Maher holds the record for the most Emmy nominations without a win, having been nominated on 22 occasions and not winning once.Eleven of the nominations were for Politically Incorrect, while nine were for Real Time.
He added: “Let me tell you what means something to a guy, trying. “When he feels that you’re not even trying to contribute, that’s when he feels used. The other two were nominations for two of his HBO comedy specials: I'm Swiss and Bill Maher: The Decider.In late May 2005, Alabama Congressman Spencer Bachus sent a letter to Time Warner's board of directors requesting Real Time be canceled after remarks Maher made after noting the military had missed its recruiting goals by 42 percent.In the segment "New Rules" at the end of each show, Maher delivers a humorous editorial on popular culture and American politics. It has been nominated for more than ten Primetime Emmy Awards and six Writer's Guild awards.In 2007, Maher and his co-producers were awarded the Television Producer of the Year Award in Variety Television by the Producers Guild of America.Maher began appearing on Johnny Carson's and David Letterman's shows in 1982.
Maher assumed the host role on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, a late-night political talk show that ran on Comedy Central from 1993 to 1997 and on ABC from 1997 to 2002.
ABC decided against renewing Maher's contract for Politically Incorrect in 2002, after he made a controversial on-air remark six days after the September 11 attacks. On June 22, 2002, just six days after the cancellation of Politically Incorrect, Maher received the Los Angeles Press Club president's award (for "championing free speech").
He agreed with his guest, conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza, that the 9/11 terrorists did not act in a cowardly manner (in rebuttal to President Bush's statement calling them cowards). In 2003, Maher became the host, co-producer and co-writer of Real Time with Bill Maher, a weekly hour-long political comedy talk show on the cable television network HBO.

The Office of Nightlife will also be tasked with working to reverse dated legislation like the city’s cabaret law— a rule dating back to the Prohibition era that requires venues to have cabaret licenses, a.k.a, a license that allows folks to dance.
Bachus said he felt the comments were demeaning to the military and treasonous.
