When is Kim Kardashian Hosting 'SNL'? Here's Everything You Need to Know

Kim Kardashian will be hosting Saturday Night Live this October. The reality star-turned-entrepreneur has recently wowed with her surprising Met Gala look, and now will be heading onto the small screen.

Kardashian is a hugely popular figure after 20 seasons with her family on E! reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians, from which she built an empire.

That empire includes Skims, her clothing brand; KKW Beauty, a cosmetics company; and Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, a cellphone game, as well as many endorsements.

She has taken small acting roles before her SNL show, including in her husband Kanye West's now-famous "Bound 2" music video, but this will be a new attempt at sketch comedy, supported by the SNL players.

Here is everything there is to know about Kardashian's upcoming Saturday Night Live appearance.
