Saturday Night Live is finally returning this fall and Keeping up with the Kardashians fans will be happy to know Kim K. will be on TV once more hosting the show. According to Yahoo! she will host the second episode of the new season, which is a pretty big deal as fans anxiously await the return of the comedy show.

Despite the excitement of Kim K. lovers everywhere, some aren’t sold on her big hosting gig. Actress Debra Messing, who is well known for her time on Will & Grace is one of those confused people.

“Why Kim Kardashian? I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch,” Debra says. “Am I missing something?”

One fan responds saying they agree and usually the host has talent Yahoo! shares.

“I had the same exact question as soon as I saw that and I still have no answer. I’m sure Kanye will be involved somehow. I’m not sure I want to waste my time with that episode,” the fans says according to Yahoo!. “And might I point out, the hosts usually have some kind of talent. Other than being famous for being famous.”

Does she need to have talent?

It should be noted that the hosts have been from just about everywhere as of late. For example, Elon Musk certainly wasn’t singing and dancing during his time as the host. That is why there is a musical guest every week after all.
While it may not be exactly who some Saturday Night Live fans were hoping for, there will be plenty of episodes in the season that are full of new and exciting hosts. Surely Kim Kardashian won’t ruin the entire episode just by hosting. Not to mention, Owen Wilson will be hosting the episode before so that will certainly be a good episode.
