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 USA networks, according to Variety.

Singh's appointment is historic, as it makes her the only woman to now lead a late-night show on a broadcast network.

Singh's prime placement on NBC can not be overstated, however, and it's genuinely nice to see the network choosing someone like her to take over for Daly given the late-night genre's "boys' club" feel for decades.

Singh's YouTube channel, known as IISuperwomanII, has over 14 million subscribers. 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". She said she's yet to decide if she'll incorporate the tradition desk format on her new show. "We can't wait to get started". "Now that is a dream come true", Lilly had joked on Jimmy Fallon's show, right after announcing her new NBC show.

Like Last Call, A Little Late will be a half-hour program with Singh conducting in-studio interviews with a variety of guests.

Daly announced last month that he would be bringing an end to his show, saying that he is hoping to focus on new projects, as well his job as the host of the network's popular singing show The Voice. In 2017, Forbes listed her as one of the top 10 highest earning Youtubers, earning a reported $10.5 million.

In February, Singh came out as bisexual in an emotional message on Twitter.

"✅ Female ✅ Coloured ✅ Bisexual ••• Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time". 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". There's so many people to thank and I will do so over the next few (or hundred) posts.
