YouTube sensation Lilly Singh made history late Monday night/early Tuesday morning when she became the first Punjabi to host a late-night show on a major US network.
“A Little Late With Lilly Singh” took over the 1:35 a.m. slot on NBC, which “Last Call With Carson Daly” held for 17 years. But, in honor of her roots, Singh debuted her first episode at 10 p.m. Monday on YouTube.
Singh is the daughter of Punjabi immigrants in Canada. She rose to fame under the name “Superwoman” on her YouTube channel, which amassed nearly 15 million subscribers. Singh also penned the bestseller, “How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life.” Readers selected the book as the winner of the Goodreads Choice Awards – Best Nonfiction in 2007.
She joins a shortlist of women who have hosted late-night shows on major networks. Check out the highlights from the show here:
