Renewed: Full Frontal With Samantha Bee
Absent from Australian screens but Samantha Bee gets a seventh season in the USA.
Full Frontal With Samantha Bee has been renewed for a seventh season in the USA.
“I’m beyond excited to be returning to TBS for a seventh season,” said Bee. “Now we have enough seasons for you to binge one every day of the week. I warned you I was tenacious.”
TBS, TNT and TruTV general manager Brett Weitz said, “Shining a spotlight on important issues and people, Sam provides needed commentary and asks questions of authority and ourselves that need to be asked. But most of all, Sam is just funny and makes me laugh out loud each week. I’m thrilled she will continue to call TBS home.”
The show is averaging 2.9 million US viewers per episode across all platforms.
But the show has recently vanished from Australian screens.
In May an SBS spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Like other broadcasters and channels, we constantly assess our programming mix to ensure SBS is providing a distinctive offer and new content to all Australians.
“We love Samantha Bee, and are proud that SBS VICELAND and SBS On Demand could provide a home for ∫ fans over five seasons, during which time the show provided an important satirical take on the Trump presidency from one of the all too few women in late night.”
