9. Samantha Bee (Full Frontal)
Longtime viewers of The Daily Show will remember Samantha Bee fondly as the longest-serving correspondent on the Comedy Central series. She would serve on the show for 12 years before leaving in 2015 when she was ready to produce her own talk show. This led to the launch of her TBS series Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, putting Bee in the late night TV spotlight to deliver her biting humor her way.
If you thought Samantha was funny on The Daily Show, you’ll no doubt appreciate Full Frontal. Only in its second season, however, the new series is still pretty much an infant. While it’s been good stuff so far, Bee is going to have to put in some more time before making her way further up the list. We know she has longevity as a correspondent, but is she going to go the distance as the host of her own series?
But make no mistake, Bee is always hilarious, and regularly has video clips from her show going viral. Time will tell, as mentioned above, if this show will end up surpassing two seasons. But because of its critical acclaim and positive reviews from viewers, there’s a strong chance that it will.
