His latest book, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody but Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass,” was published in November and made the New York Times bestseller list.

He is also author of the books “When You Ride Alone You Ride with Bin Laden: What the Government Should Be Telling Us to Help Fight the War on Terrorism,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? The Best of Politically Incorrect” and the novel “True Story.” Maher produced and starred in the 2008 feature film “Religulous,” the seventh most successful documentary of all time.

    When HBO canceled Deadwood, I vowed never again to subscribe. Bill the dickhead helps keep me true to that vow.

  • John Vandy

    Eric Atkinson is an idiot. Pay no attention to him.

  • Patsy Gliatta

    I cancelled after the John Adams series ended. Since they renewed Bill Maher for two more years that’s two more years I won’t be watching HBO.
