Singh has landed a rare chance to host a late night talk show on a major broadcast network -- a feat for a woman of colour.

She will replace Carson Daly as the host of NBC's late night talk show. The show will be re-titled "A Little Late with Lilly Singh" and will launch in September, making her the only woman to currently host a late night talk show on one of the big networks, reported
