Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with guests. Counterterrorism expert Malcolm Nance is the top-of-show interview guest. Historian Nancy MacLean is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are political analyst Kristen Soltis Anderson, columnist Charles Blow and political analyst Steve Schmidt.
The show is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER has already been renewed through 2020.
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 11 HBO solo specials to date, including the recent “Bill Maher Live from Oklahoma.” He is also an executive producer of the innovative news magazine show “VICE,” which is now in its sixth season on HBO.
The executive producers of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER are Bill Maher, Scott Carter, Sheila Griffiths, Dean Johnsen, Billy Martin; co-executive producer, Chris Kelly; producer, Matt Wood; co-producer, TJ Baldino; associate producer, Miles Leicher; director, Paul Casey.
