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…

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…

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…

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.

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…

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.

Feb 9, 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.

Audience Reviews for Full Frontal With Samantha Bee: Season 1

  • Jan 06, 2020
    Lazy and poorly recycled material that is neither original or funny. What's actually funny is that she is referred to as a "sweetheart" when she's nothing but inept and crass. Want good intelligent humor look elsewhere.
  • Jan 02, 2020
    I can't wait to turn the channel when this ignorant liberal bitch comes on these TV.
  • Jan 01, 2020
    Do the "critics" even watch this show or just get paid to give it positive reviews? Absolutely just not funny in any way. If this was pro republican it wouldn't be funny either. It's just incredibly bad. She just tries so very hard to be funny. Nobody is gonna have the balls to cancel the show though for obvious reason.

    I never write reviews I honestly hate them. Couldn't spend more then 10 minutes watching this garbage... If this is comedy I'm on my way to my own HBO special

    Liberal anti american trash

    She tries so hard to be funny I think it's causing brain damage.
  • May 08, 2019
    Taking smugness and self-love to a new high - or rather low. Easily the most annoying tv personality to date!
  • Dec 27, 2018
    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.

    Simply not funny. Brash and rude....
  • Sep 26, 2018
    Incredibly annoying.
