NBC taps YouTube star Lilly Singh to replace Carson Daly, becoming broadcast TV's only female late-night host
Last Call with Carson Daly will give way to A Little Late with Lilly Singh in September, NBC announced this evening. NBC says A Little Late will feature Singh conducting interviews in-studio, participating in comedy sketches and other "signature elements." The 30-year-old Singh was formally introduced on Thursday's Tonight Show. “An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show? Now that is a dream come true,” Singh said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild.” ALSO: Watch Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers welcome Singh to NBC late-night with a champagne toast.
