Former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee’s new 30 minute late-night talkshow, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, debuts tonight on TBS. Known for her bitting political humor, this talented satirist will be the only female host to crash through the current all-boy logjam known as late-night television. Bee has said the show will not be constructed in a typical lady-behind-the-desk format nor will it be a news clip type of show. Rather, Bee is looking to make it more of a news magazine, giving time to freely explore important topics. Bee’s husband and fellow Jon Stewart alumni, Jason Jones (The Detour), will executive produce.
