Continuing her career-long trend of breaking boundaries, Singh's hosting position will make her the only woman now helming a late-night show on any of the four big US networks, according to Variety.

As one of the most successful and lucrative YouTube stars ever (where she's known as IISuperwomanII), Singh has amassed more than 14 million subscribers on her channel.

Singh's appointment is historic, as it makes her the only woman to now lead a late-night show on a broadcast network. Okay. *breathe* I'm THRILLED (and crying) to announce that ya girl is getting her own @nbc late night show!

Lilly will fit right in with the slate of late-night hosts, as she's no stranger to making millions of people laugh and already counts celebrities among her friends (hi, Selena Gomez).

The new show will be called A Little Late with Lilly Singh, and it will air at 1:30 am ET, starting this September, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "But I do think it's a little awesome".

At the moment, there are no female late-night hosts on broadcast networks. "Now that is a dream come true", Singh told Fallon.


"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.

He added, "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".

Daly announced last month "Last Call" would be ending after 17 years to focus on his roles on NBC's "Today", "The Voice" and The Golf Channel, and to spend more time with his family.

"I I can't even believe I am writing this caption. No matter how many "boxes" you check, I encourage you to do the same". The Indian-Canadian now has over 14 million subscribers. "But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers", she wrote.

Alongside her YouTube career, Singh has also appeared in several films including Bad Moms, Ice Age: Collision Course and HBO's Fahrenheit 451.

In 2017, the York University graduate released the book "How to be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life".
