Singh announced the news on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (March 13), explaining: "I'm so excited, because I truly get to create a show from scratch". She said the show would be "kind of like my YouTube channel, but now I have more than three staff members".
She will be the only female late-night host on the big four USA networks. "Your girl is getting her own late NBC show!" exclaimed Singh, as the show's studio audience burst into applause.
"An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show? Now that is a dream come true", Singh said in a press release.
"Lilly is truly a star and we're thrilled to welcome her to our NBC family", Doug Vaughan, NBC Entertainment's executive vice president of special programs and late night, 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". She has uploaded a range of viral videos (772 total) and comedic sketches like "Comedy Skit with Dr. Phil Gone Wrong" to "How To Make A Migos Song".
Lilly Singh shared her joy on Instagram as she wrote, "I can't even believe I am writing this caption. This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you".
In 2017, Forbes ranked Singh tenth among the highest paid YouTube stars with earnings of $10.5 million. But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers. 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".
