REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its landmark 20th season FRIDAY, AUGUST 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/7:00-8:00 p.m. PT). Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with guests.
The series airs on HBO and is available to stream on HBO Max.
This week features a one-on-one interview with B.J. Novak, actor, writer, and director of new film “Vengeance.” This week’s panel discussion will include Catherine Rampell, op-ed columnist at the Washington Post and political and economic commentator for CNN; and Noah Rothman, associate editor for Commentary Magazine and author of “The Rise of the New Puritans: Fighting Back Against Progressives War on Fun.”
Politico has hailed Maher as “a pugnacious debater and a healthy corrective to the claptrap of cable news,” while Variety noted, “There may not be a more eclectic guest list on all of television.”
Maher headlined his first special on the network in 1989 and has starred in 12 HBO solo specials to date. The series has been renewed through 2024.
The executive producers of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER are Bill Maher, Sheila Griffiths, Marc Gurvitz, Dean Johnsen, Billy Martin; co-executive producer, Chris Kelly; producer, Matt Wood; director, Paul Casey.
