Critic Reviews for Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

In fact, Full Frontal's first episode was such a welcome jolt of energy that you might wish the show was airing every day.

Feb 9, 2016 | Full Review…

All those fans who worried that The Daily Show's go-for-the-jugular political satire left when host Jon Stewart departed last year can rest easy because Samantha Bee is bringing the pain just like Stewart used to.

If the premiere is any indication, Full Frontal will be required weekly viewing.

Top Critic

If Full Frontal were going to be on every night, I would say, unreservedly, that it had a fantastic beginning.

Top Critic

With Bee joining the fray as host of a weekly show on TBS, the new energy reaches a greater level of appeal.

Feb 12, 2016 | Full Review…

If Samantha Bee's game plan for Full Frontal, her new TBS late-night show that debuted Monday night, was to leave the audience wanting more, she certainly succeeded.

Feb 10, 2016 | Full Review…

In this season of political anxiety, Bee might be the comedy remedy you've been looking for, and the true heir to Stewart's chair.

Jan 13, 2020 | Full Review…

There's a sense watching the premiere of Full Frontal that it has arrived fully realized. That Bee's singular, pointed perspective is chiseling through some sort of glass ceiling and her voice is bellowing through it, full-throated and clear.

Mar 28, 2019 | Full Review…

This is what Bee was so good at on The Daily Show, combining absurdist humor and a razor-sharp sense of timing with legit interviewing skills for terrific field pieces.

Oct 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The no-holds barred series offers lots of fun, irreverent humor with a feminist flair.

Feb 10, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If Bee can sustain the tone she presented in this premiere episode, Full Frontal is going to be an exhilarating pleasure.

Feb 9, 2016 | Full Review…

The only thing that really matters about Full Frontal With Samantha Bee is that after the first episode was over, we wanted more. More than once a week, for sure, but if this topical comedy show stays this savagely hilarious, we'll take what we can get.

Audience Reviews for Full Frontal With Samantha Bee: Season 1

    If you didn't think there was a left wing bias with in the media just look at their score for this sub-zero "comedy"
  • Aug 20, 2020
    Its just a show about her opinions & jokes about politics and life. Its not funny. Its disrespectful. I do not know a single person that likes this show. We all would rather watch a rerun or infomercial. How is it ok to bash people for 20 minutes? If we all want a better world, do something positive !!! Not this garbage.
  • Jun 14, 2020
    Critics very wrong on this one. One of the least funny shows on TV.
  • May 08, 2020
    The gap between critics and audience scores for this show is very telling. If you want an echo chamber for your political views this is gold. If you want someone who is funny, thought provoking, or even slightly entertaining go check out Last Week Tonight.

    Obnoxious and unfunny. Who gave this woman a show? She's terrible.
  • Apr 02, 2020
    3 episodes and I'm done. She has one topic.
  • Feb 26, 2020
    Rotten Woman! If you are going to care for women, care for ALL women. Don't be a vile disgusting pig! It is people like this vile creature that are going to make sure Trump gets another term! I am not going to vote for him, but I know he will win! KNOWING that sam b will have to put up with every day of 4 more years with Trump as her President is a major gift and puts a smile on my face, a mile long! What a disgusting woman!

    Is this a joke? She bald face lies as a joke. It's like watching an alternate reality where up is down, and left is right. Just ignore facts, and believe her - and its "funny" ? What sponsors would give this show money? They might as well throw it into a bucket and light the money on fire.

    PC comedy is not funny. Its whining. I understand now more than ever why laugh tracks were invented. There really cant be anyone out there that really thinks this is funny? Right? I cant even fathom entertaining the thought that this is funny. I don't know what this is but I know it's not comedy.... Do people really find this funny? How?! How many jokes can you really make about Donald Trump and white men before it just sounds like a broken record? We get it. For the last 4 years you have been suffering so much because Bernie Sanders wasnt out there giving everything away for free.

    Horrible show! It is only still on TV because of an agenda driven station and not ratings
