Sorry, Jimmy, Jimmy, Stephen, James and the rest of the late-night gang.
There’s a new girl in town who’s crashing the boys’ club. And she’s not afraid to make jokes about your private parts.
Former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee is getting a late-night talk show on TBS, and she hits the ground running with this amusingly crass promo – first revealed Wednesday at Turner’s Upfronts presentation in New York.
The Canadian comic is seen in an art gallery, admiring portraits of the current late-night kings. And they are all male rulers – Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, and so on. Except Bee isn’t so much admiring them as scoffing at them.
Then a caterer comes by with hors d’oeuvres, and, well, it’s quite the metaphor for a TV landscape filled with dudes.
Bee caps the promo off with a well-timed, bleeped-out F-bomb. So, while her show doesn’t even have a title or a premiere date yet, it’s clear this woman means business.
