RESCUE ME ... TONIGHT
'Rescue' gets third season
FX has picked up the Tuesday night drama for a third season of 13 episodes, it was announced yesterday.
Production on the third season will start this winter, for debut next spring. … The drama is among the network's top-rated shows, averaging 2.7 million viewers, and ranks in basic cable's top 10.
Leary hails from a Boston Irish working-class family of cops and firefighters. His cousin, a Massachusetts firefighter, was killed several years ago in a Worcester warehouse fire. And Leary lost many more friends at the World Trade Center.
"Most of the stories that we do are true stories from the last 20 years in the fire department, both funny and tragic," Leary said during an interview with the Daily News earlier this year. … The show wraps up its second season Sept. 13.
