Guest Bookings: Colbert, Maher, DeGeneres

Arch conservative Ann Coulter duels with liberal comic Bill Maher on Sunday’s Real Time With Bill Maher (SoHo2, 9.30) — and the host “triple downs” on Stan Lee fans with a “Goodbye Mr Strips” vent.

Deadline reports the “frenemy” banter about President Trump was more jokey than stately.

Coulter, who earlier tweeted that the shutdown-ending Donald Trump was the wimpiest president in history, offered up one jokey provocation after another. On Trump’s ever-downsizing wall-turned-fence: “Now it’s a gentle little garden trellis.”

  1. And yet, a new talk show, Handler’s new effort, was billed by Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, as a reimagining of the late-night talk show for the on-demand generation is a different sort of format from the high-concept scripted series, documentaries and kiddie-show revivals Netflix has attempted so far. Will Handler be producing a five-day-a-week programme? Will she need to compete with other programmes to book guests? Will she need a writing staff at the ready? For that matter, will sidekick Chuy Bravo also make the journey from E! to OTT?
