NEW YORK — “Saturday Night Live” is about to get “huge.”
Donald Trump, the GOP frontrunner and brash businessman, will host NBC’s long-running sketch show on November 7.
For Trump, the appearance is both a campaign stop and a return to NBC, the network that televised his reality show “The Apprentice” for over a decade.
Trump and NBC severed ties over the summer after he entered the Republican presidential race. But he has since appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and agreed to several interviews with NBC News programs.
His return to 30 Rockefeller Center for “SNL” is sure to garner even more attention.
Trump has hosted “SNL” once before, on April 3, 2004.
Trump will be live from New York alongside musical guest Sia.
Last month Trump suggested that he was in talks with NBC about a surprise appearance.
During an interview with CNN, host Alisyn Camerota asked, “has ‘SNL’ asked you to go on this season? Would you consider it?”
Trump answered cryptically: “I’m not allowed to say that.”
She pressed: “Because… you’re in negotiations with them?” And he said: “I’m just not allowed to say it. I mean, I have– uh– silencio. I can’t speak about it.”
