Lilly Singh Spills the Tea About Her New NBC Late-Night Show


-Amazing stuff happening.
But tonight, and I’m so happy
you chose our show,
you have a big announcement.
-I do.
I mean a lot of things —
[ Drumroll ]
Don’t start so soon!
Oh, my God!
You’re giving me
a heart attack already.
Gee, Quest over there,
he’s like, “Let’s go.
Let’s keep it rolling.”
Well, yeah,
I do have a big announcement.
I mean, I’ve done a lot
of exciting things this year.
You know, I’ve started
my own production company,
called
Unicorn Island Productions.
-Yeah.
Unicorn Island.
-And so, I’m really into just
creating dope things.
And so, I did I want to announce
something on this show,
but before I do, I want to say
I could not be more thrilled
to do it on this show,
and I really do mean this,
Jimmy, because I know you all
watch him,
and he’s so funny,
but Jimmy is one of the nicest
human beings on this planet.
Truly, I mean that.
I really, really mean that.
[ Cheers and applause ]
From the very first time
I came on this show —
From the very first time I came
till right now,
you’ve been such a supporter
and such a champion.
So I want to
say thank you to you
for letting me announce it
on this show,
and I’m forever grateful.
But I do have an announcement,
and that is
that your girl is getting her
own NBC late-night show!
[ Cheers and applause ]
-Yes!
♪♪
Welcome!
-Thank you!
-Congratulations!
[ Cheers and applause ]
All right, wait.
Let’s stop.
You’re getting your own show?
-I am.
And to clarify,
it’s not Jimmy’s slot.
-Okay, I was gonna say,
that would be
a horrible announcement.
“Yeah. Oh. Yeah.”
-And this is how you find out.
-The new host of
“The Tonight Show,” yeah.
I know, and I’m so excited.
But it’s called —
Can I tell you what it’s called?
-Yes. It has a name?
-It has a name.
-Yes.
-It’s called “A Little Late
with Lilly Singh.”
-Oh, come on.
-I know, I know.
-When does it premiere?
Do we know?
-So, fallish,
probably September.
-Wow.
-And I’m so excited because
I truly get to create a show
from scratch.
You know,
I get to make it inclusive,
I get to create comedy segments
and interview people
and really create something
that I believe in.
And I’m so honored and humbled.
-What’s the show gonna be like?
-Kind of like
my YouTube channel, but just,
you know, now I have more
than three staff members.
[ Laughter ]
And my sound guy
won’t also be an extra
and won’t also
write the scripts.
So, it’s like — it’s nice.
-So it’s gonna be me,
then Seth Meyers, and then you.
-Yeah!
-You’re in the
NBC late-night family.
-I mean…
-That’s good stuff.
-Can I just say…?
[ Cheers and applause ]
-That’s a good block.
That’s a good block right there.
-Can I just say —
I mean, I got to just say
a huge shout-out to all the
women who have been before me
and are currently in the space,
because I couldn’t have done it
without them paving the path.
Truly, I couldn’t have.
-I totally agree.
-But I do think
it’s a little awesome
for Indian-Canadian women, also.
-Aha! Come on, man.
Breaking records.
-So I’m super-honored
and humbled.
-Are you gonna have a desk?
-I don’t know.
I’m trying to decide
if I want a desk.
I really don’t know.
-Do you want to try it out?
-Okay. Okay.
Okay. Okay.
All right.
Thank you so much.
All right.
-I love your energy.
I love your energy.
-Oh, thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you, my friend.
Congrats on your success.
-Hello, my friend.
“Congrats on your success.”
[ Laughs ]
-Oh, my God.
This is pretty —
Should I ask you
some questions, then?
-Yeah, go ahead.
-All right, cool.
So, Jimmy —
Jimmy Fallon, everyone.
Jimmy Fallon, everyone.
[ Cheers and applause ]
I love this guy.
I love this guy.
Also has one of the biggest
YouTube channels in the world.
So, do you have any advice
for a new host?
Asking for a friend.
[ Laughter ]
Do you have any advice
for someone that might,
you know, be hosting?
-My advice — don’t get sick.
-Cool.
-You can’t get sick.
There’s so many people
that depend on you, crew-wise.
They have to feed
their families, but also,
the millions of people watching.
They need to see,
so do not get sick.
If you can control that
in anyway.
-Is it too late for me
to go back?
[ Laughter ]
-I think my real advice is,
and you already know this —
that’s why
you’re very successful —
is just to be yourself.
And you’re fantastic as you.
Everyone can smell
if you’re phony or not yourself,
and don’t be somebody else,
be you,
and that’s why you’re great.
-Thank you so much.
[ Cheers and applause ]
And what do you do
when you’re nervous?
What do you do
when you’re nervous?
-How do you get rid of nerves?
-The adrenaline just takes over.
It’s just such a rush.
It’s so much fun.
And you’re gonna have
so many shows where you’re just
gonna mess up,
and you’re gonna be like,
“Oh, my God, it’s the worst,”
and no one will remember it.
-I love that.
-You’ll be the only person
that remembers.
-Well, I just hope I am
half of the host that you are.
-Oh. You are going to be
better than me.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Actually, we have someone here
that would like to wish you
congratulations.
-What to the who now?
-Yeah.
Because you’re in
the NBC late-night family,
everyone, please welcome
the host of
“Late Night with Seth Meyers,”
Seth Meyers!
[ Cheers and applause ]
♪♪
-Welcome to the family!
[ Cheers and applause ]
So happy are we!
-Thank you.
Oh, my God.
-Very nice of you, Seth.
Thank you for doing this.
Lilly, we’re so happy for you.
I want to take a photo now
that we’re in the NBC family.
Let’s do a cheesy family photo.
-Let’s do it.
-Here we go.
[ Camera shutter clicks ]
[ Cheers and applause ]
-Cheers, congratulations,
good luck.
To many, many years.
-Thank you.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-You’re a host now.
You want to toss to break?
-All right, yeah, yeah, okay.
Listen, we’ll be right back
with stand-up comedy
from Jimmy Carr,
so stick around.
-Oh, that was very good.
That was very good.
[ Cheers and applause ]

  1. That moment when you realize that she might host BTS someday in the future. I love my girl and I love BTS.

  2. So is this loser gonna tweet everytime i make a video? 😂 wow.. So much success yet still such a loser. Lmaoooo girl.. I pray ur getting wiser with age.. Dont repeat the same mistakes. Dumb ass.

  3. American title: the late late show with Lilly
    Indian title: better go to bed or your maa will beat your ass with a gas station roti

  4. im more excited about the production company, but yeah, we need that late show money for the prod co <3

  5. Lilly I feel your achievement as if it were a personal achievement of my own… This is HUGE! So damn proud of you! You go girl, we're rooting for you!

  6. A Little Late With Lilly Singh Will Probably Replace The 1:38 AM Time Slot On NBC After They Air The Final Episode Of Last Call With Carson Daily

  7. Didnt she say that more people watch YouTube than normal tv?? Shes gonna lose some of her audience because most people do watch youtube videos everyday than tv.

  8. i truly truly hope she succeeds. i mean, E! gave grace helbig a show; ellen gave tyler oakley a segment; netflix gave colleen a show; heck, nickelodeon gave lucas a full season and a movie. and they all were, well, let's just say their youtube viewership and popularity didn't exactly translate over to the more traditional format of television (yes, i consider netflix a traditional formatting. when u have enough capital to start original series, u're pretty much part of the majority, on par w tv networks) don't get me wrong, i love lilly, but they way she talks is at times is a lil cringey and awkward; and the only way to skip that on tv, is to change the channel.. also on youtube, it's her video, she's the star. but truth is, in the eyes of tv viewers, nobody really knows her. truthfully, how many of her youtube viewers are actually gonna translate to tv viewers just cause she's on it? youtube viewers work this way, "oh, the creator i was watching stopped posting, i'll find some other youtuber to watch." that's not a stable and loyal viewership. i get she wants to prove that small youtubers can make it on tv. but youtubers' all about being relatable. whilst hollywood's all about being unrelatable. and that ups their star factor; because they're now providing a 'dream' (not like an aspiration but more of an image) of what it's like to be a star. i truly truly hopes she succeeds because i'd like to see some représentation gg on in the late night scene and i love her work ethic and attitude. she just needs a lil more hollywood and be a lil more calm, more settled when she talks (she sounds like she's gonna bounce off a wall most of the time and that tends to tire viewers out) and i truly hope for the best for her <3 #teamsuper

  9. there are so many established female comedians why are they getting a youtuber. i feel like this shows gonna flop

  10. Her fans are so polite to simply say they have outgrown her comedy but can still appreciate her achievements. ♡♡♡♡ love that. As pure energy as the Liza David break up

  11. How immature an unprofessional is she. Is Nbc desperate. She is not Talk Show material in any form. This is going to be an Epic flop.

  12. First brown girl (indo canadian)to have a hollywood talk show…..its such a big moment….i mean although i have nothing to do in life yet i m sooooo proud of her😍😘😘

  13. That's crazy ….she made it!…hats off…well done… perseverance at its finest ..stand up Canada!!!!!

  14. I'm coming here after finding out that Colleen is going to be on Broadway. Big things are happening for YouTubers.

  15. First brown skin to have her own show. Proud of her and lots of luck to her. ❤❤❤ 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦❤❤❤

  16. Really glad direct tv dropped NBC. Her show will be terrible, with all the actually funny and talented female comedians out there NBC picks someone from YouTube that makes funny faces. Honestly how do you find someone less funny than Carson Daly?

    Is that kid who plays with toys going to take over when Jimmy inevitably gets canceled? Is his band just going to be epic rap battles?

  17. What if in one of the episodes her guests were BTS and in an another episode her guests were BLACKPINK?

  18. This showed up in my recommended and it's so close to premiering and I'm so excited to watch every single episode of it
