For Samantha Bee, 2016 has been a great year.

Her weekly show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee was an instant hit when it launched on TBS in February. Now garnering legions of fans, Bee is being heralded as the freshest new voice in late night television.

And to round out a banner year, Ad Week magazine has named Bee Creator of the Year.

In an interview with Ad Week, Bee acknowledged the uncertainty that came with starting her own show from scratch. “We didn’t know what to expect, but we’ve been so fortunate to have so much creative freedom and so much material to work with.”  

Samantha Bee continues her stellar run into 2017 in a new time slot beginning January 11 when Full Frontal moves from Monday to Wednesday nights at 10:30 pm. Hip, hip, hooray!
