The week has come to an end, but late-night TV fans typically don’t start the weekend without Real Time with Bill Maher. So what should they expect to see tonight on HBO?

Bill Maher has delivered a handful of new episodes since season 21 premiered in January. Last week, the Real Time host tackled Fox News, the Big Lie, and “Trumpism without Trump.” He left viewers on both sides of the issue with something to think about in typical Maher fashion.

Unfortunately, we won’t get to see how he follows up on things this week. There will not be a new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight.

Instead, HBO will replay the February 17 episode during the show’s normal 10:00 p.m. ET timeslot. Fans get another chance to see Maher chat with Christoph Waltz, Sarah Isgur, and Ari Melber.

What to watch instead of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight

Late-night TV fans know that options are typically limited on Friday nights. Shows like The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers always take the night off — and that’s the case tonight.

You can also add The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Late Late Show with James Corden to the list of shows airing repeats on Friday night.

That leaves Jimmy Kimmel Live! as the lone option. The ABC show will air a new episode tonight at 11:30 p.m. ET.

The guest lineup includes Tom Cruise, Camila Morrone, and Walk Off The Earth.
