Comedian and ex-Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee dropped the first promo for her new TBS show, Full Frontal earlier this month. It’s funny, to be expected, and really sells Bee’s style of humor. However, her on-the-spot Twitter trolling of the new Vanity Fair cover is even better.
Titled “Why Late-Night Televsion Is Better Than Ever,” the October cover story discusses the current state of late-night comedy talk shows with Stephen Colbert, Conan O’Brien, Trevor Noah, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Larry Wilmore, Jimmy Fallon and Bill Maher. To promote it, the magazine’s Twitter account tweeted a heavily-edited photo of the 10 show hosts supposedly sitting, standing and drinking together:

There are old hands and untested novices alike, from broadcast and cable television, in the photo, but none of them are women. Sure, that’s because none of the major late-night programs currently on air or about to premiere feature female hosts, but with Bee’s upcoming Full Frontal, that’s about to change.
To remind everyone about said change, the comedian decided to critique the Vanity Fair cover …
… with her own hilariously terrible Photoshop.
