TBS has seen enough of Samantha Bee to know it wants a good deal more.

The channel has picked up an additional 26 episodes of “Full Frontal,” her weekly political-satire show. That brings the episode total to 39 and will carry it through the remainder of 2016.

“Stay crazy, America,” Bee says in a statement. “I’ll be here all year!”

“Full Frontal” is averaging a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 (Live +7 ratings) and 2.1 million viewers thus far. The March 28 episode drew a same-day rating of 0.3 and just under 500,000 viewers.

In an odd quirk, replays of the show on Saturdays often draw better numbers than the first-run airings. For example, the March 21 “Full Frontal” earned a 0.3 and 650,000 same-day viewers following a “Family Guy” rerun. On March 26, with a better-rated “Big Bang Theory” rerun as its lead-in, a “Full Frontal” replay scored a 0.4 and 985,000 viewers.
