Last year, as a late night TV shake-up ended with yet another chorus line of white male hosts, Joan Rivers decried the lack of women in any of the coveted jobs as "beyond frustrating".Kathy Griffin was disappointed but unsurprised by the decision.To make it in the big leagues, a performer needs the unwavering support of power brokers including producers, agents and network executives, Griffin said, pointing to "Saturday Night Live" founder-guru Lorne Michaels' grooming of Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers for NBC late night jobs.Griffin has earned two Emmy Awards (for Bravo's "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List") and this year joined the small band of female winners of a Grammy Award for best comedy album ("Calm Down Gurrl").Most late night hosts are new and on the young side, such as 39-year-old Jimmy Fallon.
