Real Time With Bill Maher features interview with End of Faith author Sam Harris

This week on Real Time With Bill Maher, includes an interview with author Sam Harris and Michael Eric Dyson. Harris is an American author and neuroscientist, whose 2004 book End of Faith was on the NYTimes best-seller list for over 30 weeks. He’s also a strong advocate of the separation of the church and state, as well as the freedom to criticise religions. We wonder what he will have to say on President Trump’s plans to: “get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment and allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear of retribution.” A fairly meaningless...read more

That is intellectually ridiculous."

The Gone Girl actor asks, "Hold on — are you the person who officially understands the codified doctrine of Islam?" He continues with, "(Your characterization) is gross and racist. It's like saying, 'Oh, you shifty Jew!;"

Pajiba After Dark 10/4/10

  • Pajiba
For all the shows on tonight, there's surprisingly little that seems worth watching. The 9pm hour is basically a total wash for me, nothing of interest at all, and 10pm only works because you've got a choice of "Hoarders" (if you want to be disgusted and scared into being neater) or "Castle" (if you're nostalgic for other, non-procedural shows starring Nathan Fillion). There's always the football game for those of us who like football, but really, Monday is shaping up to be a depressing night for television if you're not a fan of a few very specific shows featured on The CW or enjoy watching stars dancing. Here's your Monday night TV:

"Chuck" on NBC

"Dancing With the Stars" on ABC

"House" on Fox

"How I Met Your Mother" on CBS

"Little People, Big World" on Tlc. I always seem to find something vaguely insulting or distasteful about this show,
