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 temporary pulled the show off the air when host Bill Maher agreed with conservative author Dinesh D'Souza that it was inappropriate to label the 9/11 hijackers as "cowards" due to the fact that they sacrificed their lives for their cause. Fed Ex and Sears withdrew their sponsorship. See more »

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.

User Reviews

Entertaining, thought-provoking, aggravating
14 June 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

As far as late-night shows go, this is the most interesting and original of them all. It's the only late-night talk show that doesn't engage their guests in scripted, self-serving dialogue. Instead, it puts the guests in heated discussion over current events and social issues, throwing self-promotion aside.

Aside from concept and originality, in execution it works pretty well. The host is very opinionated and given his control it sometimes curbs the life of the argument. Naturally, it can get frustrating watching a conversation and not being able to shout at some of the guests. Generally, it's great fun to watch.
