"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" Gets Voters to the Polls

Two New Episodes Next Week on Monday, November 5 and Wednesday, November 7

"This Is Not a Game: The Game" App Scores 310,000 Downloads; 126,000 Players Signed Up for Voter Registration Info and Voting Reminders

Full Frontal's Facebook Page Will Display Election Results Via Sheet Cake Live on Election Night

November 1, 2018 - Ahead of the midterm elections on Tuesday, November 6, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will air a bonus episode on Monday, November 5 covering local political races to make one final plea to viewers to please, for the love of God, vote. On Wednesday, November 7, the show will unpack the results of the elections and air footage taken at the polls. Both episodes will air on TBS at 10:30pm ET/PT.

The show is also upping the ante on its trivia game app "This Is Not a Game: The Game" by offering the largest cash prizes yet! $115,000 is up for grabs over the next six days! To win that money, all players need to do is answer fun trivia questions that will educate them about the importance of civic engagement. Since the app launched one month ago, players have won over $80,000, over 310,000 people have downloaded the game, and more than 126,000 players have signed up for voter registration info and voting reminders through the app. "PoodleMom" gives the app five stars in the App Store, writing "I've actually won about $3 but who cares!?" and "Thanks Samantha for making us more aware and smarter." On Election Day, the app will increase the number of live games to help entertain voters waiting in long lines at the polls.

On election night, as the first round of polls close, Full Frontal will livestream on Facebook. For anyone feeling overwhelmed by broadcast news coverage, the show will offer a soothing, alternative way to keep track of the House, Senate, gubernatorial, and mayoral races. As results for each state come in, a piece of cake in the shape of the state will be cut out of a large United States sheet cake. As more of the cake is cut, a message underneath the cake will slowly be revealed.

Full Frontal host Samantha Bee remarked, "As a new American citizen, I voted for the first time in 2016 and based on the outcome, I can only guess I must have done it wrong. But this time around I'm much more prepared because I've been playing my own game every day for a month."

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Tony Hernandez, Miles Kahn, Alison Camillo, and Pat King.
