“Bill Maher’s irreverent wit and fearless insights make him the perfect observer for these unpredictable times,” noted Michael Lombardo, president, HBO programming. “I’m delighted that we can continue to offer an uncensored forum for his original and thoughtful humor.”
The talk show, picked up through 2014 as part of Maher’s new three-year deal with the network, includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with in-studio and satellite guests. It even has some big name supports, like Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane, who hailed it as “hands down the funniest show on TV” in an issue of Rolling Stone, adding, “It surprises me more than any other show I watch.”
So if you love what you’re seeing from Bill Maher, stay tuned, because there’s at least two more years worth of surprises in store for us all!
Real Time with Bill Maher airs Fridays at 10 PM live ET/tape-delayed PT on HBO.
