Premise: A talk show about current events with the former host of 'Politically Incorrect.' This weekly late-night forum is a virtual clone of 'P.I.,' with some Maher stand-up and a similarly diverse lineup of informed panelists, but this being HBO, the language is a good deal more blunt. In addition to the roundtable discussions, the show also features topical interviews with in-studio and satellite guests.
