TBS Orders More "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee"

Critically Acclaimed, Buzz-Generating Series Expands to Full Year

It's a full year for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. TBS, a division of Turner, has ordered 26 episodes of its new series less than two months after star and executive producer Samantha Bee entered the late-night fray to widespread buzz and critical raves. TBS's order brings the total number of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee episodes to 39, which will take the show to the end of 2016.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee offers a unique, satirical take on weekly news and explores in-depth stories that have been largely overlooked by more traditional media outlets. The show airs Monday nights on TBS at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT), followed by CONAN.

"Stay crazy America, I'll be here all year!" said Samantha Bee in response to her additional episodes order.

"Sam has positioned herself as an essential voice in late night, and it's pretty clear she's struck a nerve and filled a void," said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS.

Since its premiere, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has been a critical darling, earning its host a stream of plaudits. Here are just a few:

"Hey Guys, Watch It" - New York Times

"Promises to piss off all the right people." - A.V. Club

"Thank the TV gods for Samantha Bee's new TBS show." - Business Insider

"Already tackling subjects in ways nobody else can." - Vanity Fair

"An essential voice in this political year." - Entertainment Weekly

"Once a week is just not enough for Samantha Bee." - Boston Herald

"Brimming with the keen, brutal sense of satire that made her mentor Jon Stewart the most trusted man in news." - Daily Beast

"A new reason to look forward to Mondays. - Refinery 29

"Acidly funny half-hour." -The Atlantic

On the ratings front, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is reaching an average of 3.7 million viewers per episode across TBS's linear, digital and mobile platforms. That includes Live + 7 television deliveries of a million adults 18-49 and 2.1 million total viewers. Online, clips from the show have already generated 29 million views on the Full Frontal with Samantha Bee YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/fullfrontalsamb).

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jo Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is currently being sold internationally. Entertainment One (eOne) handles the worldwide rights for the series outside of the U.S. and Canada.
