REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its 16th season FRIDAY, MARCH 2 (10:00–11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), with a replay at 11:30 p.m., exclusively on HBO. Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists and interviews with guests. David Hogg and Cameron Kasky, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., and co-founders of the student advocacy group on gun control Never Again MSD, are the the top-of-show interview guests. Author Amy Chua is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and historian Jon Meacham.

The show is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER has already been renewed through 2020.

Politico has hailed Maher as “a pugnacious debater and a healthy corrective to the claptrap of cable news,” while Variety noted, “There may not be a more eclectic guest list on all of television.”

Maher headlined his first special on the network in 1989 and has starred in ten HBO solo specials to date. He is also an executive producer of the innovative news magazine show “VICE,” which returns for its sixth season later this year on HBO.

The executive producers of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER are Bill Maher, Scott Carter, Sheila Griffiths, Dean Johnsen, Billy Martin; co-executive producer, Chris Kelly; producer, Matt Wood; co-producer, TJ Baldino; associate producer, Miles Leicher; director, Paul Casey.
