This is the first time I really have had a lot of experience with him and it says a lot that, even as a left-leaner, I find him very extreme at times. Which I am very excited to see. His guests don't really get to disagree with him. Presidential Election was hilariously tasteless and informative. Whether we agree with it or not, it's a step forward in attaining a greater understanding with which we could help ourselves and our country for the future. The show has a one-track mind. I get that education in an entertaining way.
Then he moves into the typical news of the week. Since I'm not tied to any political party I tend to really enjoy the whole essence of this show. Judge everyone and everything in the rudest way possible. Nothing Bill says will offend me, although he tends to offend a lot of people who are mostly conservatives. Maher hates President George W. This is very troublesome to me as I work in physics. It's always interesting to see an athlete change from his rugged shell, to an eloquent, twirling, dressed up performer.
Guest B says something completely contrary but puts it into nice words, and the crowd applauds again. He really asks the tough questions and pins down the guest to answer them. But the fact is that he doesn't let any neutral scientific person answer. The conversation bubbles along with a rapid pace and humorous tone. Although it is unlikely that even-handed discussion will ever come out when opposites sides of the spectrum are together, it does often happen that both sides make good points in their favour — only for Maher to steam across the conservative view with his opinion. While I respect Jon Stewart, his audience is very annoying and it takes away credibility from the show's claim to be news. To avoid declaring any political allegiances here as if I really have any , I will say that I do fall within this show's primary demographic.

This makes him the ideal host for a show like Real Time with Bill Maher. A full hour with politics, guests, talking points and a little bit of comedy. Bill Maher the host is terrible. Many people believe that comedy and politics should not mix, but Bill Maher does not agree.
That smart ass grin he gets when he tells a gag, especially a controversial one, takes the shine off an otherwise great performance. No doubt this year has one of the best cast's I've seen to date. Well, most of the guests are there because they are promoting books. There are cases where he actually just changes the subject when he's challenged by something. This makes the show very rare, and it is why so many people tune in each week. Unequivically, this show is awesome. I couldn't applaud her more.
This is my main problem. Real Time's audience doesn't go that far nor does the show stick so faithfully to entertaining it's audience. Maher often cites numbers that aren't what he thinks they are. In addition to the roundtable discussions, the show also features topical i more… A talk show about current events with the former host of 'Politically Incorrect. It is sometimes alarming, other times it's depressing but it's always important. Bill was a guest on Henry's show and it was cool to see them talk.
Not as funny as Jon Stewart but Maher goes a bit deeper in his hour than Stewart can. But because we must remember that Maher is first and foremost a comedian, we must also remember that we should not take anything he says seriously - whether it offends us or not; no one said that comedy - not to mention, good comedy - had to always be in good taste. This provides for some spirited debates given the show's unrehearsed and mostly unscripted nature. . Bill's roundtable panel includes the Founder of The Dream Corp.

It all works like dynamite because the guy is funnier, smarter and a better interviewer than Jon Stewart, Jay Leno and David Letterman combined. Bill Maher is an annoying character. However while others get their say, the show is ultimately Maher's and he does tend to dominate. While his audience is sometimes more leaning to the left, he doesn't shy away from having on the right wing or conservatives, and then it brings about intelligent, sometimes cringe-worthy, discussions.
