Influencer superstar Lilly Singh’s is officially taking over for Carson Daly on NBC’s 1:35 am talk show!
The show will be called “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” and will launch in September, this will make her the only female to currently host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks! Talk about a HUGE deal.
She will be conducting in-studio interviews as well as feature pre-taped comedy sketches and other “signature elements.” Guess we will have to wait and see what that means. haha
