I think they're nearly the same difficulty since they're all using more/less the same CPU and operating system. Typically the atv jailbreaks come out shortly after the iphone ones... likely because there's more people with iPhones... and once the iPhone with the same CPU is jailbroken usually the same exploit is used for the atv.
When the new jailbreaks come out varies... depends on Apple's speed at addressing exploits, whether or not new CPU or other hardware is present... etc. If the new "atv3" is released with significantly new hardware it could take a while before it's jailbroken.
