More from Deadline

The show runs on HBO on Friday evenings, but CNN has been tinkering with its weekend schedule. It’s the latest bit of corporate synergy between the Warner Bros. Discovery networks.

Amy Entelis, CNN executive vice president of talent, CNN Originals and creative development for CNN Worldwide., said in a statement, “The addition of Real Time With Bill Maher to CNN’s weekend primetime lineup marks the start of a commitment and investment into topical entertainment programming that we’re bringing to the weekends. We’ve seen that audiences enjoy Bill’s perspective and approach to news and information, and we’re looking forward to the show now being on CNN.”

CNN already had been airing Real Time Overtime, featuring extended online conversation, on Friday evenings. Those will be discontinued although Overtime segments will still be available on YouTube.

HBO recently renewed Real Time for two more seasons, through 2026.
