    I love Bill Maher's show! Wonder why they changed the time? Seems a little lame to have it at 9pm instead of 11pm.

    Hey dumbass, it's always been an hourlong show.

  4. 4

    I think he is brilliant in cutting through all the crap and speaking honestly and getting his guests to do the same. We need more of this, although sometimes I may disagree with his views.

  5. 5

    Meh, he's an anti-religious bigot, that that's OK in today's PC culture. Too bad, otherwise I would watch, he at least has the cajones to call it like he sees it.

  6. 6

    Re: gossip531 – if you love his show you'd know it's a 10.

  7. 7

    Its always been an hour long show…..

  8. 8

    It's already an hour long. The time changed, that's it.

    the non-religious far left strikes again!

  10. 10

    It's always been an hour long, just moved it to 9pm. Good research Perez.

  11. 11

    Bill Mahar is a crotchity old man who seems unhappy living here in America - maybe he should head elsewhere if things are so bad here.

  12. 12

    Re: knumbknuts – An anti-religious bigot? Um no, he questions why people would believe ridiculous things like talking snakes for example. And look at the scene from Religulous where the trucker got upset because Bill question his beliefs and uses facts to back them up. All mythologies need to be challenged for the crock-of-crap they are. Millions have died over these beliefs. It's about time people like Bill, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins get a voice in world full of bullshit artist Pat Robertsons'.

  13. 13

    He hates america, no doubt about it.

  14. 14

    I fucking love Bill Maher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. 15

    no, he's irrelevant

  16. 16

    i love bill!!!!

  17. 17

    LOVE Bill. I'm a big fan. Definitely looking forward to seeing more!

  18. 18

    Bill Maher is a fucking douchebag and his show sucks. I don't know why HBO would give Gary Gnu another dime. He acts like a know it all and he knows NOTHING!

  19. 19

    Yet again, I think it's amazing that many religious people automatically make the incorrect assumption that non-religious people are somehow unhappy or unfulfilled based on nothing more than conjecture.

    NEWSFLASH!!!! I don't need a bible, a god or a ghostly son in my life to be happy.

    The majority of really religious people I know are the most un-Christ-like, gossiping, judgmental and hateful people I've ever met. Like this knumbknuts retard who would like him if it weren't for the fact that he isn't religious. Ridiculous asswipes.

  20. 20

    Hate this ugly, stinky, douche-bag jerk.

  21. 21

    He's the best. Just saw him in AC. Hysterical

  22. 22

    I love his show. It really is the smartest show on television. He has the most prestigious guests and is always delving into topics that are interesting and crucial. I love him!

  23. 23

    Maher is a bigger douche than Mario
    "Bill Maher is a vital and provocative observer who cuts through the media clutter to offer a uniquely thoughtful outlook on the world. " No doubt the person who wrote this attended the Obama school of double speak and untruths. He isn't qualified for jack, because he has a mouth that puts down guests and does not allow them to speak or answer a question and has the backing of his stooges on his personal dias does not entertainment make.

  24. 24

    Yes very happy can't wait for another season!!

  25. 25

    I liked him a whole lot better before he started in with all his antivaxx BS.

  26. 26

    Bill only walks this way because he refuses to get a shot for his syphilis.
    His show will be great next season when he gets the swine flu!

  27. 27

    It's always been an hour long…

  28. 28

    Watch the show, but he's a total douche. Brilliant douche, but douche all the same.

  29. 29

    pointless to watch the show bkz it's waaaay too one sided.

  30. 30

    God, I wish this bitter old ass would just die already. And take grouchy David Letterman with him. Cant someone under the age of 60 do late night???? Besides Colon O Bowel?

  31. 31

    Re: shazza76Agreed, I love Maher and his show, but he doesn't understand as much about vaccinations as he thinks. I can understand him not wanting them, especially since he is vegan, but he's getting a little too tinfoil with it.
    I still plan to watch, and Perez, the show has always been an hour long format.

  32. 32

    As others have said, it has always been a one hour show and it has most recently been aired at 10pm. Moving it to 9pm gives it a larger potential audience and shows strong support from HBO. And since it is done LIVE out of Los Angeles, Bill will be done with the show at 7pm local time.

  33. 33

    OMGYAY! I love Bill's show. I am still swooning from episodes with Kathy Griffin and Rachel Maddow. I watch them over and over. Have they had you on perez? I've haven't watched it lately…. (DON'T HAVE HBO ANYMORE! *sob*)

  34. 34

    Re: mvpclerk – You are right. It started airing at 10pm this year and I started taping it. Before that, I always watched it live when it was on at 11pm. I liked it better when it was on at 11pm.

  35. 35

    Was it NOT an hour long?

  36. 36

    I wish he would just die. Total scum.

  37. 37

    Bill Maher has one of the best shows on television. And Perez, his show was already an hour long, but was on in a later timeslot.

  38. 38

    Yea for us!

    Bravo Bill Maher!

    I can't wait!

  39. 39

    Bill Maher kicks ass

  40. harle says – reply to this


    hell yes! More Bill and no no no no more fucking twilight.

  41. 41

    I LOVE Bill Maher. He says what many are thinking but are afraid to say out loud. Bill says it and I love that refreshing honesty.

  42. @v@ says – reply to this


    His views are sharp, intelligent comic relief, and I always look forward to seeing Maher. He can keep blossoming now that he's with an outfit that backs him up.

  43. 43

    Real Time with Bill Maher has always been an hour long format, what's new about that?

  44. 44

    the show has always been an hour long; a brilliant show, a brilliant host, and mom22freaks, why dont you just die? that would be one less idiot on the planet.

  45. 45


  46. 46

    I cant wait for his show to come back on! Everyone needs a little truth sometimes.

  47. 47

    Yes, I love him, but what is the big change? That is a hour earlier? It has always been 1 hour long.

  48. 48

    He Fat Homo…what Bill Maher were you watching that was less than hour??? Bill Maher rocks, regardless of what side of the political fence you sit on, I respect his views and his balls to say to say it! If more people in politics were like him America would be a better place. I don't agree with most of his ideals being a Republican, but I tune in every Friday night!

  49. Guzzi says – reply to this


    If you watch this show…and actually like it and listen to anything this disgusting excuse for a human being says…please just be aware of who's rantings you are listening to.

    I've met this man on several occasions and each time he was coked out of his mind and with Hookers. He was barely able to stand, sluring words, sweating uncontrollably, and surrounded by hookers…not skanky LA women…real hookers. He's a disgusting person and to even watch his show or support anything this person does is dispicable. I really felt the need to comment on this just for the sake of letting the few people who may read this know what a complete scumbag this man really is.

  50. 50

    Man is a complete A__hole!

  51. 51

    I feel like we should love people and respect everyone's beliefs. (whether we agree with them or not.) Bill Maher is disrespectful and hateful to others and the only reason he is the slightest bit entertaining is because he uses sarcasm. If you notice in his movie, sometimes instead of answering a straight question someone asked him- he would turn the question on them with a snide, irrelevant remark. Without his wit, Bill Maher is nothing but a hateful slightly contradictory person. LOVE OTHERS!

    A pretencious,ignorant,unfunny,ugly,gay,misogynist,douchebag. I hope he gets a pig flu and dies.

  53. 53

    a big change? it already was an hour long. the fuck you talking about, you fat retarded sack of shit?

    YAY!!! feb 19??? sux! love his show, finally someone speaking the TRUTH

  56. cika says – reply to this


    thats why HBO on demand exists

  57. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Guzzi – Maher is a master at the turn of a phrase, regardless of how he chooses to spend his down time. Non hookers probably all want him to marry them. He seems the type who might prefer a straight business deal over women who all seem to want something more from him, not saying that isn't maybe sad if you're a Walton type. If the habits prevail, the tongue will fail, so that might be a future problem. Some just prefer to go out in a blaze of glory.

  58. 58

    i don't know why but i am so attracted to this guy

  59. 59

    legend. love his show

  60. Bokay says – reply to this


    YES,YES,YES, Bill is the only tv to watch of course after True Blood, Hung, Entourage….in that order please.

  61. 61

    What are the big changes? I can't stand him being on hiatus. Friday night TV isn't the same.

  62. 62

    I love Bill Maher! He has the best political show on tv hands down.

  63. 63

    Bill Maher doesn't hate America, he hates dumb people who happen to be Americans. And I would rather listen to a non-religious person express his opinions and expose hypocrisies in politics and religion than to hear an ignorant jackass use the bible to defend his prejudices while claiming to be a good Christian.

  64. 64

    He's a bore

  65. 65

    He may be a jerk-off in his personal life, but I think his show is important. It's filled with political topics that a lot of people may not know about because they don't watch CNN or MSNBC or the other snooze fests out there. It's a good concept: educational & entertaining. Keep it around!

  66. 66

    Bill Maher: (a) takes advantage of black women for his own selfish needs, and (b) is half Jewish.

    But I repeat myself.
