Real Time with Bill Maher has been on an unexpected hiatus following Bill Maher’s COVID-19 diagnosis. Will the HBO late night show return tonight?

Prior to the May 14 episode of Real Time, it was announced that Maher tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The comedian had been fully vaccinated and reported no symptoms. Still, that week’s episode was canceled as was the show on May 21. It ended Maher’s impressive streak of never missing a show, dating back to his Politically Incorrect days.

Thankfully, a new streak can start. There will be a brand new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight on HBO.

Expect Maher to recap his experience at the top of the show. It’s then likely that Maher will want to move on and catch up on some of the stories he missed over the past two weeks. Topics like Marjorie Taylor Greene’s controversial comments, states reopening, and more are on the table.

First up, Bill Maher will interview sports broadcaster Bob Costas. The journalist has covered everything from boxing and NASCAR to the NFL and the Olympics.
