With her new show, Lilly Singh will be replacing Last Call host and former MTV VJ Carson Daly, who will be stepping down after 17 seasons. Her show is set to launch in September and will be executively produced by Singh, making her the only female to currently host a late-night talk show on one of the four big networks.
With this, the internet sensation joins the likes of Samantha Bee and Busy Phillipps as one of the few women in this category.
