REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER Season Finale lineup

Real Time with Bill Maher

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER concludes its 19th season FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19 (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 author of “Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World” whose new special “China's Iron Fist” debuts November 21 on CNN and CNN International, Fareed Zakaria. This week’s in-studio panel discussion will include former governor of New Jersey and author of the new book, “Republican Rescue: Saving the Party from Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and the Dangerous Policies of Joe Biden,” Chris Christie; and retired police officer, current Brooklyn Borough President, and Mayor-Elect of New York City, Eric Adams.


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.
