YouTuber Lilly Singh lands a late night TV talk show

Canadian YouTuber popularly known as Superwoman is now a late-night talk show host.

Lilly Singh, who also goes by the moniker Superwoman on YouTube, is taking over Carson Daly’s slot on NBC to become one of the few women to host a late-night talk show on a broadcast network.

According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, ‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ will debut in September. The half-hour slot will feature interviews and pre-taped comedy sketches and segments like on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’.

“An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late-night show? Now that is a dream come true,” Singh said Thursday in a release, via The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild.”

Singh started out on YouTube in 2010 under the name “||Superwoman||” and has gone from strength to strength, gaining 14 million subscribers and adding music, acting, writing, live performance and now TV talk show hosting to her bow.

On Twitter, where she has 5.76 million followers, Singh confirmed the news by saying that she was very happy to have landed the new TV show.

Daly is ending ‘Last Call With Carson Daly’ after 17 years on the broadcaster, reportedly to spend more time with his family. Chelsea Lately, who hosted ‘Chelsea Lately on E!’ for seven seasons and Chelsea on Netflix for two, was reportedly considered for the gig, but it wasn’t to be.

Singh joins the short list of female talk show hosts, including Samantha Bee, host of ‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’ on TBS in a format that does not include guest interviews, and ‘Busy Tonight on E!’ with Busy Phillips.
