REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER returns for its 16th season FRIDAY, JAN. 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), with a replay at 12:30 a.m., exclusively on HBO. Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with guests. Author Michael Wolff is the top-of-show interview guest. Activist Saru Jayaraman is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are journalist Andrew Sullivan and comedian Larry Wilmore.
The show is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
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 ten HBO solo specials to date. He is also an executive producer of the innovative news magazine show “VICE,” which returns for its sixth season later this year on HBO.
