But since you are not Bill Maher, nor do you have intimate knowledge of his thinking, you are only supposing what the real reason he changed his mind was, based on your poor opinion of him.

I have not commented on this before, but it does not make sense to believe that Maher changed his plans due to the criticism he received. He was critical of the WGA strike in 2007, and he has been critical of this strike. He's not an idiot. He knew what people would say about his producing a show without writers. Letterman, Leno, and Conan O'Brien all produced writer-less shows in 2008 during the WGA strike. Why would people criticizing him in exactly the way he knew he would be criticized affect him? And since when does Maher care so much about criticism at all?

MOD NOTE

Please keep the political discussions civil. If you'd like to get more heated, you should take it over to the Religion, Politics and World Events section. Thank you.

Yeah, unfortunately I'm expecting a bunch of agreeing on being "anti-woke."

"You can't tell jokes any more because of Millenials and Gen Z! Wahhhhhh!"

And? So you feel the need to fill this thread because you think it's too inactive? It's weird enough that you even come back time and time again when you hate everything about the show, the guests and the panel with such passion, but this takes the cake, man.

Bill is back tonight. 10 pm eastern and streaming on Max.

I am just glad to have a show back. This is the only one I never miss.

The last Bill show I missed was before the 9/11 thing on Politically Incorrect.

And he is still the same old Bill he always was, just Older, Whiter and Crankier than ever. 😉

Nothing beats Bill Maher drinking hard liquor and smoking tons of weed with celebrities on Club Random though.

Yeah, I was surprised on how heated things were getting about Maher. If you don't like him you don't have to watch (or hate watch), he's not for everyone.

I think some of his former fans feel betrayed.

Yeah, I don't doubt that. I don't agree with everything he says, but I still enjoy watching the show.

At least personally iíve never been a fan of Maherís politics and donít find him funny at all but he gets good guests. When I have HBO I watch him but heís not a reason I ever order HBO.

I know a lot of people are down on Maher, but Albert Brooks!
