Real Time with Bill Maher took last week so will it be two in a row or will the show return tonight?

If you rely on Real Time with Bill Maher to help close out your week every Friday night, then chances are you were a little thrown off last week. The show took the night off, leaving fans without Bill Maher’s unique take on the news.

It wasn’t exactly the best week to be absent, either. A redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. Everyone from the White House to late night gave an opinion on the report and whether it was a victory for President Donald Trump or the beginning of the end.

Perhaps Maher and the rest of Real Time just wanted a little extra time to go over the report before putting together a show or asking any guests to comment on what was in Mueller’s findings. So now with that time behind him, will Bill Maher return with a new episode tonight?

Thankfully the answer is yes. There will be a new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO tonight. And it is shaping up to be another must-watch show based not only on the topics but the guest lineup.

The top-of-show guest is Representative Adam Schiff. Schiff has made himself a favorite target of President Trump for his relentless criticism of the administration. The Congressman from California has already appeared on Real Time this season but that doesn’t mean he won’t have anything new to say.

The mid-show interview will feature legendary sports broadcaster Bob Costas. It will be his seventh time on Maher’s show. Earlier this year, Costas ended his professional relationship with NBC that was reportedly due in part to comments by Costas on concussions.

Maher’s roundtable of guests will feature an interesting group of individuals. Fans will hear from political analysts John Avlon and Zerlina Maxwell as well as tax-reform advocate Grover Norquist.
