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.
On Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, TBS premiered FULL FRONTAL WITH SAMANTHA BEE's "NOT the White House Correspondents' Dinner" special. Hosted by Samantha Bee, the event takes place at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., where approximately 2,600 guests attend this alternate ceremony earlier in the day, which is held about two miles from where the actual White House Correspondents' Dinner takes place. TBS's proceeds from "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" go to the Committee to Protect Journalists (

Twitter also serves as a broadcast partner, streaming an uncensored broadcast of the event at 11pm ET and hosting an hour-long red carpet special hosted by FULL FRONTAL's team of correspondents, beginning at 9pm ET. And yes, #NotTheWHCD has an emoji.
