YouTube star Lilly Singh takes Carson Daly's late night spot

Singh's new show is titled A Little Late With Lilly Singh and the hire will make Singh the only woman to now host a late-night talk show on a Big 4 broadcast network.

Singh, who is also known as Superwoman, first announced the big news on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

NBC says her half-hour program will include in-studio interviews and pre-taped comedy sketches.

It'll make her the only woman to now host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks. Lilly will fit right in with the slate of late-night hosts, as she's no stranger to making millions of people laugh and already counts celebrities among her friends (hi, Selena Gomez). "She is a multi-talented performer who will surely have a great rapport with not only all her guests, but also with our devoted late-night audience".

"An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late-night show?"


The retitled "A Little Late with Lilly Singh" will launch in September, and as noted by NBC, will make her the only female to now host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks. "Now that is a dream come true", Singh said in a news release sent to several outlets. "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild". She said the show would be "kind of like my YouTube channel, but now I have more than three staff members".

Lilly Singh got her start as a Canadian YouTube personality, and by 2017 she ranked tenth on the Forbes list of the world's highest paid YouTube stars, earning about $10.5 million.

In February, Singh came out as bisexual in an emotional message on Twitter.

Lilly Singh shared her joy on Instagram as she wrote, "I can't even believe I am writing this caption. No matter how many "boxes" you check, I encourage you to do the same". But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers.

As an actress, she appeared in the Emmy-nominated HBO film Fahrenheit 451, opposite Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan. She also appeared in the films Bad Moms and Ice Age: Collision Course.  She is also a New York Times bestselling author with her book "How To Be A Bawse: A Guide To Conquering Life".
