‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’ Renewed by TBS for 2 More Seasons

TBS has renewed “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” for two more seasons, the Turner Broadcasting comedy cable channel said on Thursday.

“We were fortunate to start our show in an election year, and I’m so grateful TBS has picked us up for two more seasons which will see us through the 2018 midterms and bring us into the 2020 election season,” said Bee. “It’s promising to be a real s–tshow and I am counting on our viewers to coax me out of my panic bunker and get us through it.”

“No one does political comedy like ‘Full Frontal’; a two-season pickup is an obvious decision,” added Thom Hinkle, executive vice president of original programming. “Sam and her team have been relentlessly incisive in their satire, and the awards recognition and their growing viewership reflect that. Along with new episodes, expect more specials and a lot more blazers.”

11 TV Shows You Might Not Know Alan Thicke Worked On (Photos)

Alan Thicke will be best known as one of the all-time great sitcom dads, but his career has also crossed paths with several other famous TV shows, and not always in the ways you might expect.

Before “Growing Pains,” Thicke got bit roles in three episodes of “The Love Boat,” including an episode where he plays a man who tries to get his ex-wife married to someone else.

Thicke also had a long career as a variety show host, starting with a stint on daytime Canadian TV with “The Alan Thicke Show.” He then tried to challenge Johnny Carson with a late night show called “Thicke of the Night,” but it bombed. A year later, “Growing Pains” hit the airwaves.

Behind the camera, Thicke also worked as a TV theme composer. With his then-wife Gloria Loring, he  wrote the themes for the hit sitcoms “Diff’rent Strokes” and “The Facts Of Life.”

He also wrote the original theme and incidental music for “Wheel of Fortune,” which was used during Chuck Woolery’s run as the show’s host and the first two years of Pat Sajak’s tenure.

After “Pains,” Thicke also got a role as the murder victim in a 1993 episode of “Murder, She Wrote.” He played Harrison Kane, a womanizing publisher who was killed in his bathtub.

On “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Thicke returned to his talk show host roots for a recurring role as talk host Rich Ginger.

Thicke also got a lot of mileage out of playing himself. The most famous of his self-deprecating cameos came in the third season of “How I Met Your Mother,” where he is shown appearing in a music video with Robin.

A more absurd guest appearance came on the Adult Swim show “Tim & Eric,” where Thicke introduced himself as “Dr. Alan Thicke” and endorsed an apple that would help you with your sleep…and your bowel movements.
