Samantha Bee is not overlooking the magnitude of the fact that she will soon be late-night’s only female host. In a new promo, the former Daily Show correspondent muses about something missing from a wall of photos of male hosts (with plenty of digs at them). And if anyone misses the not-so-subtle message, she spells out plainly at the end: “I’m female as fuck.” Fuck yeah!
Check out the teaser here, and apologies for the autoplay (which TBS’s video is not letting me code my way out of):
After 12 years on The Daily Show, Bee left the series May 1st. Her husband Jason Jones departed the series earlier to work on a new scripted comedy for TBS, The Detour, where both he and Bee are executive producers (Jones will also star).
Bee’s new late-night series will be paired with Conan O’Brien‘s show, which has proved a hard slot for TBS to fill successfully (George Lopez and Pete Holmes are two of those who have had their series cancelled). Bee’s show will debut some time later this year, and we’ll update you as more about the series format and the first guests are revealed.
