Default Anyone watching Bill Maher show right now?

It's so hard to watch right now. This has to be Maher's worst show.

I haven't watched that show in years. I prefer the Daily Show and Colbert. Who are the guests?

I'm guessing you hate Bill Maher because he exposes how much of a dumb ass Romney is, and basically calls out the Republican party for the crazy shit they believe.

Real time stopped being funny a few months after Obama became president.

It was good before, hearing jokes about George Bush every week never got boring.

I assume you're talking about the one with Matt Taibbi and that clown car of a panel. It was a complete melee with two smugly oblivious conservatives and some type of of fast talking cleaning lady.

Maher probably wanted to strangle his booker.

It was indeed awful. When John Fund's the one I want to hear talk you know things are bad.

He's ****ing awful. Ditch the monologue and cut New Rules in half. I get tired of him chiding the audience like they don't get it or just have a shitty sense of humor when his "jokes" bomb, dude just isn't funny.

I like the show but it's not because of him, dude's a smug asshole that knows next to nothing about policy. When Fund "bet" him about the Benghazi guy being dead inside a week and he started doing that you can't afford to bet with me shit I wanted to piss on his face.

I was thinking the same thing, that lady and the fat Russian were annoying as hell and Matt Taibbi is always awkward as f*ck, combine that with John Fund's uber-stiffness and lots of yelling and it makes for painful watching.

Good show though, its the only place where people really have at it, and despite what others have posted, I get a few solid roffles outta Bill.

Although I agree with Maher on a lot of issues, Maher doesn't seem like a "good guy" the way Jon Stewart/Colbert are. Kinda seems like he's a dick in real life and comes across as pompous. He's not as smart as he thinks he is.

But still, I do find myself agreeing with his thoughts, except on 9/11, where he is remarkably closed minded.
