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

NBC has hired YouTube star Lilly Singh to take over the late-night spot now occupied by Carson Daly. Singh is the only woman and only LGBTQ person with a late night show on a Big 4 network.

Singh was set to appear on Thursday night's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in order to make the announcement. Under the moniker "IISuperwomanII", she now has 14.5 million YouTube subscribers.

When asked what she envisioned the show to be like, Singh said, "Kind of like my YouTube channel, but just, you know, now I have more than three staff members". The show is slated to debut in September, taking over for Last Call With Carson Daly, which was axed last month after a 17-year run.

Singh stopped by The Tonight Show where she spoke a bit more about her new talk show, and celebrated the big news by toasting to the new gig with fellow late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers. "We can't wait to get started". "Now that is a dream come true", Singh wrote in a statement about the announcement.

Singh is perhaps best known, though, for making lighthearted fun of her Punjabi immigrant parents, played by Singh herself. Joan Rivers did host the short-lived The Late Show for FOX in 1986, but at the time FOX was a new network and was not carried by all affiliates, thus not considered "broadcast".

"I'm numb. I can't even process".

NBC has found its replacement for Carson Daly. In 2017, Forbes listed her as one of the top 10 highest earning Youtubers, earning a reported $10.5 million.

Daly, who has hosted "Last Call With Carson Daly" for nearly two decades, announced in February that he was stepping down to spend more time with his family and focus on his other NBC shows, hosting "The Voice" and co-hosting "Today".

In February, Singh came out as bisexual in an emotional message on Twitter.

The multi-hyphenate star first rose to fame as a comedian and vlogger on YouTube, where she posted videos as a way to fight through her depression.

"✅ Female ✅ Coloured ✅ Bisexual ••• Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time".
