HBO Confirms ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’s’ Friday, Nov. 8 Exciting Guests, Including Judge Judy Sheindlin

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its 17th season FRIDAY, NOV. 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), with a replay at 12:30 a.m., exclusively on HBO.


Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with guests. Judge Judy Sheindlin is the top-of-show interview guest. Comedian and director Judd Apatow is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are Governor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Steve Bullock, former Chicago Mayor and White House Chief of Staff to President Obama Rahm Emanuel and political analyst Steve Schmidt. 

The show is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.


REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER has been renewed through 2020.


Politico has hailed Maher as “a pugnacious debater and a healthy corrective to the claptrap of cable news,” while Variety noted, “There may not be a more eclectic guest list on all of television.”


Maher headlined his first special on the network in 1989 and has starred in 11 HBO solo specials to date.


The executive producers of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER are Bill Maher, Scott Carter, Sheila Griffiths, Dean Johnsen, Billy Martin; co-executive producer, Chris Kelly; producers, Matt Wood, TJ Baldino; associate producer, Miles Leicher; director, Paul Casey.
