Real Time with Bill Maher

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its 19th season FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22 (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 is available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max. 

This week features a one-on-one, in-studio interview with Director of UC Berkeley's Food Labor Research Center, President of One Fair Wage, and author of “One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America,” Saru Jayaraman. This week’s in-studio panel discussion will include founder of the Forward Party and author of “Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy,” Andrew Yang; and New York Times newsletter opinion writer and author of” Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America,” John McWhorter.

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. 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.
