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

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.

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

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…

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.

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…

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.

    Taking smugness and self-love to a new high - or rather low. Easily the most annoying tv personality to date!

    This show is hot garbage. The host Samantha Bee is not funny she is annoying. Her skits are all negative anti-trump. She is so holier than thou that she will not cover the issues on her show impartially.

    Disrespectful and Not funny

    Not even funny. She tries too hard and pushes things that you can't relate to. I've given this show a few tries because the commercials make it look entertaining.

    Sam must have hit her head or something.

    One of the worst shows I have seen on TV. the comedy is just terrible and I don't mean funny but bad because I love almost all stand up, I mean it's like some random person that never did comedy before walked up out of the crowd drunk and started making dumb bad not funny jokes that didn't make sense or have a punch line.... I just don't understand why it exists, who would ever watch this?

    This creature is one of the most disgusting, VILE, VULGAR AND UNFUNNY PEOPLE I HAVE EVER SEEN ON TV. WHY ANYONE WOULD WATCH HER BASH AND DENIGRATE others is beyond me. she needs to have her american citizenship revoked and be deported back to canada. hope all her sponsors go the way of state farm and dump her
