Here's Why "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" Receiving Its Highest Ratings Is Important

MAKER Samantha Bee's most recent episode of "Full Frontal" has received its highest ratings for "Live + Same Day delivery among adults 18-34 (334K) and adults 18-49 (766K)," according to Deadline.

While the ratings themselves are reason enough to celebrate, they are also groundbreaking because, along with fellow MAKER Chelsea Handler, Bee is one of only two women in late-night television.

With such high viewership, Bee proves one very important thing: "a woman can host a late-night talk show and succeed very nicely, contrary to years of conventional wisdom."

To solidify this proof, in its first year of being on-air, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" has increased 71 percent among 18-34 year olds and 92 percent among 18-49 year olds.
