Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

TBS has renewed its Emmy Award®-winning Full Frontal with Samantha Bee for a fifth season. Recognized as one of New York's 35 Most Powerful People in Media by The Hollywood Reporter, Samantha Bee is still the "Queen Bee" reigning over Full Frontal, television's #1 ad supported late-night show among young adults. Premiering in 2016 as the only female-hosted late-night program, Full Frontal will continue to bring Bee's unique voice and worldview straight through 2020 election coverage. The show reaches nearly 4 million viewers per episode and currently boasts more than 300 million YouTube views. Full Frontal airs Wednesdays on TBS at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Additionally, TBS has renewed its first look deal with Bee's production company, Swimsuit Competition, that focuses on developing amusing original content that is definitely worth spending a weekend bingeing. Swimsuit Competition continues to seek great ideas from people who are flying under the radar, or whose work has been underestimated. The production company is so progressive it will even consider working with men. The company recently began production on The Untitled Amy Hoggart Project (wt), a spin-off series from Full Frontal correspondent Amy Hoggart.
