See Miss Piggy Spice Up the All-Male Late-Night Landscape

See Miss Piggy Spice Up the All-Male Late-Night Landscape

For Vanity Fair's October issue, David Kamp profiled the current stable of late-night hosts — 10 distinct television personalities who are very funny but, criminally for the state of 2015 pop culture, all men. The accompanying portrait, which shows each male host grinning in dark suit-and-tie, only highlighted late-night television’s glaring diversity problem ... and people noticed. (In fairness, so did Kamp, who called it “gobsmackingly insane ... that no TV network has had the common sense ... to hand over the reins of an existing late-night comedy program to a female person” in his article for V.F.)

Now, in a photo illustration that originated within the Muppets camp, one of Hollywood’s most prolific female pioneers crashes the late-night sausage fest, showing the boys what real pork sausage looks like.

Miss Piggy's own P.M. series, Up Late with Miss Piggy airs each Tuesday at 8 on ABC. (Well, they call it The Muppets but like everything else, it’s all about Miss Piggy.) We suggest network executives tune in to see that Miss Piggy can do everything her male peers can — but backwards and with hooves in heels.
