Plot Synopsis

DAILY SHOW alum Samantha Bee hosts FULL FRONTAL, a weekly late-night talk show that features her nuanced view of political and cultural issues, her sharp interview skills, and her repartee with world leaders. The series does not have a desk, guests or sketches; instead, FULL FRONTAL features remote segments with Samantha going into the field to file reports on various topics, injecting satire into important newsworthy issues that affect marginalized people. In the season opener Samantha explores whether the Veterans Administration is prepared to treat women, who will comprise a much larger percentage of combat veterans. For its series premiere, FULL FRONTAL debuted at 10:30pm ET/PT on TBS with a simulcast on TNT, truTV, Adult Swim, and HLN.

In its first four seasons, FULL FRONTAL garnered an Outstanding Writing Emmy and a WGA Award for its two Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner specials honoring a free press, as well as seventeen Emmy nominations, an additional WGA Award nomination, a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information, two additional TCA Award nominations, two PGA nominations and four DGA nominations.

During the fifth season, Bee blazed an actual trail from her NYC studio to her backyard, where she taped new episodes during the pandemic with help from her husband and fellow Executive Producer, Jason Jones.

Season 6 of FULL FRONTAL WITH SAMANTHA BEE premiered on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 10:30pm ET/PT on TBS. "It's a huge honor to get to keep doing this crazy smart and silly show for a sixth season," said Bee. "Is it official though? Are we still waiting for Pennsylvania to certify the sixth season?"
Moving to Thursday nights, the seventh season of FULL FRONTAL WITH SAMANTHA BEE debuted on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 10pm ET/PT on TBS. Samantha brings a unique perspective to stories inside the Beltway and beyond, from sexual harassment in the media to the "boyfriend loophole," and from global warming to child marriage in the United States.
