Maher’s targets this week include Attorney General William Barr, the Washington showdown over the Mueller report and, of course, his bete noire: “Democrats don’t seem to get it. You know, ‘It’s in the rules,’ is not an argument that works on Donald Trump. You’re playing Monopoly with a hyena.”

Prime’s 11th hour decision to strip Game of Thrones’ final season from May 11 will pre-empt 60 Minutes, The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away and Ross Kemp: Extreme World.

Duke has replaced Monday’s night’s 9.25 double-episode of South Park with a new episode of The Orville.

Tonight’s Sunday (TVNZ 1, 7.30) investigates the unregulated world of DIY sperm donation, tracks down down the country’s biggest donor and interviews the women who’ve had his babies and who want him to stop.
