Real Time with Bill Maher
Host: Bill Maher
Bill Maher has always got a finger to point at people and world problems, but he'll make you laugh as he does it. The veteran comedian's talk show sees him probe current events with snark and jokes. "New Rules" is his classic closer, in which he outlines would-be decrees for society in an effort to make the world into what he thinks could be a better place (though he'd probably have some trouble coming up with jokes during a hypothetical week where world events are going against his views).
Best Episode: As this is a show that leans on world events for its comedy fuel, the most recent episode is always the one most likely to incite an earnest laugh.
