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.

User Reviews

Uneven but entertaining.

Like all discussion shows, the quality of each particular episode will depend on the topic, who the guests are, and if everyone really gets involved. In a week I saw one excellent episode, two ok ones, and one I could not watch to the end. The best one involved religion and the guests all knew alot about their viewpoint. Othertimes, the guests was luke perry, a supermodel, a cartoonist, and a musician. The topic was disability and how the disabled should get to do everything everyone else does, but why does it have to be at the same time. Of the four guests, only the cartoonist offered any original and meaningful points other that, ya they should do it or no they should not. So the quality of the episode will depend on the guests. But Bill Maher is always good, well almost always.
