The talk show will continue for 2 more seasons.
September 6, 2017
HBO announced today that Real Time with Bill Maher has been renewed for Seasons 17 and 18, extending its run through at least 2020. The long-running talk show has been continuing its solid performance for the cable network, due in-part to the country's increased interest in the current political landscape. During last year's presidential election, the show drew its largest average audience since 2003.
Hosted by comedian and political satirist Bill Maher, Real time is a weekly talk show featuring journalists, politicians, and celebrities who join Maher in discussing current events happening around the areas of politics and the media.
Season 17 of Real Time with Bill Maher will premiere in 2019, with Season 18 following in 2020.

Renewing this show is like agreeing not to flush your toilet for a few more years, thus ensuring it will grow into an even bigger pile of shit than it already is. Maher actually has nothing to fear as far as being canceled or renewed is concerned... I'm sure those nice folks at MSNBC would gladly give him a time slot, probably right after Rachel Maddow.

To Rodentman...5 min of watching the show and you hate it? After one post from you, you're an ignorant fool.
To Raylan125...why would you post something nobody cares about? Why would we care about your boycott? We don't. Just crawl away back under your rock.

Great! I like his show. I live in the Netherlands and get a lot of my news from political comedy talk shows like Maher's. Of course, all the hosts are biased, as am I.

There are only 2 things wrong with his show, the style and the content. He's a loud-mouthed bigoted fool who is in it only for the money. I've watched maybe 5 minutes of his garbage and that's all.

I donÂ´t always agree with Bill but I LOVE this show because he is one of the few people that actually have the guts to say how it is! People donÂ´t think for themselves anymore and everything they read on facebook is FACT. We are all going to live on this earth together and it does not matter if you hate this group of people or that group of people, someday you will have to deal with having to share table with people you think you hate ;-)

damn.. should be "ask Ice Cube".

I do not think republicans as a whole are unintelligent. Or at least no more so than their democratic counterparts. The problem is with Maher there's NOTHING "to get". He's not just funny. And really.. he's not that intelligent, it's merely "his show" I've lost count of the number of times he's clearly been mistaken in opinion so he's learned to rely on his hired fact checkers and those blue notecards because when he speaks his own mind.. he's an idiot.. as Ice Cube....

argh! my fingers do NOT obey me. And I changed my sentence.
"That is why HE does not appeal to me"

Ariel, Both Colbert (old show) and John Stewart (Daily Show) appealed to me. They were intelligent and "left leaning". Many times they were annoying. But it was funny and so I watched. I am intelligent. Bill is not funny. That is why HE does not appealing to me. Just because you don't agree with someone does not mean they are not intelligent. Chase is right about the pre-laugh. But wrong about a bad comedian. Bill is not a comedian.
