YouTube star Lilly Singh will host a new NBC late-night show

Starting in September, "A Little Late With Lilly Singh" will be in the 1:35 a.m. nightly time slot.

Last month, Daly said he's decided it's time to bring his Last Call show to an end as he focuses on new and continuing projects, as host and producer of NBC's The Voice. Lilly's show will include comedy segments and she will also be interviewing guests.

"Singh's popular YouTube channel, where she's known as "||Superwoman||", has more than 14.5 million subscribers; she's also an actress, with recent roles on Life in Pieces and in HBO's Fahrenheit 451. "I get to make it inclusive. and create something I really believe in", Singh previewed, hinting that the series will be similar to her popular YouTube channel. "A huge shout-out to all the women who have been before me and who are now in this space, because I couldn't have done it without them paving the path".

With the hire, Lilly will become the only woman to host a late night talk show on the Big 4 networks: ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox.

At the moment, there are no female late-night hosts on broadcast networks. AHHHHHHH! And not only did I get to announce this dream come true on @fallontonight but @sethmeyers came out and surprised me as well!

"Lilly is truly a star and we're thrilled to welcome her to our NBC family", Doug Vaughan, NBC Entertainment's executive vice president of special programs and late night, said in a statement.

He added, "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".

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, an announcement many hailed as a potentially massive step forward for immigrant communities' acceptance of same-sex relationships, thanks to her widespread popularity. But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers ... "This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you".

Singh also is the author of the bestselling How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life.
