When Jon Stewart announced his departure from The Daily Show last year, we were all surprised that Samantha Bee, a correspondent on the show for nearly 12 years, was never approached to replace him. Now it seems that it was in her best interest, though, because her new show, Full Frontal, seems to be killing it, while The Daily Show struggles to keep up.



Bee’s show — the only late-night satire program currently hosted by a woman — premiered on TBS last February and has been going full force since. The network increased the show from 13 episodes to 39 through the end of the year, and it seems to be a force to reckon with — Full Frontal averaged 1.2 million viewers in the second quarter, while the Trevor Noah-hosted-The Daily Show averaged 1.3. And does Jessica Williams’ recent announcement of her departure from The Daily Show point to other problems at the show?


Either way, we’re glad we have Bee’s sarcasm to count on on Monday nights. Check out some of our favorite Full Frontal clips below:
