“Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” has been renewed for a second season at TBS, the network announced Wednesday.
“I am only sorry that this renewal leaves me unavailable for a cabinet position in the new administration,” Bee said. “I will, however, be available to host the White House Correspondents Dinner, seeing as I already bought the dress.”
In addition, the network announced that the series will move from Monday night to Wednesdays beginning on Jan. 11. Bee, a former “Daily Show” correspondent, took late-night by storm when her show premiered in February.
The show currently reaches an average of 3.3 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms and ranks as one of television’s top three late-night series with adults 18-49 for the quarter to date.
“Of course we’re picking up the show,” said Thom Hinkle, senior vice president of original programming for TBS. “In less than a year, Sam has become one of the most talked-about personalities in all of television and ‘Full Frontal’s’ audience continues to grow. We’re so lucky to have Sam and her Emmy-nominated team, led by the brilliant Jo Miller, as part of the TBS family.”
“Full Frontal” is executive-produced by Bee, her husband Jason Jones, Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.
