You must have X11 installed in order for Wireshark to display anything, have you made sure to install the developer tools from Apple? You may be able to install this update:

Once you update to Mountain Lion (10.8) or Mavericks (10.9) you will have to install XQuartz in order to use X11.

XQuartz is available here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5293
