Should Real Time with Bill Maher fans expect to see a brand new episode tonight on HBO?
Another busy week in politics has come to a close. The pandemic, lockdown protests, immigration bans, and Twitter threats dominated headlines. Added together, it means there are a lot of topics for Real Time with Bill Maher to discuss.
The COVID-19 outbreak continues to be the top story along with President Donald Trump’s press briefings. It remains the number one source of material for late night shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Now it is Bill Maher’s turn to weigh in on it all. There will be another new episode of Real Time tonight filmed from Maher’s home in Los Angeles. The last two weeks have resulted in Maher making headlines for his comments and interviews. Fans can expect more of the same with tonight’s guest lineup:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
California Representative and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will join Maher for an interview. It will be her 11th time on the show.
There is no topic that shouldn’t be on the table with Speaker Pelosi. The Trump administration’s pandemic response, the plan to reopen California, and the Nov. election could all come up during the interview.
But audiences will anticipate Speaker Pelosi to respond to President Trump’s words and actions. The contentious relationship between the two is well-documented and neither passes up the opportunity to take a shot at the other.
Preventive medicine expert Dr. David Katz is also scheduled to appear. He will be making his Real Time with Bill Maher debut.
Dr. Katz is the former director of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, operated by the Centers for Disease Control. Expect Dr. Katz to provide a realistic, fact-based perspective on the pandemic, when the country can “reopen,” and what the new normal will look like going forward.
Comedian and former late night host Jay Leno rounds out this week’s lineup. This will be his first time on Real Time since 2015.
According to HBO, the interview will Leno will be in person. Tune in to see if Leno and Maher keep the recommended six feet between them as they talk.
Leno could provide another comedian’s point of view on the current state of affairs. He will also be eager to promote Jay Leno’s Garage, debuting new episodes staring May 20 on CNBC.
