LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18 (UPI) — TBS says it has renewed its weekly, current events-analysis program “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” for a second season, which is to start in 2017.

The satirical series currently airs Mondays at 10:30 p.m., but will move to the new time slot of Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m., as of Jan. 11.

“I am only sorry that this renewal leaves me unavailable for a cabinet position in the new administration,” Bee said in a statement. “I will, however, be available to host the White House Correspondents Dinner, seeing as I already bought the dress.”

“Of course we’re picking up the show,” added Thom Hinkle, senior vice president of original programming for TBS. “In less than a year, Sam has become one of the most talked-about personalities in all of television and ‘Full Frontal”s audience continues to grow. We’re so lucky to have Sam and her Emmy-nominated team, led by the brilliant Jo Miller, as part of the TBS family. Xoxoxoxo.”
