Cornel West makes any show better! If there's one thing I can thank Maher for it's introducing me to him. Also a decade after it even matters I'm starting to like Matthew Perry.

I was kind of hoping Bernie Sanders would manage to compress another 8.5 hour speech into the hour somehow.

That was pretty decent. I usually disagree that the interview guest is useless, but this time the comedian guy didn't add anything.

It felt like after Colin Quinn's 5 minutes the show just went right back to panel. Good, do more of this.

I have never seen Ed Shultz before today and all I can say after this episode is I sincerely never want to see or hear him ever again.

How could you not like the liberal Rush Limbaugh? He has the #1 progressive talk radio show which shows how crappy that field is.

Ugh I swear the only positive thing about tonight's show was John Waters dirty words, and even that was weak. I'm not that familiar with Laura Flanders (some TV show on "Free Speech TV", I think had a radio show on Air America) but her attempt to get an apology from Breitbart was horrible. Also noticed how quickly Brietbart pointed out what he thought was doctored video? My wife actually yelled at the TV "Gee I wonder how he knows that!?!"

For releasing the Shirley Sherrod video edited in a way to make it sound racist. I guess he didn't though, Glenn Beck edited it? Either way that makes no sense because the unedited version is a non-story.

I was trying to figure that out too. So Glenn Beck edited Breitbart's video, for his RADIO program, and that's what got out? I dunno, I suppose I could watch it again to figure out exactly but gently caress it.

Hoooo boy, off to a horrible start. Tiger Mom turbobitch as the guest.


And bill agrees with this bitch. Which, I guess isn't surprising since he's said he hates children.

She's a moderate compared to China though so that makes her okay?

Rest of the episode was alright I guess, kind of a liberal circle-jerk. At least Zack Galifianakis seemed to get less time this episode. Teehee, he pretended to do heroin on the air OMG that's so ..... something.

Lack of empathy for fellow human beings seems to be the defining trait in people like this guy and almost all conservatives/republicans. Why do they hate their fellow man so much!?

Well life isn't fair, it's tough, and their fellow man just didn't try hard enough. Generally that's what they believe and ignore any one ups they themselves had.

Yea Gillespie bothered me more then the usual conservative on Maher's panel. I say this after Anne Coulter recently being on!

Maybe it was Maher being really pissed at Obama, or Neil deGrasse Tyson and Anthony Bourdain; but I thought this was a pretty good episode and season finale.

A retarded coworker of mine uses that phrase all the time, also "you know when you think about it ....". I just know right after the word crutches comes a steaming pile of nonsense.

Awesome episode, I feel Bill was just channeling what many felt watching the GOP convention this week.

Stern has his stupid network talent show job to lose. Even though he didn't specifically bring it up you know bill was thinking "I got kicked off network tv for my opinion? Look at what this idiot thinks" what that bit.

I find most people who dislike Stern do so because "OMG naked ladies on radio!", if anything the masses probably agree with his then lovely opinion of Muslims. These same people probably watch that drivel talent show too.

Bill seems to suffer what I notice from a lot of boomers, they view the generation after them as lazy and spoiled. Great every generation does this, so what's their proof? After anecdotal evidence about smartphones and not being outside more they have nothing! Basic things like cost of living, education costs, actual retirement tilt way more in their favor; so all they have to throw at us is iPhones and the perception we don't work hard enough or something. "Tiger Mom" just boosts Maher's view of this, just like that 3 minute sidetrack with PJ O'Rourke the other week.

Since Maher is on break I've been checking out Vice News more on weekday evenings, it's not bad. I wonder what the ratings are since HBO isn't exactly known for newscasts? Documentaries sure, but not a daily source of headlines.
