I think we can all agree that the best part of The Daily Show was and always will be Samantha Bee. Or, if we can’t all agree on that, we can at least come together on the fact that Bee’s news parody show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS is a hilarious take on today’s top news stories. No one approaches politics, gender, and the ridiculousness that is today’s media quite like Samantha Bee does. Which is why I was delighted to hear that Full Frontal With Samantha Bee is being picked up for another year by TBS. The network announced on Monday that they would be adding 26 more episodes to the show’s 2016 lineup, meaning we’ll get plenty of Samantha Bee through the end of 2016.
Praise everything that is fierce and funny, because I don’t want to live in a world where there’s no Jon Stewart and no Samantha Bee. In fact, I think this news is worth revisiting some the most memorable moments from Full Frontal with Samantha Bee in our down time today. So sit back, grab some snacks, and enjoy these memorable moments from the first 13 episodes of Full Frontal. They’ll make you even happier that the show was picked up through the rest of this year. Especially since it’s an election year.
