TV WORTH WATCHING:

THE COLBERT REPORT

COMEDY CENTRAL, 11:30 p.m. ET; 6/12/2013 

My favorite installments of this show are when Stephen Colbert comes face to face with a truly stellar talent, and manages to crack the veneer and get attention with some outrageous bit of mid-interview comedy business. He did it, very memorably, with Stephen Sondheim, and Aaron Sorkin, and Maurice Sendak – and tonight, I hope he does it again. Colbert’s guest, for tonight’s expanded one-hour edition: Paul McCartney.
