Real Time for Brad Pitt, with Bill Maher Friday night EPA/JUSTIN LANE
Bill Maher will be hosting actor Brad Pitt, Twitter King Ashton Kutcher and writer Dana Gould this Friday night.
HBO's satire salon that dissects the headlines and encourages robust exchanges continues its seventh season in prime time on Friday, August 14 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), with an instant replay at 11:00 p.m. following the live presentation.
Maher moderates and provides his left-leaning perspective on contemporary issues, yet he regularly takes the Democrats to task and regularly invites key GOP politicians and pundits on the fast-paced show to offer their take on the issues.
"Real Time" includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviews with in-studio and satellite guests.
The roundtable guests this week columnist Ross Douthat, actor Ashton Kutcher and Gen. Anthony Zinni; comedian Dana Gould and actor Brad Pitt are interview guests.
Maher was the creator and host of “Politically Incorrect,” which was produced by 28 Downtown Productions and debuted on Comedy Central in 1993. The series moved to ABC in 1997, where Brad Grey Television joined HBO Downtown Productions as producers, and ended its run in 2002.
