Why won't the public accept a late night female host? The days of women comics making lame cracks about their periods are over -- Margaret Cho, Laura Kightlinger, Kathy Griffin, Carol Leifer, and I could go on.

All of them could riff on anything topical and interview guests, and while they may not all make everyone laugh, you've got to agree any of them could hold their own behind a desk.Sure, women like Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O'Donnell had their own shows, but they've been relegated to the mid morning ghetto.

Late night, even in this land of 500 channels, is still a place where kings of comedy aspire to go, and it's still the place that makes news (e.g.

the Palin/Letterman brouhaha, the Leno interview of Obama, etc.).This irks me (can you tell?), but I have faith that when this glut of male late night hosts is thinned out through the Darwinian ratings process, there may be someone with a brain who thinks that maybe ignoring half the talent pool is a problem.

The bottom line is that we will blow no one to get a late night lady comedian.

Like having a female president, our day is coming, and it is inevitable.

Carson Daly, start calling the cruise ships.
