Happy Friday, everyone! For late night television fans, they’d be happiest with a brand new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher.

Season 19 has been rolling along since it began back on Jan. 15. In typical Bill Maher fashion, the host has been in the middle of debates over former President Donald Trump’s legacy, the pandemic, and cancel culture.

Fans can anticipate Maher jumping right back in the middle of things tonight. There will be a brand new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher.

Topics with potentially covered in the monologue include the Atlanta shootings, escalating tension between President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the vaccine rollout.

Who’s on Real Time with Bill Maher tonight?

Tonight’s interview guest will be making his Real Time with Bill Maher debut. David Shor will kick things off when he chats with Bill Maher.

Shor is a data scientist and political analyst. He leads the data science division for the nonprofit research labs OpenLabs, looking at cutting edge technology used in progressive countries. Shor’s also a Senior Fellow with the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

Shor may piggyback off Maher’s commentary from last week on where U.S. stands compared to China in terms of development, infrastructure, and technological advancement. He should also share his thoughts on the future of the Democratic Party and the influence of progressives.

Journalist Nick Gillespie will be on tonight’s Real Time panel. He’s an editor at the libertarian magazine Reason “The Reason Interview” podcast.and hosts Gillespie and Shor could have some overlap as both talk about the state of the Democratic Party.

Heidi Heitkamp will also be on the panel. She served as a U.S. Senator representing South Dakota from 2013 to 2019. She is a co-founder of the One Country Project designed to engage rural communities with the Democratic Party.

It’s clear that tonight’s episode will take a hard look at Democrats and where the party stands under President Joe Biden’s leadership but with an eye on the future. Given the guest lineup, expect a lot of tough love coming from the Real Time stage.
