As for this show, I can't "tune in" since I no longer have HBO ...
I'm in the same boat too.

I actually never really saw it all that much when it was on. I saw bits and pieces when my parents watched it, but at the time it was on, I was at an age where I was not as interested in political debates as I am now.

But yeah, it is a shame that a show gets cancelled because of something like that (he never said that those people's courage meant they were right in doing what they did, after all. He just said that they had the courage to fly a plane into a building. And he's right. You have to have no fear in you in order to do something like that. But you can have no fear and still have the actual event you are carrying out be utterly stupid).

Maybe so. Who knows? I mean, if people were offended, they had every right to be, but at the same time, as I said earlier, the title does (or should, anyway) kinda warn you ahead of time of what you may be hearing. But regardless, okay, you're offended and you express your opinion, fine. You certainly have every right to do so. But it's stupid that his show gets pulled off the air because of that. So the offended have their chance at free speech, but he has to stop his show?

Heh. Yeah, I didn't agree with what he was saying, either. But I still noticed he wished he had at least one person on his side... Bet he wished that Scaroborough (sp?) guy was sitting at the table with him, 'cause that guy seemed most likely to side with him.

*Nods*. And ILuvLarryMullen, LOL, the title of that one book sounds funny! I may have to keep an eye out for those.

I remember a "New Rules" bit from...sometime earlier this year in which he commented on Constantine being voted off "American Idol". I can't remember now what all he said exactly-something about the fact that Constantine always seemed to be hitting on people through the TV or something along that line. I just know for sure that it was hysterical.

Also, MsMofoGone, you're in central time, right? Just look around for eastern times on some internet site or other, and you can go back from there to figure out what time it'd be on where you live, so that you could get your friend to get the show for you.

And again, considering that HBO has no restrictions on language or anything along that line, my guess is you shouldn't be disappointed with the show, that you may find it better than "Politically Incorrect".

just for you Angela

NEW RULES - April 29, 2005

New Rule: Rejected "American Idol" contestant, Constantine Maroulis must be destroyed. Because he kept trying to f*** me through my television set. I don't know why you singled me out, Constantine Maroulis, but I didn't fall for it. Sure, you may have the smoky, sexy voice of a rock-and-roll bad boy, the lean stature of a Greek god and a sultry gaze that makes my loins stir, but that doesn't make me gay!

There we go! I love that last sentence in particular .

Thank you, Lila .

Politically Incorrect was one of the BEST late night talk shows on T.V. I loved all the guests who participated in being part of the panel. As for Bill's comment and why the show was cancelled ... it was totally stupid for that to happen as Bill has said rather strong comments about Presidents Bush and Clinton in the past and never got into trouble like he did regarding the comment about those airplane pilots on 9/11.

I'll probably like it just as much as Politically Incorrect.
Although as for fowl language ... I wouldn't think it would be necessary for him to go that far ...

Yeah, I know it sure got some good discussion going in my household (now you know where I got my opinionated nature from ). Shame I didn't think to watch it more.

Yeah, really. Course, then again, people are used to hearing jokes about the president. They just didn't expect anyone to start making off-color remarks about something as big as 9/11, especially not right after it had happened, which, as I understand, again, was when the offending comment was made.

But meh.... People are interesting in regards to what offends them.

Heh, well, actually, he doesn't swear all that often, sorry if I gave you that impression. No, I was referring more to the fact that HBO doesn't care if people are politically incorrect about what the ysay. Hell, that channel's made a career out of shows and movies that tend to make the public go, "Oh, my god, did you see/hear what happened on such-and-such program/movie recently ?" But yeah, that's more what I was getting at in regards to language and whatnot-sorry if I confused you or something .

Sometimes, he seemed really serious especially when Clinton had that fiasco with Monica Lewinsky.

If he was gonna EVER get 'busted' for what he said, it should have been during that matter ...

Yeah, I know what you mean, HBO is GOOD for not editing out
anything !!
Although, I didn't misunderstand you ... I just don't see why they need to show people doing or saying certain things, that are NOT necessary to make that program GOOD.
I guess that is what cable is all about ...

I believe he was cancelled because of the advertisers, they were withdrawing their $$, probably claimed the people complained and they could not be associated with said show...

You are all really lucky that you can watch him....

We have (I guess) a German equivalent to Bill. His name is Harald Schmidt. He can say almost (well not almost - I think everything) everything he wants to.... it's just great... but the problem is he had first been on SAT. 1 which was great, he had a guest and it lasts about 50 min. netto. And now (after a 1 year break) he's on another channel and only twice in the week without a guest.... it's not the same... but he still is GREAT!
If anyone speaks german and has the chance to watch "Die Harald Schmidt Show" on ARD - don't miss it!

I tried finding this the other day, but it wasn't up online yet. Found that Irvine511 in FYM had posted this, so I'm posting it here as well...

Suggestion from Bill Maher last Friday night:


And finally, New Rule: America must recall the president. That's - that's what this country needs. A good, old-fashioned, California-style recall election! Complete with Gary Coleman, porno actresses and action film stars. And just like Schwarzenegger's predecessor here in California, George Bush is now so unpopular, he must defend his jog against ... Russell Crowe. Because at this point, I want a leader who will throw a phone at somebody. In fact, let's have only phone throwers. Naomi Campbell can be the vice-president!

Now, I kid, but seriously, Mr. President, this job can't be fun for you anymore. There's no more money to spend. You used up all of that. You can't start another war because you also used up the army. And now, darn the luck, the rest of your term has become the Bush family nightmare: helping poor people.

Yeah, listen to your mom. The cupboard's bare, the credit card's maxed out, and no one is speaking to you: mission accomplished!

Now it's time to do what you've always done best: lose interest and walk away.

Like you did with your military service. And the oil company. And the baseball team. It's time. Time to move on and try the next fantasy job. How about cowboy or spaceman?!

Now, I know what you're saying. You're saying that there's so many other things that you, as president, could involve yourself in ... Please don't. I know, I know, there's a lot left to do. There's a war with Venezuela, and eliminating the sales tax on yachts. Turning the space program over to the church. And Social Security to Fannie Mae. Giving embryos the vote. But, sir, none of that is going to happen now. Why? Because you govern like Billy Joel drives. You've performed so poorly I'm surprised you haven't given yourself a medal. You're a catastrophe that walks like a man.

Herbert Hoover was a shitty president, but even he never conceded an entire metropolis to rising water and snakes.

On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four airliners, two Trade Centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the City of New Orleans...Maybe you're just not lucky!

I'm not saying you don't love this country. I'm just wondering how much worse it could be if you were on the other side. So, yes, God does speak to you, and what he's saying is, "Take a hint."

Oh, I gotcha now. I see what you were saying. Sorry for misunderstanding . I do agree with you-I do think sometimes people put things in there just for the hell of it...but then again, what's seen as pointless to me may come across differently to someone else, so.... Meh. Everyone's got a different view.

Also, Lila, hehe, I'll second that . Didn't he also say something the other night about how he does love this country, it's just that the actions of a few people tend to drive him nuts? I wholeheartedly agree with that.
