Samantha Bee breaks up late-night TV sausage party in first TBS promo teaser

Check out the first brand-new teaser clip promoting Samantha Bee’s upcoming entrance into the late-night TV game as the only female host in a world full of Jimmys.

TBS debuted this clip today as part of the Turner Networks’ annual Upfronts presentation to advertisers.

In it, Bee surmises a wall of portraits of all of the men hosting late-night TV shows; among them: Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Seth Meyers, Carson Daly, John Oliver, David Letterman, Larry Wilmore, Andy Cohen, Stephen Colbert and Bee’s former boss, Jon Stewart.

“You know, when I take a look at each piece individually, I like it. But when I take a step back, I feel like something’s missing,” Bee narrates in voiceover.

A waiter (played by comedian Joe Matarese) in the gallery setting offers her a plate of sausages.

“Actually, you know what? I think I’m kinda done with sausages,” Bee counters. “And I am female as f*ck!”

Bee’s late-night entry is expected to debut late in 2015. TBS last tried complementing Conan O’Brien’s Conan with The Pete Holmes Show in 2013-2014.

Roll the clip!
