TBS has thrown in the towel again in its fight to find a niche in the late-night talk show wars. According to a report by diverseCable network has been cancelled Full frontal with Samantha B After seven seasons. Despite 22 Emmy Award nominations during her tour, and one win over For Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special in 2017, Warner Bros. Discovery – the parent company of TBS – is cutting the show and now looking for the next big, late-night thing. The series’ final episode aired on June 23, and it’s a reminder that the network can’t get a late-night show to last that long.

The cancellation marks an abrupt end for the 52-year-old Toronto boy who has risen to prominence at Comedy Central daily offer. She joined the show, then hosted by Jon Stewart, in 2003 and became the service’s longest-running reporter, leaving in 2015 after 12 seasons. She eventually signed with TBS to create content, including comedy series turnstarring Jason Jones (All about Steveand Natalie ZiajustificationIt lasted for four seasons. Showing her signature to Grid, though, was full frontalwhich aired its first episode in February 2016 and introduces a new episode every week.

Donald Trump was elected president later that year, and the show’s political orientation certainly benefited from the reality star’s tenure in office. Her constant mockery of the President was similar to most other late-night talk shows, but Samantha B was the only woman in a sea of ​​male hosts, keeping her away from the set. In 2018, she herself became a news story Call Then, first daughter, Ivanka Trump, was “feckless c**t” on the air while criticizing her father’s immigration policy. I later apologized.

TBS called the cancellation a business decision, possibly an indication that broadcasters and broadcasters had spawned too many similar shows, disabling audiences and failing to justify the exorbitant salaries of the hosts involved. NBC’s Jay Leno and CBS’s David Letterman used to limit late-night talk show choices, but with their retirements and a slew of new shows, there’s probably been a lot of talk shows taking political angles for a shrinking audience. For its part, TBS has had problems running night shows. In 2009, their first attempt was on a late night talk show, Jorge Lopez Lopez tonightIt only lasted two seasons before it was cancelled. Conan O’Brien did well on TBS with his show, but it always struggled in the ratings and was canceled last June. Samantha Bee ran for seven seasons, and she may now be seeking to revive the show elsewhere.

Stephen L Miller in viewer It raises another possibility that may have undermined Samantha Bee’s followers and doomed her to fail in the ratings. In 2017, news broke that B and her husband were part of a group trying to stop a public school in New York City expansion School division boundaries. This would have allowed children from poor neighborhoods to access the school, which previously only allowed children from the more exclusive and wealthier neighborhoods that surrounded them. Although Bee and her husband’s motives were never made clear, and the allegations against them may have been exaggerated, Bee never attempted to clarify the situation or apologise. The controversy damaged her standing, as many called her hypocritical, and possibly damaged her public reputation.
