Samantha Bee’s late night show ‘Full Frontal’ was canceled after 7 seasons.
Recall, Samantha Bee attacked Ivanka Trump after the First Daughter tweeted out a photo of herself with her little boy in 2018.
Samantha Bee called Ivanka a “c*nt.”
Autotrader and State Farm suspended their sponsorships with the vulgar comedian in 2018.
On Monday it was announced that TBS axed Samantha Bee’s show.
Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” is getting a kick in the rear from Warner Bros. Discovery.
The show, which became a signature program for the large cable network TBS, “will not return to the network in the fall,” according to a statement from Bee’s representatives.
“As we continue to shape our new programming strategy, we’ve made some difficult, business-based decisions,” TBS said in a statement. “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.”
Warner Bros. Discovery has been cutting back on its content spend for big cable networks like TBS and TNT. To be sure, the outlets continue to feature movies and have added more nights of sports, thanks to a recent rights deal struck between Warner Bros. Discovery and the NHL. But TBS has been cutting back on scripted series, with shows such as “Chad” and “The Last O.G.” scrapped in recent weeks. Brett Weitz, general manager of TBS, TNT and TruTV, left the company in May after the cable networks were consolidated under the aegis of Warner Bros. Discovery executive Kathleen Finch. Weitz had been a strong backer of “Full Frontal.”
Samantha Bee isn’t even funny.
She recently admitted she’s just a Democrat activist who plays an unfunny comedian on TV.
