Ebert and Roeper Retire and are Replaced by Two Guys

Not that this should surprise anyone, but in light of the research of the lack of female films critics, the most famous TV critics Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper (who never interested me as much as Gene Siskel) have been replaced by Ben Lyons (son of critics Jeffrey Lyons) and Ben Mankiewicz (grandson of screenwriter Herman and great-nephew of director, Joseph L.)

Couldn't they have thought of teaming one of them up with a woman? Why was that not an option?
