    HBO
    "Real Time with Bill Maher" is a weekly HBO talk show series hosted by comedian and political satirist Bill Maher. Episodes include an opening political sketch, a monologue, a panel of three well educated celebrities, two guests (live or via satellite), and at the end, "New Rules."

    The panel members normally represent a wide spectrum of American politics, which results in an interesting discussion and a fair presentation of the current events. While Bill Maher acts as the panel's head, he doesn't hide his ideological viewpoints. He'll end up agreeing with and attacking both sides of the political spectrum.

    The last segment, "New Rules," is political satire and covers Bill Maher's personal peeves of the week.

    The fore-runner of this series is the series Politically Incorrect (shown first on Comedy Central and then later on ABC).moreless

    In 1999, Jack Black and Kyle Gass filmed a series of 6 comedic shorts for HBO. Each episode showed Tenacious D during all of their adventures while trying to make it big. Each episode contained an open mike performance with Tenacious D, these performances are still the only place you can hear a few of their rare classic songs.

    Plans were made to extend the show to a full 30 minutes and write ten more episodes, but when it came time to renew their contract, The D had a falling out with HBO, and plans for any future episodes were scrapped. Much to the delight of fans though, all 6 episodes were included in the Tenacious D-The Complete Master Works DVD that was released on November 4th 2003.moreless
