Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with guests. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich is the top-of-show interview guest. Athlete Marshawn Lynch is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are radio host Erick Erickson, former Mass. Rep. Barney Frank and columnist Catherine Rampell.
The show is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER has 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.
