WATCH: Ex-'Daily Show' Correspondent Samantha Bee Gets Late Night Talk Show, Is 'Kinda Done With Sausages'


We were all a little sad to see Samantha Bee leave the Daily Show in April, after more than a decade as a “correspondent” on the show. Luckily, Bee has a new gig—as a late-night talk show host, no less, a role that usually goes to dudes in suits. It’s a fact Bee calls attention to in the teaser for her new TBS show, in which she suggests not-at-all-subtly that her arrival means the sausage party is over.

Check the clip below, which features Bee in a gallery where one wall features photos of all the current talk show hosts. The main gag involves a plate of sausages, a description of each that seems awfully similar to the personalities of the hosts on the walls, and Bee’s declaration that she’s “kinda done with sausages.”

For the record, Bee has another show in the works, also for TBS. The series, The Detours, is created in collaboration with and featuring Bee’s husband Jason Jones, who also served as a longtime Daily Show correspondent.
