NBC shakes up sennat tv that gives Carson Daly's slot to a color wife, a star on YouTube.
The network said Thursday that a new show entitled "A Little Late with Lilly Singh," flying at 13:35 EDT begins in September.
Singh will be the only woman to host a daily nightly show on a major broadcast network.
Her half-hour program will include in-studio interviews and pre-taped comedy sketches, NBC said.
Singh called the prospect of being an Indian-Canadian woman with her own sennat show "a dream that is fine."
Her Acting credits include HBO's film "Fahrenheit? 451", "Bad Moms" and "Ice Age: Collision Course."
Singh's YouTube channel, where she creates comic and other videos, has more than 14 million subscribers, NBC said.
Last month, Daly said he decided it was time to end his last call show as he focused on new and continuing projects as a host and producer of NBC's "The Voice. "
