Beverly Hills, CA (The Hollywood Times) 7/26/17 – TBS’ FULL FRONTAL, a late-night talk and news satire program, premiered on February 8th, 2016. It is hosted by comedian Samantha Bee, a former correspondent on THE DAILY SHOW for 12 years.
FULL FRONTAL’s second season began on February 15th, 2017. It airs on Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. EST.
At the time of its debut, FULL FRONTAL was the only airing late-night talk show in the United States that was hosted by a woman. On October 31st, 2016, FULL FRONTAL ran an interview Bee conducted with President Barack Obama.
The show airs in Australia, Canada, Germany, and New Zealand as well as the United States and also travels around the world to cover international stories. It has been widely praised and even called the most mercilessly feminist show in history by WIRED’s cultural critic Virginia Hefferman.
Samantha Bee took late night by storm with her bare-knuckled coverage of the 2016 Presidential election, and she still has her watchful eye on Washington! At her editor’s request this reporter tuned in to FULL FRONTAL on the evening of Wednesday, July 26th to see what this Nasty Woman had to say.
“Every day at the White House is Take Your Daughter To Work Day!” Bee exclaimed in her opening comments. No kidding, we noticed! Nepotism is still a no-no–and everyone in the Trump family is lawyering up.
The rule of law is facing its own set of challenges. According to Ms. Bee, “We don’t make bullshit discriminatory laws on Twitter. That’s what Congress is for!” TOTALLY.
Tax cuts at the top will pay for themselves with growth! This old Republican myth is alive and well.
And there is a LOT of money to be made telling rich people what they want to hear. Trust us!
Watch FULL FRONTAL if these tasty little sound bites have whetted your appetite for the fray. A laugh and a half a day keeps Donald Trump at bay.
