Full Frontal with Samantha Bee: 11 Best Moments So Far

Since the premiere of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on February 8, 2016, we have become obsessed. We never miss an episode, and we're constantly encouraging our friends and family to watch it as well. Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is a hard-hitting political satire show with the only woman in late night (at least for now)! She makes us laugh, sometimes makes us cry, and always forces us to think critically about the world around us. Let's take a look at the 11 segments we love the most so far on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee!   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/slideshows/full-frontal-with-samantha-bee-11-best-moments-so-far/

TBS and Samantha Bee Celebrate Seven Emmy(R) Nominations for "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee"

The series earned its first primetime Emmy(R) nomination for Outstanding Variety Talk Series this morning, less than 18 months after its launch.  ...Read More... //www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2017/07/13/tbs-and-samantha-bee-celebrate-seven-emmy-nominations-for-full-frontal-with-samantha-bee-173110/20170713tbs01/

Emmy Awards 2017: 9 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

It's hard out there for an Emmy voter. Trying to limit a list of the year's best television performers and shows to just five or six spots is insane. And yet, it must be done. This year's Emmy nominees include some welcomed surprises, some disappointing autopilot picks, and some outrageous snubs. (See the full list of nominees here .)   Surprise! Milo Ventimiglia, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series for This Is Us Fellow This Is Us nominees Sterling K. Brown, Ron Cephas Jones, and (bizarrely) Chrissy Metz were expected, but Ventimiglia's was more of a longshot. The NBC hit received 11 nominations.   Snub! Rachel Bloom, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Once again, Emmy voters proved they are allergic to The CW, home to two of television's sharpest and funniest comedies, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin . What more does Gina Rodriguez have to do?! Bloom did receive a nomination for songwriting, however, along with Adam Schlesinger and Jack Dolgen.   Snub and Surprise! Carrie Coon, Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie for Fargo Fargo is beloved by the Television Academy, so Coon's nomination here isn't a total surprise. But it is somewhat shocking that she was recognized for this role and not the three seasons of exceptional work on The Leftovers (Justin Theroux also was left out).   Snub! Legion What the actual… This FX series was the TV season's most creative new drama and both Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza deserved to be recognized for taking big swings in complicated roles. I mean, not even a technical category nomination? (In related news, Mr. Robot also was shut out of the major categories.)   Surprise! Saturday Night Live SNL (and Westworld ) led the tally for the most nominations (22) and claimed a surprising three spots in the Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series category, for the departing Vanessa Bayer, Leslie Jones, and last year's winner, Kate McKinnon. This category is a total shitshow, though. Just a few of the snubs: Rita Moreno, Jane Krakowski, Donna Lynne Champlin.   Surprise! Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Not only was Full Frontal With Samantha Bee nominated for Outstanding Variety Talk Series, along with Bee as host, but the show's Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner special also picked up four nods. All hail Queen Bee. Back to the Outstanding Variety Talk Series category, Jimmy Fallon's bad year just got a little worse; the show was ignored.   Surprise! Jane Fonda, Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for Grace And Frankie I actually think Fonda's work is more difficult and interesting than fellow nominee Lily Tomlin's, but this still is a pleasant surprise. This category is full of snubs, though. Besides the ladies of The CW, HBO's Issa Rae and Sarah Jessica Parker, Fleabag 's Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and approximately 100 other killer performers were left out.   Snub! Oprah Winfrey, Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie for The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks The HBO film was nominated for Outstanding Television Movie, but Winfrey was rebuffed. Felicity Huffman took the spot instead for American Crime . Winfrey is not crying about this; she has plenty of awards. Still, this makes no sense.   Surprise! Zach Galifianakis, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series for Baskets While his costar Louie Anderson was a lock in the supporting race, Galifianakis was not. He deserves the nod, though. Emmy love for Baskets is truly a treat.   Bits and pieces: Who would have thought that Alexis Bledel (Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series) would be nominated for an Emmy before Lauren Graham? Mandy Moore was nominated twice, but it was the choreographer , not the actress. The Good Place was incredibly funny and creative, featuring A+ performances by Ted Danson and Kristen Bell, but the show got nada. Another shocker: no Claire Danes. And we got Millie Bobby Brown instead of Winona Ryder. I'm very much here for Ann Dowd's two nominations, however. And finally, in truly 2017 news, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dog were nominated for Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program.   Did your favorite snag a nomination? Who do you think was snubbed? Let us know below!

The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of June 27, 2016

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed — or at least be able to fake it — with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Monday at 10:30 p.m. on TBS Why: In the leadup to her show's debut, Samantha Bee did two things that captured my attention: she responded to a magazine spread featuring the male late-night hosts but excluding her (despite her high-profile show's announcement) like a boss , and she anticipated the vitriol she would attract from trolls by launching the Samantha Bee Rape Threatline . Everything she's done since the show's premiere in February has captured my heart. This lady is straight fire. Whether she's taking on the NRA, dismantling the antiquated arguments of ancient white lawmakers, or roasting racists, she is producing modern, enlightening, and funny TV. Some have argued that she should have taken over The Daily Show , but as her recent TCA Award nominations suggest, Bee has found the perfect home and format for her unique and powerful voice. Prepare to talk about: Bee's pitch-perfect delivery; the latest target of her righteous anger.   Gold Medal Families (Series Premiere) Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Lifetime Why: The countdown to Rio has begun. While Olympic officials desperately retest the water of Guanabara Bay and worriedly eye every mosquito that zips by, athletes around the world continue going to extraordinary lengths to get to Brazil. Lifetime's new docuseries showcases six Olympic hopefuls and their families, revealing the sacrifices required for an elite athlete to reach the podium. Among those profiled are gymnast Aly Raisman, who hopes to add to her collection of medals after winning gold in 2012; boxer Jajaira Gonzalez, who, when not training, cleans houses alongside her mother to help make ends meet; and diver Jordan Windle, a national champion who was adopted from a Cambodian orphanage and who co-wrote a semi-autobiographical children's book with one of his two dads. Prepare to talk about: Why any country would want to host the Olympics anyway (what a nightmare); how at just 22, Raisman is considered old.   The Great British Baking Show (Season Premiere) Friday at 9 p.m. on PBS Why: Take everything you love about U.S. food/cooking shows, remove the phoniness, add a dash of Himalayan pink salt, and you've got this perfectly prepared British vittle. The winning comedy duo Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins lead contestants through the challenges with real care and plenty of puns. The impossibly named Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry both look like they'd be annoying judges, but they're delightful — and fair. The contestants come from diverse backgrounds and support each other. There are no celebrity cameos, no producers prodding bakers to throw shade at each other, and no crazy cash prizes. Just exciting challenges, gorgeous production value, and a genuine love of baking. This summer, PBS is airing what the BBC showed last fall. But whether you know it as the former's Great British Baking Show or the latter's Great British Bake Off , it truly is the most satisfying cooking show on TV. Prepare to talk about: Whether we can trade Gordon Ramsay for Paul Hollywood; how terribly polite everyone is; the correct way to pronounce "scone."   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel. He hopes Mary Berry is taking the Brexit news well. Follow him on Twitter . div.post p { text-align: justify; }

Samantha Bee Mocks Sexist Hate Mail Sent to Women on Seattle City Council (Video)

On Mondays episode of Full Frontal on TBS, Samantha Bee shone a spotlight on the sexist e-mails and social media posts that have been aimed at female members of Seattles city council who rejected a land proposal that could have potentially brought more professional sports teams to the city. On May 2 , Seattle sports fans were crestfallen to hear that their city council had rejected a proposal from hedge fund manager Chris Hansen to build a new arena in the citys SoDo district. It was believed that if the arena plans were approved, it could be used to convince the NBA and NHL to consider moving sports teams back to Seattle. The proposal failed by a 5-4 vote, and the five members who voted against were all women. Since then, the five women have been hit with sexist insults like go back to the kitchen and I fing hate those bitches.   Read More... //www.thewrap.com/samantha-bee-mocks-sexist-hate-mail-sent-to-women-on-seattle-city-council-video/
