First I remember seeing Bill Maher
30 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hard to believe this show has fallen so far down the memory hole. It was like a weird buddy cop show with Bill Maher and Tommy Hinkley. Maher was sort of the straight arrow and Hinkley was dumb and prone to erupt in violence, but it was a videotaped sitcom on Showtime. Ran sometimes in tandem with 'It's Garry Shandling's Show.' A restaurant was involved somehow.

Jim Vallely of the Funny Boys had a very funny character. He was a chef at the restaurant, and the one gag I recall from this show is him baking a cupcake that was supposed to look like Mindy Cohn from "The Facts of Life." His character was often at odds with the Renee Props character.

That's all I got, except I remember it as being a good comedy, and I remember it suddenly and unceremoniously disappearing from the schedule.
