Why would HBO, cable's most innovative network -- and I say that with neither irony nor some iron hand of AOL Time Warner corporate synergy on my shoulder -- think it's a good idea to let Bill Maher bring the skeleton of his canceled ABC show, ''Politically Incorrect,'' and stuff it into the tattered corpse of ''Dennis Miller Live''? That's all Real Time With Bill Maher is: a live hour in which the sour comedian regathers old friends like hate-spewing harridan Ann Coulter to yammer about the evils of affirmative action and feminism. On Maher's premiere, former HBO stalwart Chris Rock dropped in for a few seconds and exploded the dull conversation; when he exited, any life left with him.
