Studio 33 Transforms for "Real Time"
« on: January 20, 2017, 06:09:43 PM »
HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher has taped in Studio 33 for years, and is getting an all-new set for 2017. Check out how they go from a freshly-struck Price set to the new one.

Interesting how much actually stays. Rather than pulling up the Goodson daisies in front of Contestants' Row, they just put the black floor over top of them. It appears that wall to the left of the turntable is semi-permanent as well.

Fascinating. This is actually kind of a big deal as I don't think Real Time has had real major set change since it began.

I didn't even know about this. Can't wait to see it tonight.

Did anyone notice that at the 20 second mark there were several seats removed to install some computers at the base of the stage? And does anyone know what their purpose is?

I would imagine that is his producer's table.
Glad they aren't my council-people.
