John Waters visits Bill Maher's 'Real Time' tonight

John Waters returns to "Real Time with Bill Maher" tonight and that alone makes it appointment television. (The other guests include Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts and conservative provocateur Andrew Breitbart.) Waters and Maher bring out the best in each other: they're rarely more engaged and engaging than when they're trading droll glances and dry, streetwise repartee -- click here for the "Overtime" segment from Sept. 25, 2009, in which Waters effortlessly outshines two other formidable guests, Eliot Spitzer and Paul Krugman.

"Real Time" really is must-see TV, except it's not "TV" -- it's HBO. (So even this 2009 Overtime clip has one fairly rough outburst and one piece of strong innuendo.) Waters fans -- and Waters neophytes, too -- tune in at 10:00 p.m. and let me know on Monday what you think of his latest visit to "Real Time."
