Samantha Bee Unveils New Open for ‘Full Frontal’ and Other Changes
Samantha Bee has been tilting at giants for almost three years. Now she’s become one herself.

Starting tonight, in a new opening sequence for her satirical program “Full Frontal” on TBS, Bee will be depicted as a curious titan striding across America, shaking hands with the Statue of Liberty, opening the dome of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., to peer inside and lifting up part of a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. In the past, the show’s opening sequence has depicted a tiny Bee entering an arena ready to take on gargantuan figures.The change, one of a handful to crop up on the program, is aimed at letting viewers know that Bee is no longer an upstart in the field of late-night comedy, but rather a full-fledged voice on the scene.

Netflix Cancels Joel McHale, Michelle Wolf Talk Shows

  • The Wrap
Netflix has decided to cancel a pair of talk shows on Friday: “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” and “The Break With Michelle Wolf.”

Both shows had finished their respective runs, with “The Break” wrapping up its 13 episode order on July 31. The streamer will not order any more episodes.

The two talk shows were on the air for less than a year. “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” debuted in February, while “The Break With Michelle Wolf” premiered over Memorial Day weekend.

Wolf’s debut for “The Break” came right after her hosting gig during April’s White House Correspondents Dinner that got some major pushback because of its caustic tone. “The Joel McHale Show” and “The Break” were ordered for 10 and 13 episodes, respectively. The two shows followed Netflix’s Chelsea Handler-hosted talk show,

Michelle Wolf, Joel McHale Talk Shows Canceled by Netflix

  • Variety
Netflix has canceled two of its talk shows, “The Break With Michele Wolf” and “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale.”

The move comes just months into both shows’ runs — with McHale’s haveing premiered in February and Wolf’s in May. It also comes as Wolf has seen her star rise, thanks in part to an appearance hosting this year’s White House Correspondents dinner, where her speaking engagement drew rave reviews from viewers but prompted the Whca to apologize for some of its content.

Netflix declines to release viewership information for its original shows, so it it unknown what size audiences Wolf and McHale drew. It remains to be seen whether the cancellations represent a retreat from the variety-talk format that the streaming service has been making an aggressive push into. A new season of David Letterman’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” is in the works,

Samantha Bee Plans Tweaks to ‘Full Frontal’
Samantha Bee has a few changes in store for “Full Frontal.”

During Wednesday night’s broadcast of the TBS satire program, Bee and a motley crew of characters will bid farewell- during a sketch – to the show’s set. The move could be the first of several refinements viewers will see when the program returns on September 12 after a late-summer hiatus. At TBS, the transformation is being billed as “Full Frontal 2.0,” and is being made to accommodate coverage of the 2018 midterm elections. TBS declined to elaborate.

The redesign would come about two and a half years and 88 episodes into the show’s tenure, and suggests Bee and her producers are ready to shake things up as the nation shifts its focus to an event that could serve as a game-changer for national politics. Indeed, “Full Frontal” producers are also readying the launch of a mobile app called “This Is Not A Game: The Game,

Jerry Seinfeld Sets Limited Engagement At Hollywood Pantages Theatre

Jerry Seinfeld Sets Limited Engagement At Hollywood Pantages Theatre
Jerry Seinfeld is headed to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles to perform his signature brand of stand-up — but if you’re interested in attending, you better get your tickets with a swiftness because he’ll only be there for three performances Nov. 2-3.

The actor-comedian is best known for his role in the titular award-winning NBC show Seinfeld which ran for nine seasons and introduced us to a show about nothing and had the world saying “yada, yada, yada” all the live long day. But before that, he had an uncanny ability for observational humor in his stand-up which led to his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1981.

Seinfeld continues to do stand-up around the world and has multiple projects including the Emmy nominated web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and his Netflix special Jerry Before Seinfeld. Seinfeld has also starred in, written

Chris Rock Tweets Article About Comedy’s ‘Insufferable Wokeness,’ Is Accused of Insufficient Wokeness
Chris Rock has been criticized by some of his followers for tweeting an essay from the online conservative magazine The Federalist on Wednesday.

The essay, titled “Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians In Cars’ Is A Welcome Respite From The Insufferable Wokeness Of Comedy,” argues that Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix talk show transcends the work of other popular comedians by avoiding the “Daily Show” style of politically-tinged commentary.

“Tragedy-laced pleas for social action may be having their moment in comedy, but Jerry Seinfeld and “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” are, mercifully, not part of it,” the piece reads.

Rock shared the post on his Twitter account on Wednesday, adding “Thank God for Jerry.”

Sony Exploring Sale Of Crackle Stake To Make It “More Competitive”

Sony is looking to take on a partner in Crackle, its ad-supported streaming service, in order to make it more competitive in a saturated marketplace.

Mike Hopkins, the former head of Hulu who joined Sony Pictures last fall as chairman of its TV division, disclosed the strategy to employees in an internal email. (See the full email below.) Hopkins said working with a partner could help “drive scale.” A complete sale of the property is not the initial plan, but insiders indicate a willingness to entertain an offer for the entire business.

The notion of taking on a partner has been contemplated at earlier moments during the decade-plus that Sony has owned the service, which was known as Grouper when the company bought it in 2006. In 2014, when a trove of internal documents were revealed as part of the infamous hack into the studio’s computer systems, an email exchange indicated

Ellen Degeneres Opens up About Never Having Kids With Wife Portia De Rossi

For years, Ellen DeGeneres has joked about why she and wife Portia de Rossi have never had children. ("It's too risky — what if I don’t like the kid?" she once quipped on Today.) But she got surprisingly serious when she discussed the topic with Jerry Seinfeld on a new episode of his Netflix series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. "When I was younger, I really wanted to have a baby — I thought I would adopt. I never thought I would have a baby, but I thought I would want kids," Ellen, 60, told Jerry (a father-of three with wife Jessica Seinfeld). "[Portia] doesn't want kids."

Jerry Seinfeld Sees ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ as His ‘Gigantic Art Project’
Jerry Seinfeld likes to think of his hit Netflix series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” as his personal “art project.” As creator, executive producer and star, Seinfeld has full jurisdiction over the show, which for him often means choosing to have no jurisdiction at all, letting the each episode unfold naturally with each guest, local cafe and tricked out ride.

Seinfeld continued his laissez faire approach into Season 10, which premieres on Netflix July 6 and features some of the comedian’s favorite guests so far, including Zach Galifianakis, Dave Chappelle and the late Jerry Lewis.

What are you most excited for viewers to see in Season 10?

The fun thing about doing this show, is every guest that walks on the show completely changes the entire show. There is no similarity between the time I spent with Zach Galifianakis and the time I spent with Jerry Lewis or Alec Baldwin. The guest,
