Full Frontal With Samantha Bee

TBS | 10:30 pm
Host Samantha Bee may approach political events from a left-of-center perspective, but she assures fans her holiday special isn’t another salvo in the largely imaginary "war on Christmas" decried in some quarters.

Alas, it proves nearly impossible to get everyone else on board with that last-minute notion. Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy and Annie Murphy also star. […]
