Samantha Bee is bringing Full Frontal to Puerto Rico for hourlong special
Samantha Bee has found her next travel destination: Puerto Rico. The host of Full Frontal will bring her TBS late-night show to the U.S. territory for an episode that will air on Wednesday, March 28 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
The news was first announced during Full Frontal‘s Amazing Race spoof that aired Wednesday night. Bee’s correspondents raced around the world to apologize to all the people insulted or demeaned by President Donald Trump. This mission took Allana Harkin to Puerto Rico, where she heard this from a citizen: “[Trump] hasn’t done anything for us besides throwing paper towels.”
Puerto Rico is still recovering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria, while Trump has been criticized for his lack of initiative and aid. “I really wish I could’ve done more,” Harkin said.
“You definitely could have — and you will for our Puerto Rico special, March 28,” Bee said in voiceover.
Full Frontal regularly sends its correspondents to different parts of the world. Last year, she and her team were onsite in Kurdistan, Iraq, for an uncommonly positive episode about Trump.
Conan O’Brien, whose late show also airs on TBS, is airing his travel special on Saturday. The Conan host took a trip to Haiti, where he gave citizens an opportunity to roast Trump for reportedly calling the country a “sh—hole.”
