GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is showing no signs of giving up the media spotlight anytime soon. USA Today reports that Trump is scheduled to host the NBC sketch show “Saturday Night Live.”
Trump is lined up for the Nov. 7 installment of the show, with Sia on tap as musical guest. It will be Trump’s second time as host, following an appearance back in 2004.
“Expect an audience bump for the Republican presidential candidate’s appearance,” USA Today notes. “An August Republican debate on Fox News Channel, powered by front-runner Trump’s presence, set a primary debate record with 24 million viewers. A September Republican debate on CNN drew an impressive 22.9 million viewers.”
“SNL” averaged 6.2 million viewers last November, and this season’s premiere Oct. 3, featuring Miley Cyrus as host, brought in 6.3 million, the report notes.
