In a special announcement on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, Canadian YouTube comedian Lilly Singh revealed that she will be hosting her own show on NBC called A Little Late With Lilly Singh! It’s about time network TV made room for a new late-night host, no? “Ya girl is getting her own NBC late-night show!” Singh announced, officially making her the only female late-night host on a major television network. Singh will add some much-needed diversity to the late-night television community as an Indian woman, as well as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. When asked what the new show will be like, Singh jokingly told Fallon it will be “kind of like my YouTube channel, but just, you know, now I have more than three staff members.” Singh – also known by her loyal YouTube community as Superwoman – joined the video platform in 2010 and has since amassed over 14 million subscribers – a following most first-time late-night hosts could only dream of having. “I’m so excited because I truly get to create a show from scratch,” Singh told Fallon. “I get to make it inclusive, I get to create comedy segments, and interview people, and really create something that I believe in, and I’m so honored and humbled, truly.” POPSUGAR
