Lilly Singh Is the First Woman to Take on a Late Night Talk Show for NBC!


Lilly Singh speaking

Late night television is getting a new voice, and it’s a pretty great one at that. YouTube sensation Lilly Singh will host A Little Late With Lilly Singh this coming fall, marking her as the first woman to take on a slot on NBC’s prominent late night lineup! Her show will be replacing Last Call With Carson Daly, making NBC’s lineup Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and then Singh.

Not only is Lilly Singh the first woman to have her own late night talk show on NBC, but she is the first LBGTQ+ woman to do so!

Twitter was filled with praise last night for Singh and her new show, with fans and friends alike flooding to the platform to share their excitement for Lilly Singh and the show!

It couldn’t go to a more deserving person.

Singh marks a new era of late night television. For so long, we’ve watched amazing women get pushed to other networks because the big networks continued to give their slots to men, but now, with A Little Late With Lilly Singh, we’re seeing a shift, and we can’t wait to watch her shine!
