REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER
HBO, 10:00 p.m. Maher’s scheduled guests tonight include actress Eva Longoria and Newark, NJ mayor Cory Booker, both of whom have been on the show before, and are comfortably outspoken. Two of the other guests, though, are sure to tackle the third-rail issue of religion. Alex Gibney is the documentary filmmaker behind Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, which premieres next week on HBO. And Sam Harris is the neuroscientist and author whose best sellers include the provocative The End of Faith. - via TV Worth Watching
