American Political Show “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” Has New Time Slot
TBS has announced that the political comedy show "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" is getting renewed for a second season and is slated for a Wednesday schedule at 10:30 p.m. pacific time, different from its original Monday schedule. The move did not come as a surprise as the show had a lot of positive feedback for a show that covered the 2016 USA elections.
TBS' senior vice president of original programming said that they did not have to think twice about renewing "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee." He said Samantha Bee's popularity rose and she became one of the most talked-about personalities on late night TV. He added the audience of the show keeps on getting bigger with each episode that airs and it reached its ceiling when it covered the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton.
Samantha Bee is a host who is not afraid to voice out her political opinion and her response to the show getting renewed for another season is, "I am only sorry that this renewal leaves me unavailable for a cabinet position in the new administration," according to Entertainment Weekly. The show is very direct to the point when it tackles political issues.
One of the highlights of its first season is Bee's sit-down interview with president-elect Donald Trump. The two discussed a number of issues in the country including mass shooting in Orland, abortion laws in Texas and untested rape kits in Georgia. There were also a number of different powerful women leaders around the world who appeared as guests in the show.
"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" instantly became a hit among late night viewers as it has an average of 3.7 million viewers per episode according to Variety. There are big expectations for season 2 as so many people are hoping it would carry on with the success of Season 1.
