Gubernatorial candidate Lincoln Chafee will be Bill Maher’s guest tonight on HBO at 10pm, repeated at 11pm and throughout the week. They ought to get along famously now that I think about it — I’m not sure about the pot and the mushrooms and the strippers — but they are both ardent environmentalists. And Maher admires politicians who take principled stands. Thank you Rhode Island’s Future for the heads-up on this. How this got by me I can’t imagine as I watch Real Time with Bill Maher religulously. If you don’t have cable, find someone who does.
10pm, HBO, Friday (full schedule)
