Apparently women are allowed to host late-night talk shows, because veteran Daily Show correspondent, Samantha Bee, is headed to TBS in February 2016, in Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
In anticipation of the new series premiere, watch the TBS promo. It is exactly what fans would expect from Bee — straight-faced yet absurd, and it is a Star Wars sendup, to boot. Here’s how TBS parent company Turner describes Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, in press materials (please note, the premiere month has changed to February):
About Full Frontal with Samantha Bee
One of the most unique and visible comedic voices on television is coming to TBS in Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Breaking up late-night’s all-male sausage fest, this new show from the longtime Daily Show correspondent will feature Samantha’s nuanced view of political and cultural issues, her sharp interview skills, her repartee with world leaders and, of course, her 10-pound lady balls. Set to premiere in January 2016 on TBS and its digital and mobile platforms, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is executive-produced by Samantha and her husband, Jason Jones.
