Today Vanity Fair released the above image, along with an accompanying feature in which they "talked to all the titans of late-night television." Titans, in Greek mythology, were a race of gods. Today, a titan is merely god-like, but they're still the most influential and important, albeit mortal humans, in their fields.
There are zero women in that photo and in the Vanity Fair feature, which is titled: "Why Late-Night Television Is Better than Ever." We'd also point out that if this photo had been taken earlier this year, before Trevor Noah was announced as the guy taking over Jon Stewart's seat at The Daily Show, and without Larry Wilmore, this would be a photo of all white males.

This isn't to say that Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher, James Corden, Larry Wilmore, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah aren't funny, smart, and deserving of their programs, but there are plenty of women that are also deserving of these programs.
Honestly, there's just no way to not be disappointed by this. How out of touch do you have to be?: http://t.co/nPIUBRV0WT

Of course, it's not Vanity Fair's fault that there is absolutely no diversity in the late night world, but perhaps they could have pointed out their absence, instead of celebrating uniformity. Oh wait, Colbert wore plaid, so nevermind.
