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

It'll make her the only woman to now host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks.

Here's what you should know about the woman who is about to become the only female 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.

Actress, producer, writer and creator Singh is a leading force in the digital world amassing a global audience of more than 14 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, where she writes, produces and stars in comedic and inspirational videos.

Singh rose to fame through her YouTube comedy channel, "IISuperwomanII", which has more than 14 million followers, producing sketches frequently referencing her immigrant background and being open about her mental health. She said she's yet to decide if she'll incorporate the tradition desk format on her new 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.

Singh took to Twitter to gush about her new job calling it a "dream come true". Seth Meyers later surprised Singh on stage with champagne to celebrate her new gig. "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild".

The red notices were issued on 1 March at the request of the Istanbul Prosecutor's Office, the Turkish media specified. He gave no names or other details, however, as the suspects' identities have not yet been made public.

Fallon let Singh test out his desk to see what it feels like to host, and she started interviewing him about being having late-night show.

"I'm numb. I can't even process". In the 2017 Forbes Rich List, she ranked tenth, with annual earnings of $10.5 million.

The show will air in the 1:35am ET/PT time slot previously filled by Last Call with Carson Daly, which was cancelled last month after a 17-year run.

The comedian, who hails from Scarborough, Ont., is taking over from Carson Daly on NBC.

In February, Singh made headlines when she publicly announced she is bisexual. There's so many people to thank and I will do so over the next few (or hundred) posts.

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