TV CRITIC’S CORNER

James Comey is coming to late-night TV. On April 17, the former FBI director who was fired by President Trump will pay a visit to “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
Why? A book, of course. Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership” arrives in stores on that very same day. The autobiography will look into “what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions,” according to the release from publisher Flatiron Books. Doesn’t sound like a tell-all, alas, although it’s hard to imagine him ignoring two major events in his career — his handling of the late-in-the-election e-mail investigation of Hillary Clinton and the events leading up to his dismissal by Trump.
“We’re going to have to get a bigger chair and I’m going to need to get a stepladder to interview the guy,” Colbert joked of the 6-foot-8 Comey.
Comey is also scheduled to appear in an ABC interview with George Stephanopoulos on April 15. Or, as Fox News put it, “Ex-FBI boss James Comey finds safe space with ABC News’ Clinton crony George Stephanopoulos.”
