ON AND OFF THE AIR:* If he can tone down his own stuff when talking to guests a little, comedian Dennis Miller will represent a nice new alternative for late night TV.On the strength of its first few outings this week (at 12:30 a.m. on WBAL-Channel 11 and 11 p.m. on Washington's WDCA-Channel 20), "The Dennis Miller Show" is fast and funny and seems a little less plug-filled than the usual talk-fest.Miller, whose mock news reports on "Saturday Night Live" were the sharpest part of many a show, is as satirical a comedy commentator as you can find on TV. He has promised the Friday night editions of his show will include his newscast feature.

LOS ANGELES -- Sweet as strychnine, affable as hemlock, Dennis Miller joins the swelling ranks of talk-show hosts tonight as the only one who looks like he sleeps in a coffin.His natural audience?"Cynical, narcoleptic people," Mr. Miller said in an interview last week.His on-air guests?"Heavy emphasis on mime," Mr. Miller said, heavy emphasis on sarcasm. "I also want to have Joan Van Ark on and find out how much she's jogging this week."After Mr. Miller's six years on the Weekend Update feature of "Saturday Night Live," most people have figured out whether they'd rather applaud him or flog him.In most cities, Mr. Miller's hourlong show will provide counterpoint to "The Tonight Show" and Arsenio Hall.

Really, why all the fuss over Dennis Miller on "Monday Night Football"? Al Michaels will do play-by-play, Dan Fouts will provide analysis, and Miller will add levity. Sort of like Dandy Don in his prime. Network executives are a cynical, detestable lot, and the hiring of Miller might be nothing more than a desperate attempt by ABC Sports to make "MNF" edgier than the World Wrestling Federation's "Monday Night Raw." Still, producer Don Ohlmeyer had a point when he said that football "is not played in St. Patrick's Cathedral."

No more than 15 seconds into the teleconference, everyone knew ESPN hadn't gone the easy route and picked Dennis Miller off a rack marked comedians to host its Excellence in Sports Performance Awards show next Thursday (9-11:30 p.m.).A very funny guy, yes, but the former "Saturday Night Live" mainstay and former late-night talk show host turns out to be a huge sports fan, too. Two for the price of one.For instance, out of the blue he blurted out the starting lineup of the Houston team with Elvin Hayes that opposed the UCLA team with Lew Alcindor in the famed Astrodome TV game in the late '60s.

You could call the comedy of Dennis Miller "comedary." For "Saturday Night Live's" resident news anchorman fits within the tradition of Mort Sahl, Lenny Bruce and George Carlin as ......TC serious social commentator who happens to use humor.In his second special for the HBO premium service premiering tonight at 10, the targets of Miller's caustic observations are all over the place. Among many, they include other comedians, Washington's Marion Barry, anti-fur activists, President Bush, Vice President Dan Quayle, Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis, the reunited Germany, the New Kids on the Block, West Virginia and Louisiana, white men who try to fast dance, TV evangelists and other video advertisers, and NASA.

Versus, the sports cable channel you keep clicking past, now can call itself more than just the home of the NHL. Starting next month, it will be the home of the NHL and Dennis Miller. Sports Unfiltered with Dennis Miller will air Tuesday nights at 10, starting Nov. 6. For those who haven't heard much of Miller since he was booted from Monday Night Football, he has become something of a conservative answer to Bill Maher. Politics aside, his rants also seemed entertaining to me. And he'll be on Versus, so he probably can rant about practically anything without many people noticing.

Dennis Miller has this wacky idea that he seems convinced is going to make an immediate hit of his new syndicated late-night talk effort, "The Dennis Miller Show," which premieres tonight (12:30 a.m., Channel 11).He's going to be himself."I figure that I'm better at being me than anyone else," says the 38-year-old former "Weekend Update" anchor from "Saturday Night Live.""The people who like me say I'm hip, the people who don't say I'm smug. But at least I'm something. If you have an attitude, people tend to pay attention."

Dennis Miller may not be the most imaginative title for the comedian's new CNBC current affairs-talk series, premiering tomorrow night at 9, but it is informational, and it will fit neatly into one of those tiny rectangles in the TV-listings grids. Besides, The Last Angry Man and Me and the Chimp, catchier and more apt, had already been used. Chimp? There's a chimp? Yes, there is -- in part to balance out Miller's vitriolic tendencies and remind viewers that he isn't taking politics or most any other topic besides war too seriously, even if he sounds as if he does.

Everyone who follows TV knows well the "what" of Dennis Miller, as in what he's done over the past decade or so - and it's quite the laundry list: Saturday Night Live; a syndicated talk show; an Emmy Award-winning program for HBO; Monday Night Football commentator; Fox News Channel essayist; bit acting parts here and there (including a current cameo on Fox's fast-fading Boston Public). And, starting in January, a four-night-a-week talk-show gig on CNBC, which will probably air at 9 p.m. What everyone does not know particularly well is the "who" of Miller.

Grandfather's Garden Center has been sitting at Route 108 and Phelps Luck Drive in Long Reach for 18 years and has long been considered an eyesore by some local residents. And now that the land on which it sits could be developed, they fear what could rise in its place. For years, the garden center property has been governed by covenants that restricted it to agricultural use and allowed for only one residence. But those restrictions could be lifted, making residential development possible.
