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 Tuesday, March 28, 2018 from 10-11pm ET/PT, TBS premiered "The Great American Puerto Rico," a one-hour FULL FRONTAL special. Samantha Bee and her team of correspondents traveled throughout Puerto Rico and the greater Puerto Rican territory (i.e., Florida) to explore how the island is rebuilding and adapting in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Throughout the special, Full Frontal engages with Puerto Ricans on complex issues such as Puerto Rican statehood, the disastrous power blackout, and whether the Arecibo SETI telescope has actually found any aliens. Some facts about Puerto Rico:

1. Puerto Rico is enduring the largest and longest blackout in US history.

2. About 30% of Puerto Rico is still without power.

3. School enrollment has shrunk by around 22,350 students.

4. Twenty percent of the island still lacks running water.
