. The 13-week series about life inside a New York City firehouse features Leary as Tommy Gavin, a senior member of the crew trying to cope with the psychic demons of 9/11 that seem to haunt his every waking moment.

"The Ref" has a nice evil idea, borrowed from O.Henry's "Ransom of Red Chief" as, possibly, rewritten by the Marquis de Sade. Alas, it soon dissolves all this beautiful wickedness under a bucketful of good feelings. As it disappears you can almost hear its pitiful cry: "I'm melting."Neat, crisp setup: Small-time thief Denis Leary gets in bad trouble when a job in the suburbs goes wrong and, stumbling to evade the cops, he pulls his gun and carjacks a nice upscale couple in a Volvo. Further pursued, he orders them to put up at their own house.

Denis Leary isn't saying his lines precisely as written. Playing a domestic scene on a Long Island City soundstage with the actress cast as his ex-wife in FX's drama Rescue Me, Leary adds an extra word to his dialogue. First here. Then there. Then everywhere. He uses the word referring to the ex-wife's hated new boyfriend. He adds it as emphasis in addressing his fellow firefighter cousin. It's not a word you can print in a mainstream newspaper. It's hardly polite language. But it's sure Denis Leary language, as evidenced in his caustic stand-up comedy rants, in its use as a song title in his No Cure for Cancer one-man show.

Barry Levinson directed "Wag the Dog" in 29 days, and it shows: This breezy bagatelle of a film moves with the sort of gleeful alacrity that distinguishes movies made for the sheer fun of it.Thanks in large part to its crisp, unfussy tone, "Wag the Dog" never overplays its premise, which is the observation that show business and politics have become cozy to the point of indistinguishability. It simply takes that fact to its logical conclusion, presenting filmgoers with the scenario of a presidential crisis being manipulated by a shadowy campaign apparatchik and a Hollywood master showman.

If wearing patent leather shoes makes you feel slightly sinful, if you wake up Fridays with a strange hankering for fish sticks, if you still divide your transgressions into venial and mortal, it can only mean one thing:You're a survivor of Catholic school!And this is your week: Yes, that institution responsible for equal amounts of guilt and hilarity, repression and rebellion among its graduates actually has its own national week (officially, Catholic Schools Week, which began yesterday)

In the 1950s, Jack Nicholson toiled at a series of supporting roles on TV anthology dramas and episodic series. Now, in the '90s, he returns to television on his own terms, as the center-stage honoree of this year's American Film Institute Life Achievement Award. The one-hour special based on it, taped a week ago and shown tonight on CBS, is the evening's very best bet.* "Mad About You" (8-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- On this new episode, Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie (Helen Hunt) find a secret cache of letters written by a previous occupant -- a similar starting point to that presented, a few years ago, on an episode of "thirtysomething," when Hope (Mel Harris)
