Saturday Night Live, a show people still watch sometimes, and Donald Trump, a person who might actually be president if we don’t stop joking about him being president, are reuniting on November 7.
The last time Trump hosted the show was in 2004, when he wanted to tell everyone about his new show, The Apprentice.
“After just one season, I am about to become the highest-paid television personality in America,” he said in his opening monologue. “And as everyone in this room knows, ‘highest-paid’ means ‘best’,” said Trump during his monologue then, which will likely be modest in comparison to what he’ll deliver next month.
NBC, if you recall, announced it will sever ties with The Donald just a few months ago after his asinine comments on immigrants, cutting the Trump-produced Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants and excluding him as host from The Celebrity Apprentice.
Obviously ratings, well, trump morality in this business, which explains SNLs enthusiasm to feature the self-proclaimed “ratings machine.” A September 11th episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon gave the late night program its highest Friday ratings in 18 months.
