The talk/variety series “Real Time with Bill Maher,” hosted by Bill Maher, has been running for nearly two decades now, and is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, HBO has already renewed the series to continue through 2024 and Season 21. So don’t expect Maher to leave airwaves anytime soon.
Fans of the show may be wondering – is “Real Time with Bill Maher” new tonight? Yes, “Real Time” is airing a new episode on Friday, Dec. 1. After a false start during the strike (Maher announced his intention to return without writers, got slammed for the decision, and reversed course), Maher came back on Sept. 29 after the WGA strike concluded.
The episode airs at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on HBO and streams on Max at the same time.
This week features an interview with David Mamet, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, screenwriter, and director who wrote and illustrated his newest book, “Everywhere an Oink Oink: An Embittered, Dyspeptic, and Accurate Report of Forty Years in Hollywood.” This week’s panel discussion includes Democratic strategist and co-host of the podcast “Politics War Room with James Carville and Al Hunt,” James Carville; and creator and host of the political talk show “The Rubin Report” on YouTube and BlazeTV, Dave Rubin.
