The good news: Lilly Singh’s new late-night show premieres tonight. The better news: we can watch the first episode before it even airs on TV.
Last night, the Canadian YouTuber announced that the debut episode of A Little Late with Lilly Singh will be available to stream on YouTube at 10 p.m. ET – more than two hours before its regular network television timeslot. “Whenever I can give you what you want… I will,” Singh wrote on Instagram. “This is bigger than me. This is bigger than you. This one is for the culture!!”
Singh will also be commenting on the live-stream chat tonight.
With the premiere of her show, Singh becomes the first woman of colour to host a late-night show on a major network since Wanda Sykes had a short-lived weekly show a decade ago. Last week, it was revealed that Mindy Kaling would be the show’s first guest. Other guests this week include Tracee Ellis Ross and Chelsea Handler.
In Canada, A Little Late with Lilly Singh will air weeknights on Global at 12:35 a.m. ET.
