TBS made the smart decision to pick up Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” through 2016! The network has ordered 26 new episodes, which will air on Mondays at 10:30pm. Samantha Bee’s show has been night and day better than The Daily Show lately and on par with Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO. I’m looking forward to checking out what else Bee has to say on Monday nights!
Samantha Bee, who has delivered scathing topical humor at the helm of TBS’ new “Full Frontal” for the last several weeks, has lot more to laugh about.
TBS said it had ordered an additional 26 episodes of her comedic talk show, which means the program will air 39 episodes in total through the end of the year. The Time Warner-owned cable outlet had initially ordered 13 episodes of the series. The nod lends ballast to the series, which has already generated critical plaudits in its early days and has expanded the profile of its host, a veteran faux-news correspondent of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” who is one of the few female hosts in the expanding late-night genre.
