Left-wing talk show host Samantha Bee’s show ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ has now been unceremoniously canceled by its parent company TBS.
As The Daily Caller reports:
“After 7 seasons, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will not be returning to TBS this fall,” a post on the show’s Twitter account said. “We’re so thankful for our loyal audience, our amazing team, and that we got to annoy the right people every week—that there wasn’t wrestling or baseball or a very special episode of Big Bang.”

“Full Frontal” often had left-wing takes on issues, including abortion, gun control, promoting the hearings of the Jan. 6 committee and demanding Merrick Garland act against former President Donald Trump.
“As we continue to shape our new programming strategy, we’ve made some difficult, business-based decisions,” a TBS spokeswoman told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’ will not return to TBS. We are proud to have been the home to ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ and thank Sam, and the rest of the Emmy-nominated team for their groundbreaking work. We celebrate this extraordinarily talented cast and crew and look forward to exploring new opportunities to work with them in the future.”
Bee had previously been a correspondent for ‘The Daily Show with John Stewart’ before gaining her own show.
