  • Bill is the best

    10
    Bill Maher is one of a handful of reasons why TV worth watching. He is brutally honest, but also takes his license as a comedian to use hyperbole, irony, and sarcasm, which are almost always on the mark. I don't laugh much, but he keeps me laughing out loud. Keep it up Bill! And he doesn't care what Fox or Limbaugh sympathizers think. He's got their number. Keep it up, Bill Maher!
  • Typical liberal non-critical thinking.

    1.0
    Requesting liberals to become introspective in their thought processes is obviously a mythical request. Bill Maher validates the foregoing each and every time he opens his mouth. He attempts to pretend he is sophisticated and informed but the antithesis is apparent due to his "bucket-over-his-head" concept of reality.
  • Maher Is A Scumbag

    1.0
    They ought to call this show Real Slime Is Bill Maher. This lowlife greasy headed weasel is such a hate monger like Rush Limbaugh is for the right. He like Chris Matthews are such in the tank for Obama that they are not objective. Bill Maher does not hide his hatred for George W. Bush and Fox News and for that I applaud is honesty but it gets repulsive and incredibly hard to watch. He always has his fellow leftist celebrities in his weekly bashfest. Since Real Time With Bill Maher is on HBO which is owned by Time Warner who owns CNN don't expect to see any fairness in the future. I only wish he can get a score of 0.0. Bill Maher has reached a new low by calling God a mass murderer. HBO should fire this scumbag now.
  • Jealous of Maddow?

    3.0
    Rachel's viewers will decide when the Christie scandals are not of interest. I think you are just jealous because a smart woman journalist is doing such a great job reporting on this scandal that impacts the lives of many people in New Jersey.
  • Harpers Bizarro Poll

    8.0
    That Harpers poll you used last week in your rant on "seniors" was a little bit off the mark. Social Security isn't government spending , per se, on "seniors" and shouldn't be included in spending comparisons to children, defense, agriculture, welfare, etc. And ,for the record Medicare doesn't cover Viagra or Cialis. By the way, . Cupp , is the only female "conservative " commentator I can take or that I like.

    Thanks, Joe

    If ever there was a Reason to listen to Rush Limdah,This Moron is and Pro-Censorship,The things he says about Conservitive women makes anything Rush says about Liberal women seem tame by comparason.
  • ***y bill sucks ass

    1.0
    I would like to stoop down to Bill's level and call him a huge ***. That bigot is trying to destroy what made this country great. Its not like he matters though, now that people are waking up and the presidents approval ratings are at ~40% its not like any democrat has a chance. Im not a republi*** btw, I wouldn't be surprised if the repubs turned into the new whig party. Lrn2history liberal ***s
  • REAL TIME IS REAL AWESOME

    8.5
    Bill Maher is back and better than ever. I love this show. I especially love the panel discussions. Bill presides over a diverse panel from both sides of the aisle, and the show sizzles when the panel goes at it. I can't wait to see what Bill and his guests are going to say. Bill is extremely funny and smart, and I miss him when he's not on. You rock, Bill.
  • Never miss a show

    Keep up the great work. Entertaining, interesting, and thoughtfully presented topics are always on no matter when I tune in. Bill Maher rocks!
  • Bill, you are the only one who will examine health care costs fairly

    10
    Bill, I appreciate that you've touched on the obscenity of US health care costs. But, please devote an entire episode to the costs of health care. This is among the top issues in this off-presidential year. I received a standard doctor's visit and strep test bill for $600, 4x the cost of those with insurance, and 8 times the cost that Walgreens clinic charges. During the doctor's visit, the doctor didn't touch my daughter, but rather had a nurse do the strep test. We just needed the prescription, knowing after 4 times, what my daughter had. I'd like to hear from a provider, an insurance a Walgreens rep, a Medicare rep, and AMA rep to explain this ridiculous charging structure and find some solutions, or at least, have the debate.
  • can you rate higher than 10??

    10
    Hands down, best show on TV. I'm sad on the weeks Bill and the gang take a break. Funny, Informative, and fair. Right wingers, left wingers, scientists, movie stars, as well as rappers covering a whole range of topics, some times even topics not covered by the rest of our lazy media. Whoever cancelled Politically Incorrect was an idiot. I hope this show is on til I'm 100, and as long as it is, I will always pay for HBO !
  • Half or Half Cracked

    7.5
    Watched the segment on police response to catching the "alleged" bomber in the boat. Bill, FYI. There is not a single "half track" in any photo you showed. Those were armored Humvees. An image search on Google would have shown you a half track, thereby not making you look, HALF CRACKED!
  • Muslims in Obama administartion

  • Inspiring 16 year old Leukemia Fighter

    10
    Hello,



    I am writing this with regards to my cousin Jorie Elliott.

    Jorie was diagnosed with Acute Pro-myilotic Leukemia which is a type of Acute Non-lymphocytic Leukemia she was 15 years old when she was diagnosed with this on January 9th 2013. Jorie turned 16 years old which she had to spend in the hospital alone in London Ontario.

    She is a straight "A" student and a very athletic person playing 7 different sports on 10 different teams, due to cancer Jorie had to give up her love for her sports and her school. But this hasn't stopped her she has already convinced her mom to let her play hockey every now and then.



    Jorie loves turtles in the summer of 2008 when Jorie was 10 she wrote her first letter to the Municipality of Kincardine about her concerns that turtles would get killed trying to cross the street. After not hearing any news about this issue Jorie decided to send in another letter this time including an essay about Ontario's turtle populaton and how 6 of Ontario's 8 species of turtle are at-risk. Jorie's 2 year wait paid off as the Municipality began to search for a turtle crossing sign. Jorie set out to raise money to pay for the signs herself.



    When Jorie was 11 she planned on taking school supplies and clothes over to Cuba were she goes on winter vacation. Jorie states that she wants to make them feel like the luckiest kids in the world. Thanks to Jorie 31 packages were sent with her to Cuba and handed out to the children in Varadero.



    Jorie's wish is to meet Justin Bieber so I am asking you to help her out, she puts everyone before herself and always stands up for what she believes in, and now it's our turn to give back to her.

    We have also started a #turtlesforjorie campaign and are trying to get it to "trend" on twitter. So every time you see a turtle think of a girl who is battling something no child/teenager/person should have to.
  • Bill Mather

    10
    If I owned a television I would choose only a few one would be the Bill Mather show. He's very funny and truly insightful in all that is happening in today's world.
  • i am done

    1.0
    Bringing Julian Assange to the show is the final straw. I will no longer watch Bill's show. I generally love him to death but he has gone way too far this time.
  • I love Bill Maher, but Bullsh-t Bullsh-t Bullsh-t about 911 investigations!!! Get your facts strait, Please!

    10
    There were bullsh-t investigations into the 911 debacle. The government paid off the insurance claims for almost everyone in those buildings. These were for the most part, fairly well paid people that worked in the World Trade Center. They likey almost all had some sort of life insurance. But they never let the insurance investigators do their job. If the Bush administration hadn't bailed out all these peoples insurance policies, there would have likely been literally hundreds of independant investigations into this incident! We didn't bail out the victims of Oklahoma City, so why the World trade Center full of well to do workers. Maybe I'm talkin Bullsh-t, but you simply cannot say that 911 was truly investigated. The only thing we can truthfully say about 911 is that we don't really know what happened, and we probably never will know! In my humble opinion. I better shut up or Cheney'll blow my A-- up!

    My favorite show very informative and funny. BILL MAHER IS A COMEDIAN he says stuff that offends people from time to time guess what u can change the channel. Only someone very lame would go out of their way to go on its webpage to trash a show. Trust me if i hate a show im not watching it. Its creepy how seemingly smart people shut off their brain when religion and politics are concerned. Blind devotion is Creepy.
  • update the schedule

  • Great Show

    You have an Outstanding show... thank you for always telling the truth.

    Love your guest commentators. I wasn't sure what Costa was going to say on a Political Show but he actually added to the show with his comments.

    I love Chris Hayes. His show on MSNBC is very smart and informative and he brought some common sense to what the topic was about on your show.

    The reason I am writing a review to say Thank You for telling the people that Homeland Security is the Biggest, Most Expensive New Government Branch since the Pentagon was created. I love how the Repubs are always reducing government in our lives and the Repub Prez Bush created the biggest Big Brother in our government. Thank you for stating this fact. I have been telling people that for years and they respond the US needs that department. If I were Prez that would be the 1st bureaucracy I would shut down. They invade lives and hold secret files on innocent people without a trial.

    But the Great Republican Party wants to shut down Dept. of Commerce, Education, EPA & some stupid ideas. These departments actually help Americans but the Repubs don't care about any of that stuff. Let's spend money on killing people in wars but not in the womb. That is against God's plan for human life. You know what, I would rather kill a sperm/egg than wait till they turn 18 and kill them during a war. I think my approach is more humane.

    Love always,

    I usually ADORE Bill Maher. We saw him recently at the Melody Tent in Hyannis, Mass and loved him. He is a talented genius. Friday's show for me was significantly less than that. The reason: Rehan Salam. I LOATHE that guy. His visuals are the same as what I perceive his Beelzebub soul to be. The man looks like a cross between a vampire and a Pitt Bull and his opinions reflect how he looks. He is impervious to reason, looks sullen and furiously angry, he interrupts like a child in third grade needing to go to the bathroom. His only response to a progressive like the lovely Alex Wagner was NO NO NO, no matter if she said the sun is shining, he interrupted and did not let anyone get a word in. So I muted or fast forwarded everything he said which meant I left 3/4 of the show on the cutting room floor because he let no one speak. He is uncontrollable.



    I will turn that show OFF if and when Salam is on again. He is the reason our politics is so rancid. I suppose it gets good ratings. As for me I will in the future turn the show off if Salam the evil is given a format he should not have. Conservatives on the show while often I am not thrilled SOME evoke a reasonable response and one can learn. From Salam one learns hate -- hate of him, hate of the so called "conservative" cause and by extension hate by me of that particular broadcast.



    Let him GO and never hire him again. Tell him to leave and sin no more although I am sure he would say NO NO NO to that too, waive his hands like a child whose bladder is full and then talk over everyone to get his view heard. Well, it will NEVER be heard by me. Bill you can do better than that ugly inside and out humanoid. In his case beauty is not just skin deep it is metaphor for the essence of that JERK!

  • Crap!

    1.0
    I don't know how people watch this crap, let alone how it actually made it to a second season. It's a shame that this takes the slot time for something else with substance. HBO, please get rid of this "crap".
  • Poor Judgement

    4.0
    I use to enjoy watching your show, but as lately you seem to have become overly opinionated on matters without having all the facts, it's one thing to be funny and yet all together another when not showing good judgement and responsibility.

    I would like to think that a person such as yourself who reaches millions of households would be more responsible when talking about issues like as the Zimmerman case, or is it anything for a laugh, even when it's at the expense of others, specially in this case which is so sensitive!

    Your better than that Bill
  • the importance of words and thoughts

    10
    every time someone becomes loud enough to be heard, when someone (agreeing or not) stops to listen, means only that that person is exceptional. i believe that bill is exceptional, and i do it with objective reasons, i do not do it due to political opinion, social, religious... i do it because it's part of a method called dialectics (has been here for quite some time, since socrates...) Doesn't matter what i think of him to him, matters to me what his message is. the way he delivers and the range of his ideas. i have hear people calling him anti-american (from americans btw), and yet he stands for the basic principle of freedom of speech... a little like homer simpson ""Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand"", or in this particular situation "just because he doesn't like, doesn't mean he doesn't care"
  • Why does this man exist??

    1.0
    He is the biggest creep on television. He isn't even funny. Disgusting piece of work. I can't even believe he gets away with the things he says. His followers must be brainwashed.
  • Occupation not dead but indoors.

    8.5
    As a member of the local town Occupation movement we are doing well and getting bigger, and the age is even getting older, and a good mix of Americans. We have just moved to the meeting room in door and the library's.

    Just fyi
  • Tonight's show 1/27/12

    8.5
    I love your show and I recognize that you try to equalize the guests. But the one guest, Kennedy was the most annoying personality on the show in a very long time. She offered nothing but fingernails on the chalk board. She was a constant distraction throughout that segment.
