In anticipation of the new series premiere, watch the TBS promo. It is exactly what fans would expect from Bee -- straight-faced yet absurd, and it is a Star Wars sendup, to boot. Here's how TBS parent company Turner describes Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, in press materials (please note, the premiere month has changed to February):

Former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee might be the lone woman on late-night TV when her new show Full Frontal debuts, but she's okay with that. As it turns out, she's got bigger balls than all the rest of her sausage-fest of competitors combined. Colbert, you've been warned:And Bee's most recent promo (unveiled Monday), received the Star Wars treatment (topical!) to let prospective viewers know that "a new warrior is joining the [late-night] battle" – and that she definitely, always shoots first: You can expect Bee, as well as much more mayhem, in February. »

“When we run, ain’t no white man gon’ be able to stop us.”
That’s the only line of dialogue you’ll hear in the teaser trailer for Wgn America’s Underground, but it sure is a powerful one.
Slated to premiere in early 2016, the one-hour drama follows a group of slaves who plan a daring escape from a Georgia plantation, aided along the way by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad. Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: Svu), Aldis Hodge (Leverage) and »
The teaser opens with yellow lettering against a black space background before going into a cantina similar to the one Luke Skywalker visits in “Star Wars: A New Hope.” Once inside Bee, dressed like a Jedi, explains her weekly series while also struggling to turn off her laser sword.
After slaughtering most of the bar’s patrons, she comforts one and continues to describe her show.
“Anyway, if you like smart, edgy satire about world events then you are going to love my show,” Bee says.
At New York Comic Con last month, Bee talked about seeing a Vanity Fair photo spread on late night hosts which included only men.
“I got so angry. I was just like f— you,” she saud. “I think people are feeling exhausted by it, »

Ian Karmel is a standup comic, doesn’t want to be anything but a standup comic, and, if everything goes to plan, will one day soon be famous as a standup comic.
But if you’re a TV or digital media fan, you might be less likely to know who Karmel is than what he brainstormed: the “Crosswalk: The Musical” series on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” that went viral online, helping put that freshman show on the map.
For decades, latenight TV has been the driver of comedians like Karmel to their dream destiny, most famously with Johnny Carson behind the wheel. While cable and digital have put more vehicles on the road after dark, the recent turnover in hosts hasn’t necessarily opened up the fast lane for comics to stardom.

Samantha Bee knows she's about to become the only woman in late night, but she won't let that fact stop her from becoming a centaur and shooting lasers out of her eyes. At a New York Comic Con panel with her husband Jason Jones (the couple is executive-producing both Bee's Full Frontal and Jones's TBS comedy, Detour), Bee reflected on the origins of her infamous response to Vanity Fair's dudes-only late-night photo, which has since become part of the show's official marketing, with comics artist Cat Staggs producing a cover-worthy portrait of the laser-centaur. "Jason and I were at a pumpkin patch with our children," Bee recalled. "When you're negligent parents, you check your Twitter when your children are playing. Someone tweeted the [Vanity Fair] photo to me, and I was so angry. Like, Fuck you! So I just tweeted that photo, and I think it tapped into something. Like, »

Samantha Bee was visiting a pumpkin patch on Long Island with her husband and three children last month when she first saw the recent Vanity Fair photo spread on late-night hosts — a group of 10 men, including Trevor Noah who had yet to premiere as “Daily Show” host.
“I got so angry. I was just like f— you,” she told the crowd Friday at New York Comic Con. She immediately doctored the photo to superimpose her face on a manly torso attached to a horse over the group. From the side of a stand selling apple cider, she tweeted out the picture with the the word “Better,” sparking a round of conversation about the dearth of women in late-night.
“I think people are feeling exhausted by it,” she said. “Can’t we just have a f—— woman’s face in that lineup. Just one time – please?”

TBS has pulled the plug on its reality-competition series “King of the Nerds” after three seasons.
The show produced by Electus featured “nerd off” competitions among teams of contestants vying for the ultimate title of “King of the Nerds.” Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong, stars of the 1984 comedy “Revenge of the Nerds,” served as hosts. Armstrong announced the cancellation via Twitter on Friday.
Dearest nerds! Deeply sorry to announce that @KingofNerdsTBS will not be returning for a 4th season. Hard to find words now. #nerdsrule

“Nerds” wrapped its most recent eight-episode run in March.
The departure of “Nerds” is no surprise as the new regime at Turner has vowed to make significant changes in the tone of TBS’ comedy programming. Earlier this week TBS began its promo push for the upcoming late-night talk show hosted by “Daily Show” alum Samantha Bee, “Full Frontal.”

Samantha Bee has the balls to do late night with the boys.
Bee was a correspondent on The Daily Show, as well as a possible replacement for when Jon Stewart left, but decided to move to TBS and do her own satirical show. The show will go alongside a comedy on the channel that she is producing, which stars her husband (and former Daily Show correspondent) Jason Jones with Natasha Zea and follows loosely on their family’s comedic travels.

After leaving her more than 12-year tenure on "The Daily Show with John Stewart" earlier this year, comedian Samantha Bee is finally getting her very own show. Following the path of her fellow former correspondents Stephen Colbert, John Oliver and Larry Wilmore, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" will be a late night topical comedy talk show in a format similar to "The Daily Show." Read More: Watch: Samantha Bee is "Female as F-ck" and Crashing the Sausage Party That is Late-Night TV In the above video, Bee assures her viewers that she can host a late night show just as well as any of her male peers, urging audiences to tune in for her "nuanced perspectives on world events" and her "repartee with news-makers from across the ideological spectrum." Then, just to make sure her point is clear, she wraps things up by flashing the camera her own pair of "10-pound lady balls. »

This morning TBS unveiled the second of what appears to be a series of Samantha Bee-snarks-on-male-body-parts promos for her upcoming topical show. The program has been given a name: Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, and a January premiere, but no launch date or timeslot were announced. Most money is on the post-Conan timeslot formerly occupied by Pete Holmes and George Lopez, on the assumption Full Frontal will be a weeknight latenight show. "Don't watch my new show just… »
Samantha Bee‘s TBS show finally has a name: “Full Frontal.” The newest promo is appropriate given the title, but extremely inappropriate in every other way. “When TBS asked me to host a sharp, topical late-night comedy show, I realized a lot of people would focus on the fact that I’m a woman entering a male-dominated field,” Bee starts off. “But don’t watch my new show just because I’m a woman. Watch because of my nuanced perspective on world events, my repartee with newsmakers from across the ideological spectrum …” “… And of course, these: my 10-pound lady balls, »

The former “Daily Show” correspondent formally announced Wednesday that her new TBS program will be called “Full Frontal” and will debut in January. In a raunchy promo placed on YouTube, Bee placed heavy emphasis on the fact that her program will be the only one in the time slot hosted by a woman.
Bee did not reveal what time her new program will run.
Bee is likely to be the last major entrant into a time period in the midst of tremendous change. Over the last two years, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Chelsea Handler, Jon Stewart and Craig Ferguson have stepped down. There are relatively new faces behind the desk at nearly every major program that airs around the end of the day. »

Full frontal male nudity is hard to come by in most major motion pictures. But hat doesn’t mean there isn’t an abundance of phallic imagery in a lot of movies that you’ve seen, and we’re not just talking about sex comedies. The folks at Now You See It have put together a video that takes […]

Jerry Weintraub, the colorful and controversial producer whose films included “Nashville,” “Diner,” “The Karate Kid” and the trio of “Ocean’s Eleven” films, died Monday of cardiac arrest in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was 77. He had been in poor health recently.
When he received Variety‘s Creative Leadership Award in 2013, Weintraub told Variety that he had a yacht and a Rolls-Royce, but was “not a big Hollywood guy.” Some would disagree. He was actually an old-school Hollywood showman, who understood the relationship between production and marketing. He was also a snappy dresser — his shoes were colorful and fun — who knew how to work the room and how to work the press: He was always available to the media and when he had a film in release, he knew how to maximize public awareness.
But the showiness was backed by hard work. His savvy came after decades of performing in many different jobs in the industry. »
