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.
FULL FRONTAL WITH SAMANTHA BEE airs Wednesdays at 10:30pm ET/PT on TBS. In its first four seasons, FULL FRONTAL has 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.
