Samantha Bee books President Barack Obama for October 31
You might want to pause your late-night Halloween scare-a-thon to watch ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ next week. The popular late-night host will feature an interview with President Barack Obama.
President Obama has served the past eight years as the President of the United States of America, and has appeared in quite a few late-night talk shows and special-events as he prepares to exit the White House. Samantha Bee’s interview of President Obama will air on TBS Monday, Oct. 31, at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
The show teased the episode in the announcement stating, “The conversation with America’s male president, who wore a flattering wool suit paired with sensible leather flats, follows Samantha’s October 24th interviews with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, Marshallese President Hilda Heine, Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, along with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.”
“Talking to Secretary Albright was especially inspiring,” said Bee. “I hope to interview other former Secretaries of State in the very near future.”
The interview comes as President Obama has been hitting the campaign trail in support of get-out-the-vote efforts on behalf of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The network added, “It covers a range of topics, from the 44th president’s legacy to the challenges the new Commander in Chief will face when she takes office in January. (Yes, “she.” Spoiler alert.)”
Since its debut in February, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has became one of late night’s most buzzed-about and critically acclaimed shows, frequently cited as essential viewing during this election season. Ranking among the Top 5 late night shows on broadcast or basic cable, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee reaches more than 3.3 million viewers per episode across TBS’s linear, mobile and digital platforms. In addition, online clips have generated 96 million views on the show’s YouTube channel. The series is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jo Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.
