Daily Show's Samantha Bee is 'Female as F—k' in First TBS Talk Show Promo

Samantha Bee has just about had it with sausages!

In a world dominated by the mild (The Tonight Show‘s Jimmy Fallon), extra mild (Last Call‘s Carson Daly) and “no idea what that one is” (The Late Late Show‘s James Corden), the former Daily Show correspondent is ready to take the male-dominated, post-primetime circuit by storm with her own TBS talker.

The first teaser, as revealed at Turner’s annual Upfronts presentation Wednesday, doesn’t reveal a title, an exact format or premiere date, but it aptly addresses the gender-specific elephant in the room.

Other than her upcoming hosting duties, Bee is also executive-producing The Detour, the cabler’s family-vacation sitcom starring husband — and former Daily Show personality — Jason Jones and Justified‘s Natalie Zea. Both programs are expected to debut later this year.

So press PLAY on the video above, then hit the comments with your thoughts on a Bee-fronted chat show.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Sounds like they didn’t try to hard to come up with a cool name for the show, but liberals are lazy and this is what you get.

    Too bad her show is on a network that will Bleep the Sh*t out of her. Looking forward to it.

      They let Conan get away with words he’d never get on network TV. I don’t know why this would be any different.

  3. TV Gord says:

    Lovely. :-D As she is a fellow Canucklehead, I hope she makes sure there’s a deal for her new show to be available in Canada!

    Apparently she lives in an alternate reality where Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler (among a few other women) never had late-night shows…

    • dman6015 says:

      Joan Rivers is dead and Chelsea Handler no longer has a show. She isn’t claiming that she’s groundbreaking, just that all the other late night hosts, RIGHT NOW, are male.

    • maggie says:

      Since she’s referring to the current TV lineup, Samantha is correct in that late night TV is a sausage-fest.

    • Dumba$$. My god, some people are so utterly clueless. You could count on your fingers how many women have hosted late-night shows but would have to borrow the fingers of your entire extended family to count the men. I think that you might want to make sure that it isn’t YOU who is living in the alternate reality.

      • Lucifer says:

        Talk about calling the kettle black, I never said there were more women who have had late night TV shows (most of them cancelled pretty quickly, btw), just that she’s acting as if she’s the first and she’s selling it solely based on her gender. But it’s okay, your unnecessary rage likely blinded you from actually understanding my comment.

        • Actually, it was your inability to write clearly that was the problem. And she wasn’t acting as if she were the first but, if you can’t write clearly, it’s doubtful that you’d understand something so basic.

          • khowse says:

            Wow…really? it must be you because I understood what he was saying perfectly. Perhaps your rage is affecting your reading comprehension. Anyway…whatever it is, I’m sure it’s not your fault but some that of some “male oppressor” who didn’t want you to learn right? But, hey…it’s OK…we understand that the male-bashing that goes on today, in actuality, only serves to mask someone’s own lack of ambition or hard-work. Not to mention, fails to recognize/appreciate people like Oprah who, rather than use excuses & despite the “ocean of oppression” worked her ass-off (like most have to do) to become the huge success she is today. But, I digress…good luck to Samantha Bee, who, if she can keep her focus on herself in making her show great (instead of this kind of sexist vitriol) will earn the success/respect others, despite their gender, do!

          • That was, perhaps, the most ridiculous rant I’ve ever read. Truly and utterly ridiculous.

    I can’t wait! I love Samantha Bee so much!!!

    Wonderful news. The trailer was funny. She was one of my favorites on The Daily Show.
