Late-night TV fans know that if it’s Friday, it’s time for Real Time with Bill Maher. What should audiences expect to see tonight on HBO?
Bill Maher is coming off a week in which he discussed police reform with Killer Mike of Run the Jewels, warned democrats that Donald Trump hasn’t gone away, and celebrated Facebook’s outage.
Unfortunately, that was the last time fans would hear from Maher for an extended period. There will not be a new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight.
Instead, HBO will reair last week’s episode. Fans can catch up on Maher’s interview with psychology professor and author Steven Pinker and see the panel with Killer Mike and political reporter Robert Costa.
What to watch tonight instead of Real Time with Bill Maher
Real Time with Bill Maher returns with a brand new episode next Friday. So tonight, late-night TV fans will have to look elsewhere.
The bad news is that there won’t be a ton of options. Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Late Night with Seth Meyers all air repeat episodes tonight.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will offer a brand new episode. It’s a change of pace from Real Time, but it’s still late-night TV. The guest lineup includes Oscar Isaac, Jo Firestone, and Alec Benjamin. The show starts at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
Maher fans can still check out past monologues, “New Rule” segments, and interviews on the Real Time YouTube channel. HBO Max also offers content from Real Time.
