    Plot Outline: Four guests from the worlds of politics and entertainment join host Bill Maher for a free-wheeling and humorous discussion of current events.
    Plot: Political talk show based on the idea that debate is stifled by too much seriousness. Guests are chosen from the worlds of politics and entertainment, often with the goal of creating conflict (ultra-sensitive special-interest groups matched with outrageous comedians). Nevertheless, a relatively friendly atmosphere is maintained, with none of the swearing or chair-throwing common on 'shock-talk' shows. Regular features have included the “Get Over Yourself” award, given to the week's most self-absorbed public figure.

    Movie Quotes: Bill Maher:”>the quote that some say got the show canceled] We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 5 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    In the two episodes “The One That Could Have Been” (Part 1 & 2) the opening credits have been changed: you see the alter-egos of the cast members in the “alternate reality” (Monica still being fat, Joey as famous actor etc.).

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Continuity: Many sudden changes of clothes.

    Trivia: There are 2 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • ABC cancelled the show even though its ratings were strong, and in some markets it was beating out "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (1992). Host Bill Maher has been quoted as saying it was because the politically conservative Walt Disney Corp., which owned ABC, didn't like his criticisms of the government of President George W. Bush.
    • ABC temporary pulled the show off the air when host Bill Maher agreed with conservative author Dinesh D'Souza that it was inappropriate to label the 9/11 hijackers as “cowards” due to the fact that they sacrificed their lives for their cause. Fed Ex and Sears withdrew their sponsorship.
