We have come to the end of yet another busy, eventful week. Can fans count on Real Time with Bill Maher to end things on a high note?

The biggest story of the week remains Senator Ted Cruz and his ill-advised trip to Mexico during a statewide crisis in Texas. While thousands were without heat and power, Sen. Cruz decided to get away to Cancun for a few days before the intense scrutiny forced him to reverse course. Late night TV was especially harsh on Sen. Cruz.

Of course, there is still the pandemic and vaccine rollout from the Biden administration. And the Republican Party is still trying to right the ship in the aftermath of the impeachment trial. Should fans expect Bill Maher to weigh in on these topics and more tonight?

Sadly, that will not be an option. There will not be a new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight. It joins a list of other late night shows such as The Late Show and Late Night that are off this week.
