Bill Maher has backtracked on restarting his HBO show, Real Time. After tremendous criticism, Maher got the message and backed off.
He writes today:
“My decision to return to work was made when it seemed nothing was happening and there was no end in sight to this strike. Now that both sides have agreed to go back to the negotiating table I’m going to delay the return of Real Time, for now, and hope they can finally get this done.”
Previously Maher had said he hadn’t signed on for such a long strike and would go ahead as planned with a new season.
