I wonder how many death threats she's received since the announcement.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: I wonder how many death threats she's received since the announcement.


Probably a few hundred, all from neckbeards living in their mother's basements.

No one is going to watch that. Give her 3 months tops.

Jay Leno was a boring-ass late night host, and he did it for years.  She's interesting and funny.

People knew who he was before he got the late night gig.

I always thought Leno was a schmo even when he guest hosted for Carson.  Letterman should have gotten that job, not Captain Shovel Jaw.

Thumb down.

No one watches late night anymore, the host is not the issue.

She'll probably be on for years. Hell, I didn't even know Carson Daily still had a show...

Nobody yet?

WHO?

Lilly Singh. It's right there in the headline.

And desertgeek already asked the question:

Well she can't possibly be worse than Carson Daly, so she has that going for her.

If I was one of her fans, this would annoy the shiat out of me.  A YouTube show is easily accessible, but where do you even go to watch Late Night with Carson Daly?  This would feel like throwing up a barrier, and for what?  The chance to interview nobodies pushing films nobody is going to see?

Some sort of potato/flower hybrid, if her honorific is to be believed.

One of those over the air subchannels runs daily reruns of Carson. Like channel 44.3 or something. I always wonder who watches that.

influencer

Someone with lack of intelligence and a lot of free time, followed by tons of idiots on some social network, usually instagram. "Influencers" are called so because their opinion worths something only to primates with IQ lower than room temperature, therefore those primates tend to follow influencer's actions without thinking about it.

Like Carson, does she do butt stuff?

Intriguing.

ITT: grumpy middle-aged Gen-Xers shout at clouds.

She's got a reasonably successful "show" on YouTube with millions of subscribers and she's parlaying it into a stint on network TV. Good for her. Take the money and run.

Televisions are large format multi-media devices. Does submitter stream everything to his/her phone?

The beibs was discovered on YouTube.  Do you feel the same about him?

Carson said as much but didn't own the show

I watched a few of her vids almost 10 years ago, and I've seen her channel advertised on busses in NYC. She's a farking funny person with great camera presence. Should do fine as a talking head on late night tv.

Okay, but she's an entertainer. She does comedy bits, skits, she's had several celebrities on her channel (The Rock, to name just one), she's also gone on tour. You can't have a sold-out tour if you're just an "influencer". I've watched a handful of her videos and she's not for me but she's an entertainer, no different than any other late night host. She's just developed her audience and platform on YouTube first.

Then that's fine, but I'm sick to the back teeth of useless morons with a camera and an ego who call themselves influencers without earning the accolade first, then think they're worth something because they've got a free profile on social media that cost nothing to create.
