Lilly Singh’s time on NBC ’s late-night roster has come to an end. NBC is ending A Little Late With Lilly Singh after a two-season run. The host will segue into a first-look producing de…

Added Toby Gorman, president of Universal TV Alternative Studio: “We are thrilled to bring even more laughter to Universal Television Alternative Studio by partnering with Lilly Singh. Time and time again, Lilly has proven herself as a creative visionary and storyteller who captivates and engages audiences. We look forward to seeing what exciting projects come to life for everyone to enjoy.”

Singh’s show ran for two seasons on NBC. The series returned for its second season Jan. 11 with a new showrunner — Neil Punsalan (Comedy Central’sDoing the Most With Phoebe Robinson), who replaced Aliyah Silverstein — and a largely new writing staff as well as a new set that saw the host abandon the traditional desk-and-couch set-up for a house in Los Angeles that gave Singh more room to move around and try new things.

Singh said in a statement (read it in full, below) that she had a desire to pivot to longer form content focused on underrepresented stories, which she noted was difficult to accomplish while hosting a nightly series.Singh replaced Carson Daly in the slot that airs after headtopics.com

as the only woman to host a late-night series for a major linear network. (Amber Ruffin hosts a series on NBCU streamer Peacock.)Singh was a surprising choice to replace Daly after his nearly 20-year run. The YouTube star with north of 30 million followers on social was the only woman to host a broadcast late-night show. She was also the first bisexual woman of color to front a late-night series.

 The news comes as NBCUniversal TV and Streaming’s new exec regime is beginning to make moves. Frances Berwick and Susan Rovner now oversee a content group that includes NBC, Peacock and six cable networks. NBC is poised to present its 2020-21 schedule to ad buyers later this month.

Here’s Singh’s statement:Two years ago, I embarked on the wild journey of late night TV. I knew this show was about more than me, and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity and support. Today, I write to you from a similar place of deep gratitude to share some news. headtopics.com

I’m going to focus on the slate of projects my company Unicorn Island Productions is developing, and we’re saying goodbye toA Little Late with Lilly Singh. I have a desire to make longer form content telling underrepresented stories, which is difficult to execute on a nightly show.

This leads me to two very exciting announcements!!  I’m thrilled to share that NBCUniversal and I have taken the next step in our relationship by signing a first look deal between Universal Television Alternative Studio and Unicorn Island Productions. I’m excited about bringing even more diversity to screen in an even bigger way.

I also get to share the news that I am developing a comedy project with the wonderful folks at Netflix. It will be Executive Produced by the talented Kenya Barris and his team at Khalabo Ink Society, along with writers/executive producers Nell Scovell and Diya Mishra. And ya girl is starring in it!

 This is just the beginning; I can’t wait to share more with you but this is all I can tease for now. I’m beyond grateful for your support past, present and future.  And to the Late with Lilly crew, I’m so proud of the progress we made in diversifying late night. We’ve given 21 people their late-night debut this season! That’s pretty incredible and it’s been a true honour.  headtopics.com

What IS that creature? A stray Shih Tzu needed a haircut so badly you could barely tell it was a dog. But post-shave, CNN's Jeanne Moos reports, a star is born.

Good. comedy must be hard when u cant do 60 mins of “trump bad” jokes shes doing what a great comedians do...give up their late night comedy shows to pursue “underrepresented stories” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 they tried to push her so hard! shes a woman w a late night comedy show!!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 Who? You mean it was as funny as an STI and hemorrhaging audience share.

Quite the spin. Good decision. Her late night show just wasn’t that great. I wish her the best! The show never worked - didn't understand why they comited to a 2nd season. Why is NBCUniversal not using that slot to try out some interesting programming - both Linda Ellerbee and Bob Costas did programming that was perfect for end of night.

The pilot was so bad that I assumed they it after a few episodes... Really? You mean her hacky, sexist, misandrist blacksploitating, racist brand of woke bs comedy didn't work out? Shocking. This is the first time I've heard of this person.

She had a late night show? Another person failing upward. Watching paint dry is entertaining than that show. Junk in case anybody didn't get it... Lilly Singh Ending NBC Late-Night Show, Will Star in Netflix Comedy From Kenya Barris I would say give Amber Ruffin that timeslot but I dont want her to be overworked esp since she's putting out good quality.

Hate to see it go Season 1 went so bad that even trying to salvage the second season through 'keeping it contained,' didn't help. I think Lilly took to long to go mainstream, which explains why none of the projects she's releasing now are banging like before. She's still talented though and funny it was a flop anyway

I'll save you some time. 'I am a woman/colored woman/bisexual colored woman' There. Every single 'joke' she produces ends like this. Finally she was awful
