Real Time with Bill Maher returns to HBO tonight with a fresh new set of panelists joining the host. So which panelists will feature?
Actor and comedian Bob Odenkirk will make his first Real Time appearance today. The personality just recently was announced to star in a new series, Straight Man. set to air on AMC. Odenkirk is no stranger to the network, famous for his role in Better Call Saul, wrapping up its sixth season.
Mary Katherine Ham
Journalist Mary Katherine Ham will also sit alongside Maher tonight. She is a CNN contributor and the editor of the Townhall Magazine. According to PrimeTimer, Ham was recently listed as a possible replacement co-host on The View in recent months.
We can expect Ham to provide a more balanced and informative take on the week’s political events. The journalist made an appearance on Real Time back in 2019 alongside Noah Rothman, Matt Schlapp, Jonathan Alter, and Michael Steele.
Veteran news writer, Caitlin Flanagan will also be a guest on tonight’s episode. With over 20 years of experience at The Atlantic, Flanagan will be the cherry on the cake for tonight’s panel discussion.
Flanagan is no newcomer to Real Time and it’s clear why Maher is so keen to have her back. Flanagan has been an open critic of political correctness, a topic we could see Maher talk for hours on end about.
Jordan Peterson axed from the guest list
Political commentator Jordan Peterson was first expected to make an appearance tonight on Real Time. On short notice, it seems the author of the recently released Beyond Order will not join Maher on the panel.
Peterson is however, currently touring California to promote his new book release.
