Lilly Singh to Host NBC Late-Night Show, Replacing Carson Daly

The Wrap Friday, 15 March 2019 ()
Lilly Singh to Host NBC Late-Night Show, Replacing Carson DalyYouTube star Lilly Singh will takeover Carson Daly’s old late-night timeslot on NBC, the network announced on Thursday.

“A Little Late with Lilly Singh” will air at 1:35 a.m. beginning in September, making Singh the only woman to host a late-night show on any of the four major broadcast networks. The half-hour program will combine in-studio interviews, pre-taped comedy sketches and “signature segments.”

The announcement of Singh’s new show follows last month’s news that Daly’s “Last Call” would come to an end after 17 years and 2,000 episodes. She is set to formally announce the news during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday.

Singh becomes the latest digital star to make the foray into late-night, with a YouTube channel that boasts more than 14 million subscribers. Her film and TV credits include HBO’s recent “Fahrenheit 451” adaptation, “Bad Moms” and “Ice Age: Collision Course.”

She also previously starred in the Kenya Barris pilot “Bright Futures” for NBC, alongside Emily Ratajkowski, “The Get Down” alum Shameik Moore and “American Vandal” stars Calum Worthy and Jimmy Tatro. The pilot ultimately was not picked up to series.

“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.”

“Lilly is truly a star and we’re thrilled to welcome her to our NBC family,” said Doug Vaughan, Executive Vice President, Special Programs and Late Night, NBC Entertainment. “She is a multi-talented performer who will surely have a great rapport with not only all her guests but also with our devoted late-night audience. We can’t wait to get started.”

“A Little Late with Lilly Singh” will be produced by Universal Television and Unicorn Island Productions. Singh will executive produce and Polly Auritt will co-executive produce.
