  • THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON- Episode 1030

Singh also told Fallon, 44, the name of the show, A Little Late with Lilly Singh, which will be a half-hour program with a variety of guests premiering in September in the 1:35 a.m. slot.

Singh will announce her new gig on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight (see preview clip above).

With the hire, Lilly will become the only woman to host a late night talk show on the Big 4 networks: ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. "I'm super honored and humbled".

The move comes in the wake of Carson Daly announcing he's stepping down as the host of Last Call.

A Little Late will run for 30 minutes, and see Singh conducting in-studio interviews as well as running pre-taped comedy sketches and segments.

Some Indian-Canadian flair is coming to late-night TV as YouTube star and comedian Lily Singh becomes the first woman of colour to host a late-night talk show on a major USA broadcast network. When Jimmy asked what the show was going to be like, Lilly said, "Kind of like my YouTube channel but now I will have more than three staff members". "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild". I'm so grateful and overwhelmed to be joining this incredible family. I'm numb. I can't even process. She posted her debut video on the platform eight years ago, and has since garnered 14 million subscribers, along with almost six million more on Twitter and over eight million fans on Instagram, making her one of the most successful YouTube personalities of all time. "This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you". She's also a New York Times bestselling author ("How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life"), and as appeared as an actress in films such as "Bad Moms", "Ice Age: Collision Course", and HBO's "Fahrenheit 451".

The comedian, who hails from Scarborough, Ont., is taking over from Carson Daly on NBC.

In February, Singh came out as bisexual in an emotional message on Twitter. "But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers", she wrote. There's so many people to thank and I will do so over the next few (or hundred) posts.
