Here we go with another dose of New Rules, new views, new guests and probably new controversy as REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER starts off Season 16. Following close behind is The Guy on his bike peddling his charm, wit and the latest blend of cannabis in HIGH MAINTENANCE. Are you watching Friday nights?
Bill Maher’s latest round of hot debate & jocularity just aired on 01.19 at 10:00pm. His top-of-show guest, after the monologue, was Michael Wolff, author of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” A lot of buzz was generated by the bestselling book and all it reveals and Bill Maher couldn’t resist getting in on the discussions it has flared up. We can share that back-and-forth:
He was joined at the desk by journalist Andrew Sullivan and comedian Larry Wilmore. Activist Saru Jayaraman was the second interview guest. She brought up the topic that waitressing is the only job in which you get the bulk of your pay via “tips.” The restaurant owners are basically letting the customers determine how much the worker is getting paid. Only in America! Of course, the installment ended with New Rules.
And Maher is off and running. And so is The Guy at 11:00pm. Creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair return with the premiere of the sophomore season of HIGH MAINTENANCE and business is booming. Introducing new customers and revisiting familiar ones, the second season weaves together a labyrinth of humor, poignant observations and heartfelt moments in stories that explore the lives of intriguing and colorful individuals from all walks of life. Let’s have them tell it:
So, the ten-episode run delves deeper into the contemporary anxieties New Yorkers are experiencing, from political tension to soaring real estate prices, while emphasizing the importance of savoring the highs of life in this increasingly volatile world. Pulling back the curtain on The Guy’s personal life, the second season also reveals a few more people and details of what happens when he’s not on the clock.
So after you listen to all the major BS happening, through the REAL TIME filter…
you’ll need to mellow out with the coping mechanism provided by HIGH MAINTENANCE and you can Friday nights on HBO!
