What should Real Time with Bill Maher fans expect to see tonight on HBO?

Friday already got off to a very interesting start, to say the least. Late-night fans typically prefer to end the day with Real Time with Bill Maher so what should audiences expect to see tonight?

The country woke up to the news that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19. It comes just days after the first presidential debate in which President Trump’s pandemic record was challenged and he mocked former Vice President Joe Biden for constantly wearing a mask.

The president’s health will dominate the news today and into the evening, even as late-night television shows pick up the coverage. It will be interesting to see how comedians handle the sensitive issue of the president’s health balanced against how he’s handled COVID-19 while in office.

Is Real Time with Bill Maher new tonight?

Bill Maher will not be among those who weigh in tonight. There will not be a new episode of Real Time on HBO.

Late-night fans will have to turn to Jimmy Kimmel Live! or The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as they will be the only shows broadcasting new episodes tonight.

Maher tweeted along with the first presidential debate so his fans already have an idea of how he felt. It’s possible he’ll share his thoughts on today’s news so be sure to follow him @billmaher.
