Canadian Lilly Singh To Get Her Own NBC Late Night Talk Show

NBC Taps YouTube Star Lilly Singh to Fill Carson Daly's Late-Night Slot

NBC has hired YouTube star Lilly Singh to take over the late-night spot now occupied by Carson Daly.

Her new gig will make her the only woman late-night talk show host on a broadcast network. Singh's new show, A Little Late With Lilly Singh, will debut in September, NBC announced Thursday.

Her half-hour program will include in-studio interviews and pre-taped comedy sketches, NBC said. In her interview with Fallon, Singh described the show as being an "inclusive" extension of her YouTube channel, with comedy segments and interviews. She said she's yet to decide if she'll incorporate the tradition desk format on her new show.

It stands to reason that Singh will have a better fighting chance to gain traction in the late-night space with the heft of NBC's marketing budget and its ability to use The Tonight Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers as additional promotional tools leading into her 1:35 a.m. ET time slot. "We can't wait to get started". Now that is a dream come true.

In addition, Singh took to Instagram to share a heartfelt post with Team Super fans far and wide. "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope m parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild". Other women now in late night television include Samantha Bee, who hosts Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS and Busy Philipps, whose Busy Tonight debuted on E! past year.

"I'm numb. I can't even process".

Singh will serve as executive producer on "A Little Late", while Polly Auritt, who heads Singh's Unicorn Island Productions, will serve as co-executive producer. "No matter how many "boxes" you check, I encourage you to do the same".

She has since branched out into music, writing and acting, with small roles in Ice Age: Collision Course and HBO's Fahrenheit 451.

In February, Singh made headlines when she publicly announced she is bisexual. The most popular videos on her IISuperwomanII channel are "What Clubbing is Actually Like" (30 million views) and "How Girls Get Ready".

"Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time", Singh wrote.
