Now that Dennis Miller's outta there, HBO's plugged in Bill Maher. 

Maher, whose long-running and fatally controversial Politically Incorrect was offed in June by ABC, has taken over Miller's 11:30 p.m. Friday time slot on the cable network. 

HBO has ordered up 20 episodes of the yet-to-be-titled Maher project, which launches February 21.

It will air live on the East Coast and be tape-delayed on the West Coast. 

'HBO has enjoyed a productive long-term relationship with Bill Maher, who is one of the most distinctive and provocative humorists on the scene today,' says Chris Albrecht, HBO's chairman and CEO. 'This edgy new show will give him a regular, uncensored forum for the first time ever on TV.'...

I liked his show on ABC so yes I would watch his show on HBO

I will too, ABC made a big mistake in kicking him off their network. What he said, about the 9/11 terrorists not being cowards, was true. It's just the government and media couldn't accept that fact

Oh and it will be nice to not hear all the censor beeps any more, LOL

I will, he's interesting.
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 12/11/02 - 2:11:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
i will, assuming that i have HBO
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/22/02 - 8:58:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
i dont have HBO
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/22/02 - 9:17:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
ABC didn't like him because he was too much of a loose cannon and occasionally attacked the network itself and some of the sponsors. ABC is a bunch of spineless b*stards for taking him off. I think he is great--I love him confronting hypocritical politicians to their faces.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 12/26/02 - 12:10:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
I will. He's funny.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 12/26/02 - 12:13:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I didn;t like his humor because he always attacks Catholics
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/8/03 - 11:44:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sweet ... it's starting on Feb. 21, here is a new article on it ... should be a great one! :)

I have cable but not HBO; it costs extra and I am broke. However if I did have HBO, I would never miss it. Politically Incorrect was my favorite show and I hear his new show is the same only no commercials and no censoring. I might just have to shell out the extra money each month for HBO. I haven't decided yet.

The first episode was awesome, I have the second one from Friday night taped, I'll probably watch it tomorrow. I love the no censoring, and there is stand up comedy from new comedians every week too.
