Storyline

Political talk show based on the idea that debate is stifled by too much seriousness. Guests are chosen from the worlds of politics and entertainment, often with the goal of creating conflict (ultra-sensitive special-interest groups matched with outrageous comedians). Nevertheless, a relatively friendly atmosphere is maintained, with none of the swearing or chair-throwing common on 'shock-talk' shows. Regular features have included the "Get Over Yourself" award, given to the week's most self-absorbed public figure. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

ABC cancelled the show even though its ratings were strong, and in some markets it was beating out The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992). Host Bill Maher has been quoted as saying it was because the politically conservative Walt Disney Corp., which owned ABC, didn't like his criticisms of the government of President George W. Bush.

Quotes

Bill Maher: [the quote that some say got the show canceled] We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly.

If your brain works, and you have a sense of humor, you'll love this!
6 August 1999 | by (Abilene, Texas) – See all my reviews

I really can't find anything bad to say about this show! Bill Maher is almost as funny as Dennis Miller is on his show. I think if it weren't for the fact that "PI" is on network TV, Maher would really give Miller a run for his money. The guests are intelligent, and the panels are picked to balance each other well. There's just nothing funnier than seeing some member of the Religious Right go nose-to-nose with Marylin Manson. Or seeing a Christian Coalition member trade verbal jabs with Dee Snider. The greatest thing about this show, is that even when you're radically opposed to the viewpoints being presented, you can usually at least see where the panelist is coming from. You may not agree, but you have to give credit where it's due! All in all, this is one of the most excellent shows on TV, and if only it were on in a prime-time slot, it would easily garner ratings that would make any producer green with envy. 5 stars out of 5! Excellent show!
